Did You Know…
A tan can absorb some of the energy of laser light and prevent the laser light from reaching the hair follicle. Do not get a tan before laser hair removal.
In the 1450s, women would shave their pubic hair to get rid of lice. And then they would have a pubic hair wig made as a replacement.
Neurotoxins are medications developed from the bacteria known as clostridium botulinum. Researchers noticed that people infected with this bacterium had suffered muscle weakness. Dysport and Botox have been developed from this discovery.
The same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.
The idea behind the CoolSculpt machine started after doctors noticed that children who sucked on popsicles lost the fat in their cheeks without damage to the skin. It is amazing what can develop from a simple observation.
The word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”
Just before the laser is fired, a jet of frozen air is sent to the skin to protect the skin from the laser energy and to decrease the pain.
In the past some doctors tried to dye the patient hair dark so that more of the laser energy would be absorbed by the hair and thereby the laser would more effectively remove the hair. Unfortunately, it did not work because the dye did not reach the hair follicle.
The light from a hair removal laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle. The laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicle and is destroyed. Since people have different skin colors, we need to have lasers with a variety of colors of laser light.

Laser Hair Removal

So Smooth

Laser hair removal gives you a sense of freedom. Freedom from painful waxing, time-consuming plucking, constant shaving and irritating chemical depilatories – all of which take time, are a hassle and temporary. With laser hair removal, you’ll never have to worry about unwanted hair stopping you from wearing what you want, when you want, whether it’s a pool party or a black tie affair. Plus, it means never having to deal with ingrown hairs or razor burn again.

You’ll wish you’d made the decision a long time ago

We perform laser hair removal on both men and women, young and old. The one thing they all have in common is that they wish they’d chosen laser hair removal earlier. Typically, just four to seven treatments, performed five to six weeks apart, completely eliminate unwanted hair anywhere on the face or body.

Laser hair removal is quick. Bikini and facial areas can take less than 10 minutes, while larger areas like legs, backs and chests take a bit longer. Laser hair removal is performed in our office and is virtually painless, so you can quickly get on with your day – no downtime.

Candela lasers are gentle and effective

The Candela lasers are FDA approved and considered the best in the field. We use the Candela GentleLASE® and the GentleYag® Systems to safely remove hair without damaging delicate pores and skin.

The laser emits a beam of light that goes straight to the hair follicle. The light transforms into heat, which destroys the follicle and stops regrowth. Though very powerful and effective, laser hair removal can be performed on nearly every part of the body. And today’s lasers work on all skin types and colors.
