At Eastside Dermatology & Skin Care Center, we offer the latest in technology, the most up to date products and a fast and easy laser hair procedure. If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S.
Laser Hair Removal beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigments in the follicles absorb the light destroying the hair. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Precision: Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Speed: Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Predictability: Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions.
Eastside Dermatology is pleased to offer the gold standard in laser hair removal, the Sciton Profile ClearScan™, to patients in Columbus and central Ohio. The Sciton Profile ClearScan™ is a gentle, non-invasive, long-lasting solution for unwanted hair on all body parts and any skin type, including ethnic and dark complexions.
Additionally, the Sciton Profile laser can safely treat sun-tanned skin, thus making it the treatment of choice for active individuals. The Sciton Profile ClearScan™ laser hair removal has been proven to create a permanent reduction in the number of re-growing hairs following each treatment.
Following treatment, patients can typically return to work and resume all regular activities. For more information on laser hair removal, contact Eastside Dermatology in Columbus, Ohio today!
