Today men and women no longer need to be embarrassed by unwanted hair. No longer do they have to be a slave to the razor or suffer the discomfort and side effects of waxing. Hair can now be permanently, safely removed and without pain.

Women love the freedom of no longer having to rid themselves of hair around the bikini and the underarms. Genetic facial growth, or hair growth caused by hormonal changes is no longer a problem.

Men like the relief from hot, itchy hair that tends to grow on their backs and shoulders. Summer activities now may be enjoyed without the burden of unwanted hair.

The process is simple and takes place at four to six week intervals; the average person needing six to eight treatments. The existing hair may be kept short during treatment time. This flexible program is designed to fit the individuals needs and is based on skin color, location for removal, and hair density.

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser Hair Removal uses a visible light laser to gently remove unwanted hair, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing. This advanced technology improves upon the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long-lasting results. Because the laser treats more than one hair at a time, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face. Laser treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier.
Best of all, Laser Hair Removal treatments are a safe, fast, gentle, and effective method for hair removal.
FOR MANY MEN AND WOMEN, UNWANTED HAIR CAN BE EMBARRASSING
Getting rid of unwanted hair can be difficult. Prior to laser technology, the only options for removing unwanted hair were smelly hair removal creams, sharp razors, stinging wax or painful electrolysis needles. This laser light-based advanced approach to beautiful skin provides the ultimate solution. Now, men and women alike will be pleased with the results made possible by our Laser Hair Removal process.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Larger areas may be treated using lasers than with electrolysis, waxing or tweezing. It combines the speed of shaving with the lasting results promised by electrolysis. Laser Hair Removal is effective on almost any area of the body where smoother, younger, hair-free skin is desired.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL BE NEEDED?
The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, your skin type and your hair’s growth cycle. Multiple treatments are needed (average 4 -7) as hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience.

The laser slows the growing capacity of follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Treatment results will vary from patient to patient depending on skin and hair color.
Note: Removing hair does not make it grow back thicker, darker or quicker. The opposite is usually the case. The laser may cause hair to come back slower and thinner.
HOW IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL DIFFERENT FROM ELECTROLYSIS?
Electrolysis is a much slower process. With electrolysis a needle is actually inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time. Once inserted, an electric shock burns the follicle to retard hair growth. Laser Hair Removal uses the cool light of the laser to scan the treatment area and within minutes all of the hairs in the laser’s beam are treated. Most patients who have had both procedures say that Laser Hair Removal is less painful, faster and more convenient.

WHAT ARE THE LASER TREATMENTS LIKE?
The treated area has to be shaved on the day of a laser procedure. Then the area is scanned with the laser. The laser energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. In a fraction of a second, all of the treated hair follicles are disabled. Treatments can last from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the size of the treated area.

FOLLOWING LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT
After your treatment, ice is placed on the treated area and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Dr. Rosinska may recommend a skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type after laser treatments. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
