The office is beautiful. Kim administered my Botox and lip filler. She did a great job!! I had no bruising which was a first for me. I really like this office and staff and will continue to get my Botox and filler needs here. I think the prices are reasonable as well. 10/20/23– I went back to see Kim again for a little more filler in my puppet lines. She does such a great job! I just love her. The whole office is great— very helpful. I confidently recommend this office to anyone looking for competent staff and reasonable prices. :)View on Google

The hair removal procedure will take place in our Reno, NV, plastic surgery office. It is quick and virtually painless.
"Patients will see results immediately following their laser hair removal treatment."
Protecting Your Skin From the Sun
Before TreatmentExposure to the sun tans the skin and lightens hair, both of which can have a negative impact on the results of your laser hair removal treatment. Before your treatment, Dr. James E. Murphy recommends avoiding sun exposure, wearing protective clothing, and using sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher.
After TreatmentAfter receiving your treatment, you should avoid sun exposure for about two weeks to allow your skin time to heal and to reduce the risk of developing skin concerns like hyperpigmentation.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
How long until I see results?
It will take several rounds of the laser treatment before most patients see the results they are hoping for. Each laser session will target your hair follicles at different stages of their growth. After a series of laser sessions, you will notice the follicles can no longer produce hair, or they will only produce very fine, thin hair.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Most people who are tired of unwanted hair are good candidates for laser hair removal. This laser procedure is safe for men and women of all colors. The procedure typically works best on those with darker hair. Laser hair removal cannot be performed on skin with wounds, rashes, or other concerns; these will first need to heal. The best way to know if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal is to set up a consultation at our Reno, NV, office.
Are there any side effects to laser hair removal?
It is normal to have some redness and swelling immediately following your treatment, but it should subside within a few hours. More adverse side effects like skin pigmentation changes, burns, blisters, and infections are very rare. A board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. James E. Murphy will know how to reduce the risk of these side effects by customizing your treatment.
Will my hair grow back? Do I need touch-up appointments?
Following your initial treatments, you may experience hair regrowth in a few months to a few years, though hairs are typically finer, thinner, slower-growing, and significantly more sparse. We recommend one to two touch-up sessions each year or as needed to maintain your results.
"Highly recommend!" Visit Us in Reno Today
Dr Murphy has wonderful bedside manor. He is able to present things honestly but in a way that doesn't feel judgmental. He actually declined to do a procedure on me because he felt it would not give good results. I appreciated his kindness and am very pleased with the results of my procedure.View on Google
I have been seeing Dr. Murphy for about 20 years. A rare find in the plastic surgery field, he will set proper expectations and not embellish what the ultimate outcome may be of any particular procedure. His staff is friendly and pricing is reasonable. Highly recommend!View On Google
