Laser hair removal services involve board-certified dermatologists using laser technology to remove unwanted hair and reduce hair growth, resulting in permanent hair reduction and finer hair in the target area.
With laser hair removal, you can enjoy the feeling of smooth, hairless skin on these areas:
Laser hair removal is not used anywhere near the eyes due to the risk of eye damage.
Laser hair removal works best on darker, coarse hair. This procedure will not be as effective for removing white or gray hair or peach fuzz on the face.
Laser hair removal permanently reduces hair growth, resulting in less hair and finer hair in the target area.
The cost of laser hair removal depends on the area treated. You can discuss the cost at the time of your consultation. Most people are pleased with the results and comment that it is well worth the expense.
The hair removal laser emits a light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This light energy heats and damages the hair follicles, which slows down or stops hair growth and results in finer hair.
Results vary for each individual, depending on their hair growth cycle, hair color, skin tone, etc. Some patients see a permanent reduction in hair, but others may require periodic touch-up sessions to see permanent changes.
Different areas of your body will tolerate the heat from the laser better than others. Some patients describe the sensation as being snapped with a rubber band. Laser hair removal is much less painful than electrolysis, hot waxing, and plucking.
