Permanent Hair Reduction

Freedom from unwanted hair

Light-based permanent hair reduction is a lasting solution for dealing with unwanted facial and body hair in just a few simple treatments. This technology uses light to target and destroy the follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue. This light-based technology can only affect hair in its growth phase, so several treatment sessions are recommended to deal with all unwanted hair.

Treatment sessions can take just a few minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas. The treatment is usually comfortable and patients can resume regular daily activities immediately. The most common side effect is a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly with some minor swelling.

Light-based permanent hair reduction is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and for most hair colors. Your dermatologist can determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.

Most patients can expect excellent, long-term results with permanent freedom from unwanted hair.
