Simple & Fast Hair Removal
At Renaissance, our team of plastic surgeons and registered nurses use two of the latest, most advanced generations of lasers from Sciton. Both the YAG 1064 and BBL lasers are unmatched for effective and safe removal or reduction of unwanted hair. Scientifically proven and FDA-approved, these lasers work by sending a beam of light to a group of hair follicles that are destroyed at the root without harming your surrounding skin.
Is Hair Removal Right for You?
Almost everyone has unwanted hair on his or her body somewhere, and this advanced option can effectively treat all skin types and most hair colors. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weeks, but none of these last forever – and at Renaissance, Dr. Boschert, Dr. Craig, or Dr. Mills can help.
Laser hair removal or reduction can remove unwanted hair from almost anywhere, including:
- Bikini area
- Upper lip
Most laser hair removal patients require multiple treatments because the procedure is most effective when hair is in the growth stage. Because hair growth occurs in phases, not all follicles will be in this stage at the same time. For optimum results, treatments are recommended every 4-6 weeks, and depending on the size of the treated area, 3-8 sessions may be necessary. During the procedure, patients may experience mild discomfort or a brief tingling sensation, but most laser hair removal patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment with no downtime.
