Laser Hair Removal

Laser technology makes it possible to reduce the periodic need for painful waxing, shaving, and tweezing areas of undesired hair. With advanced laser hair removal, Dr. Leonard Miller and his professional aesthetics team can remove unwanted hair in virtually any body area with long-lasting results. In fact, the effects can often be permanent.

How does it work?

Laser hair removal can be an ideal procedure for men and women who are looking to reduce undesired hair for a smoother appearance to the skin. This procedure can be performed on an array of skin types and colors, and the results are often extremely long-lasting – potentially permanent. During laser hair removal, a hand-held device will be gently guided over the targeted area. The device emits laser energy that works to destroy the hair at the follicle, reducing the chances of re-growth. A series of laser hair removal treatments may be necessary for the best results. It may take several days for the hair to fall out after the procedure.

Laser hair removal procedures usually take about 15 minutes to an hour to perform, depending on the number and size of the areas being treated. There is usually no downtime necessary after this treatment. You may experience a mild sunburn-like feeling immediately after the procedure; however, topical gels and skin creams can often relieve any discomfort.
