Do you have unwanted hair? Shaving can become tiresome, and constant waxing or threading is often painful and expensive in the long run. To permanently reduce the appearance of unwanted hair, Dr. Frances J Segal and staff offers laser hair removal. Our team of experienced laser professionals can quickly, and in many instances, painlessly remove unwanted hair from any region of the body. The IPL based technology we use is FDA approved for even the darkest skin, which is not possible to treat with other options.
Laser hair removal is the use of a intense pulsed laser targeted at your area of choice in order to remove hair.
Laser hair removal works through the use of the targeted light energy. The highly concentrated light energy targets the pigments in the hair follicles in the treatment area. The pigment in the follicles then absorbs the laser, heats up quickly, and the hair follicle is then destroyed.
Any are of the body can be treated. Some of the possible treatment areas may include, but are not limited to, the face, arms, underarms, legs, bikini, Brazilian, and other places on the body. If you have a certain area you would like to treat, please let us know during your consultation.*
You may be a good candidate for laser hair removal if you are looking for a treatment to help reduce hair growth with longer-lasting results in comparison to shaving, plucking, or waxing. In addition, the treatments are most effective for those with lighter skin and darker hair. This treatment may not be beneficial for you if you have a tattoo on the treatment area or lighter blonde or white hair. If you have any concerns about your eligibility, please let us know during your consultation.*
Yes! this noninvasive treatment is safe when performed by a knowledgeable medical professional.
There are a few possible side effects that may follow after receiving laser hair removal. Some of them may include, but are not limited to, swelling, redness, mild scarring or blisters. If you are concerned about any of the side effects that you are experiencing after getting laser hair removal, then please contact us.*
The destruction of a hair follicle is permanent. However, because hair follicles have a three stage growth cycle, some may be dormant at the time of treatment. As these dormant follicles begin active growth again, you will need a touch-up at some point in the future. This is true of any laser hair removal. We perform laser hair removal at a power setting optimal to remove as much hair as we can each time, while minimizing inherent risks such as burning your skin. Multiple sessions are required to remove all hair in an area, especially since hair is in different stages of growth at any point in time.
When you give up shaving, waxing, threading and other time-consuming, expensive services, you make a smart choice. In the long run, laser hair removal has high satisfaction rates.
