The Plastic and Cosmetic Laser Surgical Centre – Procedure: Hair Removal
Traditional hair removal techniques like shaving, plucking and waxing are only temporary fixes. Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment inside the hair follicle while inflicting very little damage to the delicate pores and structures of the skin.
Am I a good candidate for hair removal?
If you don’t want to deal with the tedium, frequency, expense and pain of shaving, plucking and waxing, you are a good candidate for laser hair removal.
How does the procedure work?
Laser hair removal treatments are performed in our surgical centre by our experienced medical laser esthetician.
Our Cynosure Elite Laser uses gentle pulses of energy that passes through the skin directly to the hair follicle. Most people experience no side effects although some redness of the skin may occur.
What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal uses reduced light energy levels that are safe for all skin types. Therefore, RF energy hair removal is virtually painless. Most people experience no side effects, although some may exhibit short-term local reddening.
