"I am so happy that I chose to go with Dr. Lyle - Dr. Lyle did my mommy makeover Back in April. I am so happy that I chose to go with Dr. Lyle because he was very attentive to what I was wanting and accomplished everything perfectly. Any questions or concerns that I had he was quick to answer them. Dr. Lyle has a great bedside manner and made me feel comfortable the entire journey.

Laser hair removal is a gentle process that is suitable for most patients. In your consultation, you will talk about your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal methods (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in overall, good health
At your laser hair removal appointment, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as your skin is cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During laser hair removal, a team member will stretch out the skin being treated to provide a direct path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser's energy will target and disable the hair follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant growth phase to reach the active growth phase so they can be treated. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center is able to target the hair follicle alone to preserve the skin around the areas being treated.
What to Expect
While the treatment is relatively gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may feel like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after an appointment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or the use of ice packs to treat any discomfort.
