Laser Hair Removal: Everything You Need To Know

Are you tired of dealing with unwanted, excess body hair? Laser hair removal means less shaving, tweezing or plucking so you can enjoy beautiful, smooth skin!

As one of the best ways to achieve permanent hair reduction, laser hair removal is the fastest growing and most requested cosmetic service at our plastic surgery clinic.

From eliminating embarrassing facial hair to decreasing the amount of time you spend on your morning routine, laser hair removal can drastically improve the quality of your life.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that uses lasers to target the roots of hair beneath the surface of the skin. It is designed to be used on most parts of the body and can treat:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini area

At our plastic surgery clinic, we offer the advanced GentleLase laser hair removal system to ensure that all of our patients, male and female, can enjoy the long-lasting benefits of smooth and silky skin.

How does GentleLase Laser Hair Removal Work?

The GentleLase Laser Hair Removal System works by directing a high-intensity light beam through the treatment area which is then absorbed by the pigment (color) within the hair shaft.

The laser generates a therapeutic heat, eliminating the hair follicle’s ability to grow hair, leading to permanent hair loss and smooth, beautiful skin.

Duration: The length of the laser hair removal procedure varies from patient to patient depending on skin type, coarseness of hair and size of treatment area.

Our plastic surgeons will be best able to advise you on the timing of your specific treatment. Call Now >

Number of treatments: We recommend a course of treatment (usually 4-8 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart) for optimum permanent hair removal results.

Results: You can enjoy the results of our laser hair removal system almost immediately. The treatment area will remain virtually hair-free between your appointments.

Benefits of GentleLase Laser Hair Removal

The GentleLase hair removal system uses the most advanced technology and has many incredible benefits including:

  • More effective melanin absorption as compared to other similar machines, leading to more effective destruction of hair follicles and consequential hair loss.
  • More effective at removing finer, thinner hairs than other systems
  • Incorporates a skin cooling system for greater comfort during the treatment
  • Designed and built for operator comfort to increase treatment control, improve application and provide a safer, more effective treatment.

Am I a Candidate for GentleLase Hair Removal?

A unique benefit of this laser hair removal system is that it is effective on nearly all skin types, including patients with darker skin tones. It can also treat clients of all hair types, from fine to coarse.

However, laser hair removal is generally NOT recommended for patients who:

  • Are pregnant
  • Have extremely light red, grey or blond hair
  • Have tattoos
  • Have a tendency towards severe keloid scarring

Our qualified plastic surgeons are able to assess your skin hair type to better determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for our GentleLase hair removal system.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
