Getting rid of unwanted hair doesn’t have to be painful or time-consuming thanks to the Lumenis® Lightsheer Quattro laser. At their state-of-the-art office in Brick, New Jersey, the Total Patient Care LLC and Skin First team uses the high-speed Lumenis Lightsheer Duet laser to eliminate unwanted hair. If you’re looking for a permanent alternative to shaving and waxing, call Total Patient Care LLC or book an appointment online today to learn more about laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal uses targeted wavelengths of laser energy to destroy hair follicles and prevent them from producing new hair. Unwanted hair can grow nearly anywhere on your body, but laser hair removal works best on the legs, arms, underarms, face, chest, back, and bikini area, where your hair tends to be darker and thicker.
This non-invasive treatment is a permanent alternative to time-consuming shaving, tweezing, and waxing. In many cases, laser hair removal can permanently reduce unwanted hair growth by as much as 70-80%.
When the Total Patient Care LLC team beams light energy into your skin, they directly target the hair follicles. The pigment in these follicles then absorbs the energy and it converts to heat.
This causes a reaction that destroys the hair follicle, without damaging the surrounding skin, which eliminates the existing hair and prevents new hair from growing.
Traditional laser therapy works best on fair to medium skin tones, particularly those with stark contrasts between their skin and hair (i.e. light skin and dark hair).
Fortunately, the high-speed Lumenis Lightsheer Duet has a variety of customizable settings that effectively remove unwanted hair from any skin tone and type, including those with darker complexions.
How long each treatment takes depends on the area you’re treating. Larger areas, such as the back, can take an hour or more, while smaller areas may take as little as 30 minutes per session.
Depending on your case, it can take 4-8 sessions to permanently reduce your unwanted hair. The team spaces these treatments out by 3-6 weeks to protect your skin.
Compared to waxing and tweezing, laser hair removal is relatively painless. The team applies an anesthetic before the treatment to keep you comfortable throughout your session. Most people describe laser hair removal as feeling like a rubber band snapping against their skin.
Laser hair removal is a quick and painless treatment that delivers lasting results. To schedule an appointment, call Total Patient Care LLC or book a visit online today.
