Laser Hair Reduction
Unsightly or unwanted hair can be a source of embarrassment or frustration for many men and women. Common hair removal options are either short-lived or painful, which can make the process vexing and tedious. Using revolutionary laser technology, you can safely and permanently remove stubborn, unwanted deposits of hair.
Ideal laser hair reduction candidates are in good health with no cuts or surface damage on the skin being treated. Patients should have realistic expectations about their results. Men and women can both benefit from laser hair reduction by treating undesirable hair on one or more of the following areas:
- Face, including the chin, neck, and sideburns
- Arms, including the underarms
- Bikini and pubic area
Laser hair reduction is a quick and gentle process performed in an office setting. The laser directs energy into the hair follicle, disrupting the hair growth cycle. After the first treatment, patients will find that it takes longer for their hair to grow back, that their hair is lighter, and that their hair regrowth is less. Over time and following multiple treatments, the hair follicle is permanently destroyed and hair no longer grows, leaving smooth skin in its place.
Laser hair reduction is safe and effective for patients of all skin tones and types. Each laser hair reduction treatment is tailored to best treat your specific skin type for the best results possible. Depending on your hair growth cycle and the size of the treatment area, you may require anywhere from three to eight treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart.
Most patients can immediately return to their regular activities after treatment. You may experience some mild skin irritation and redness, which usually resolves itself quickly. Keep treated areas away from direct sun exposure and always protect your skin with sunscreen.
Most patients can see a noticeable reduction in the amount and thickness of their hair after one treatment. Once you have completed your series of treatments, you will cease to experience hair growth on the treated areas.
