Unwanted Hair


Unwanted hair often tends to make us feel self-conscious. While shaving is an obvious solution, razor burn and the irritation caused by waxing can be difficult to deal with. This is especially true for people with extra sensitive skin. Having clean, hairless skin shouldn’t come as a compromise to personal comfort. At Illuminate Plastic Surgery, we’re dedicated to facilitating your beauty needs. Our laser hair removal system is made to offer fast hair removal results and long-lasting smoothness.

Annoyed by Unwanted Hair?

The level of unwanted body hair on the body is largely based on individual hormone levels. Androgen is the hormone responsible for the density of body hair following puberty. Your androgen quantity level can make the appearance of hair thicker and more prominent. For those who also suffer from sensitive skin, the appearance of excessive body hair can be a real problem, since it can lead to considerable skin irritation.

Unwanted Hair Removal Options

At Illuminate Plastic Surgery we utilize world-class Cynosure laser hair removal equipment to provide fast and effective results to our clients. The Cynosure laser is a state-of-the-art device for efficient unwanted hair removal. After consulting with our staff regarding which areas you wish to treat, we will do a test area to see how your skin responds to the laser. After it responds appropriately, we will use a special handpiece to apply the laser to eliminate the unwanted hair. Each laser hair removal treatment lasts no more than a few minutes for small areas and roughly 30 minutes for larger areas.

Hair Removal Results

With each treatment session, the reduction of your unwanted hair will become more and more noticeable. You should be aware that it may take several sessions for you to achieve the best possible results. To maximize your treatment outcome, we recommend that you come in to see us for at least four treatments, spaced at two to four weeks apart. During your consultation at Illuminate, we can discuss the right number of treatments you should opt for to achieve the results you are hoping for based on your specific skin issues.
