Eliminate body hair with board-certified laser hair removal treatments in Westerville, Ohio.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Excessive hair can result from certain hormones, medication use, or genetic predisposition. Even a small amount of hair can be undesirable when it is located in a prominent or unusual area, especially when it is thick and dark in color.

Our laser hair removal services are available for both men and women at Westerville Dermatology in Westerville, Ohio. To completely eliminate unwanted hair, we recommended that patients receive several treatments, which our providers discuss during an initial consultation.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
If you’re considering laser hair removal, you likely have questions about the procedure, including whether or not it’s painful and how to prepare for your treatments. Review some of the most commonly asked questions below, and be sure to contact our office to schedule your consultation and get started on your laser hair removal journey.
In most cases, laser hair removal services can provide long-lasting results, with patients experiencing hair removal for several months to several years. Some patients may require maintenance treatments to experience more long-term results. During your initial consultation, our providers will walk through what you can expect from laser hair removal and any ongoing treatments that may be necessary to maintain complete hair removal on the affected areas.
The cost of laser hair removal services depends on several factors, including the size of the area, the type of hair to remove, and additional factors that our providers discuss during the initial consultation.
Most patients report that there is some discomfort when receiving laser hair removal treatments, but it is typically minimal when compared to other forms of hair removal.
The number of sessions required for complete hair removal will vary depending on a number of factors, including the coarseness of the hair to remove, the color of the hair, and the size of the area, among others. Our board-certified providers discuss these factors to determine the number of recommended treatments to achieve the desired effect during an initial consultation, so schedule yours today to get started.
This is a very common question for patients interested in laser hair removal treatments. We recommend the following tips when preparing for your treatments in our Westerville Dermatology office:
- Avoid plucking, waxing, threading, or using depilatory creams on the hair to be treated for 2-3 weeks (or longer if possible) before your laser procedure to optimize the effectiveness of your treatment.
- Trimming the hair with scissors and/or shaving is allowed.
- Shave the treatment area approximately 24 hours before the procedure so that stubble is apparent on treatment day.
- Avoid stimulants such as caffeine on the day of your treatment to minimize discomfort.
- Hydrate well on the day of your treatment.
- Avoid sun exposure 48 hours before your treatment. Also, no sun-tanning, self-tanners, or spray tans 4 weeks prior to treatment.
- Avoid tretinoin cream (Retin-A), glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, astringents, and harsh chemicals for 48 hours over the skin that will be treated.
- If the treatment area is on or around the face, please remove all makeup before the procedure.
- Plan for the treatment area to be cleaned before the procedure.
