LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Imagine you could be hair free in all the right places this summer. No more shaving, plucking, waxing — your smooth and sleek physique will be turning heads all summer long.
Splendor X is revolutionary laser hair removal technology with the largest spot size available, so it works faster than any other. It’s the only laser that treats virtually any skin tone safely and effectively.
Great for all Skin Tones
Splendor X is powerful, yet gentle. Unlike older lasers, which can be rough on some skin types, Splendor X combines two wavelengths to treat virtually any skin tone safely and effectively. For the first time, we can customize the blend based on your unique skin type, hair color and thickness. In particular, Latino or African American skin needs a gentle touch from powerful lasers, so Splendor X is the ideal choice.
Unwanted hair can be embarrassing and a hassle to remove. Imagine if you could significantly reduce or eliminate unwanted hair pain free with the newest Lumenis Splendor X. Now you can. Laser hair removal, available now at Prism Dermatology, can safely reduce, with minimal risk, unwanted hair from any part of the face or body. It’s an effective option for most men and women.
About Laser Hair Removal
This noninvasive laser treatment uses gentle beams of light to get rid of hair. The hair’s melanin (the part that gives hair its color) absorbs the light, which turns into heat. The heat damages the follicle (but not the surrounding skin or tissue) and prevents it from producing more hair.
Laser hair removal can treat hair anywhere on the face or body. Women often treat the bikini area, chin, upper lip, and legs. Men can safely eliminate unwanted hair from places such as their chests and backs.
What Is the Treatment Like?
Administered by a licensed technician or physician, a small hand-held laser device used to deliver the light beams is placed on the treatment area. You might experience some mild discomfort during the session-like the feeling of a rubber band snapping against your skin. A topical anesthetic can be applied 60 minutes before your session, if needed, and some people like to briefly apply an ice pack afterwards. During the procedure you’ll wear tinted goggles to protect your eyes from the laser light.
For each treatment area, we typically schedule 3 to 7 sessions about 4 to 5 weeks apart.
Am I A Candidate?
Laser hair removal works when the light beams are absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft and follicle. People with dark hair are considered the best candidates. Blonde, gray, and strawberry-blonde hair may not absorb the laser light. And contrast between the hair and your skin is also important, so people with dark skin may not have enough contrast for the beams to be absorbed by the hair follicle.
Each person responds differently to laser hair removal. Some may require more treatments than others. And sometimes laser hair removal can’t eliminate hair completely. If some hair does grow back, it’s usually thinner and finer than before the treatment.
