Unwanted body or facial hair can be time consuming and costly to get rid of. Time and money spent shaving, tweezing, epilation, or waxing can make your skin irritated, only to have the hair grow back soon after. All of these factors can cause unnecessary stress over unwanted hair, making the need for a long-term solution: laser hair removal.

At Dr. Robert Bowen, laser hair removal in Martinsburg permanently reduces hair on the face or body by killing the hair follicle and the hair’s ability to grow. The laser technology behind this treatment targets the melanin, or pigment, of the hair to zap the hair follicle at the source. Laser hair removal can work on many body zones, and patients love the long-term effects and smooth skin from this treatment.

Why try Laser Hair Removal in Martinsburg?

01

Long-Term Results

Simply put, laser hair reduction is the most effective hair removal technique. You'll enjoy unwanted body hair changing from a nuisance to an afterthought.

02

Less Skin Irritation

Many forms of hair removal come with skin irritation like razor burn, bumps, and itchiness as your hair regrows, especially shaving. Though you may experience some sensitivity right after treatment, once the hair follicles can no longer grow hair, there is virtually no irritation.

03

Increased Confidence

For some, unwanted body hair makes them feel more self-conscious in certain types of clothing or when they are naked. Laser hair removal in Martinsburg can help you feel carefree and confident in your own skin.

Pre-Treatment

  • Avoid excessive sun exposure, tanning beds, and other activities or products that increase photosensitivity.
  • Shave 24 to 48 hours before your appointment. This is to ensure the laser can easily target the hair follicle, not the hair itself.
  • Come to your appointment with clean bare skin without oils, creams, or lotions.
  • Consult with your doctor about any medications that may interact with laser hair removal.

Post-Treatment

  • Do not shave, exfoliate, or do anything else abrasive to your skin, as it is sensitive immediately after treatment.
  • If needed, apply cooling products like aloe vera.
  • Protect your skin with SPF and avoid excess sun exposure.
  • Do not use products that increase photosensitivity.
