Regular hair reduction techniques such as shaving, waxing, tweezing and depilatories are time consuming with diminutive results. Until recently, the only real method for hair reduction was electrolysis, which can be slow and painful. Over the last few decades lasers have proven to be effective in providing fast and long-lasting hair reduction.+
Laser Hair Removal is used to permanently reduce unwanted hair growth and can be used on most areas of the body:
Chin and upper neck
Tops of Feet
Upper/lower arms, under arms and hands
Back, chest and stomach
Nose, ears and eyebrows
ManhattanSkin and Laser Treatment Center offers state-of-the-art hair reduction technology, even for darker skin types. Specific wavelengths of laser light or intense pulsed light are used to destroy hair roots. It is faster than electrolysis and has fewer complications than other methods. Some hair reduction occurs after the very first treatment, but maximum hair loss may not be seen for several weeks and after several treatments. Most patients will require multiple treatments for optimal results. The patients easiest to treat have light skin and dark hair. Patients with dark skin and lighter sparser hair may require more treatments. The average number of treatments can vary anywhere from four to six treatments (sometimes more) and will vary from patient to patient. The treatments are usually scheduled every 4 to 6 weeks for best results.
At Manhattan Skin and Laser Treatment Center we recommend a thorough consultation with our experienced laser hair removal technician to determine your specific laser hair removal treatment plan.
