Permanently Reduce Hair with Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is a light based treatment used to permanently reduce hair. Currently we use many different lasers (Prowave and CoolGlide Vantage by Cutera and the Comet and Aurora by Syneron) for hair removal treatments which allow us to safely and effectively treat any type of skin and hair color. Unfortunately, with every hair removal treatment, maintenance is needed because the body naturally over time produces new hair cells. We encourage our patients to have maintenance treatments on a routine basis to treat new growth. For the facial area maintenance is generally recommended every 3-4 months. For the body, some patients only need 1-2 maintenance treatments a year, but can range from 1-4 treatments a year. Some patients find this difficult to commit to. Finally, there is a new at home hair removal system, available for purchase only through physicians, called Silk’n™ that allows patients to manage and enhance their long-term hair removal results on their body. The Silk’n™ is an innovative device that uses Home Pulsed Light™ technology to deliver a safe and effective level of light energy. It can be used in the privacy of your own home and is safe for use on the body, easy to use, portable and cost effective. Contact Advanced Dermatology to set up a consultation to see how you can benefit from the Silk’n™.
