What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most common elective procedures in America. It is an effective method for the long-term removal of unwanted hair on the face and/or body. This treatment typically leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother while providing great, lasting results compared to other methods. Plastic surgeon Dr. Mark W. Stalder at Stalder Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA performs effective and safe laser hair removal treatments for both women and men in common areas, like the legs, back, arms, face, armpits, and bikini area.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Habitual waxing and/or shaving gets inconvenient. Laser hair removal performed by the staff at Stalder Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA gives a wonderful change to the traditional methods of getting rid of unattractive hair. Benefits of laser hair removal include:

  • A quick treatment with minimal discomfort for the majority of people
  • May be carried out on many parts of your body and for different types of hair
  • Makes skin smoother and softer
  • Yields long-term outcomes
  • Acts against hair regrowth between treatments
  • Prevents ingrown hairs
  • Not as repetitive as waxing or plucking

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, you will be asked to relax in one of our treatment rooms as areas of your face and body being treated are washed to eliminate dirt, oil, and creams. During the procedure, a team member will smooth out the skin to create a direct pathway between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser beam will focus on and destroy the follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you will need a handful of treatments over a month or more to see your ideal results. Your treatments are spaced out to allow the treated areas a chance to heal. This also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to cycle into the phase of active growth so they can be treated. Our specialized laser technology at Stalder Plastic Surgery targets only the hair follicle to preserve the skin and other tissue in the treated area.

About Us
How much does laser hair removal cost?

The cost of laser hair removal can vary based on the size of the treatment area, as well as how many treatment sessions you will need to get optimal results. To give you a better idea of the benefits of laser hair removal, think of the energy and time you are putting into shaving, waxing, or other methods. In comparison, laser hair removal is typically less expensive overall and can save you energy and time in the long run. Dr. Stalder and our team will create a plan for you that includes the number of appointments you need and expected costs.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

One of the main benefits of laser hair removal is that the results it produces are long-lasting. While men and women can enjoy the benefits of the procedure for many years, laser hair removal is technically semi-permanent, since some hair follicles may be unaffected. However, patients find the majority of the hair follicles are dormant after their plan has concluded, and any hairs that do pop up are very easy to manage. More laser hair removal sessions may also be needed to eliminate new growth and any stragglers.

Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?

Follicles grow in cycles. When some follicles are in a live growing phase, others are resting. Because each hair follicle grows in various stages, multiple sessions are recommended to target each hair follicle when it's active. Scheduling your sessions over several weeks is the best way to get the smoothest, most effective results.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

You may experience minor discomfort during your laser hair removal session, but it should not be especially painful. Most patients will feel a slight sting as the laser targets and removes the follicle. We may apply a numbing ointment on your skin prior to your treatment session. Our patients who have experience with waxing often tell us that laser hair removal is far more comfortable.

From the day I met Dr Stalder he always asked me what I wanted rather than force anything on me. I trusted the process from the start and in the course of a year, the work done to my body is unbelievable. The more I heal the more beautiful everything is. From him to his 5 star staff, they are truly some wonderful people. My breasts look amazing!!! I still can’t believe how it all came together! Anytime I had a question him and his team were there to provide the answers almost in the blink of an eye! I am so honored to have worked with Dr Stalder and his team. I will never forget you all as I continue on with my life. You all were a special part of my breast cancer journey. Waking up to Abby checking on me also warmed my heart. She’s such a sweetheart ! I love you all and pray you continue to do an amazing job with individuals dealing with cancer. You have restored my dignity and helped me to love myself again.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.

I had Botox done by Dr Stalder and it has been the best Botox I’ve ever received. I’ve been to plenty of different kind of providers for Botox but Dr Stalder did the best I’ve ever had. He’s professional but also easy going and easy to talk to about what you’re looking for. Jess and the rest of the staff are great at taking care of you to help you get the appointment that works best for you and making sure you are happy with your results. I’m looking forward to more treatments here at Stalder Plastic Surgery!
