Laser Hair Removal and Wrinkle Treatment

One of the most sophisticated and effective methods of removing unwanted body hair and unsightly wrinkles is laser treatment.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove hair around your body.

During the procedure, a laser will emit a light that is absorbed by the melanin in your hair. The light energy is converted into heat, which will inhibit and delay future hair growth.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair in areas such as the face, leg, back, chin, arm, underarm, bikini, etc.

A few of the main benefits of laser hair removal include:

What Is Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing effectively reduces facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as acne scars and blemishes.

Laser resurfacing focuses pulsating beams of light on affected areas, accurately removing skin layer by layer.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Resurfacing?

You may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing if you have wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or on your forehead. Laser resurfacing may also be suitable for you if you have shallow scars due to acne.

If you currently have a significant amount of acne or you have very dark skin, you may not be a candidate for laser resurfacing.
