Continually shaving, waxing, and seeking temporary methods of keeping certain parts of the body hair-free is tedious and frustrating. Especially in warmer months, when you want to wear shorts, skirts, and sleeveless dresses, it seems like you can’t go more than a day or two with smooth skin when you need it. Laser hair reduction is an effective way of minimizing hair growth, with long-lasting results. If you’re at the point where you cannot stand one more torturous meeting with your waxer, or if you want to stop throwing away money on razors, consider a more permanent solution.
If you’ve spent any amount of time shaving your legs, underarms, forearms, or bikini area – much less all these together – you know how time-consuming this can be. Beyond the sheer inconvenience of shaving, the cost of buying expensive comfort razors and the creams necessary to get a close shave gets to be quite hefty. Even alternatives that prove to be slightly longer lasting, such as waxing, aren’t necessarily any easier or more cost-effective – not to mention the need to let the hair grow for weeks in between to effectively remove it with strips and waxing.
Laser hair reduction offers the benefits of long-lasting and effective hair removal, without having to purchase supplies for keeping skin smooth and stubble-free at-home. After several sessions, hair is eliminated or softened and refined to the point that it is invisible. You never have to worry about whether you’re ready to wear certain outfits or enjoy a day at the beach or pool; your skin will be smooth and virtually hair-free when you need it to be.
Laser technology has been approved by the FDA and in use to help create a smooth skin for decades.
The laser energy works by identifying the darkened pigment of the hair follicle’s root against the lighter skin tone, targeting it, and destroying it.
Because contrast between the hair and skin is essential to treatment, those with fair skin and dark hair are the easiest to treat; however, we have multiple lasers that are designed to pin-point contrast differences allowing us to treat a wide range of skin tones. The trickiest hair colors to treat with laser hair reduction are blonde, grey and red because they have little pigment of their own.
If we meet with you and determine by visual inspection or by test spot that you are not a good candidate for laser hair reduction, we can recommend other methods for hair reduction that are appropriate for you.
