What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a solution for men and women who have excess hair on their bodies and are dissatisfied with the results of shaving and waxing. The procedure destroys individual hair follicles in the treatment area to leave the skin smooth and hair-free. Laser hair reduction is becoming an increasingly popular hair removal treatment among men and women who would like an alternative to shaving and waxing. It can be used to significantly reduce unwanted hair from almost any area, including the face, underarms, arms, bikini area, legs, back, and chest.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
- Treatment may take less than one hour, depending on the location on the body
- More comfortable than waxing
- Longer lasting results compared to other techniques
- Can be used on almost any area of the body
What Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
We offer hair reduction via the Candela 1064 Gentle: YAG. This laser is considered appropriate for use on all Fitzpatrick skin types, including the darkest tones. The Candela is considered to be very effective at hair reduction and the better choice for the darkest skin tones. A series of treatment sessions are required for the most effective reduction of hair, as only actively growing hair may be targeted for reduction. In this way, hairs that were in a dormant growth phase during a previous session can be treated in a future one. In addition, individual factors such as hair and skin color can affect the required number of sessions. Some reddening may be experienced in the treated areas, but most can return to normal activities immediately after a session.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The Candela 1064 Gentle: YAG is a good laser hair removal option for all skin types, including tanned skin, but you should discuss your hair removal needs during a personal consultation. The appointment allows you to learn about the treatment and ask any questions that you may have about our laser hair removal procedure.
