Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses pulsed laser energy to remove unwanted hair from a targeted area, while leaving surrounding skin unharmed. Not only is it safe and typically painless, laser hair removal through Lumenis has been FDA approved to remove hair from nearly any area of the body.
Although there are many temporary treatments, including tweezing, shaving, using depilatory creams and waxing, to remove unwanted hair, patients seeking more permanent and less irritating/painful methods are frequently good candidates for laser hair removal.
Candidates for Laser Hair Removal
Because the technology used to remove hair is based off of melanin (pigment), the best candidates have dark hair and light skin. Conversely, those with blond, red, gray or white hair and dark skin are usually not good candidates, some may still be treatable. Skin types 1-5 are safe to treat through the technological advances.
