Laser Hair Removal

One of the great technological innovations of the 20th century is laser hair removal. Today’s advanced lasers can eliminate excess hair with minimal discomfort and no downtime. They are safe and effective for all skin types and colors.

The Procedure

In the right hands, there should be no burning, and no scarring. You may feel a mild stinging sensation during treatment, but it doesn’t linger. You can return to normal activities immediately following your appointment.

Several sessions are needed to achieve optimal results. The exact number depends on the area being treated. Ironically, facial hair grows more slowly than that on the legs or chest, and often requires more treatment sessions.

Modern laser technology has revolutionized hair removal. In the past, there was not a truly good solution to unwanted body hair. Electrolysis yields lasting results, but only removes 35 percent of hair at best, and side effects such as hyperpigmentation or scarring can occur. Early lasers were only safe for select skin types; they caused burning to skin of color, and tanned skin.

Is Laser Hair Removal Right for You?

Virtually anyone with pigmented hair will see great results from laser hair removal. It works best on black or brown hairs. If you are completely gray, or have very blonde hair, it will be ineffective, because the lasers interact with pigments in the follicles. We also offer waxing for those who are not good candidates for laser treatment.

Laser hair removal is available at many doctors' offices and spas. However, it can pose a risk unless the right laser is used by a skilled professional. Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with a suite of lasers to ensure that we have the best device for every situation. Dr. Jonith Breadon has extensive experience treating skin of color, and a keen understanding of how unique each person’s skin is. For example, if a patient has a suntan, she will use a special laser that bypasses the skin pigment, and targets the follicle.

This is a great option for men and women who want to avoid harsh creams, razor bumps, and the irritation of perpetual regrowth. It can be used on virtually any area of the body, including face, back, chest, legs, underarms, and bikini lines.
