Laser Hair Removal
Our advanced medical lasers and light systems provide the ultimate solution to the removal of unwanted hair for both men and women. This medical technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments and deliver longer lasting results.
The benefits of Laser and Light Hair Removal:
- They do not cause the irritation that other hair removal methods may cause.
- Larger areas may be treated at one time than with electrolysis, waxing or tweezing.
- They combine the speed of shaving with the lasting results promised by electrolysis.
- They are effective on almost any area of the body where smoother, younger, hair-free skin is desired.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area that you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair’s growth cycle.
Laser and light systems treat the hair follicles in the growth cycle at the time of treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Most patients like us to treat until the hair is gone.
After your treatment, the area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type after laser treatments. The use of sunscreens is recommended for 48 hours on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
NOTE: Some older lasers do not work equally well with light or dark hair and skin. If you have dark skin, you may want to have a patch test to see if your skin can tolerate the laser.
