Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Leg Laser Hair Removal

People have been removing hair from their bodies for more than ten thousand years. Their reasons have ranged from a treatment for lice to an indicator of civility and marital status. For the sake of beauty, we’ve removed hair from just our foreheads or upper lips, while others find a lack of hair over the entire body most attractive. Athletes have long found it useful to remove hair from areas in anticipation of injuries, as well as to lessen “drag,” while various religions use hair removal in their rites and ceremonies. No matter the reason for removing hair, there are a wide variety of methods used to achieve the desired results.

Temporary Solutions

Over the centuries, people have developed an assortment of methods to rid themselves of hair, some that last just a few days to a few weeks:

  • Shaving
  • Tweezing
  • Sugaring and Waxing
  • Bande Abru – aka Threading
  • Hair Removal Creams

Permanent Hair Removal

If you’re considering a more permanent solution to unwanted hair, laser removal or electrolysis are the two primary options. In deciding which course will be best for your needs, it’s helpful to know that each hair on our body has a cycle of growth, broken into three phases: growth, transitional and resting. Another important aspect to consider is the total area and density of the hair you wish to remove. Both procedures require special equipment and expertise and therefore may not be done at home.

Electrolysis uses a filament is inserted into each follicle which is then zapped to prevent further growth. The process can be time consuming because each hair must be treated, one at a time. It does generally produce excellent results and may be used on most any skin and hair types, but may be quite painful and require many sessions, depending on the hair density and area to be treated.

Laser hair pemoval uses a bright light to target the melanin in hair to destroy them in the growth phase. People with lightly colored skin and dark hair or darker skin with coarse hair tend to have the best results, but it does require several brief sessions to halt the production of hair as desired. If the hair is dense in the area to be treated, it’s recommended that you start with laser removal, such as INMODE Optimas DiolazeXL, to reduce the volume of hair before considering electrolysis. Our team at Creative Facial Aesthetics is trained to offer relatively painless, convenient hair removal in our Midtown Manhattan spa. Contact us to schedule your hair removal consultation.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

Robin M.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
