Waxing is painful and messy, depilatories damage sensitive skin, and shaving leaves you with unpleasant stubbles. If you feel like you spend half of your life in the bathroom dealing with hair removal products that provide only very temporary results then you should consider laser hair removal.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a permanent alternative that is relatively painless, safe and fast. Our laser hair removal procedure is designed to destroy or impair targeted hair growth by delivering computer guided long-pulse laser light directly down to the hair folicles. The beam of light is transmitted, via the pigment in the hair follicle, down the shaft to the root of the follicle where the heat generateddestroys the follicle. Since the beam is large in diameter, a number of hair follicles are affected simultaneously providing the most efficient hair removal process.
What to Expect during the Treatment?
During the laser hair removal procedure an automatic cooling system removes heat from the skin surface to protect the skin and reduce any potential discomfort. As a result, only a mild stinging sensation is felt during the laser hair removal procedure and no anesthesia or pain medication is required. If your skin is particularly sensitive, your skin can be treated with a topical anesthetic cream.
Our Cynosure Elite has be recognized as the most versatile laser hair removal machine for all skin types. We also use this machine to do laser facials for facial rejuvenation, to close dilated pores and to treat acne. It is effective in removing age spots, spider veins and some vascular lesions.
