If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair.  At the office of Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa we offer Alma Laser Hair Removal, which offers a pain-free to become hair-free.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Predictability. Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to six sessions.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is more than just ”zapping” unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure.
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for 3 weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.
You should also avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

The night before or the morning of the procedure, you will need to shave the area you would like to be treated. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
You and the technician will need to wear appropriate eye protection during the procedure. It will also be necessary to protect the outer layers of your skin with a cold gel or special cooling device. This will help the laser light penetrate the skin.
Next, the technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings were used and to check for bad reactions.
You may schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later. You’ll get treatments until hair stops growing.
Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. Virtually pain-free, safely and visibly reduces unwanted hair over a series of treaments.  We offer laser hair removal for the following areas:

Hair Removal Lasers are NOT all the same
Hair removal technology has been around for a while now and the industry has a range of options. Likewise, some very old fashioned hair removal lasers may still be in operation. Many hair removal lasers utilize a micro-second’s worth of hot laser light to attack the unwanted hair. Imagine what this feels like penetrating your skin? Perhaps the level of pain and discomfort was the reason why some people never finished their hair removal treatments.
Our Alma Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ laser hair removal gives our patients an alternative. While pain tolerance is subjective, most people find the treatment not just tolerable, but comfortable. So now that getting rid of that hair on your back doesn’t involve pain and suffering, shouldn’t you give it a try? Learn more about it by calling our office soon, since we are running laser specials only until the end of August.

Laser hair removal



A lot of people are wanting to know what’s all the buzz about laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is the #1 non-invasive aesthetics treatment available today with an estimated growth rate of 18%. This procedure can replace other methods of removing hair, leaving long-lasting results that are less time consuming than shaving and less painful than waxing. If you’re considering laser hair removal as an option, here are some things to keep in mind.
The idea of a laser beam may seem intimidating, but the reality is that laser hair removal is a highly advanced and safe way to reduce hair growth. There will be a low-energy laser beam that passes through the skin. The beam will be attracted to the pigment of hair follicles, which is why the procedure is not as effective with red, gray and white hair. The energy from the beam will pass down the hair shaft until it’s absorbed by growing hair follicles, disabling the follicles in the deeper layers of the skin.

Patients who elect to go through this procedure should only experience temporary pain – like a hot snap, at most. But at Dr. Bishara’s office, we use Alma Lasers which provides virtually painless hair removal technology. The procedure can be used by almost anyone who has hair growing in places they’d prefer were bare. It’s not just for women – men who grow hair on their back, shoulders or other parts of the body may want to consider undergoing laser hair removal as well. Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. Laser hair removal reduces unwanted hair over a series of 6-9 treatments.
Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa specializes in a wide range of treatments, as well as face and body plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Bishara’s main focus is to help patients restore or achieve their ideal appearance in order to feel confident about the way they look.
