Laser Hair Removal

Gentle, Effective Laser Treatment 

Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive treatment that can reduce or remove unwanted hair on the face and body. It can effectively treat large areas with minimal discomfort. 

 

Our office utilizes the Candela GentleLASE 755 nanometers (nm) Alexandrite laser which specifically targets darker hair in lighter skinned individuals.  The Candela GentleLASE laser, wavelength is specifically absorbed by darker colors and is not effective for light hair.  The Candela GentleLASE laser gently emits a beam of light that passes through the skin to the growth area of the hair follicle, where the light is absorbed by darker hair.  The wavelength of our laser allows the beam to be absorbed directly by the hair follicle of darker hair.  Upon reaching the hair follicle of darker hair the laser energy is then transformed into heat, destroying the hair and hair follicle, while leaving the surrounding area of skin unaffected. The GentleLASE 755nm laser features Candela’s Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD™) to maximize safety and comfort. The GentleLASE 755nm laser is appropriate for Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV. Please utilize this site to see if the Candela GentleLASE 755 nm Alexandrite laser is safe to use for your skin type. 

 

Expectations

Laser hair removal effectively reduces hair growth, but does not guarantee complete, permanent hair removal.  There is generally a reduction in the number of hairs, as well as the diameter of the hairs which remain.  Typically, 3-4 sessions are needed to achieve prolonged hair-free periods.  The procedure works best on coarse, dark hair and will not work on light, blonde or red hair.
