Laser Hair Removal
We are pleased to offer the most recent advance in laser treatment for anyone desiring a comfortable, effective way to remove unwanted hair. With a gentle beam of laser light, we can help you solve the problem of unwanted hair.
- How does the laser work?
The laser emits a gentle beam of energy that passes through the skin to the hair follicle. The energy is then transformed into heat, which damages the follicle. This scientific principle called Thermokinetic Selectivity (TKS) makes this method of hair removal particularly effective.
- Why is TKS important?
TKS makes it possible for laser energy to “select” only hair follicles, while sparing surrounding skin from damage. This brings the cosmetic results you want with the clinical results you need.
- How do I know if I’m a good candidate for laser hair removal?
If you are concerned about unwanted hair, you are probably a good candidate for hair removal with the Cynosure laser. The most dramatic results occur for patients with light skin and dark hair, but TKS makes it possible for patients with darker skin to receive greater benefit from the procedure. Other factors can influence the treatment process, and are evaluated during your initial consultation.
- Is the treatment painful?
Most patients describe the treatment as a series of slight pin pricks to the skin. The majority of patients tolerate this sensation without requiring anesthetics. Within 30 minutes of treatment, the area may become pink or red, and this may last from a few hours to one day.
- How many treatments are required?
Hair grows in cycles. The laser only affects hair when it is in its early-growth phase. The laser will disable follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment. At any time, some hair follicles are dormant. Repeat sessions will threat these follicles when they re-enter the growth phase.
