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.

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.

I had a double mastectomy with implants at Ochsner in 2021/2022. Post-surgery, I had chronic pain and my breasts were extremely hard and deformed. I was told for months that “It will get better” or “Give it a few more months”; however, the pain and discomfort never went away and I felt dismissed and unheard from my treatment team at Ochsner. I found Dr. Stalder through an internet search and made an appointment for consultation. Around October of 2022, we first met in his office where I voiced my symptoms and complaints and Dr. Stalder gave me what he thought my diagnosis was: capsular contracture. I thought he was crazy as my own plastic surgeon from Ochsner never once mentioned those words and Stalder had not even examined me. When I left, I searched capsular contracture on the internet and found that all of the photos showing this looked just like my breasts. I quickly booked the surgery with Dr. Stalder. Dr. Stalder performed my explant and flap surgery in January of 2023. I was told that I would likely need someone to stay with me for at least a week post-surgery. However, I was able to return home alone with friends to check on me for any needs. I went back to work in four weeks (six weeks is usually recommended). My second surgery to “smooth everything out and rearrange my nipples” was in June 2023. It was a same-day surgery and I was back to work in six days. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dr. Stalder’s office. From Jessica at the front desk to Abbie (his PA) and most of all Dr. Stalder. He knows what he’s doing and his precision is excellent. He saved me from chronic pain and the thought that my breasts were always going to be deformed after my mastectomy. I would absolutely recommend him over and over again.
