Laser Hair Removal is a long term non-surgical option to removing unwanted hair. Lasers strategically destroy hair that contains melanin in the follicle, leaving surrounding skin unharmed and prevents future hair growth. At this time, laser hair removal only works on brown or black hair, which have the most melanin and responds best to the treatment. A variety of Laser Hair Removal devices are available using the following types of lasers: Nd-YAG, Pulsed Diode, and Alexandrite. New technology has allowed patients with darker skin to undergo effective Laser Hair Removal whereas previously, patients with light skin and dark hair were considered ideal patient. Treatment should be customized per patient and a series of treatments may be necessary to achieve best results.Request a Consultation
