Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair can be embarrassing and a hassle to remove. Imagine if you could significantly reduce or eliminate unwanted hair. Now you can. Laser hair removal can safely reduce, with minimal risk, unwanted hair from any part of the face or body. It’s an effective option for most men and women.
About Laser Hair Removal
This noninvasive laser treatment uses gentle beams of light to get rid of hair. The hair’s melanin (the part that gives hair its color) absorbs the light, which turns into heat. The heat damages the follicle (but not the surrounding skin or tissue) and prevents it from producing more hair.
Laser hair removal can treat hair anywhere on the face or body. Women often treat the bikini area, chin, upper lip, and legs. Men can safely eliminate unwanted hair from places such as their chests and backs.
What Is the Treatment Like?
Administered by a licensed professional, a small hand-held laser device used to deliver the light beams is placed on the treatment area. You might experience some mild discomfort during the session-like the feeling of a rubber band snapping against your skin. A topical anesthetic can be applied 60 minutes before your session, if needed, and some people like to briefly apply an ice pack afterwards. During the procedure you’ll wear tinted goggles to protect your eyes from the laser light.
For each treatment area, we typically schedule 3 to 7 sessions about 4 to 5 weeks apart.
