What is laser hair removal?
One of the most common cosmetic procedures done in the U.S., Laser Hair Removal beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles that absorb the light. The laser destroys the hair on the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and most other areas.
Laser hair removal requires 6 to 8 visits. This is due to hair growth cycles (only about the 20-30% of hair is growing at any one time). Electrolysis may require 10 - 35 or more visits. Our 810 Diode Laser has long-pulse / short-pulse technology which allows treatments on individuals with sun tans and darker complexions.
Also, now incorporated into our practice is my intense pulsed light (IPL) with Nano pulse technology hair removal device which allows treatment on darker complexions with high success.
Laser Hair Removal is now an affordable practically pain free process to get rid of unwanted hair. If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. You should also avoid sun exposure before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.
