While healthy, thick hair in the right places is an attractive feature, unwanted hair is a cosmetic problem. Constant waxing, tweezing, electrolysis, shaving or use of depilatories are the traditional ways to get rid of hair in the bikini area, underarms, back, shoulders, legs and face.
Dr. Fechner offers some of the best results in laser hair removal Worcester has to offer. In order to deliver the hair removal with the best efficacy and comfort for you, Dr. Fechner has chosen the most advanced laser hair removal system, the Lumenis LightSheer DUET laser. We selected our laser system for its impressive efficiency, speed, and patient comfort in removing excess hair from the body. Dr. Fechner’s staff is highly-trained, and dedicated to providing the level of service and results for which he is known.
We offer the latest generation of laser hair removal systems which provides many benefits.
Many people are genetically programmed to produce hair in all the wrong places. With our laser hair removal in Worcestor, unwanted hair can be efficiently and effectively reduced. While the body is covered with fine, light-colored hair, the darker, coarser hairs are the problem.
The system uses a state-of-the-art laser in conjunction with vacuum-assist technology in the removal of unsightly hair – and is far faster and more comfortable than earlier generation laser hair removal systems.
Our laser hair removal in Worcester involves the use of concentrated light, which is absorbed by the darker pigment in the hair follicles beneath the skin. With our system, a larger beam is emitted for more rapid treatment. Hair growth is impeded by damaging the hair follicle with light energy. The larger beam produced by this system allows us to treat a larger quantity of follicles in one session. Even with this highly advanced system, most patients should plan on several treatments.
This system effectively removes unwanted hair in the following body areas:
Tired of seeing the growth of unsightly hair on your body? Are you interested in a long-term solution? You can achieve a significant reduction in hair growth with our state-of-the-art laser hair removal system, giving you the best results in laser hair removal Worcester has to offer. This system reduces the time of a session by fifty percent or more when compared with older methods. As an example, rather than spending an hour to remove hair from your back, you can expect the treatment to be complete in about 15 minutes.
Patients need to have some patience; it takes a few weeks for the follicles to die off and the hair growth to diminish. Common side effects include slight redness, swelling, and irritation after treatment. These symptoms last for a few hours for most, or a few days for some patients. If you experience any discomfort, an ice pack usually offers sufficient relief. It is helpful to exfoliate your skin to help release the trapped dead hairs from your skin. A body scrub is effective. Use a high-quality moisturizer to further stimulate the shedding of hair.
The laser works best on hairs in the active growth phase – and not all the hairs in the targeted area are in this phase.
As the hair enters this phase, your next treatment should be scheduled. With several treatments, a large amount of the unwanted hair can be removed.

On behalf of the entire team at Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we would like to take a moment to say thank you again for your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced, and we're working hard to evolve so that we can continue to provide you with the patient experience you have come to expect from our practice.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility. Our surgical center and medical spa remain committed to providing the best patient care, and we are actively working to take all necessary precautions as we plan to safely re-open our practice. Please help us continue to protect the health and well-being of our patients and workplace by cooperating with all of our precautionary measures and protocols against COVID-19 at your next appointment, or as you plan for your surgery.
As a fully accredited surgical facility, Fechner MD has always observed the highest level of safety and sanitation. In fact, as a surgeon, Dr. Fechner is an expert in infection control. We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible for our patients to safely return for surgical and medical spa treatments alike.
The upgraded work flow and safety protocols we have implemented at Fechner MD far exceed those being recommended by any government agency.
Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
We thank you in advance for your patience throughout this time, and we look forward to seeing you here again as we begin to resume business operations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa at (508) 754-4000 and our team will gladly assist you. Thank you!
