What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal employs laser energy that can selectively target microstructures, such as hair follicles. With its targeted absorption by melanin, it gives the optimal balance between safely treating all skin types and effectively removing unwanted hair.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with laser energy. Unlike other treatments, the laser beam/BroadBand Light(BBL) treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical. The laser utilizes a unique computer-guided scanning system that automates the treatment, ensuring your skin is rapidly and evenly treated. The computer places the beam or light in an optimum pattern for your skin to experience a safe, effective and gentle treatment. All skin types from light to dark can be treated.
Can Laser Hair Removal Treat In-Grown Hair?
Yes, laser energy can be used to remove all types of hair. When “shaving bumps” cover follicles, the laser energy can still penetrate to the hair follicle for a safe and effective treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your physician will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your physician may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What To Expect After Laser Hair Removal
Temporary pigmentation changes are possible but seldom occur. Always discuss your concerns with your physician prior to treatment. What should I expect after treatment? Some redness and slight swelling may be present in the area that has been treated. However, this should subside within a few hours. If any prolonged redness or swelling occurs, please consult your physician immediately. Keep the treated area clean, use at least SPF 30 sunscreen when going outdoors, and follow physician instructions carefully.
