Laser Hair Removal
Hair is normal, of course, but depending on ethnicity and just plain old aging, hair can get pretty dark and coarse (in all the wrong areas!), requiring daily shaving or tweezing and causing ingrowns. And, did we mention the ever-spreading bikini line or dark facial hair that occurs as we age? Laser technology offers an easy and permanent solution for unwanted hair, anywhere! Never tweeze again.
At Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center, we’ve been laser hair removal experts since 2001. Our advanced Lumenis Light Sheer Duet laser combines state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology.
- Fast treatments: we can treat your full legs or back in about a half hour.
- Minimal discomfort: this laser is about 75% less "painful" than older lasers.
- Superior results: on average, patients see 80% hair reduction in five treatment.
For the most effective results and the fewest treatments, stop tweezing or waxing about a month before treatments. (Shaving is fine!) On the day of your treatment, we may use topical numbing cream or just ice. During treatment, the laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair (sorry, no lasers work on white, gray or red hair), to destroy the follicle in any of the hairs in the active growing phase. This permanently prevents any future growth. There’s no downtime after laser hair removal, and any redness can be covered with make-up. We can treat just about anywhere on your face or body.
