Laser Hair Removal
One of our most popular cosmetic treatments at Schweiger Dermatology Group is laser hair removal. Getting rid of unwanted hair without the daily nuisance of shaving, tweezing, threading, waxing or depilatories is a welcome relief to many people. With laser hair removal, about 90% of patients enjoy permanent hair loss after about 3-5 sessions.
The benefits of laser hair removal include:
- Removal of dark, coarse hairs anywhere on the body.
- Skin is left undamaged.
- Quick treatment sessions.
- Less painful than waxing.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting the root of the hair, damaging the hair follicle and disabling its growth. The laser light, which gets absorbed by the hair’s pigment, works best on dark colored hairs. Laser hair removal feels a bit like a rubber band snapping the skin. Most people find the ouch factor tolerable and well worth the results.
The Best Laser for Laser Hair Removal
At Schweiger Dermatology Group, we use the best wavelength to target your specific skin tone and type. Our cosmetic dermatologists prefer the 1064 Nd:YAG laser for the best hair removal results on darker skin types, which can be a trickier skin tone to treat. Our offices use best-in-class lasers to treat all skin types.
