Laser Hair Removal (LHR)

Laser hair removal is also known as laser hair reduction. This treatment is one of the most effective non-invasive aesthetic treatments to remove unwanted hair on the face and body.

The Gentlemax YAG laser uses a burst of gentle energy, and therapeutic heat to target the hair follicle at the root. While laser hair removal can be performed on virtually any skin color, the color of the hair is the most important factor. The laser is attracted to the melanin (the dark pigment) in the hair follicle. Thus, darker hair is treated most effectively.

How many sessions will I need?
This comes down to catching the unwanted hair in the growth phase. Since hair is always rotating in and out of this phase, multiple sessions are required to catch as many hairs as possible in the correct phase. We’ve found that 6 to 10 treatments achieve the degree of hair reduction that pleases most patients.
