Get rid of unwanted facial and body hair! We offer a safe and effective laser hair removal solution for our patients. Common areas treated for hair removal include: legs, arms, back, face, neck, underarms, abdomen and bikini area.
Dr. Gilmer uses the MeDioStar NeXT laser system. MeDioStar has become a synonym for safe depilation, especially for darker skin types. Its high power reaches hair follicles at deeper levels. Even when using higher energy densities, the application always remains delicate, guaranteeing low risk and gentle treatment for our patients. The laser light penetrates the superficial skin layers, and the melanin pigments contained in the hair follicles absorb the energy. This absorption turns the light energy into heat, damaging the surrounding cell layers, which are responsible for hair regrowth.
Patients with light skin and dark hair color will see the best results in the fewest number of treatments. Darker skin may require more treatment sessions. Lighter hair is more difficult to remove and there is currently no reliable technology that will effectively remove grey or blonde hair.
There is almost no downtime from having this procedure and you can resume normal activities immediately after treatment. However, we do recommend that you stay out of the sunlight for a few weeks before and after your treatment period.
The hair removal process can typically take three to five sessions and you might require a touch up session after about 6 months to remove any remaining stray hairs.
