Lasers have been used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. The use of lasers for hair removal has become very popular. The laser emits a beam of light that passes through the skin, targeting pigment, and is absorbed into the hair follicle. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Sun exposure should be avoided 4-6 weeks before and after treatment for the safety of your skin. The best laser candidate has dark hair. If the hair has no pigment, such as gray or blond hair, it will not respond to a laser treatment. We have several lasers available to treat all skin types.
