Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal can be quick and comfortable with Accent On Skin’s GentleLASE hair removal laser by Candela.

Indications

Unwanted hair in areas such as bikini line, underarms, legs, back, arms, upper lip, chin, beard, etc. can be easily controlled.

Location

The GentleLASE laser is located in our Latham office.

Trade Offs

Slight redness or swelling is a normal reaction and usually subsides in one to two days.

Risks

Laser hair removal has been used for many years and has been studied closely to monitor safety.

Some patients experience pigment changes in their skin color. If this occurs, the skin will typically return to normal pigmentation over time. All treatment results are individual.

Recovery

Most patients return to their normal routine immediately following the treatment. On occasion there is minor skin irritation (redness and swelling).

Results

Results vary but generally patients can expect up to a 75-80% reduction in hair growth

Procedure

You and your practitioner will wear safety glasses to protect your eyes during the procedure. Our laser specialist nurses will use a small hand piece that touches your skin to deliver a beam of light. This intense beam of light delivered to the skin is converted to heat. The heat is absorbed by the cells at the base of the hair, leaving the surrounding area unaffected. The heat injures the hair follicle diminishing its ability to grow.

Treatments

Since hair grows in stages, it is necessary to have 3-5 treatments 6-8 weeks apart to treat all hair follicles.
