Laser Hair Removal
What is laser hair removal?If you find yourself bothered with unwanted hair, laser assisted hair removal is a technology that provides you with a safe, clinically proven treatment for hair removal.
Lasers used to remove unwanted hair emit a powerful beam of light, which passes safely through the skin and is selectively absorbed by pigment cells in the hair follicles. Heat generated during this absorption process shuts down the cells that are responsible for the growth of hair and after a series of treatments leads to long-term hair removal for most body areas.
SafetyWe were one of the early pioneers in using this technology, and we have offered laser hair removal in our office since 1996. By providing treatments with a combination of several lasers, we are able to work on coarse and finer hair so long as the hair contains pigment and has not turned gray or white. Because our lasers are safe for all skin types and all skin colors, we are able to treat patients belonging to all ethnic groups.
Whether you want to remove unwanted hair for cosmetic reasons to improve your appearance or to remove hair in areas where you are developing bumps, irritation, skin infection, or discoloration, laser hair removal can provide excellent results.
Treatable areasLaser hair removal is safe and effective for any area of the body. Some of the most common treatment areas are:
- Bikini area
Laser hair removal procedureWe use the latest technology to deliver exceptional results, with a comfortable, gentle procedure. Only hairs in the active growth cycle respond to laser treatment, so several sessions are needed to achieve optimal results. Once your treatment plan is complete, you can enjoy silky-smooth skin for life. Rarely, a few (usually very fine) hairs may reappear after some time. A touch up about one or more times a year is usually sufficient to eliminate this problem.

Dear Dr. Weaver,
My name is Tanya Brewer; I originally came to you for acne problems then I started getting laser treatments for my chin hairs. My husband and I were both in the mirror shaving. But now since I have been getting the laser hair removal treatments I can honestly say that I don’t shave anymore and my husband is so excited. He once made a comment that he never thought that he would marry someone who he would have to compete with for razors. He can’t say that now. I don’t have the cysts on my face anymore and now my chin is smooth. I have a few dark blemishes but I am not ashamed to go out in public without make-up now. Before I started with the treatments I would not leave home without make-up on. Thank you so much.
