We know that the last thing on your mind is laser hair removal, but now is actually the ideal time to start prepping your skin for the sultry days of summer. Before you book your laser hair removal appointment, we want to offer a word of caution: Be selective!
In case you missed the news last year, numerous Virginians suffered burns and blisters after undergoing laser hair removal treatments performed by inadequately trained spa employees. Virginia’s state legislature then passed a bill requiring that laser hair removal be performed by a doctor, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or a properly trained person working under the supervision of a licensed doctor, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner.
Rest assured, Chesapeake Vein Center and MedSpa has always offered the highest quality of laser hair removal treatments performed by licensed, fully trained healthcare professionals. In fact, we offer the highest standard of care for every treatment at our medspa. The key to our superior level of service is Dr. Surya Challa, our board-certified medical director. Unlike other medspa directors who “oversee” medical spa treatments from afar, Dr. Challa works at Chesapeake Vein Center and MedSpa, administering treatments and overseeing patients daily. When Dr. Challa isn’t performing a treatment, his highly trained and fully licensed staff is there to meet your needs.
In addition to your safety, you also need to be strategic about your timing. Because hair grows in stages, you’ll need to schedule a number of treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart to target as many hair follicles as possible. This means if you start your treatments now, you’ll have plenty of time to achieve the smooth, care-free skin of your dreams for the summer.
