Laser Hair Removal
How does it work?
To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the melanin in the hair follicle. The energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that hair can never grow there again.
Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair can be applied to any area of the body. We offer the most advanced technology available in laser hair removal and are able to treat all skin types.
What to expect during treatment?
The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Patients describe the sensation as a light pinch. Slight redness or localized swelling may occur but will usually subside within the first 24 hours. The length of the treatment session will vary based on the area of the body being treated.
How many treatments are required?
We recommend patients have 6 treatment sessions in order to achieve optimal results. The reason for multiple treatments is that treatments are performed during our growth cycles and not all of our hair follicles are in the growth phase at the same time. Some of our follicles may lie dormant for years but will then start to grow hair again. Hair on the face is usually treated every 4 weeks. Hair on the body can be anywhere from 8-12 weeks depending on your growth cycle. Some patients have experienced up to 50% reduction in hair growth after their first session.
