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.

James Romanelli and John Layliev 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.
"Amazing Liquid Rhinoplasty! - I was unhappy with my facial profile so I went to Dr. Layliev for a liquid rhinoplasty(nonsurgical nose job). He listened to all my concerns, and discussed exactly how he would mold the filler to smooth the bridge of my nose. At the end he suggested adding some to the tip to give it a little turned up look, which I elected to do, and LOVE. He gave me my dream nose, all with filler, no..."- L. / RealSelf / Sep 28, 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.
