Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a safe, non-invasive way to effectively get rid of unwanted hair. While shaving and waxing only temporarily get rid of hair, lasers permanently reduce the number of hairs over time. Laser hair removal can treat hair on the face, arms, legs, underarms, bikini area, back and chest. The treatment is meant for both men and women of any skin type, and for both smaller and larger areas where hair is present.

Our Cutera Excel V laser is color-blind, making it safe and effective for all skin types. Patients appreciate the easy experience they receive with laser hair treatment. With soft, pulsating high-intensity light waves, the laser focuses directly on the hair follicle. A controlled amount of heat is sent to the hair follicle to be eliminated. Additionally, this gentle laser includes sapphire cooling technology, which follows the heat wave, and creates a near painless process. While being able to treat smaller areas of hair removal, the laser has a large spot size, which means it can eliminate more hair on one pulse.

Treatments are not only effective, but also quick! Each pulse treats multiple hair follicles at a time and only takes a fraction of a second. On average, treatments can be anywhere between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area. Patients are always impressed at how efficient laser hair removal can be. Typically, 3 to 6 treatments provide satisfying results.

Using light beams, lasers target dark coarse hair while simultaneously tightening the skin, leaving skin smoother and softer. This is the best method of hair removal to consider, especially if a patient has a history of ingrowns. Because the laser removes hair at the root or bulb of the hair, laser hair removal acts as prevention for ingrowns. Laser treatments can be customized, according to the thickness of your hair and color of your skin. In the past, a good candidate for laser hair removal was limited to those with fair skin and dark hair. Fortunately, with the most innovative lasers of today, we’re able to deliver amazing results to anyone with hair removal needs!
