Then laser hair removal may be the right treatment for you!
Laser hair removal is a heat-based laser treatment that provides permanent hair reduction for unwanted hair anywhere on the body. Laser hair removal is also effective in the treatment of Pseudofolliculitis barbae (razor bumps).
At Weiler Plastic Surgery, our laser hair removal equipment uses state-of-the-art lasers to remove unwanted hair, and with greater speed and comfort than other methods. This laser hair removal procedure is able to safely treat men and women of all skin types and colors. It can also be used to treat a wide range of hair types, from coarse to thin and from dark to light. Laser hair removal can be used to provide silky, smooth skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
- Bikini Area
Treatment can also include:
Using highly concentrated energy, hair follicles are targeted and pulses of light are emitted. The laser’s energy is attracted to the pigment of hair (caused by melanin), the same way sunlight is attracted to darker clothing. Since the melanin in hair is more concentrated than the surrounding skin, the follicle absorbs the light first. This damages and eventually destroys the follicle and also explains why the surrounding skin is left undamaged. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second.
During laser hair removal treatment, the laser’s pulse may feel very similar to that of a small snap of a rubber band. Within one to three weeks after the treatment, you will notice the treated hair beginning to fall out. While one treatment can be quite effective, optimal results are usually seen be receiving a series of treatments. After each treatment, you should notice fewer and fewer hairs returning for substantial hair reduction. Our aestheticians recommend eight treatments to achieve optimal results.
