Laser Hair Reduction

Laser hair reduction is achieved by using heat to disable the hair follicle and prevent re-growth. The bulb and bulge of the follicle are the areas believed to be responsible for re-growth; these areas are targeted by the laser. Hair reduction works when there is color, or pigment in the hair.  The laser is attracted to the melanin (dark pigment) in the hair follicle. White or blonde hair does not respond to the laser.  Hormones, diseases, medication, or other factors have an impact on the treatment outcome.

Treatment Intervals
Multiple treatments (6-9 treatments) are required to achieve sufficient reduction in hair growth because each hair goes through 3 growth phases (anagen, catagen, and telogen) and only the hair follicle in the anagen growth phase can be disabled.  Each hair passes through the growth phases independent of the neighboring hairs, so not all hairs will be in the same phase at the same time; thus, multiple treatments are required.  Treatment interval recommendations are a general guideline.  Your provider will customize your treatment intervals.

Facial hair:
6-8 week intervals between treatments. (Facial skin has significantly more hair follicles than the body. This is why you can see results within the first three to four treatments with shorter interval times.)

Body hair: 8-10 week intervals between treatments.

Back or Leg hair:
10-12 week intervals between treatments.

Growth Phases
Anagen - Active Phase
The laser light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft, reaching the bulb and disabling the hair follicle.

Catagen - Transitional Phase
Hair bulge & bulb are beginning to disengage from the hair shaft and treatment is not effective.



Telogen - Resting Phase
Hair bulge and bulb are disengaged from the hair shaft and treatment is not effective.

Laser Vein Removal
Laser vein removal works by delivering a pulse of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body.  Blood flow is redirected to veins deeper below your skin's surface, where they belong.

Our laser treats unsightly veins from all parts of the body.  Small, facial veins ("telangiectasia") and cherry angioms (tiny red dot-like lesions) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication.  Spider veins and larger blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results.  Knotty varicose veins are not a good candidate.  A careful evaluation with your provider will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.

The number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and and size of the vessels being treated.  Usually, a series of 3 treatments are sufficient.  Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment.  However, your final results may not be apparent for several months.  Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, which can also be treated.
