Laser Hair Removal
Laser treatment for unwanted hair is a non-invasive approach to permanent reduction and long-term hair removal. Treatment is specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body, salfely eliminating hundreds of unwanted hair follicles instantly. Unlike many other treatment methods, Laser Therapy leaves your skin looking and feeling smoother and softer.
"I can't believe the time that I saved not having to pluck, tweeze, wax or deal with my unwanted hair. My skin always feels smooth." - C. Hogan
About Laser Hair Removal
What is treatment like?Preliminary setup requires cleansing and shaving of the area to be treated. The laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Without damaging the surrounding tissue, controlled pulses of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the hair follicles. The heat discourages and ultimately destroys the potential for regrowth. Post-treatment procedures include cleansing of the treated area and application of sunblock. Large areas such as backs, shoulders, abdomens and legs can be treated rapidly. Facial areas such as the lip, chin and beard can be treated in minutes.
Who are the candidates for treatment?Men, women and children have been successfully treated. Treatments are customized according to hair color, texture and location on the body. Nearly all hair colors - black, brown and red - can be treated. The administration is effective on all skin types, including dark skinned individuals of all ethnic origins. Ask to schedule a consultation to determine candidacy.
Is Treatment Painful?The procedure is tolerated well by most patients, as the laser functions so quickly that only a mild sting is felt. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required, but topical anesthetic is an option for more sensitive areas.
Are there any possible side effects?Side effects are rare. Blistering, soft scabbing or redness sometimes occurs at the treatment site, but disappears quickly or within a few days. In certain cases, the skin could become slightly lighter or darker. You will be notified during your consult if you are susceptible to these side effects. You must limit your sun exposure for 2 to 4 weeks before and after treatment. This will greatly minimize the risk of complications.
