What is Laser Hair Removal?
One of the most commonly performed cosmetic treatments in the United States, laser hair removal is the most permanent method of getting rid of unwanted body hair. Our advanced laser technology emits light pulses directly into the skin, which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles.
After the light energy is absorbed, it destroys the hair and disables hair follicles that are in the active growing phase. With repeated treatment, patients often report significantly less or no future regrowth in treated areas.
What Areas Does Laser Hair Removal Treat?
Laser hair removal can effectively remove unwanted hair from multiple areas on the body, including:
- Bikini Line
For men, the back, chest, arms, and legs are popular places to either have hair completely removed or thinned out.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is not only painless and fast, it has several other benefits such as:
- Our sophisticated laser technology can target dark, coarse hairs while leaving healthy skin undamaged
- Laser hair removal treats unwanted body hair at the source, penetrating the skin and disabling hair follicles better than any alternative treatment.
- This treatment is precise and controlled, delivering predictable and consistent results.
- Unlike other hair removal treatments, our lasers are safe for every skin type.
- During treatment, several hairs can be treated at one time for added efficiency
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
During your consultation with our medical team, your health and medical history will be evaluated. If no contraindicating skin issues are found, a customized treatment plan will be created for you to maximize your results.
Although this treatment typically works better for individuals with lighter skin and dark hair, treatments will be tailored to your individual skin specifications.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Slight flushing or redness is common after laser hair removal and should subside within a few days. Other possible complications or side effects will be discussed with you prior to treatment.
How Long Will Results Last?
Laser hair removal treatments will be repeated until regrowth is prevented. Individuals should adopt a good skincare regimen and take proper precautions in the sun to add longevity to results.
