Why keep shaving and waxing? The advancement of light energy-based hair removal technologies has allowed Laser Hair Removal (LHR) to become one of the most popular aesthetic procedures requested by patients today.

The procedure targets the pigment in hair. The darker the hair, the more energy it absorbs and the more easily it is eliminated. The treatment is a safe and effective way to PERMANENTLY remove unwanted hair from the face and body. In addition, laser hair removal is now more comfortable than ever!

Although almost any skin type can be treated, generally patients with lighter skin and darker hair will respond more optimally. Though pigment in hair is the intended target, any extra pigment in the skin will divert energy away.

This is one reason it is critical to avoid tanning prior to LHR. It is also why patients with blonde or grey hair tend to respond more poorly or not at all. For patients with darker skin types, extra precaution and expertise is required to protect the skin.

Also, remember that men can be treated with Laser Hair Removal and respond just as well as women! Forgo all the shaving and trimming. Why not maintain you well "manscaped" appearance without the razor burn!

Generally about 4 to 6 treatments are required for most patients.  These treatments are usually scheduled about 6 weeks apart.  There should be a remarkable decrease in the quantity and thickness of the hair in areas treated following each session of LHR.

If you have been putting it off, maybe it's time to treat yourself!  Contact Park Dermatology and book for your first PERMANENT Laser Hair Removal session today ... and prepare to throw your razor away!
