If you’re unhappy or bored with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option for you. Men and women often wish to have hair-free areas on their body. Dr. LaTerra has leading-edge medical laser technology to effectively treat these areas with minimal discomfort and maximum efficacy. Hair can be removed from any area of the body utilizing our Palomar laser. Depending on the area being treatted, it may take several treatments, but hair for the most part will be completely removed.
Sometimes after the hair removal process is complete patients will require one annual treatment to avoid any re-growth. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States. The procedure involves beaming highly concentrated light into hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorb the light and destroys the hair. Lasers are used to remove unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
