Shaving, tweezing, and waxing is such a pain! Not only are these hair removal techniques painful; they also take up too much of your valuable time. They can also be expensive, and you might often find yourself frustrated with imperfect results.
Luckily, you now have another option: Laser hair removal is fast, effective, and permanent (after a few sessions). Never again will you suffer through itchy regrowth periods, “missed spots”, expensive and time-consuming hair removal appointments, burning and cuts! After just a few laser hair removal sessions, you won’t have to worry about waxing, shaving, or tweezing ever again.
Laser hair removal works for everyone. It is true that some skin tones and hair types are more compatible with the laser than others, meaning more complete hair removal in fewer office visits. But we can effectively treat anyone with our laser hair removal procedure, and tailor our treatments to suit you.
Laser hair removal is easy and comfortable. Most patients say that the laser feels like a rubber band lightly snapping against their skin. Anesthesia is not required, and some patients even fall asleep during their procedures! Afterward, you might feel as though you have acquired a mild sunburn on treated areas of skin. This sensation usually disappears after two to twelve hours, with no lasting side effects. Most of our patients find pain relief methods to be unnecessary, but some do use ice or cold gel on the affected areas.
On the day of your appointment, we will use a pulsed laser which sends a focused beam of light straight into your hair follicles. The light is converted to heat, damaging or weakening each follicle without harming surrounding tissues. The result is permanent hair removal, as the follicle is unable to regrow hair after treatment.
Results vary depending upon your hair type, but most people see significant results after just two or three laser hair removal treatments. Occasionally, some stubborn areas of hair are not fully removed, but the texture becomes much softer and lighter (like baby hair). Call our office for a consultation, and we can discuss the likely effectiveness of laser hair removal for your hair type.
