Unwanted hair is a problem for so many people, and removing it can cost a lot of money when you’re repeatedly buying razors or scheduling waxing appointments. With the help of laser hair removal at Charlottesville Plastic Surgery, you can finally stop shaving and achieve better, smoother results.

About Laser Hair Removal

At Charlotte Plastic Surgery, we use the Forever Young BBL laser system and the specialized Sciton non-ablative Joule laser system to target hair follicles and get rid of unwanted hair. The laser energy damages the hair follicle and causes the hair to eventually shed. For those looking for smooth, hairless skin and anyone wanting to finally throw out their razors and stop waxing, laser hair removal is a perfect solution.

  • Be in good overall health
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Want to remove unwanted hair from one or more areas of the body

Dr. Willis and his staff were amazing! Very calm, clean and professional atmosphere. They were inviting and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I went in for a consultation and had my lip filler procedure in the same day. Quick and painless. The results are perfect. I highly recommend Dr.Willis and taking advantage of the referral program. 10/10!

Dr.Willis and staff are incredible! They treat their patients with such high respect and make you feel right at home during your procedure. They are experienced and dedicated to making things right. You leave the office feeling really good about yourself and the work they’ve performed! I’ve had Fillers and Botox but would recommend anything!

Nothing but praise for Charlottesville Plastic Surgery. Dr. Willis explained everything he needed to do clearly and his work was top-notch. When needed he made an immediate referral for me and explained exactly what I would expect from that. Great communication, efficient office.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment

During your initial consultation, you should notify Dr. Willis of your medical history and the current medications you’re on. This is also the time to ask any questions you have. We want you to know as much about the procedure as possible.

Laser hair removal will begin with your provider cleaning the treatment area. They may apply a numbing cream as well to ensure you’re completely comfortable. From there, the Forever Young BBL laser will be passed over the skin and target each follicle. At most, you will feel a slight snapping sensation, but most patients tolerate it very well.

How long treatment lasts depends on the size of the area being treated and the number of areas treated. It could take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

Multiple treatment sessions are needed to ensure the hair is targeted at different growth cycles. The hair will then thin and eventually be eliminated altogether.


Because the Forever Young BBL laser is non-ablative, there is very little downtime. It won’t damage your skin at all. You may have some swelling or redness, but that will diminish within a few hours. Beyond that, you can return to your normal activities and your regular routine immediately. You will want to avoid makeup and strong skincare products and stay away from excess sun exposure for at least the first 48 hours. Make sure to also use sun protection like sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and protective clothing.
