Laser Hair Removal

  One of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the United States,
  laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to reduce unwanted hair
  growth on nearly any part of the body.

  Numerous laser treatments are available to remove hair. During your
  consultation, we will determine the best treatment program for you
  based on your skin color, hair color, and the treatment area.

How it works

  Laser hair removal uses an intense, pulsating beam of light to
  penetrate the skin and target the hair follicle. The laser damages the
  follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. Laser hair removal is most
  effective in people with light skin and dark hair, as the laser
  targets the pigment in the hair follicle.

  Laser hair removal can treat unwanted hair in nearly any area. Some of
  the most common treatment areas include:
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Bikini area
  • Back

Treatment

  During the procedure, your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to
  minimize any discomfort. Cooling fans may also be used to counter the
  heat from the laser. Your doctor will pass the handheld laser device
  over your skin. You may feel a slight stinging sensation. Small areas,
  such as the upper lip, may require only a few minutes. Larger areas,
  such as the back, may take up to several hours.

Results

  Several treatments may be necessary to see a significant reduction in
  hair growth. The length of time between each treatment will depend on
  the growth rate of your hair. Treatments for body hair removal are
  typically performed in six to ten-week intervals, while facial hair
  removal treatments may be performed every four to six weeks. Periodic
  maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain results.
