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 set the standard all Doctors should strive in patient care. Bedside manner and benevolence in her astute care of myself and wife has been above the board. Patience and LISTENING are the first I recognized in her presence. Extremely knowledgeable in down to earth way. And she handled me being silly quite excellently. 🙃 Dr McElrath we are so grateful.

I will definitely be returning, I had a pleasant experience staff are friendly and informative, the hormones really gave me the boost that I needed, I would like to see more advertisements about hormone replacement therapy so that woman can start having conversations about hormones and age related changes without feeling embarrassed.

I love this practice! As an introvert, I appreciate the small office setting without a waiting room filled with other patients; it makes going to the doctor feel more personal because there aren't a bunch of people waiting ahead of you and the doctor isn't stressed out because of being behind on appointments or anything like that. Dr. McElrath is a great doctor and genuinely seems to care about her patients' needs and wellbeings; she's also very laidback, and it's really easy to talk to her about things. She always has great recommendations for products that can improve your health (like vitamins/supplements, foods, and even safer cleaning products) --- she is NOT the kind of doctor who will just push all sorts of medication onto you, which is greatly appreciated. Scheduling is super easy, as it is all online. You can schedule up to 3 weeks out, I believe. This practice does offer times later in the evening for those who work during the day, but available times depend on whether you are a subscription patient or a Medicaid patient. Online, you can also access your patient portal and update certain parts of your profile to keep your doctor in-the-know about your general wellbeing outside of appointments. You can view lab results, documents, questionnaires, and all kinds of other helpful info. It's pretty neat! I am 100% supportive of this doctor's office and truly believe in its ability to help and benefit its patients. If you hate crowded waiting rooms and want a more personalized experience and a doctor who cares (and incorporates online technology into their practice), this is the place for you!
