For many, smooth, hair-free skin is the hallmark of classic beauty. Unfortunately, temporary hair removal solutions like waxing, plucking, and shaving can be a bigger hassle than they’re often worth. These options can be time-consuming, expensive, and downright painful. The good news is, even if you weren’t born with barely-there-hair, there are ways to enjoy baby-soft skin for good.
At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we use the latest, most advanced hair removal methods so you can safely remove hair with little to no pain, side effects, or downtime. Our patients are seeing exceptional, long-lasting results with non-invasive laser hair removal treatments.
What Is Laser Hair Removal & How Does It Work?
Laser hair removal is a relatively new treatment option that allows us to target the pigmentation at the base of the hair’s follicle effectively damaging it. Over time, the damaged hair dies and falls off. Treated follicles are generally unable to return leaving you hair-free for good. However, it is important to note that only hairs that are in their active growth phase can be addressed.
Laser hair removal is typically a no-downtime procedure. Most patients are able to schedule appointments into their busy lifestyles without difficulty and can get back to day-to-day activities immediately after treatment.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Laser Hair Removal?
Nearly anywhere that unwanted hair exists can be removed thanks to a wide variety of adaptors. No area is too big or too small for laser hair removal. Combat hair on the entire back, both legs, the underarm area, and so much more. Laser hair removal is so gentle that many men and women use it as a permanent option for addressing sensitive areas like the bikini region.
The number of treatments you’ll need can vary significantly based on a number of factors including your hair’s texture, tone, and location. Typically, darker hairs that are coarse respond best to treatment meaning fewer treatments. However, at Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we’re able to successfully eliminate almost any hair with specialized treatments.
Although you can expect a series of 5-8 treatments, the hair will become thinner and less noticeable with each consecutive treatment. The best way to determine how many sessions you’ll need is through an in-person consultation with one of our laser hair removal specialists. They’ll assess your individual concerns and customize a treatment plan that’s right for you.
