Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal makes it possible to experience smoother skin anywhere on the body. Unlike shaving, depilatory creams, waxing, tweezing, and other common methods of hair removal, laser treatments produce lasting results. At Skin Wellness Dermatology, our patients are treated with the latest technology, promoting optimal results through a comfortable journey.

How We Do It

We conduct laser hair removal using the Candela GentleLASE® and GentleYAG® devices, which are safe and effective for even sensitive areas such as the bikini line or upper lip.

Areas For Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Additional areas on which GentleLASE® and GentleYAG® are used include:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Chin
  • Back

There are several approaches taken to produce smoother, hair-free skin. Laser hair removal has several benefits over traditional, temporary hair removal. These include:

  • Comfort. Waxing, plucking, and even shaving can be uncomfortable and must be regularly performed to address new hair growth. Electrolysis, an early method of permanent hair removal, treats follicles individually with electricity. This treatment is not only time-consuming but quite uncomfortable. GentleLASE® and GentleYAG® decrease the production of hair with efficient light energy, while a built-in cooling system delivers a mild cryogen to the upper layers of skin, maintaining comfort throughout the hair removal process.
  • Effective. GentleLASE® and GentleYAG® are gentle, comfortable, and effective at producing maximum results. After the completion of a treatment plan, designed to address new hair growth as it occurs, any regrowth of inconsequential hairs tends to be thinner and lighter.
  • Safe. Laser hair removal works by sending energy into the hair follicles themselves, where it is absorbed by the pigment in each hair. This energy then damages individual follicles, while causing no harm to surrounding skin cells. Once treatment is complete, there will be a significant reduction in the amount and thickness of hair growth and skin will remain smooth and gorgeous.

Our medical professionals are dedicated to the maintenance of healthy, beautiful skin. If you are experiencing hair growth in places you wish to remain smooth and hair-free, our laser hair removal treatments can lead you to your desired outcome.

Laser Hair Removal Services FAQs

Whether you’re curious about the treatment process, concerned about comfort, or wondering about effectiveness for different skin types and hair colors, we’ve got you covered. Our goal is to provide you with detailed insights into how laser hair removal can lead to permanent hair reduction, smooth skin, and a boost in self-confidence. Read on to discover how our state-of-the-art laser treatments can help you achieve the hair-free skin you desire.

What are the benefits of choosing laser hair removal over traditional hair removal methods?

Laser hair removal treatments offer a comfortable and effective solution for permanent hair reduction. Unlike shaving or waxing, which are temporary and often uncomfortable, laser treatments target the hair follicles with light energy, reducing hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin. This results in smoother skin with less frequent maintenance.

How does laser hair removal work for different skin types and hair colors?

Our laser hair removal services utilize advanced devices like the Candela GentleLASE® and GentleYAG®, which are designed to work effectively on various skin tones, including darker skin tones, and hair colors. The laser targets the melanin in the hair follicle, destroying it and preventing future hair growth, while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Can laser hair removal be used on sensitive areas like the bikini line or upper lip?

Yes, our laser hair removal process is safe and gentle enough for sensitive areas such as the bikini line and upper lip. The treatment area is cooled during the procedure, ensuring a comfortable experience while removing unwanted body hair.

What should I expect during the laser hair removal procedure, and does it hurt?

During the laser hair removal procedure, you’ll feel a mild sensation as the laser beam targets and destroys hair follicles. Most patients report minimal discomfort, thanks to the cooling system that protects the skin. The number of treatment sessions varies, but you can expect a significant reduction in hair growth and smoother skin after completing your personalized treatment plan.
