Why consider laser treatment for pseudofolliculitis barbae?

If you’ve spent hundreds of dollars on expensive razors, shaving creams, lotions, oils, and powders, find out how laser treatments can help eradicate this painful condition and save you time and money.

“From start to finish I cannot overstate how pleased I was with my experience. Hair removal is a bit embarrassing for a young man, but the moment I stepped foot in the office I felt welcome and at ease!”

- Paul K.

Who makes the best candidate for treatment?

Sources say that pseudofolliculitis is caused by coiling of the hair, so some people are more prone to the condition than others, namely those of African or Middle Eastern descent. Those patients who want relief from the itching, burning problem of razor bumps are excellent candidates for laser treatment. The only way to tell for sure is to set up your private consultation with one of our practitioners in the Columbia, MD and Baltimore areas.

Is there any downtime?

Clients can expect some slight swelling and redness for the first few hours after their session. Ice packs or a Laser Enzyme Gel can be applied to help ease any discomfort. You may also receive creams and lotions from our team to help smooth and heal the skin. All that being said, you will be able to return to your normal routine right away after your appointment, as there is no extended downtime with laser hair removal.

What We're Doing About COVID-19

At Comprehensive Laser & Aesthetics, your health, safety and happiness are our top priorities. We have been monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation very carefully. We will be partially reopening the office beginning Monday, May 11th. We will continue to follow updates from local, state and federal authorities and if we receive different guidance we will respond appropriately and notify you immediately.

We have taken a series of precautionary steps to ensure your safety:

  1. We are performing enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of all patient care areas on a regular basis and in between all patient visits.
  2. We will avoid having patients congregate in our reception area. Upon check-in, you will be shown to either a private exam room or consultation room depending upon the nature of your appointment.
  3. All members of our staff are screened daily for COVID symptoms and are asked to stay home if they exhibit any signs or symptoms of the disease.
  4. We screen all patients entering our facility with COVID symptom screening questionnaires.
  5. ALL of our providers wear surgical face masks, plastic face shields and the necessary personal protective equipment to ensure patient and provider safety.
  6. We use hospital-grade disinfectants (Cavi-Wipes, Cavicide) to clean patient rooms and equipment. CaviCide is a convenient, ready-to-use, intermediate-level surface disinfectant that is effective against TB, HBV, HCV, viruses (hydrophilic and lipophilic), bacteria (including MRSA and VRE) and fungi. It can be used in the NICU, operating rooms, isolation rooms, patient care areas and laboratories. When used as directed, it will also effectively clean and decontaminate critical and semi-critical instrumentation.
  7. All of our equipment and protective eyewear are cleaned after every use.
  8. Plexiglass shields will be in place at the check-in and check out areas to prevent aerosol transmission.
  9. We offer "No touch" payment methods such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and online invoicing.

For the time being, we ask that you come to your appointments alone to limit the traffic through the office. We also ask that you leave children in the care of a family member or a sitter. If you have had a recent fever, sore throat, cold- or flu-like symptoms or contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19 please call immediately to reschedule your appointment.

As always we appreciate your support of and trust in our practice and we look forward to seeing you soon!
