Unwanted hair is an ongoing cosmetic concern for men and women in Monroe, Alexandria, Shreveport, the Ark-La-Miss, Southlake, TX and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana. With laser hair removal, you eliminate unwanted hair without the discomfort and short-term results of waxing and shaving. Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D., board-certified dermatologist, offers laser hair removal as a convenient in-office procedure.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a technique that destroys hair follicles and deters regrowth. Men and women prefer the approach to waxing and shaving because the hair grows back slower, if at all.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost in Monroe, LA?
The cost of laser hair removal is based upon the size of the treatment area and characteristics of the hair. We can provide pricing information at the time of your appointment with Dr. Hopkins.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

- Treatments for large and small areas without skipping

- Safe for all skin types
- Multiple settings for hair thickness and pigments
Laser energy of a specific wavelength damages the hair follicle. Depending on the stage of growth, the hair falls out immediately or after a short period of time. With repeat treatments, many patients experience permanent hair removal.
What Should I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
A laser hair removal procedure can take 15-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area. Most patients tolerate the procedure well. After the treatment, your skin may feel slightly sensitive for the first few days. Some of the hair may re-grow, so we recommend a series of treatments initially.
