Laser hair removal is exactly what it sounds like. Using the latest lasers available today, Dr. Sandhu is able to remove hair from your body. But unlike other hair removal services, the results from laser hair removal are permanent.
What’s more, because the lasers can be targeted to treat even extremely small areas, laser hair removal can be used on virtually any part of your body. Dr. Sandhu has experience using it to permanently, dramatically reduce the amount of hair on patients’:
If you have unwanted hair anywhere on your body, ask Dr. Sandhu if laser hair removal is right for you.
During this treatment, Dr. Sandhu moves a specialized laser over areas where you want hair removed. As it moves, the energy from the laser is absorbed by the active hair follicles in the area. As the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy, it heats up. This heat destroys the hair follicle, preventing it from creating hair in the future.
Though laser hair removal has historically been most effective on people with light skin and dark hair (because the contrast makes it easier for the laser to pick out the hair follicle), Dr. Sandhu makes this treatment available to all of her patients. She uses the Alexandrite laser on lighter-skinned patients while using the Nd:YAG laser on darker-skinned patients. With both lasers available, she’s able to offer laser hair removal to patients of all skin types.
The laser is only able to target active hair follicles. Not all of your follicles are active all of the time. To ensure the vast majority of hair follicles are treated, bringing you a 90% reduction of hair in the area, Dr. Sandhu recommends a series of treatments.
Most patients achieve their desired results with six to nine treatments. Visit Dr. Sandhu at New Image Medical Spa, and she can personalize a treatment program for you based on your hair reduction goals, your skin type, and the areas you want to treat.
