LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Smooth as silk- All day, Every day.
For many people, unwanted hair causes major self-image issues. And getting rid of it can be a painful, time-consuming experience. But now there are far better choices than unpleasant hair-removal creams and depilatories, sharp razors, hot wax or painful electrolysis needles. The Dermatology Center's laser hair removal technology is a safe, comfortable and proven solution, removing hair from virtually any part of your body and keeping it off.
HOW DOES Laser Hair Removal WORK?
Laser hair removal works by slowing the growing capacity of hair follicles that are in the active growth cycle at time of treatment. Since hairs will enter their growth cycle at different times, several treatments are necessary to disable all of the follicles in a given area.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?
A topical anesthetic may be applied prior to treatment to minimize discomfort. Patients describe the treatment pulses as a heating sensation on the skin. You may experience some redness and swelling following the treatment that normally resolves in a short amount of time.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments you may require will depend upon the area you wish to have treated, the hair density, and your hair’s growth cycle. This cycle is influenced by many factors: age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism. Some hair is more resilient and therefore more resistant to treatment.
At The Dermatology Center, we provide treatments in packages based upon the patient’s needs. Once the treatment regimen is complete, it may be necessary to come in for maintenance treatments, if there is regrowth.
