As technology advances, more and more patients are seeking laser procedures to eliminate the unwanted effects of aging and achieve a permanent reduction in facial and body hair. Laser treatments are safe, effective procedures that require little, if any, downtime and have minimal side effects.
Laser treatments use focused beams of light to heat and destroy old, damaged skin cells while stimulating the growth of new cells and collagen. This leaves the skin looking, younger, fuller and more refreshed.
Our Most Popular Laser Treatment is Laser Removal:
Many patients, both men and women, seek laser hair removal after becoming frustrated with temporary and often painful methods like shaving and waxing. Laser hair removal uses heat energy to destroy hair follicles and prevent hair growth for up to two years, while leaving the skin in the area undamaged.
Laser Treatment Procedure
Laser treatments are performed in the office without topical anesthesia, although ice and cooling gel are always applied to the treated area. Most patients report only mild discomfort during the procedure, and it is tolerated well. The entire procedure takes about 10 to 30 minutes to perform, depending on the size and location of the treated area. Patients can return to work immdiately following the procedure.
The results from our laser procedures vary depending on the type of treatment performed. Most patients will require multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve their desired results. Your doctor will decide how many treatments are right for you, and if additional touch-up treatments are needed at a later date.
Risks Of Laser Treatment
Laser treatments are considered safe for most patients. Although rare, some of the risks of laser treatments may include redness, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation and burning of the skin. These risks are usually mild, and resolve on their own within a few days.
