Laser Hair Reduction
Laser hair treatment is a permanent hair reduction that is suitable for most skin types. An alternative to waxing, shaving and hair removal cream, permanent laser hair removal is effective at targeting stubborn hairs while leaving surrounding skin unblemished.
With few side effects, the treatment is suitable for use on any area of the body. It can also be used on smaller areas such as the lip or chin. Common treatment areas are the face, arms, legs and bikini area.
Laser hair removal can give both males and females increased confidence in their silky smooth skin, with the elimination of unwanted hair. The results will become visible after six sessions, which are spaced 6 weeks apart. We use state-of-the-art laser technology during sessions that may last from 10 minutes up to one hour, depending on the body surface.
With our affordable prices, your laser hair reduction can be spread across 6-12 treatments depending on the number of laser treatments required.
Whether you want to reduce or eliminate unwanted hair, call us today and discuss your concerns with our skin experts.
Laser Hair Reduction at Trillium Creek Dermatology & Surgery Center
We use a Yag Laser to gently, painlessly and effectively remove and reduce the growth of unwanted hair. The Yag Laser is 5 times safer and more efficient than other cosmetic hair laser removal systems. The energy is concentrated on the unwanted hair, destroying it without compromising surrounding normal tissues.
Almost any area of the body can be treated with the Yag Laser with the exception of the eye area. Unwanted hair on your chin, sideburns, upper and lower lips, neck, chest, arms, legs, bikini line and back can be reduced.
Treatments are gentle, with little discomfort and the process is fast, taking from 1-30 minutes depending on the area being treated. For example, one treatment on the upper lip only takes 1 minute, while underarms may take 3 minutes and larger areas, such as the legs, could take up to 30 minutes.
Laser Hair Removal is fast and there is no downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately.
Every patient is different and the number of treatments will vary. However, hair grows in cycles and to affect every hair, a minimum of 6-8 treatments every 6 weeks is standard.
It is important not to pluck or wax the area being treated 6 weeks prior to treatment or during the course of treatment, although you may shave. It is also important not to tan, as hyper-pigmentation or scarring can occur.
Hair will be present in the treated area and will fall out within 2-3 weeks following treatment. New hairs from subsequent hair cycles will need to be treated in additional sessions. Typically, several treatments are needed.
