Can West Linn area patients enjoy permanent hair removal?

When patients are unhappy with hair on specific areas of the body and face, they may feel self-conscious about their appearance. They may spend hours each week, and lots of money, on removing the hair in traditional ways such as waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. Instead of spending time and money on grooming unwanted hair, many patients are advised to consider the benefits of laser hair removal in the West Linn area.

Laser hair removal is done at the practice of Dr. Adam Maddox, a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist at Thrive Portland. Dr. Adam Maddox provides a wide range of anti-aging solutions as well as cosmetic treatments that are commonly used for patients seeking improvement in their looks and the way they feel. From hormone replacement therapy to laser hair removal, he offers a way for patients to enjoy their appearance and a better quality of life.

Laser hair removal is one way for patients to address unwanted hair permanently. This treatment can be used most anywhere on the body, including the face. The most commonly requested treatment areas include the:

  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini line
  • Legs

Dr. Adam Maddox has seen laser hair removal greatly improve over time. In fact, the procedure used to target only patients with fair skin and dark hair. Now, patients of all ethnicities can enjoy the benefits of treatment without having to worry whether or not they are an appropriate candidate.

Laser hair removal does require several treatment sessions for patients to achieve the results they desire. It is important that they understand one session will provide just a reduction of hair in the area, but not full removal. This is due to the growth cycle of hair. The laser light can only target hair in the active growth phase, so regular visits spaced weeks apart are the best way to achieve full hair removal in the treatment area.

Patients in and around the West Linn area are encouraged to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Adam Maddox and his staff to learn about laser hair removal treatments.
