The Center for Aesthetics was the first medical practice to offer Laser Hair Removal in our region in 1998, and we continue to be the leading provider of this very popular service. We choose to use only the safest and most effective technologies available, and offer both the GentleLase System and Aerolase. These lasers are highly specific to the hair follicle, destroying the follicle without causing damage to the surrounding skin. During your consultation with our board certified medical providers we will make the appropriate laser recommendation for your condition and skin type. Our laser technicians are fully trained and highly experienced. Our medical providers are always available for consultation during your treatments.
Laser Hair removal requires from 6-10 sessions for optimal reduction in hair growth as the lasers can only treat actively growing hair follicles and the majority of your hair follicles are dormant at any single time. Treatments are comfortable and it is very important that you refrain from any sun to the treated areas for two weeks BEFORE each session as tanned skin will be more reactive to the laser. Treatments take from 15-45 minutes to perform and there is no downtime, although your skin may temporarily be pink and have a small amount of swelling surrounding the follicles which may look like tiny bumps.
