Shaving, waxing, and other hair removal treatments provide temporary relief from unwanted hair. Often only lasting a few days, they require more work and money than they are worth. Laser hair removal offers near-permanent results in 4-6 sessions. Preparation for your hair removal treatment is minimal and easy to follow.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal does not necessarily remove the hair. Instead, it targets the melanin in the hair with light energy. The light converts to heat, disabling the unwanted hair. Since it targets melanin, laser hair removal can only disable follicles in the active growth stage, meaning you will need multiple treatments to “remove” all hair.
At Cornerstone Plastic Surgery, we use the Cynosure Icon MaxR Laser and Intense Pulsed Light Systems by Palomar. These systems allow faster, more efficient hair removal for all skin types and tones.
