LASER HAIR REMOVAL
A Permanent Solution to Unwanted Hair with the Most Effective Treatments in Pittsburgh, PA
If you are fed up with costly non-permanent, painful hair removal solutions like plucking, shaving, and waxing that can still leave you with embarrassing hairs on your neck, chin, or upper lip or unsightly razor burn anywhere on the body, it’s time you considered laser hair removal.
Dr. Roxana Barad is a renowned cosmetic doctor with more than 20 years of experience in the field. Committed to using the latest science-based technologies to help patients make the most of their appearance, she offers the most effective laser hair removal treatments in Pittsburgh, PA to treat all skin tones and hair types.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by using specific wavelengths of light energy that are absorbed in the hair to destroy it and also to damage hair follicles, thereby destroying hairs at the root while preserving the surrounding skin. Results appear after the first treatment with continued benefits visible with each additional treatment. Laser treated skin is rendered extremely smooth, unlike the roughness of stubble after shaving or even waxing.
Patients feel that the treatment is comfortable, however, some areas are more sensitive, such as the bikini area. Patients describe the treatment as feeling as if a rubber band is snapping their skin. Most patients don’t require any numbing or anesthetics.
Ultimately, laser hair removal success depends on an individual’s unique skin and hair traits, the quality of the laser technology being used and, very importantly, the skill of the person administering the treatment. The laser beam is attracted to the hair follicle melanin (dark pigment in the hair). Since melanin is also present in skin, laser hair removal is more complex for tanned or darker skin people. Blonde, red and grey hairs are more difficult to treat simply because there is less pigment in these hair colors.
Why Choose Laser Hair Removal at Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center?
Our state-of-the-art Clarity II™ dual wavelength laser device can treat most hair colors. We also have an additional unique technology, called SkinTel, which allows us to identify the activity of melanin in the skin and adjust energies to safely treat all skin colors. SkinTel measures the melanin content in the skin and then offers the technician the parameters that are safe for each individual.
Additionally, we now offer the most powerful hair removal system available today, Clarity II™ from Lutronic, which has adjustable laser wavelengths for maximum hair removal results. Clarity II™ removes unwanted hair rapidly but is gentle on your skin, no matter what your skin or hair type.
Clarity II’s combination of two wavelengths (Alexandrite 755 and YAG 1064 lasers) allows for greater efficacy and safety of hair removal compared to other systems. This ensures that you receive the best laser hair removal treatment for outstanding results.
Benefits of Our Laser Hair Removal Systems
Work on a Variety of Skin Tones
Our treatments are designed with adjustability in mind and offer unparalleled control so that fewer patients are excluded from achieving their desired results—all without sacrificing safety or quality care. You no longer have to worry about whether your type of skin tone can handle this treatment because our treatments are safe and effective for everyone.
Since older lasers do not cool the skin after each pulse, they were often very uncomfortable and posed the risk of skin damage. Clarity II™ has a unique built-in cryogenic spray that instantly cools the treated skin much more effectively than traditional air or ice cooling. This new cryogen technology reduces discomfort to make treatments with us the most comfortable hair removal treatments available in Pittsburgh.
Faster Treatments Times
Clarity II™ technology allows us to treat much more rapidly and comfortably, even with treatments of large body areas. With this speed and efficacy, treating multiple areas on the same day is very tolerable.
Fewer Treatments Required
One of the major benefits you’ll see with our Clarity II™ system is complete hair removal more quickly than with older technologies. The number of treatments required is reduced, saving you time and money.
Are There Any Risks?
Side-effects are minimal but typically include mild redness or swelling of the tissue around the hair follicles in the treated areas for several hours after treatment. You may notice a slight smell during the treatment, as this is caused by the laser destruction of the hairs. This is normal and expected.
