Laser hair removal has been used by millions of men and women who wish to avoid the tasks of shaving, waxing, threading, and other methods of temporarily removing unwanted hair. At EsthetixMD, we insist on the very best. We are proud to offer 6 different laser hair removal systems which are FDA-cleared.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The wavelengths of light produced by our device are safely absorbed into hundreds of follicles simultaneously in a single pulse of light. This pulse lasts only a fraction of a second, but quickly vaporizes existing hair. The controlled heat disables the follicle’s hair-producing capabilities, leading to lasting results.
Which areas can be treated?
Laser hair removal can be performed on all areas of the body, including the face, underarms, arms, back, legs, chest, nose, bikini area, and more.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Sophisticated technology prevents energy spikes, delivering a continuous flow of laser light for safety and comfort. This device is appropriate even for sensitive areas because it features a cooling tip that maintains comfortable temperatures on the skin’s surface.
How many treatments are needed?
Laser hair removal is popular because it reduces the need for continual grooming such as shaving and plucking. To achieve this goal, we will schedule a number of sessions in our comfortable office. Discuss the number of treatments and the time in which results will be seen with your medical professional.
What can be expected during laser hair removal?
When you visit EsthetixMD for laser hair removal, we focus on your comfort. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, we may apply topical anesthetic. Most patients find that laser treatments are very mild, causing little to no discomfort. The pulses of thermal energy absorbed by follicles tend to feel like a quick snap or pinch.
Are there side effects from treatment?
After laser treatment, the skin may appear slightly red, with minor swelling around hair follicles. It is also possible that you will experience no side effects at all. Whatever effects occur after treatment should not keep you from returning to your normal activities right away.
If you are ready to see your smoothest skin, we are here to help. Contact EsthetixMD today to consult with a member of our experienced staff about laser hair removal.
Is laser hair removal appropriate for all skin types and hair colors?
Historically, laser hair removal treatment has been most efficient on individuals with darker hair color. However, the latest devices have shown promising results for people with light brown, red, and even blonde hair.
