If you are tired of traditional hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing and depilatory treatments, which are time consuming, uncomfortable and temporary, Innovation Dermatology is here to help! With laser hair removal, Innovation Dermatology is able to offer safe, effective, and long-term hair removal to help you get rid of that unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. Our advanced laser systems deliver precise and controlled pulses of energy beneath the surface of the skin, that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) of the hair. The light-energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs, thereby inhibiting or delaying future hair growth. Our technology delivers consistent results for our patients, eliminating unwanted hair follicles. Not all laser hair removal systems are created equal. More effective technology means fewer treatments are necessary with superior results.
Some patients require multiple treatments before the hair follicles are destroyed. On average, it takes between 5 and 8 treatments to stop new hair growth. These sessions are spaced between 3 and 4 weeks apart.
It can be used on most areas of the body and is effective for both men and women.
Benefits of Hair Removal:
Laser hair removal is safe, effective, and comfortable. The laser application has a slight sting, but thanks to the cooling device, cold air minimizes the discomfort. Sessions may last from 15 minutes up to an hour, depending on the area being treated. Patients may resume normal activity immediately after treatment. We recommend avoiding sun exposure for a few days following laser treatment.
