Laser Hair Removal
Men and women are looking for methods to reduce the presence of unwanted hair from many body areas. Except for our palms, lips and soles of our feet, our entire body is covered with hair! For some individuals, hair grows in awkward areas of the body. The good news is, with the latest laser technology – that unwanted hair is an item of the past!
Plucking, waxing and bleaching should be avoided throughout the course of treatment. Shaving the area is always acceptable. Sun exposure should also be avoided.
At The Medical Spa, we can safely and gently remove unwanted hair anywhere on the body using a top-of-the-line laser or broadband light treatment. We can safely and comfortably treat all skin types, including ethnic skin. Our treatments target the different stages of hair growth aimed at disabling the hair follicles. Hair has three phases of growth: an active growth phase, an intermediate non-growth phase, and a resting phase with no hair follicle present. Duration of hair growth cycles vary with the location on the body. The laser can only eliminate the hair that is currently in an active growth cycle so multiple treatments are necessary over a time span (usually 4 week intervals) to remove hair from most areas. Our laser is a top-of –the-line laser that selectively targets hair follicles. Patients find our treatments to be much more efficient, gentle, and effective than other laser treatments.
Laser hair removal is the modern way to achieve smooth and sexy skin. The laser works by targeting the hair in the follicle, below the skin's surface. The lasers we use at The Medical Spa are FDA-approved, safe and effective. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Facial areas, bikini area, upper and lower legs, arms, chest, and back may be treated, leaving skin smooth, stubble - free and without the irritation of ingrown hairs. The laser delivers lasting hair reduction, typically within five treatments, without damaging the epidermis, regardless of skin type. Imagine no more shaving, tweezing, painful waxing, electrolysis, or ingrown hairs!
