"I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Kouris and his team! From the moment I spoke with Suzy the receptionist to book my appointment, to consulting with Nurse Sheila and Dr. George about procedure options, I felt comfortable and confident about my decision to move forward with Dr. Kouris. Dr. Kouris took his time and answered all of my questions and concerns. Dr. Kouris is a highly skilled, dedicated and caring physician who strives to do exceptional work in a safe manner. I very much appreciate Dr. Kouris!"- C. / Healthgrades / Jan 13, 2020
"I will start by mentioning that Dr. Kouris is an excellent doctor all-around. He is compassionate, very knowledgeable, extremely polite, and has a wonderful team - Sheila and Suzy are the best!I have known Dr. Kouris since 2017. I had 3 procedures - Breast reduction, Tummy Tuck and brow lift. I am 54 years old looking like i am in my 40s. I love all 3 of my procedures but my brow lift is incredibly natural. No one realizes what I had done. I am receiving compliments about how young I look. Ultimately, I believe the doctor that makes you look younger and feel extremely confident in your own skin has a magic touch! I highly recommend him to anyone who is in the search of doing any plastic surgery. Give Dr. Kouris a shot, you will not be disappointed."- M.K. / Google / Dec 27, 2019

"I recently had some elective surgery with Dr Kouris. He listened very carefully to my hopes and concerns, and we came up with a plan. I could not be more pleased with the results. I felt like I was in very capable hands with Dr Kouris, his nurse Sheila, and the whole office staff from start to finish. I will definitely recommend Dr Kouris to anyone searching for a qualified plastic surgeon."- M.S. / Google / Dec 20, 2019
"UPDATE: The clinic called me back and asked if I could come in for complementary Botox to make up for the previous problems. The appointment went well. I met with Dr. Kouris and let him know that he didn't have to completely comp the Botox but he insisted and profusely apologized. He is a nice man and he truly care about his patients and their time. Kudos to him for making things right:) I’ll start with saying that I hardly ever write a poor review. However, I am very disappointed with this clinic. I made an appointment over a month ago for the 12th of December and let the receptionist know that I would be coming in during my lunch break. She assured me that they would be able to see me in a timely manner. I was supposed to be receiving a consult for skincare as well as Botox. Eight days before my appointment, I was contacted by Dr. Kouris’ receptionist reminding me of my appointment on the 5th. I let her know that she was mistaken that my appointment was made for the 12th as my husband was out of town during the 5th and I would not have made an appointment for that day. She apologized and updated her schedule for the 12th. On the 9th I was once again contacted by the receptionist letting me know that the individual who would be assisting with the skincare consult would be out of the country on the 12th and would not be able to see me during my appointment and let me know that I would need to make another appointment to see her. I was a bit bothered by this given this was the second “mishap” with scheduling but she let me know that she would have the person give me a call the following day so I could at least speak with her. I thought it was a nice gesture, so I agreed. I was able speak with the individual but as expected, she ultimately said she would need to see me to make any definite suggestions. Well, today I showed up for my appointment at 12:00 and was given paperwork to complete. I let the receptionist know, once again, that I was on my lunch break and needed to be sure they were aware that I didn’t have much time. She let me know that she would remind the clinic team and not to worry, they would get me back in time. Well, 45 minutes later, I was still waiting to see someone from the clinic staff. I had to leave before seeing anyone. The receptionist said “Sorry, we had another patient JUST stall everything”. I told her that I was more bothered by the fact that nothing had been communicated to me than the fact that they were running behind. I was also bothered by the receptionist lack of concern that I had to leave before being seen. I would expect more than a simple “sorry”. The explanation was only given after I prompted for more information. A clinic that allows the receptionist to be the face of the organization should strive for a more sympathetic, organized, communicative, individual."- E.Z. / Google / Dec 20, 2019
Laser Hair Removal Ideal Candidates
Diolaze laser hair removal is a safe procedure that is effective for many individuals. During your initial consultation, we will go over your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal techniques (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have dark hair and light skin
- Are in good overall health
Laser Hair Removal Procedure Technique
On the day of your appointment, you will be asked to lie in a private treatment room as areas of your face and body being treated are cleaned to eliminate oil, dirt, and lotions. During the procedure, a team member will slightly stretch the area to create a clear pathway between the InMode laser and the hair follicle root. The Diolaze laser beam will focus on and kill the follicle, preventing the hair from growing again. On average, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to achieve your best results. Your treatments are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to cycle into the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The specialized Diolaze laser hair removing technology we use at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery targets only the hair follicle, preserving the skin and other tissue in the treatment area.
What to Expect with Laser Hair Removal
Although laser hair removal is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a slight sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid exercise or sun exposure for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following your session, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to alleviate any mild discomfort.
Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions
No doubt, you’ve waxed, you’ve shaved, you’ve bleached, or you’ve used depilatories. But Diolaze goes to the root of the problem, quite literally. Old-fashioned techniques did nothing to retard hair growth, which meant you had to keep using them for forever. But with Diolaze, you'll need a few sessions for permanent hair removal.
How effective is Diolaze laser hair removal?
Diolaze is the new champion of hair removal lasers. As a cutting-edge removal technique, it is safe and gentle while eliminating offending hair. Diolaze is engineered to cover one of the largest treatment areas, making sessions efficient and faster. The unique cooling system allows for almost painless sessions. With superior effectiveness, comfort, and speed, Diolaze leads the pack in laser hair removal.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
All laser hair removal techniques require a succession of treatments. This is because laser treatment is most effective on hair follicles when they’re in the mature phase of growth. Hair is in a variety of growth stages at any given time, but the Diolaze device has one of the largest treatment areas in the industry. That means more mature follicles are affected during each session. The best results occur after approximately six treatments. Keep in mind, the number of treatments could vary, according to your hair color, type, and the size of the area being treated.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The Diolaze instrument has a built-in cooling surface, making the treatments more comfortable than any other device. The majority of our patients tell us Diolaze is almost pain-free, regardless of the body area, including facial hair growth, torso hair, leg, or bikini.
