Laser Hair RemovalSay goodbye to unsightly and unwanted hair with laser hair removal therapy.

There are many men and women who are dealing with embarrassing hair on either the face or the body that they want to get rid of. Even very fine, fuzzy hair can be enough to make someone feel self-conscious. If you want to get smoother skin without having to turn to shaving or waxing to get results, then our Wilmington, DE, dermatologist, Dr. Michael Saruk, can give you the results you want through laser hair removal.


How does laser hair removal work?

While this high-energy laser can be used to treat a variety of skin issues such as age spots, vascular lesions, and even blue veins, it can also eliminate unwanted hair. This laser works by safely penetrating the skin’s surface to heat up and destroy the hair follicles under the skin so they can’t regrow.

The GentleLase® system that our Wilmington, DE, cosmetic dermatologist uses has a built-in cooling system, which means that we can treat practically any area of the body safely with minimal side effects and no burning.


What areas can I treat with laser hair removal?

Just about any area of the body can be treated with laser hair removal including,

  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Groin
  • Underarms
  • Chin
  • Face
  • Shoulders
  • Chest


How many laser sessions will I need?

Since hair growth is cyclical, this means that it will require multiple sessions in order to see permanent hair reduction. The number of sessions required will depend on how much hair you have and the size of the area we are treating. Most patients will require anywhere from 4-8 sessions.


Does it hurt?

This laser treatment is non-invasive, so you won’t need numbing gel or topical anesthesia prior to treatment. Many patients describe the pulse of the laser as feeling like a rubber band snapping against the skin. It may sting and cause some minor discomfort, but it will go away quickly and be soothed with the GentleLase’s built-in cooling system.

Dermatologists help people maintain good skin health, but at Delaware Valley Dermatology Group in Wilmington, DE, Dr.Hair Removal, Botox, Dermal Fillers Michael Saruk and staff also help people achieve their best look! Below are a few of the cosmetic procedures that our patients use to keep their skin not only healthy but beautiful as well.

Hair removal

Shaving to remove unwanted body hair is time-consuming, inaccurate and temporary, not to mention all the various nicks and cuts that inevitably go along with it. With laser hair removal from your Wilmington dermatologist, the distracting hairs that grow under your arms, on your legs, on your stomach or anywhere else can be removed permanently. Using a specialized laser that targets the hair while leaving the surrounding skin untouched, we can make smooth, clear skin a reality!


Wrinkles are formed by repeated muscle movement after many years. Since the muscles around the eyes and between the forehead are constantly used when smiling, frowning, talking and squinting, deep, noticeable wrinkles can form in these areas. To combat these unwanted signs of aging, your Wilmington cosmetic dermatologist can inject Botox from a tiny, precise needle to these muscles, causing them to stop moving for a few months, allowing your skin to smooth out and leave a much more refreshed and youthful appearance behind.

Dermal fillers

Like Botox, dermal fillers are an injectable, minimally-invasive way to rejuvenate your facial features. However, fillers from your cosmetic dermatologist in Wilmington are used for different purposes in different areas of the face. When the skin ages and the fat beneath it starts to dissipate, it can leave you with unwanted contours, lines and hollow spaces. Fillers "plump" these areas up - most often the lips, lower eyelids, and lines that form between the corners of the nose and mouth - to give you a firmer and more youthful appearance.
