Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted or excessive hair growth is a very common condition. Excessive hair can occur on the face, leg, arm, underarm chest and bikini line. The best method to remove unwanted hair is by laser.

Laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to produce ling-term hair reduction. Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that requires training to perform. A beam of highly concentrated light produced by the laser gets absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles, which vaporizes the pigment, eliminating or significantly block hair growth. ClearlyDerm uses the Candela GentleMax Laser, which offers first in class treatment efficacies in hair removal, including thinner hair which other lasers cannot target. The GentleMax can be used on all skin types.

The laser treatment itself may cause a slight stinging or heat sensation. Depending on the area of hair removal, some sensitivity can occur. Treatment time is different depending on the location and size of the area being treated. Several treatments will likely be necessary to successfully remove all the hair from a particular area. Your follow-up sessions will be scheduled at least one month apart to remove any hair follicles that have started to grow since the last treatment. Generally speaking 4-5 treatment sessions are necessary.
