About Unwanted Hair

Unwanted hair is common. We specialize in treating unwanted hair on the face, such as the upper lip, chin, and cheeks. We commonly treat patients who want to get rid of underarm hair. Some people are genetically predisposed having hair grow on areas of the body where it's usually not noticeable, and certain medications can also trigger hair growth.

Unwanted hair can make you self-conscious about your appearance. There are plenty of options for temporarily getting rid of the hair, but laser or light therapy is the best treatment for long-lasting reduction of unwanted hair.

Laser Hair Reduction

Our primary hair removal system is the Sciton BBL™ BroadBand Light module. We use it for hair removal patients with lighter skin. Our ClearScan YAG™ laser works best for patients with darker skin. Laser hair removal, when performed by experienced medical professional is a safe and effective treatment. It typically requires about 3 sessions for the best result, though darker skinned patients may require more sessions. Risks are few and downtime is minimal.
