Unwanted dark hair can be irritating and costly to shave, wax and remove over a lifetime. Over the course of six to eight laser hair removal treatment sessions, you will typically see a significant decrease in the volume, texture and growth of your dark hair.
The Center For SmartLipo & Plastic Surgery has more experience in laser aesthetics, including laser hair removal, than any other facility in the Bucks County and Philadelphia area. Our expert physicians use state-of-the-art Cynosure or Candela lasers to safely and effectively reduce unwanted dark hair in patients of all skin tones.
Laser Hair Removal: What to Expect
Laser hair removal treatments are customized according to hair color, texture, and locations on the body and are effective on all skin types including dark-skinned individuals of all ethnic origins. You can be confident that we will provide you with the safe, high-quality laser hair removal treatments you desire.
Laser hair removal can be performed virtually anywhere on the body including the chest, back, abdomen, arms, and underarms as well as the bikini, Brazilian, legs, and face.
Hair Removal Basics
Hair grows in three phases. Because hair grows in different phases, it is important to have multiple laser treatments to effectively remove unwanted hair.
Anagen Phase: the “growing phase” – This is the active phase when hair contains the most amount of melanin. Laser hair removal is only effective on hair in the anagen phase.
Catagen Phase: the “regression phase” – This is when the hair actually shrinks in size and stops growing.
Telogen Phase: the “resting phase”- Is when the old hair is removed from the follicle and new hair begins to grow.
Laser Hair Removal
The Center for SmartSkin is pleased to offer the latest in safe, fast and effective hair removal and reduction.
With this most effective laser hair removal and reduction system, the surface skin is protected and cooled, while the laser targets the hair and gets to the “root” of the problem. So if you are tired of plucking, waxing and all of the other old-fashioned (and unpleasant) ways to control areas of unwanted hair growth, we have the solution. A solution that is permanent and convenient.
Laser hair removal is the new high tech, modern method of reducing unwanted hair on areas such as the face, upper lip, neck, chest, breasts, underarms, back, abdomen, bikini line and legs. A pulsing laser beam is used to heat up the hair follicles enough to destroy them, while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Because lasers can only destroy hair follicles while they are in the growth phase, a series of treatments over a few months are normally required to achieve the desired results. Call us for a consultation and we will assess your individual case, formulating a treatment plan that is best for you.
Laser hair reduction is effective on most skin types, including dark skinned people of some ethnic origins. Side effects are very rare, and if your skin type is susceptible to sensitivity or irritation we will provide you with after care instructions to minimize any discomfort. Most patients can go right back to work with no after effects, even after treating large areas.
We are located in Bucks County, PA and serve the areas of Philadelphia, Newton, Mercer County, New Jersey and more.
