In cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, there are a number of procedures and treatments which practitioners like Dr. Roger J. Oldham can offer patients. Dr. Oldham is a board certified plastic surgeon with experience and expertise performing breast augmentation, liposuction, facelift, and skin enhancement treatments like microdermabrasion, chemical peel, injectable fillers like Juvederm, and laser hair removal. In recent years, each of these minimally-invasive treatments, especially laser hair removal, has grown increasingly popular in American among women and men alike.
Laser hair removal is a very recent advance in cosmetic skin enhancement treatment that offers patients the liberation from a life of razors—and more specifically, cuts and razor burn. Razor burn is a condition associated with two factors related to shaving: the cleanliness of the razor and the abrasive nature of the razor as it cuts the hair. Perhaps touted more than anything else is the immediate benefit of laser hair removal that reduces the need for regular shaving routines. But, aside from this time- and money-saving convenience, consider the hygienic benefits as well. Razors can carry bacteria and we often don’t change the blades as frequently as we should, probably because rising costs of razor blades. But, like a toothbrush that has been overused, razors not only collect bacteria but spread that bacteria with each use. Consider laser hair removal because of each of these important benefits.
