Laser Hair Removal

New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

Unwanted hair on a woman's body can be a nightmare for her. Getting rid of it can be painful through the use of hair-removal creams, sharp razors, hot wax or painful electrolysis needles. Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits uses advanced medical lasers and light systems to provide an alternative for hair removal for women.

Lasers and light systems kill unwanted hair by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle which disables the hair from further growth. This procedure uses low-energy settings to gently disable unwanted hair, which will put an end to routine shaving or waxing and will leave your skin feeling more smooth and silkier.

Laser Hair Removal Vs. Electrolysis

Electrolysis is a much slower process. Electrolysis uses a needle that is inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time. Once inserted, an electric shock burns the follicle to retard hair growth. Laser and light systems use cool light to scan the treatment area, and within minutes all of the hairs in the laser beam are treated. Most patients who have had both say that treatment with lasers are less painful, faster and more convenient.

Benefits of laser hair removal

  • Does not cause irritation
  • Larger areas can be treated at one time
  • Combines the speed of shaving with the lasting results promised by electrolysis
  • Effective on any area of the body where smoother, younger, hair-free skin is desired


Laser hair removal is a gentle process that usually requires 2 to 3 treatments that are spaced 8 to 12 weeks apart; however, treatment spacing depends on the fact that hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair's location, thickness and resilience.

After treatment, you can return to normal activities immediately. In some cases a specially formulated skin care product is prescribed after treatment.

Dr. Lefkovits offers the latest, most effective and safest equipment.
