The Skin Care Clinic offers the latest in Laser Hair Removal technology. Our laser permanently reduces hair safely with minimal downtime. Most patients require 8-10 treatments with each treatment ranging from 15-60 minutes (depending on the area being treated). The treatment sessions are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart for optimal hair reduction. Patient comfort is maximized with a topical numbing cream and cooling technique.

How It Works:

The Syneron is one of the fastest and most effective hair removal systems available. This type of hair removal is long lasting and allows large areas of skin to be treated at the same time. The laser is directed through the skin to the hair follicle, where it stops growth. A gel is used on the surface of the skin for conduction and cooling purposes. Most patient experience minimal discomfort and find the procedure to be very tolerable.

How Long It Lasts:

Intended to be permanent, but people often need to return every 6 months to a year for maintenance.

Pre / Post-treatment Tips:

Patient must shave (NOT wax) 1-2 days prior to each treatment to promote effectiveness. Sun should be avoided before and immediately after each treatment to minimize skinirritation and discoloration.
