Why should you consider laser hair removal?
There are many reasons to consider laser hair removal:
- You will save time every day that would normally be spent shaving or waxing
- You’ll have smoother legs
- You’ll be able to get rid of unwanted, embarrassing facial hair or back hair
- You won’t cut your skin shaving and increase your risk of infection
- You won’t subject your skin to the harshness of waxing or shaving
What areas of the body can be treated?
Laser hair removal can be used to get rid of unwanted hair on almost any area of the body. It is often used on the face, bikini line, underarms, legs, and back.
How does it work?
Laser hair removal uses pulses of light to disable future hair growth. This means that results aren’t immediate, but new growth is disabled and current hair falls out. Over a series of 3-6 treatments you’ll get permanent results and be free of unwanted body hair. The special tool used at Dr. Russo’s office cools and sooths your skin as it targets hair follicles, so the treatment is comfortable and pain medication and anesthetic is unnecessary.
Are you a good candidate?
The CoolGlide Cutera laser used at Dr. Russo’s office can be used for patients of all skin types whether they have light skin, dark skin, or even tanned skin. It is a good option for both men and women. Some men choose laser hair removal because they want a clean shaven face and are tired of shaving every day. Other men are bothered or embarrassed by chest or back hair. Women often choose laser hair removal to eliminate embarrassing facial hair and keep their legs and bikini area smooth.
