At Shafer Clinic Fifth Avenue, we offer laser hair removal using the elōs Plus laser hair removal system. If you are tired of having to shave, pluck, and wax your unwanted body hair and dealing with issues like razor burn and ingrown hairs, laser hair removal can help you get rid of and manage your unwanted hair with ease.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Hair growth occurs in different phases. The elōs Plus laser system works by targeting hair that are currently in the active growing phase. The laser energy converts into heat which damages the hair follicles and prevents hair growth from occurring.
For this reason, patients will need to go through multiple laser hair treatments scheduled several weeks apart. This is to allow all the hairs in the area to enter the growth phase of the hair growing cycle so that the laser can effectively treat those hair follicles. This ensures that the treatment provides more even results.
What Areas Can You Treat with elōs Plus Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal can be used on areas all across the body. It can be safely and effectively used on large areas of the body like the back, as well as smaller more delicate areas like areas around the face where facial hair grows. Laser hair removal is commonly performed on areas like the:
- Upper lip

Cost of Laser Hair Removal
The cost of laser hair removal will depend on the amount of areas being treated and the amount of treatments needed. Dr. Shafer can discuss payment options and the cost of your laser hair removal during the consultation process. Shafer Clinic Fifth Avenue does offer financing options with CareCredit to help patients pay for their laser hair removal as well as any other procedures and treatments they may be interested in.
Recovery and Results
There is no recovery period following laser hair removal. However, the area treated will be sensitive following the treatment. You should avoid direct sunlight on the areas treated.
It will take multiple sessions to properly treat an area of the body. This is because the hairs in one area are in different phases of the hair growth process. It typically takes around three to six sessions depending on the area.
