Laser Hair Removal
If you suffer from unwanted hair, you might find yourself feeling self-conscious and experiencing low self-esteem as a result. It is not uncommon for both men and women to feel discouraged by wanted body and facial hair and to seek more solutions for hair removal. While waxing, shaving, and tweezing are popular methods of hair removal, they don’t offer the long-term solution that laser hair removal does.

How does laser hair removal work?
During a laser hair removal treatment session, a concentrated light, or laser, targets hair follicles with the use of a handheld device. The dark colored pigment in your hair follicles absorbs the light and is destroyed permanently. Although lasers can target several hairs at once, you will likely need repeated sessions in order to target every follicle.
Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?
The good news is that most individuals are candidates for laser hair removal. Our CoolGlide laser is used for all skin tones and types, and for both women and men. The versatile laser is also useful for any area on your body, including your back, bikini area, chest, underarms, legs, and face.
You may not be a candidate for laser hair removal if your hair is white or very blonde. That’s because the laser needs pigments in your hair to absorb it. As long as there is some pigment in your hair, the CoolGlide laser can be effective. It is unusual to have hair with no pigment whatsoever.
If you are unsure whether or not laser hair removal is good for you, or if you have any questions about the treatment session itself, talk to one of our medical professionals for more information.
