Barry Bass, M.D., and his assistant, Jill Avalos, now offer laser hair removal in Dr. Bass’ office at Huguley Memorial Medical Center. Dr. Bass has purchased a laser hair removal system manufactured by Candela Corporation, the market leader in medical and aesthetic laser technology.
“Our clients love the freedom from shaving, waxing or plucking,” explained Jill Avalos. “With laser hair removal, men and women eliminate that unwanted hair quickly and easily.”
Generally, a patient undergoes three to nine sessions to remove all unwanted hair, and then an annual session ensures that no hair returns in that area. A session lasts from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treated area.
The procedure is safe, effective, and virtually painless. After donning protective sunglasses, the patient feels a cool spray first. Then, a targeted laser penetrates the skin tissue and delivers a precise amount of therapeutic heat to the hair follicles. Some patients feel a quick discomfort similar to a rubber band popping on the skin. Any side effects are usually minimal.
Dr. Bass has 29 years of medical experience and is board certified by the American College of Surgeons. In addition to general surgery, he also removes varicose veins.
The cost for laser hair removal begins at $99 per session. Credit plans are available. Dr. Bass’ office is located in Suite 104 of the medical office buildings at Huguley Memorial Medical Center. To learn more or schedule an appointment, call 817-293-9200.
