Laser Hair Removal
How does laser remove hair?
Highly controlled flashes of laser beams are selectively absorbed by hair follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages and destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle- all without damaging surrounding tissue. Hair follicles are usually in different growth cycles at different times in relation to one another. Since the follicle must in active growth in order to be affected by the laser, several treatments spread over several months are required to assure the destruction of all hair follicles.

What happens during a treatment?
It begins by trimming away the hair above the skin. You may be asked to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. Next, a cold gel is spread over the treatment area. The laser handpiece is then applied to your skin and pulses of laser begin disabling your unwanted hair. When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area falls out over the next week or two.

What does the treatment feel like?
Each pulse of laser feels like a slight sting or pinch, similar to the snap of a rubber band. Topical anesthetics may be used but most people don’t require it.

Can all hair be treated?
Our state of the art lasers offer you customized treatment according to your hair color, texture and body location. Any hair with at least some pigment in it (black, brown, red and even blond) can be treated effectively.

Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours. On rare occasions, some blistering or bruising may occur, but typically resolves quickly. The skin may also become lighter or darker following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks. Limiting sun exposure before and after treatments will minimize risk of complications.

What kind of results should I expect?
Our lasers are FDA approved for permanent hair reduction. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to your specific kind of hair and skin. Usually five to six treatments spread out 8 weeks apart are required to achieve satisfactory results. Following each treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities.

What type of laser do you use?
We carry the latest models of the Light Sheer laser (Diode laser, top XC Model) and the Epilight (Intense Pulsed Light). Both of these lasers are FDA approved for permanent hair reduction and have been shown to provide excellent results with all types of hair and skin colors.

Which laser is right for me?
Depending on your skin tone and color, and the coarsness and darkness of your hair, the doctor will decide which laser would be best for your specific needs. However, we prefer to use the Light Sheer on most of our patients because it is faster, and provides extra skin cooling protection via it's chill tip.

Skin Contact Cooling / Chill Tip.
It is very important to protect the top layers of the skin from becoming too hot during a laser treatment. Many lasers have different cooling mechanisms to protect the top skin, however, none of them can match the cooling protection which is provided by the Light Sheer's contact cooling Chill Tip. The tip of the Light Sheer is made of saphire which conducts heat very quickly. This saphire tip is constantly cooled to 5 degrees by the control of the laser's computer. When the tip of the laser is placed on the skin, it cools down the upper layer of the skin and protects it from getting too hot. This allows us to use higher energies at a safe level, and thus obtain better results.
