Laser Hair Removal
If you are tired of waxing, shaving, or plucking unwanted hair, laser treatments are the safest, most successful method to reduce hair growth anywhere on the body. Both men and women can benefit from laser treatments and enjoy an 80-90% reduction of hair growth.
How does it work?
The GentleMax laser delivers a concentrated light that targets hair at the root. The light of the laser is absorbed by the pigment in the follicle and the hair is destroyed. The laser can treat hundreds of hair follicles at the same time, and provides a cooling pulse to reduce discomfort. On average it can take 3-6 treatments per area spaced 6-8 weeks apart and fewer hairs will return after each treatment.
DOES THE LASER WORK ON ALL HAIR COLORS ?
The laser works the best on dark hair. Blonde, red, white and gray hair are not good candidates as there is not enough pigment in the follicle for the laser to target.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIMe?
Patients typically can resume normal activities right after the procedure and some redness may be noticed in the area that was treated from a few minutes to a few hours. Tanning and sun exposure of the treated area should be avoided for 2 weeks after a treatment.
