If you are tired of tweezing and shaving body and facial hair, then laser hair removal is the treatment for you. Our office uses Cutera's Excel HR laser to comfortably and effectively remove unwanted hair.
During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
Ideal patients have light skin and dark hair, allowing for the most efficient treatments with the least amount of side effects. Patients with light colored or gray hairs are not good candidates because their hair lacks the pigment that is the target of the laser’s energy.
You'll typically need approximately 6 tretments for optimal results. That's because hair grows in three stages: the growth stage, the transitional stage, and the shedding stage. The hairs on your body are not always in the same stage, so you'll need to undergo several treatments, an average of six weeks apart, to catch all of them in the growth stage.
If you are ready to finally throw away your razor and tweezers, call today to schedule a consultation.
