Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal (LHR) technology has been available since 1997 and has made some incredible advances over the years. We have evaluated many types of lasers to ensure we provide not only the most effective solution, but also one of the most comfortable. Derma Health now offers the LightSheer Desire laser from Lumenis, one of the most effective and versatile lasers available today. LightSheer provides a cooltip technology which makes this procedure virtually pain free. Another exciting feature of this new technology is it makes Laser Hair Removal available for all skin types.

What does Laser Hair Removal treat?

Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive treatment that eliminates unwanted body hair from just about every part of the body.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Our diode laser combines light and heat in a single wave to destroy the hair follicle over time. As the follicle is treated, the hair becomes thinner and thinner until it eventually ceases to grow.

Who is/is not a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

The diode laser used at Derma Health is the only laser hair removal laser on the market that is safe for all skin types, even African, Hispanic, Eastern Indian and more!

  • Laser Hair removal can be administered on just about any part of the body except the eyes. Commonly treated areas are below:

How many treatments of Laser Hair Removal I need?

Is Laser Hair Removal painful?

How long do Laser Hair Removal appointments take?

The time in treatment is dependent on the number and size of the areas being treated. Appointments may take anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes.

How long does Laser Hair Removal last?

Touch up treatments are recommended on an annual basis, and barring any remarkable hormonal changes, the hair will usually not return.

Preparing for your Laser Hair Removal appointment

It is helpful to shave the area prior to treatment. Your aesthetician will then cleanse and cover the area in a gel substance right before treatment begins.

Post treatment for Laser Hair Removal

Some clients may experience mild skin irritation after a laser hair treatment in the form of redness or small bumps. These side effects typically are alleviated after a few hours. You should use sunscreen after treatment.
