Unwanted hair is not an uncommon problem. Both men and women may find themselves with hair in unwanted, embarrassing places or you may be tired of regularly shaving the same areas over and over, like your legs. You also may be uncomfortable with stray hairs on your back or upper lip. At InShape Medical, we have a permanent solution for unwanted hair: Laser Hair Removal. You can save time and money by no longer shaving, waxing, or be tweezing the same hair follicles over and over again. Laser hair removal is a proven, effective way to reduce hair growth painlessly.
Our system at InShape Medical uses the latest laser technology to effectively and safely remove unwanted hair from your body and face. When activated, the laser gently heats the target area. This heat destroys hair follicles quickly. Since our system targets each hair follicle individually, the area around the hair follicle remains cool and undamaged. When the treatment is completed, hair is unable to regrow from the now damaged follicle.
All laser hair removal is done at our office on an outpatient basis. Most patients are completely comfortable during the treatment session, although some people do request numbing cream. We will have you shave the treatment area 24 hours before your appointment.
Our staff will clean and disinfect the treatment area, and then our doctor will begin the laser hair removal process. Bursts of laser energy will destroy the hair follicles. You might feel some warmth, but this is usually not painful. All in all, four to six treatments will be needed for laser hair removal to be successful. The total number of sessions will depend on your hair color and skin tone.
The procedure to remove your hair with a laser is very safe. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular treatments in the country due to its reasonable cost and safety. While this procedure is available for all skin tones and hair colors, we find that darker hair is much more responsive to this procedure compared to lighter hair. Another factor in determining if laser hair removal is right for you is the health of your skin. Finally, we suggest waiting for treatment if you have recently gone tanning or have been waxed.
Laser hair removal is painless, so there is no need to schedule downtime for recovery. You do not even need to take time off of work. Many patients in the area visit our center during their lunch break and are back working the same day!
