Understanding Your Treatment
In New Jersey, laser hair removal has become a popular cosmetic procedure for removing unwanted hair from areas such as the underarms, bikini line, back, or face. Laser hair removal is effective because it destroys the hair follicle, thereby inhibiting future growth. During treatment, the laser's light energy is absorbed by pigment in the hair. The heat from the laser damages the hair follicle but leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed. Only follicles in the active growth phase are destroyed.
This procedure has been FDA-approved for permanent hair reduction – meaning that individuals enjoy significant long-term hair reduction over time. In some cases, multiple treatment sessions may produce results that last for several years.
What types of lasers are available?
Newer types of lasers and light sources have made laser hair removal possible for individuals with different skin types and hair colors. The Dermatology Group offers 2 of the most effective and proven lasers available: the GentleLASE® laser and the GentleYAG® laser. GentleLASE is ideal for removing dark, coarse hair on men or women with light or fair skin. Individuals with dark or tanned skin are typically better suited for the GentleYAG laser because it treats a variety of skin tones. One of our board-certified physicians will advise you on the most appropriate mode of treatment.
