The Dermatology Center of Williamsburg offers laser hair removal using the top of the line LightSheer™ laser technology. Dr. Corvette and her staff skillfully perform all laser hair removal procedures. The process is extremely safe and achieves at least 80% hair reduction of pigmented (brown or black) hair.
We use the LightSheer™ diode laser that is designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort, and more reliably than other methods of hair removal including electrolysis. The small laser energy affects the hair follicle, which reduces and/or eliminates hair growth.
The LightSheer™ laser treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously and uses a special contact cooling hand piece that protects and cools the upper layer of skin before, during and after each laser pulse.
Our treatment programs are tailored to each individual’s needs.
- Full face

What to expect?
The length of a laser treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending upon the size of the area treated.
The laser treatment may cause slight discomfort; however, most patients tolerate the procedure comfortably.
The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient. Side effects, if any, may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle. Most people return to their normal activities, without experiencing any down time.
How often are treatments needed?
It is important to realize that the actively growing hairs (anagen) are most affected by the laser. As all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, more than one treatment will be necessary to achieve the best results. Six to nine treatments at intervals of 6-12 weeks are recommended depending on the body area being treated.
