Home Laser Hair Removal

As a plastic surgeon in Fort Myers, I often see ads in spa journals or even the Wall Street Journal for the use of home lasers for hair removal.  

Like so many things we are asked to buy, they’re duds.  This may not be.

A new study recently reviewed a home use diode Laser for hair removal and found it to be effective after an average of 8 treatments.  The study was done by Dr. Ron Wheeland from the University of Missouri (oh! A new member of the SEC) 

Hair removal was complete for 31% of patients. There was mild redness and some swelling associated with the treatments. 

Dr Wheeland has some financial ties to the company TRIA beauty! Check it out
