Laser hair removal is a procedure that our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, offers at his private practice in Phoenix, AZ. The treatment uses the energy and heat from the laser to safely break down the hair follicles and interrupt their growth cycle. After a few sessions, patients begin to notice drastic hair reduction and even removal from the treated area. The most common areas that receive laser treatments are the chin, upper lip, eyebrows, legs, underarms, and bikini area. Patients can schedule an appointment at G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C. today to start their hair reduction treatments.
The best candidates for laser hair removal are:
- Patients with dark, thick hair
- Patients who have shaved the area before treatment
- Patients who are seeking a long-term hair removal alternative
- Patients who have realistic expectations for their outcome

Before the laser treatment is administered, patients can ask for a numbing cream to help the process feel more comfortable. Our aesthetician will give the patient safety goggles to wear, and then proceed by turning on the laser that will be administered through a handheld device. The device will also have bursts of cold air continually accompanying the laser to help cool the area and reduce discomfort. The treatment is very quick, lasting only a few minutes and causes a mild burning or heating sensation. The patient can apply soothing lotion after their treatment if desired and return to their normal activities right after.
Results may be visible after 1 – 2 sessions, but a patient typically needs 4 – 6 sessions to attain their full outcome. Patients can expect to see their full hair reduction results within a few weeks following their final session. Overall, the treated area should be considerably smoother with a slower growth rate. Results can last years, though a shift in hormones such as pregnancy can cause the hair to grow back.
If you’re tired of constantly shaving or waxing, and want to remove the pain and time associated with traditional hair removal methods, then laser hair removal could be the option for you. In a few, short sessions, you could have the smooth skin that you desire. Schedule an appointment at our Phoenix, AZ office today to start your hair removal treatments.
