About Laser Hair Removal
Hair removal with a laser has become one of the most popular elective procedures done in America. It's an effective method for the long-lasting reduction or removal of unwanted hair on the face and/or body. This treatment typically leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother while providing longer-lasting results compared to other common methods. Our plastic surgeons, Drs. James Romanelli, John Layliev, and David Pincus, at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY perform safe and effective laser hair removal services for both men and women in common areas such as the arms, legs, back, face, armpits, and bikini area.
"My breast reduction, even though just a week ago, has been life changing. I was able to turn my head again immediately from not being able to do so for almost a year. Post-Op was definitely nothing like the horror stories I heard. I was able to recover very quickly and really did not experience much pain or discomfort. Thank you, Dr Romanelli and staff, for your kindness and excellent care you have provided. -JP ."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 13, 2018

"Five Stars - Getting a breast augmentation and lift was the best decision I ever made. I asked about 4 people who they went to and they all said Romanelli and that he is the best. They were they right!! As soon as I met him, I knew I was in good hands. I absolutely love my results! Thank you Dr. Romanelli!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Sep 11, 2018
"Face Lift - Dr. Romanelli is an exceptional doctor who manages a wonderful practice. Everyone is so professional and they work together as a team.I was happy to see the office was updated with a separate exit or entrance for patients who want privacy before or after surgery."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Sep 09, 2018
"I had a tummy tuck done and lipo to the back and hips almost four months ago and could not be happier with the results. It has been life changing. After four consultations with other plastic surgeons I have to say nobody had Dr. Romanelli's bed side manor. I felt like I was I good hands and not just another patient."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 05, 2018
Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that is effective for many individuals. During your initial consultation, we will go over your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal techniques (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have dark hair and light skin
- Are in good, overall physical health
On the day of your appointment, you will be allowed to lie in a private treatment room as areas of the face and body are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and lotions. During the procedure, a team member will slightly stretch the area that is being treated to create a clear pathway between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser beam will focus on and kill the follicle, preventing the hair from growing again. On average, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to achieve your best results. Your treatments are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to cycle into the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The specialized laser hair removing technology we use at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery targets only the hair follicle, preserving the skin and other tissue in the treatment areas.
What to Expect
Although laser hair removal is mostly gentle, you may look like you have a slight sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid exercise or sun exposure for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following a session, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to alleviate any mild discomfort.
