What are Laser Hair Removal Before and After Pictures?
Laser hair removal ‘before and after’ images refer to a set of pictures of a previous patient who has undergone this treatment successfully. The set comprises pictures taken before the procedure and after the procedure. Sometimes the pictures may be taken at various stages after the procedure to show the results after every individual treatment session.
The dermatology expert will take the pictures with the patient’s express consent. The goal is to educate new patients about what the laser hair removal procedure can or cannot do for them. Dr. Zimmet believes that before and after pictures should be used by dermatologists during the initial consultation as a visual tool to explain the treatment effectively to new patients. He tries to provide these pictures for various dermatology procedures, including laser hair removal.
A lot of patients do not have a very clear idea in the beginning about how laser hair removal can help them achieve their skin care goals. They may be confused between two or more treatment options, or a combination of treatments to achieve the most effective outcomes. In such situations, laser hair removal before and after photos can come in very handy. The dermatology expert can use them during the initial consultation.
Decisions such as the choice of the treatable areas, the amount of area to be treated and the number of treatment sessions that may be necessary can be taken more appropriately when the dermatologist makes use of laser hair removal before and after pictures.
In cosmetic treatments such as laser hair removal, it is important that the patient should have a positive outlook, clear aesthetic goals and realistic expectations. Patients with these attributes usually achieve higher levels of satisfaction from the treatment. Laser hair removal ‘before and after’ photos can help a patient to form realistic expectations.
If the patient has misplaced notions about the expected outcome, it can result in disappointment for the patient in the end. Even when the procedure may have been performed very successfully, but the patient may continue to remain dissatisfied because of wrong expectations.
The doctor may choose to put up the laser hair treatment before and after photographs on their practice website. New patients can simply access these photos freely from the website, and review them in the privacy and comfort of their home or office. This may help them make up their mind about whether to visit the doctor’s office for a consultation regarding laser hair removal.
Individual results may vary.
