Laser Hair Removal
Contact our office to schedule your consultation today!
With Silicon Valley Aesthetics’ sophisticated laser technology, unwanted body hair can be reduced by beams of highly concentrated light scanned across an area of body with hair. Pigment within the hair follicles of treated skin absorbs the pulse of emitted light, which may result in inactivation of several follicles in the same area*. Since hair grows in cycles, only the hair follicles that are in the active growth phase may be most affected during any particular treatment session. As such, repeated laser hair treatments may produce more hair reduction as more follicles (in active growth phase) are captured with successive treatments.
Results of laser hair removal may vary from one individual to another based on factors such as hormones, hair type, color of hair, ethnicity, and the specific area being treated. This laser will impair the growth of hair over time, resulting in less hair and finer re-growth.
Am I a candidate?
Our laser hair removal treatments can be used for clients with virtually any skin type and in nearly any area. In general, your hair needs to be pigmented in order for the laser to accurately target it, so not all shades of hair will respond well. Speak with one of our medical professionals today to determine if laser hair removal at Silicon Valley Aesthetics is right for you.
Although there may be some tenderness in the treated area following a treatment session, side effects are rare. Depending on the area that you are treating and how much hair you have, you may need more than one session to achieve your desired results.
