At BAXT CosMedical®, we have two different laser hair removal methods: a laser and an intense pulsed light source (IPL). We will work with you to determine which is best for your hair and skin type. We are Board Certified Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons with dozens of years of experience with Laser Hair Removal. Beware of laser clinics and lasers in spas. Beware of packages that make you have a treatment every month. Hair grows at different rates in various areas of the body, and we tailor our treatment protocols as medically indicated, so you don’t end up with extra treatments that you don’t need. Beware of doctors that rent their lasers and only do laser once a month, they are not very experienced. We own all our lasers and lights, and we perform treatments every day.
The concept of removing unwanted hair from various areas on the body, quickly, easily, effectively and with minimal discomfort, has been a dream for many people. Through the use of medical lasers and intense pulsed light, this is no longer a concept, but a reality. Laser or IPL emits light at a wavelength that is targeted at melanin in the hair follicle. Melanin is the material that gives color to hair. It is important not to have a tan while being treated with most lasers. However, the intense pulsed light can be used safely on dark skin.
Results may vary on different patients.
It is important to understand the hair growth cycle to appreciate how this technology works. At any given time, a certain percentage of hairs are in the "resting" phase. The laser will not be effective on these hairs, which is why multiple treatments will be necessary in each area for the maximum result. Subsequent treatments can be done as soon as further hair growth appears. Due to the variation in the number of hairs in the resting phase, certain parts of the body will respond more rapidly and others take much longer to show the effects.
Sometimes there are medical reasons for too much hair growth and the doctor can evaluate and make treatment recommendations, sometimes blood work is required. This can be discussed at the consultation.
It is important that each patient interested in laser hair removal be properly evaluated prior to laser or light treatment for hair removal and we look forward to doing this with you.
