Where can I use laser hair removal?
Most women remove their unwanted hair by shaving or waxing. However, these methods can become inefficient and time-consuming, forcing you to shave or wax every few days or weeks. Unlike other methods, the type of laser hair removal used at The Rockoff Dermatology Center is permanent, effective and suitable for all skin types. This non-invasive procedure works on any area of the body, including:
- bikini line
How does hair removal work?
Laser hair removal targets the hairs using the contrast in color between them and the skin. In the past, lasers only worked on fair skin with dark hair. However, thanks to recent advances, The Rockoff Dermatology Center’s lasers can help those with any skin or hair type. Laser hair removal is often described as feeling like a rubber band snapping onto the skin and has no downtime or recovery period.
Your dermatologist aims the machine’s laser at the skin in question and slowly moves it over the hair. Hair removal sessions usually last only a few minutes and most patients require several sessions before seeing the expected results.
