About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States. It is a convenient method for the long-term reduction or removal of unwanted hair on the face and/or body. This treatment typically leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother while providing longer-lasting results compared to other options for hair removal. Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL performs safe and effective laser hair removal treatments for both men and women in common areas such as the arms, back, legs, face, armpits, and intimate areas.

Laser hair removal is a gentle procedure that is effective for most individuals. During your consultation, you will go over your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal techniques (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have dark hair and light skin
- Are in overall, good health
At your appointment, you will be allowed to relax in one of our treatment rooms as areas are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and lotions. During laser hair removal, a technician will slightly stretch the skin to provide a direct path between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser beam will target and kill the hair follicle, preventing it from growing back. On average, you will need 6 sessions over a period of 36 weeks to achieve your best results. Your treatments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to cycle into the active growth phase so they can be treated. The specialized laser hair removing technology we use at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center is able to target the hair follicle alone, preserving the skin in the treatment area.
What to Expect
While laser hair removal is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from exercise or sun exposure for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your session, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to alleviate any discomfort.
