Are you tired of shaving? Laser hair removal may be just the procedure you’re looking for. It’s a safe, effective treatment that permanently reduces hair growth wherever it is done, including the underarms, bikini area, legs, back, and lower face.
During a laser hair removal treatment session, we use a laser to target the hair follicle and gently reduce unwanted hair. The light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and converted to heat, which damages the follicles producing the hair and inhibits or delays future hair growth. The procedure works best for people who have brown or black hair.
Most people need an average of 5-6 laser hair removal treatments done 6-8 weeks apart to achieve their desired results. Body hair does not all grow at the same time, and the laser is not effective on hairs in the “resting” or telogen phase. With each treatment, significantly less hair grows back.
If you are interested in laser hair removal, sign up for a consultation to find out if it is the best option for your skin type and desired outcome. Patient treatment plans and results vary; in most cases, laser hair removal reduces but does not completely eradicate the hair. A typical response is an 80-90% reduction in hair growth.
