Shaving, bleaching, plucking, waxing, or trimming unwanted or excessive hair on your face or body may grow tiresome over time and may irritate your skin. That’s why we have been offering safe and effective laser hair reduction treatment for men and women since 1999.
How laser hair removal works
One of the most popular laser treatments, hair reduction and removal allows you to put away the creams, razors, and tweezers for good. Light energy targets the pigments in each hair. As the light is absorbed, it creates heat energy, which eliminates the hair follicle and stops hair growth.
To prepare for the procedure, patients are asked to refrain from waxing or plucking hairs so that the hair is present in the follicle. Shaving immediately before the treatment maximizes the effectiveness of the laser, allowing the laser energy to penetrate into the follicle to heat and destroy it.
Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair reduction works best on patients who wish to remove darker hairs. Because the laser focuses on pigmentation, grey, blonde, or white hairs are not responsive to treatment. Laser hair reduction effectively removes undesired hair on the face, chin, neck, back, underarm, legs, and bikini area.
How many treatments are needed?
Treatments vary by patient, pigmentation, and thickness of hair to be removed. Hair grows in cycles so the procedure is typically scheduled to address each new growth cycle for optimal results.
