At Aura Skin Spa, men and women in the area of San Francisco, California are excited to learn about the ability to permanently treat unwanted hair with laser hair removal. While shaving, waxing, tweezing, and depilatory creams are effective ways of removing hair, they can be time consuming. Instead of dealing with unwanted hair each and every day, patients often visit our dermatologist, Dr. Anthony Waechter, to learn about laser hair removal as an alternative.
What is laser hair removal?
While other methods of hair removal are effective at temporarily addressing unwanted hair, they are never permanent. Instead, patients can work with a dermatologist to permanently remove this hair through laser treatment sessions. The laser light penetrates deep into the skin to damage the hair follicles in the treatment area. This is done over several treatment sessions, as the laser can only impact hair in the active growth phase. With each procedure, patients will notice a dramatic reduction in the hair present. With continued treatments, patients can target all the follicles in the area and enjoy hair-free skin for life!
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
The team of Aura Skin Spa evaluate patients during a consultation appointment to determine if an individual is a proper candidate for treatment. They also take this time to answer questions from patients who are interested in laser hair removal. The staff also discusses the benefits of laser treatment, which include:
- Safe and effective removal of hair
- Use anywhere on the face and body
- Permanent removal of unwanted hair
- Comfortable treatment
- Convenient and fast appointments
Can patients with darker skin undergo laser hair removal?
When laser hair removal services were first introduced into the field, the best candidates for treatment were those with light skin and dark hair. However, continued improvement in laser technology allows patients of all skin colors and hair colors to obtain treatment with effective results.
