During treatment laser energy is used to injure the melanin within the hair follicle which is responsible for hair growth. The laser creates an injury to the targeted part of the hair follicle, which results in an overall reduction of hair growth.
Laser hair removal is most effective while hair is in its growth stage, otherwise referred to as the Anagen phase of hair growth. This is because during this phase, melanin production within the hair follicle is at its most abundant.
We offer laser hair removal in NYC for both men and women on a variety of areas of the body such as arms and legs, underarms and full bikini, back, as well as lips, chin and sideburns. Depending on the area, thickness of hair and color of skin, patients will require about four to six treatments.
Laser hair removal is effective at eliminating up to 80% of hair growth and is an ideal way to minimize the amount of time one needs to maintain a hairless, irritation-free state, as well as “shave” time off your daily grooming regimen.
We offer laser hair removal on two different types of lasers, the Apogee 755 and the Nd Yag 1064. The Apogee is suitable for Fitzpatrick skin types I-III, while the Nd Yag is safe for use on Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV.
Candidates ideal for laser hair treatment with the Aura 532 laser are patients with dark hair and light complexions. Patients with darker skin types have more melanin in their skin, and should be treated with the Nd Yag 1064, for laser hair removal. Patients with white or light blonde hair are not ideally suited for this treatment because the hair is not dark enough to target effectively with the laser.
It is also important to note that laser hair removal cannot be performed on skin exposed to the sun or tanning beds, as this may damage the pigment in the skin. Instead it is best to undergo treatment during a period of time when you will be minimally exposed to UVA/UVB rays.
