What if I told you there is something that can save you five to ten minutes
of your getting ready in the morning time and boost your confidence. I’m talking about the most effective laser hair removal treatment out there. We went to MidAmerica Plastic Surgery to find out why it is considered to be the best out there. We are in Maryville at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery hanging out with Dr. Ryan Diederich and we are talking about a laser hair removal that is the most effective out there. So tell us about it.

Absolutely. We use an alexandrite laser, which is really the gold standard most effective laser type in order to have near permanent hair removal.

And so how does it work and does it hurt most importantly?

It’s very effective. The way the laser works is it actually looks for the color change between your skin and the hair follicle. By targeting that, it removes the hair follicle and actually removes it permanently when it’s effective. Pain is a question we get all the time. And the pain is minimal, what’s great about the device that we have is this device actually has a cryogen. It’s a patented product they have that sprays a very light mist of cooling right over the skin that’s kind of soothing. So then when the laser pulses, the discomfort really is minimal, like a light rubber band. It’s one of the most comfortable lasers too.

That’s not that bad! And, it doesn’t take that many times to become permanent, right?

With the properly selected patients, five treatments to six treatments can actually be in eighty percent of people permanent hair removal.

Wow, and then how long are the different treatments, like the sessions themselves?

The first one takes a little bit more time because really we just have to talk
about it. After that, your additional treatments are anywhere from five to ten minutes depending on the area that you are wanting to treat.

And can you imagine how much time you are going to save on shaving in the morning? And you don’t have to be self conscious about it when you’re out at the beach or the pool?

It can be life-changing, truly.

Dr. Diederich also says that the lighter the skin you have, and the darker the hair, the more effective the treatment is. So it takes fewer times for some people.
