Southern Dermatology offers laser hair reduction, a safe and effective method of getting rid of unwanted hair.
- Permanent loss of hair in target areas after 3-7 sessions
- Treatment is quick and easy
- No discomfort, raiser burn, bumps, or ingrown hair
Laser reduction works by targeting the darker pigmented hair follicles. The heat from the laser overloads the darker pigments and soon the follicles shut down. After each treatment, the follicles stop producing hair—leaving your skin free and smooth. Of course, the best part is that after a few treatments, the unwanted hair follicles close down forever. No more shaving!
There are several reasons to consider treatment. Many people feel embarrassed by unwanted hair in various areas. The good news is that laser hair reduction has advanced to the point of being highly effective in virtually any area of the body. It is also quick, easy, and relatively painless. The majority of our customers decide to receive treatment simply to save time, energy, and stress.
What to expect:
The process is very simple. You will be set on a comfortable chair. So far so good. We will protect any sensitive areas. So if we’re treating your face, we will wrap your hair in a cloth and cover your eyes with goggles. We will apply cooling gel to help protect your skin and allow the laser to glide across whatever area we are treating. When we begin treatment, we use custom setting to match your skin type so the process is relatively painless. Our skilled physicians will make sure you are comfortable the whole process.
Once you’ve received treatment you can continue your life with less stress and more confidence, pick up new hobbies, and participate in activities that used to horrify you: swimming, camping, and traveling. No need to carry that razor in your pocket.
FAQs About Laser Hair Reduction:
- WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR AREAS FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL
The most popular areas are female facial hair, bikini line hair and back hair for me.
- WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN IPL AND A LASER?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and is not a laser. IPLs are effective for some cosmetic procedures, though lasers are the more powerful method for hair removal.
- HOW DO LASERS REMOVE HAIR?
Hair removal lasers emit a light at a specific wavelength that is known to be absorbed by the pigment (color) in the hair follicle — without damaging the surrounding skin. The light is converted to heat energy, which in turns disables the hair follicle so that it will not produce another hair.
- AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal works best on individuals with light skin and coarse, dark hair (brown and black) hair. Individuals with blonde, red or light brown hair may be candidates, though a consultation will be needed to tell.
- HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Hair grows in repeating cycles, and only in the actively growing phase does the hair contain enough pigment to absorb sufficient energy to disable the hair follicle. When hair is in the dormant phase, it has little or no pigment, and it cannot absorb the laser light. When you come in to LaserLight for your treatment, we disable all of the hair follicles with actively growing hair in the treatment area. A few weeks later, some of your dormant hairs will have moved into the actively growing stage, and you will come in for a treatment to disable those. As this cycle gets repeated, you experience increasing reduction of hair.
- HOW LONG DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT TAKE?
A number of factors determine the length of treatment and number of treatments needed. Typically, legs and back take an hour to an hour and a half, the upper lip takes 10 minutes and the neck or underarms take 20 minutes.
