What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic services in America. It is a convenient option for the long-term removal of hair follicles on the face and/or body. This treatment typically leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother, and provides longer-lasting results compared to other hair removal methods. Leslee McElrath, M.D. at Monarch Ideal Care in Fairlawn, OH performs safe and effective laser hair removal services in frequently needed areas like the legs, back, arms, face, armpits, and bikini area for both women and men.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

On the day of your appointment, you will be asked to lie in one of our treatment rooms as the targeted area is cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During the procedure, a technician will slightly stretch the area to provide a direct pathway between the laser and the root of the hair follicle. The laser's energy will focus on and disable the follicle, which stops the hair from growing again. Usually, you will need to get a few treatments over a period of a month or more to get your ideal results. Your treatments are staggered to allow the treated areas a chance to heal. This also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to reach the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The revolutionary technology we use at Monarch Ideal Care is able to target the hair follicle alone to preserve the skin and other tissue in the treated area.

I have been seeing Dr. Leslee as a patient for a few months now. She’s great, she listens to my concerns with a professional, but relaxed approach. I will continue to refer patients to her because her bedside manner and knowledge set her apart.

Dr. McElrath has created a wonderful way of getting to know you as a person, not just a “patient”. She is eager to share with you a wealth of knowledge and guidance through individualized health coaching sessions; according to your personal needs. I loved working with her though this program because our sessions were not solely about “food” and “diet”. While nutrition is an important component in the topic of overall health and wellness, it is not the only focus throughout your time together. She has a strategic way of encouraging you to think outside the box, try new things, prioritize/create goals, and provides a professional outsider’s perspective on issues that she feels might be holding you back, emotionally, from becoming your best self. I specifically appreciated the user friendly patient portal and access to other wellness literature specific to my goals set for the next session. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is willing to make a commitment towards a healthier lifestyle and personal growth.
