For Hair Removal
Hair growth is a blessing in most cases. In others, it crops up where it is most unwanted—the face (if you are a woman), arms, legs, back, and armpits. Laser hair removal is a safe, non-invasive procedure that gets rid of unwanted hair using the power of targeted laser light energy. There is minimal discomfort and no downtime involved in this procedure.
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S. If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions. Riverchase offers the safest and most advanced laser technology.
At Riverchase Dermatology, we offer laser hair removal for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. They can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorbs the light, which destroys the hair.
Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Our individual consultations are complimentary – we invite you to find out more about our spa services and cosmetic procedures. Our unique laser hair removal packages are customized by our laser specialists for each individual.
During a laser treatment, a beam of light targets the dark, color producing cells (melanocytes) in the hair follicle, reducing its ability to grow hair but leaving the surrounding skin smooth and undamaged. This highly focused procedure affects only individual follicles in the active growth stage to remove unwanted hair. Repeated treatments provide longer lasting and even permanent results.
The heat produced by the laser light does not affect the surrounding skin, leaving these areas untouched. The technical precision of laser light hair removal allows for easy and safe reduction of hair from the face, legs, underarms, and other body areas. The result is smoother skin free of unwanted hair.
