Laser hair removal quickly and easily eliminates unwanted hair from all parts of the body, leaving the skin velvety smooth. It’s a safe and effective alternative to shaving, waxing, plucking, and electrolysis treatments and offers successful long-term results.
Dermetics uses the Lightsheer Laser System® – the gold standard in laser hair removal. Its patented Cooltip® makes treatments safe and comfortable by cooling the area as the laser touches the skin. All laser treatments are supervised by our physicians to ensure optimal safety and results.
HOW IT WORKS
During laser hair removal, rays of light energy are directed to hair follicles. The energy targets pigment in the follicle, causing it to lose its ability to grow new hair. The best candidates are those with darker hair – white, grey and red hair is less responsive to the laser energy. Treatment is effective on even the deepest follicles on any part of the body. Areas commonly treated are underarms, face, and the bikini area, as well as larger areas such as legs and backs.
Since only follicles in the active growth phase are targeted, most patients require a series of treatments. Depending on the area being treated, we recommend between four and six sessions one to two months apart for optimal results.
Preparing for your treatment
Patients should avoid sun exposure, self-tanners, waxing or plucking of areas to be treated for a minimum of six weeks prior to treatment. Regular shaving is permitted. On the day of treatment areas should be shaved and free of antiperspirants, creams or cosmetics.
