If you come to see me for laser hair removal, what we'll decide together is what your natural skin type is and which laser hair removal machine is best for your skin type. I have three different laser hair removal machines in my office that I utilize based on your type of skin, the thickness of the skin, and the texture of your skin. One size does not fit all for laser hair removal.

I have a laser that's primarily for patients who have dark skin, who are black or Asian or Hispanic and that's the proper laser for them, as opposed to the other two lasers that I may utilize for patients who have fair skin or who have blond hair or who have white skin. You have to be extremely cautious with laser hair removal not to burn the patient and picking the proper laser hair removal machine is essential for doing just that.

Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular procedures in the United States. The way laser hair removal works is that the laser pulses through the skin and reacts with the melanin in the hair follicle itself, thereby getting rid of the hair by its root or follicle permanently. The ideal way to do laser hair removal is to schedule each visit one month or two months apart, depending on the area of the body treated. You can do laser hair removal on almost any area of the body now. We do it on the face, we do it on the arms, we're doing the legs, and what I found is once you do one area, you love it so much you end up doing the second area and that's why I know how much people love laser hair removal.
