Laser hair removal is a cosmetic and medical procedure that uses a laser to eradicate unwanted hair growth. A laser is a pulsing, powerful beam of light. At Le Spa Medical Spa Beaverton, a laser beam is sent through the skin into each hair follicle during the laser hair removal process. This powerful beam of light generates tremendous heat, which destroys the hair follicle. This technique stops future hair growth. Laser hair removal is highly successful in those with dark hair and light complexion.
Although laser hair removal is very safe procedure, it is a medical treatment with the potential for serious adverse outcomes if not performed correctly. It is for this reason that laser hair removal should only be performed by well trained health professionals using high quality laser or IPL machines. At Peninsula Dematology all laser hair removal treatments are performed by our highly trained senior dermal clinician.
In a word - no. The term "permanent" can be misleading and many hair removal centres will claim their treatments result in permanent hair removal. In reality laser hair removal is not a permanent process and invariably new hairs will grow back over time. However with an appropriate number of laser treatments, patients will notice a significant and cosmetically acceptable reduction in hair density which may last for long periods.
With modern machines patients can expect a 70-80% reduction in hair after a series of treatments. The remaining hair will often be finer and lighter in colour and therefore be less noticeable.
Laser hair removal at Peninsula Dermatology is exclusively performed using the Cutera excel HR laser. The Cutera excel HR is a state-of-the-art hair removal laser that includes two wavelengths (755nm and 1064nm) with sapphire tip cooling. We consider this new laser to be the best hair removal laser on the market today. For more information on the Cutera excel HR system refer to our Laser section.
Laser hair removal is a procedure for removing unwanted hair like legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and the bikini line are popular treatment areas. Laser hair removal success is influenced by hair color and skin type. The essential premise is that the pigment in the hair should absorb light, not the pigment in the skin. The laser should only affect the hair follicles and not the skin. As a result, contrasting hair and skin colors, such as black hair and light skin, produces the finest results.
