If you tire of the inconvenience, inconsistent results, and discomfort caused by waxing and shaving, laser hair removal may be just what you have been looking for. Shaving cannot remove hair follicles and may encourage faster hair growth. Waxing painfully pulls hair out at the roots, resulting in welts and still failing to prevent regrowth. By contrast, laser hair removal heats hair follicles, destroying the hair and, in most cases, preventing its regrowth.
Laser Hair Removal Process
To remove unwanted and unsightly hair, Dr. Daria Hamrah uses a hand-held device that emits pulses of concentrated laser light. Following your treatment, the treated areas will begin to shed hair, revealing the smooth skin underneath. In instances where hair does come back, it is generally lighter and softer. Repeat procedures are not always required, but can be used to eliminate new hair growth as needed.
Laser hair removal may be slightly uncomfortable for some patients. It may also result in temporary swelling, scabbing, or even a change in skin color. These issues self-correct in a short period of time, but should be brought to Dr. Hamrah
