Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal  has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures over the past decade.  More and more men and women are opting for this permanent hair reduction technique.  There are several methos of removing hair with various lasers and l light-based energy devices.

In the past, methods of removal resulted in a temporary elimination of hair. These methods include waxing, shaving , plucking, tweezing, threading and electrolysis.

Although electrolysis does result in permanent reduction, it is incredibly time consuming and may  take many years to treat just an upper lip.

Laser hair removal may also be a good alternative in helping those who suffer from ingrown hairs and irritation from shaving

Lasers remove hair by targeting the pigment in the hair. The light from the laser is absorbed by the dark pigment in the hair resulting in heat and destruction of the follicle  which is responsible for hair growth.

It is important note that laser will not work on white, gray or light hair because the laser light does not get absorbed if there is no pigment present.

We use the Cynosure Apogee alexandrite laser for hair removal and have seen very consistent results.   We encourage patients to schedule a formal consult to see if this modality would be effective for you.
