WHAT IS Laser Hair Removal?
Hair removal utilizing advanced laser technology is quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in America. This technique is an effective method for the long-term reduction or removal of hair throughout the face and body. Laser hair removal frequently leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and produces wonderful, lasting results when compared to other common hair removal options (such as shaving or waxing). Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino performs safe and effective laser hair removal treatments for both men and women in a number of areas, including the legs, arms, back, face, chest, armpits, and bikini area.
At Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we utilize innovative technology to help women and men achieve their goals. For laser hair removal, our Doylestown, PA office uses the Cynosure Icon laser for effective hair removal.

"Highly recommend Dr. Tamburrino and Susan. I have received dysport and laser hair removal with incredible results. I couldn’t be more happy with either of these treatments! And to top it all off, they have the best office staff compared to any physician’s office I have ever been to. They are all real, genuine people who care about you. They treat you like family and you know you are in the very best of hands. Thank you to Dr. Tamburrino, Anna, Susan, and the entire front desk staff for everything! You guys are the best!"- H.S. / Google / Nov 19, 2022
"I’ve been getting Dysport on and off for over 10 years. Dr. Tamburrino had been doing my injectables consistently for 5 years. He treats my wrinkles and neckbands with Dysport. He has kept me youthful and very natural looking by replacing lost volume (fat loss from aging) with filler in my face. It took a lot of trust in my doctor for me to get filler in my face. I am so thankful for his knowledge and skills. I would only go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like him for my filler and Dysport! He takes his time to explain everything in detail which makes you feel comfortable and ready for treatment. I recommend JoeTMD to all my family and friends. Everyone is extremely happy with their results! I also see Susan for my skin care. Susan is the best Medical Aesthetician! I’ve been seeing her for almost 2 years. She has changed my skin for the best! With her advanced treatments like Dermaplanes, laser hair removal, Hydrafacial, Vi-Peels, and great medical grade skin care products that work, my skin feels 10 years younger. Overall with injectables and skincare Tamburrino Plastic Surgery and Med Spa can be your one stop shop for youthful skin!"- A.M. / Google / Nov 30, 2022

"I had several consultations with different doctors on a double mastopexi in addition to a reduction on one side. Like many moms, breast feeding made me very uneven and I wanted to do something for me. After meeting with Dr. Tamburrino and his lovely wife Anna, both my husband and I knew this was the team we wanted to perform my surgery and support me before, during and after. Andrea was absolutely amazing, taking all of my calls, guiding me with payment info, and keeping me up to date on scheduling and everything I needed leading up to surgery day. Dr. Tamburrino was not only informative and educational but made me feel at ease during the entire process. In addition he also made sure my husband was comfortable with everything we discussed. Anna was so kind and checked in on me several times the day of surgery and for weeks after. She gave me her personal cell so I could reach her for literally any questions. I can't tell you how much I appreciated this team of amazing, real people who truly care about your desired outcome, your overall health and recovery and their genuine excitement when they see you come in and out of the office. After about 6 months of healing I went back for my checkup and met the Fabulous Susan. We did some minor scar touch ups, which actually gave me feeling back on the side that was taking longer to come back. It was meeting her, that I have fallen in love with Lazer hair removal. From the neck down she has been helping me to achieve all of my hair removal needs. As you can tell, I love this office and I don't mind the 40 min drive to experience their top notch service. Highly recommend!"- J.K. / Google / Feb 08, 2023
who getS laser hair removal?
Hair removal with a laser is a gentle process that is effective for many individuals. At your consultation, you will talk about your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments are those who:
- Have unwanted hair on their face or body
- Are tired of other hair removal techniques (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in overall, good physical health
HOW DOES HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
On the day of your appointment, you will be asked to relax in a private treatment room as the necessary areas of your skin are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and creams. During laser hair removal, a team member will lightly stretch the skin to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The laser's energy will focus on and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents it from growing again.
On average, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your best results. Your treatments will be spaced out in order to give the treated areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to cycle into the active growth phase so as many follicles as possible are targeted and destroyed. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa addresses each hair follicle on its own, preserving the skin and other tissue in the treated area.
What to Expect
While laser hair removal is mostly gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a light sunburn for a period of time following your treatment. After your session, you will be free to resume all of your normal activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or extended time outdoors for at least 24 hours to let the treated areas recover. When you get home following your appointment, we suggest patients to use soothing creams or ice packs to treat any discomfort.
Laser hair removal FAQs
What kind of skin can laser hair removal treat?
Men and women with light skin and dark hair are ideal candidates for laser hair removal. This is because it's easier for the laser to "find" and treat the follicles. That being said, people with all kinds of skin tones and hair colors can be considered for treatment. Simply ask our team during your appointment.
What is downtime like after laser hair removal?
The good news is there's no downtime after laser hair removal! You can resume your routine as normal. However, your skin may feel sensitive and red, which is why we ask patients to avoid sun exposure on the treated skin. Our staff can provide ways to ease any discomfort at home.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal does produce long-lasting results, but they are not permanent. Treatment is considered semi-permanent because some follicles may continue growing. No matter what, our patients find that most hair will be gone once their treatment plan is finished. We can also schedule additional laser sessions as needed.
