Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a virtually painless way to remove unwanted hair.  Many men, and virtually all women, shave, wax or pluck unwanted hair on a regular basis. Most of these technique can be painful, and all of them are very temporary.  Laser hair removal is the only proven solution for quick, effective, and virtually painless hair removal.

The technology

laser hair removalDr. Craig and his staff utilize the revolutionary new Cheveux Laser Hair Removal System, which is FDA-approved for the permanent reduction of unwanted hair. The Cheveux Laser Hair Removal System is considered the “Gold Standard” in laser hair removal technology, utilizing a 810 nm diode wavelength, which has been shown to be safe and effective for all skin types, providing consistent, and reliable clinical results.

The Cheveux’s specialized laser wavelength targets the melanin in hair follicles, heating them and selectively destroying these follicles while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. This laser also features an Integrated Constant Cooling Sapphire Tip, which keeps the skin cool and protected while hair follicles are heated up.

For hairs that are in the active phase of growth (referred to as anagen), the laser will destroy the hair’s ability to re-grow. Since not all the hairs are in this phase at the same time, multiple treatments need to be repeated at strategically-timed intervals over the course of the hair growth cycles in order to eliminate them.

How many treatments are needed?

While the first generations of laser hair removal machines required as many as 12 visits to see results, this new technology allows most patients to be mostly hair-free in as little as 5-6 sessions! Our packages include a 7th treatment, if needed.
