Laser Hair Removal


Dermatologists use lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. All light-based hair removal machines differ in their choice of wavelength, pulse duration, power, fluence, spot size or skin cooling method. These features are important and can influence the safety and efficacy of the treatment.

Our advanced PrestigeHR Diode laser, uses a combination of high-frequency pulses, customized pulse width and advanced cooling technology to ensure greater skin penetration and destroy the deepest hair follicles in the safest manner possible.Deep penetration is necessary for laser hair removal because the entire hair follicle and its bulb need to be treated.

Removing the unwanted hair can take 6 sessions or more. Afterwards, laser hair removal is permanent on most areas of the body. Laser hair removal can be repeated when the hair regrows. The lasers designed for hair removal can be used on most parts of the body.

Many lasers effectively treat large areas. Laser hair removal can treat the:
· Back
· Bikini area
· Chest
· Face, especially the upper lip and chin
· Neck
· Shoulders

Before you have laser hair removal, be sure to tell your dermatologist if you have:
· A tendency to scar.
· A recent tan.
· Ever had a keloid (type of raised scar).
· A tendency to get outbreaks of cold sores or genital herpes.
· Taken isotretinoin (a medicine used to treat severe acne) — or are taking any other medicine

The success of this procedure depends on several factors. These factors include where the unwanted hair is on the body, the color and coarseness of the hair, and where the hair is in its growth cycle.

If you have laser hair removal, it is important to start following your dermatologist’s instructions immediately. This helps reduce potential side effects.’
