LASER HAIR REMOVAL

As a master of his craft, Dr. Coville’s
results speak for themselves.

FAREWELL TO UNWANTED HAIR

Unwanted hair can be a nightmare, and removing it is frequently the least favorite part of people’s grooming routines. Getting rid of it can be painful, and until recently, the only choices for removing unwanted hair were topical creams, sharp razors, hot wax, or painful electrolysis.

Today, advanced aesthetic lasers, such as the Cynosure Icon MaxR Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems by Palomar, provide the ultimate hair removal solution. This medical technology exceeds the older, uncomfortable hair removal treatments and delivers longer-lasting results.

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL LIKE?

BENEFITS OF IPL AND LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Lasers and light systems don’t actually remove the hair. Instead, they target melanin in the hair, zapping the follicle and stopping further growth. Hair removal lasers and light systems use low-energy settings to gently disable unwanted hair, thus putting an end to routine shaving or waxing. These treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and refined.

Because these systems scan the skin rather than treating one hair at a time, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, abdomen, shoulders, arms, legs, face, and neck. Best of all, these advanced hair removal treatments are safe, fast, gentle, and effective.

Because laser hair removal targets the pigment in the hair, patients with darker skin should take care of what type of laser hair removal system they choose. Patients with lighter skin and darker hair seem to have the most satisfactory results. Patients with no more melanin in the hair (gray or white) will likely require alternative treatment. Dr. Coville will discuss all your hair removal options during your comprehensive consultation.

The refinement and precision engineering of modern laser hair removal systems means your treatment is as comfortable as it’s ever been. With bigger spot sizes, we can treat even large areas—like the chest, back, or legs—in under an hour, or sometimes even faster. Most patients liken the light pulses of laser energy to a rubber band snapping against the skin, and the Cynosure Icon Max R employs cooling technology to make your treatment even more comfortable.

These modern technologies provide many benefits, including:

Less irritation than that of other hair removal methods
Treating larger areas at once
They combine the speed of shaving with longer-lasting results
They are effective on almost any area of the body where smoother, silkier, hair-free skin is desired
You can save money on the lifetime of hair grooming supplies

WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE?

There is very little downtime with laser hair removal. It’s best to avoid exposure to heat sources (hot showers, hot tubs, saunas, and sunlight) for a few days following your appointment.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

Hair exists in three phases of growth, and the Cynosure Icon MaxR laser can only target hairs in the active growth phase. Because of this, not all the follicles in your treatment area can be affected at once.

As treated hairs begin to thin and shed, new growth will occur as dormant follicles transition into the active phase. As a result, most patients need several treatments to achieve full-coverage hair removal. Cornerstone Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine bundles treatments into packages to make this more affordable, so you get the most convenient treatment option for your unique needs.

Most patients experience shedding follicles after the first treatment with more visible thinning after the 3rd treatment. We require these appointments to be scheduled 3-4 weeks apart for proper healing between sessions.
