Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the most effective and long-lasting solution for eliminating unwanted hair, since it is less painful than other hair removal methods, such as shaving and waxing.

We use the latest technologies for laser hair removal for men and women.

  • Candela Gentle Max Pro

  • Fotona Lasers

This means that the laser technology that we use is optimized for all skin types with customizable wave length settings.

The technology that Century Dermatology uses also carries less risk of allergies and skin rashes. Laser hair removal technology works by using a laser light that is converted to heat to strategically damage the pigment or melanin in the hair follicles. This prevents and delays future hair growth in the areas that are being targeted.

What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?

  • Practitioner will use a small handpiece to deliver an intense but gentle burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin to remove unwanted hair.

How long does a Gentle laser hair removal treatment take?

  • A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated. Both legs can often be treated in as few as 15 minutes, as can an average-sized man’s back.

How many treatments needed?

  • Multiple treatments are required to achieve the full hair removal effect. The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of six to eight weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage.

How do I prepare for a Gentle Hair Removal treatment?

  • For about six weeks prior to treatment, you should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing. On the day of your treatment, skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before your treatment.

What can I expect after treatment?

  • Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, a prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.

Are there side effects?

  • Permanent side effects are rare and may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days. Your practitioner will have more information about potential side effects.
