Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal permanently reduces unwanted facial and body hair, allowing you to look and feel your very best without the hassle of shaving or waxing. At Illuminate Plastic Surgery, we offer laser hair removal for all skin types using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).
During IPL, light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissues. Our FDA-cleared, clinically proven technology targets and destroys cells responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding skin. It is a simple approach to permanent hair reduction. Treatments are quick and require little to no downtime.
Light-based hair removal can work for almost everyone, including all skin colors and most hair types. The face, underarms, arms, chest, back, legs and bikini line are a few of the most commonly treated areas. Each laser hair removal treatment lasts just a few minutes for small areas and roughly 30 minutes for larger areas. Most patients will require several treatments to achieve the best results possible.
Following treatment, patients can resume their regular daily activities. While many patients will have no downtime after treatment, some patients who receive laser hair removal may experience a mild sunburn-like sensation (redness) accompanied by minor swelling.
At Illuminate Plastic Surgery we utilize world class Cynosure laser hair removal equipment.
