Laser hair removal is offered at our New York City Dermatology Office. Gentle hair removal that is semi-permanent or permanent is provided for the elimination of unwanted or unwieldy hair on the face or body. Kiss that disposable razor goodbye! No more painful, monthly trips to the electrolysis technician! Effective for almost all skin types our dermatologic laser offers a setting for just about every hair and skin color combination.
This dermatologist-favored laser hair removal system provides safe and effective treatment for the removal of unwanted hair by directing intense beams of light at the hair follicle rendering it temporarily inactive. The injured follicle is now unable to grow hair for an extended period of time.
The number of treatments needed to sustain a hair-free region is dependent on many factors such as hair color, thickness, density and the color of the skin. Because the laser acts on the presence of pigment, some darker skins require the use of a less concentrated light to prevent discoloration of the skin and thus resulting in the need for more consecutive treatments.
Laser hair removal is advantageous for several reasons. Not only does it remove unwanted hair, it also allows you the freedom from bacteria-ridden razors and painful hot waxes. These other, less permanent treatments can cause inflammation of the hair follicle resulting in rashes, redness, in-grown hairs and infection. Unlike shaving, the laser removes the entire hair shaft and leaves a clean and stubble-free finish.
Imagine NEVER having to shave again…See you soon at our NYC Dermatology Office!
