Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a procedure now available at our practice. With laser hair removal, we can eliminate unwanted hair from virtually every area of the body, including the face, back, bikini line, and underarms. Even large areas of hair can be treated in just minutes. Patients finally have an alternative to the painful and time-consuming non-permanent treatments of the past
During removal, light from a high-energy laser is directed towards the skin, disabling all hair follicles in the active growth phase. Several weeks after the first treatment, the treated hair will begin to fall out on its own. At this time, patients may notice new hair growth from other areas. This new growth will have to be removed in one of several follow-up sessions at our practice.
Because it is fast, effective, and permanent, it is quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic skin care treatments available. Anyone who is bothered by unsightly hair growth is potentially a candidate for removal at our practice. The procedure is most effective on light-skinned patients with dark hair follicles; however, new technology allows us to treat patients of most skin tones. Individuals with a dark tan should be aware that treatments sometimes produce slight discolorations on the skin. For this reason, we recommend that our patients avoid tanning prior to all sessions.
