LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal is a safe, effective procedure to removing unwanted hair. Women often seek laser treatment for unwanted facial hair, while men most commonly wish to eliminate unwanted hair from the back, shoulders, neck, beard area and ears.
With each treatment, you should see a significant reduction in the quantity and thickness of hair in the treated area. Typically, full treatment of a given area requires 4 to 6 visits.
During the laser hair removal procedure a focused beam of light emitted by the laser is absorbed only into the pigment located in the hair follicle. The light is pulsed for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to disable the follicle, but not so long that excess heat is transferred to the skin surrounding the hair. When the hair follicle absorbs the light, it is destroyed. Laser facial hair removal is an appropriate procedure for women and men who have unwanted hair on the facial area. This procedure may also be used on other body parts.
A topical anesthetic may be applied to the treated area few minutes prior to the treatment. Everyone in the room will use eye protection. Laser hair Removal Treatment consists of placing a small hand-piece near the skin and administering laser pulses over the area to be treated. The procedure can take as little as 10 minutes or up to an hour (or more), depending on the area treated.
Photographs are usually taken before hair removal procedure. Please do not wax, pluck or have electrolysis done for at least 4 weeks before your consultation/treatment appointment. You may clip or shave your hair up to three days prior to your treatment. If you are having a treatment on the upper lip area and have a history of cold sores or fever blisters it is important to let the physician know prior to the treatment.
