Laser Hair Reduction in Granite Bay

Getting rid of unwanted hair doesn’t have to be a painful chore anymore

Hair is finicky business. We’ll go to great lengths to keep a full, luxurious mane, yet unwanted body hair has no problem popping up on its own, again and again. If you’ve had it with shaving, waxing, and other painful hair “removal” options, take a look at laser hair reduction.

Why laser hair “reduction”?

Many cosmetic practices bill laser hair removal as a “permanent” solution to hair regrowth, but this is misleading, as laser hair treatments effectively reduce the number of unwanted hairs in a given area. This is why we think it’s important to call laser hair treatments “laser hair reduction“. Understanding that there is no such thing as 100% permanent hair removal will help you manage your expectations going into treatment.

Powerful hair reduction starts with advanced technology

While there is no real permanent solution to hair regrowth, our Clarity Laser by Lutronic can prevent hair from growing back in an area long-term by destroying the hair follicle at its root. Treatment requires no downtime, and within a few short months, unwanted hair will mostly disappear.

Why we use the Clarity Laser at Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery

We’re all about advanced technology, but only if it works in our patients’ favor. The Clarity Laser does. This uber-versatile machine uses dual wavelengths for precise yet thorough treatment and features a large spot size, capable of treating a much larger surface area more effectively with each laser pulse compared to other lasers. Plus, its built-in cooling technology immediately cools the skin after each laser pulse, minimizing trauma to the skin and keeping you comfy!

This not only aids in effective hair reduction but also improves your experience in multiple ways:

  • Treatment is lightening-fast compared to older lasers
  • We can treat a variety of skin types, hair colors, and thicknesses
  • Results are predictable—no surprises
  • We can safely de-hair an area in as little as 3 or 4 treatments
  • It’s way less painful than waxing (you may feel some discomfort but no pain)

Where can I have laser hair reduction performed?

Anywhere there’s unwanted hair, laser hair reduction can be used to greatly reduce or eliminate hair. Most common places patients get laser hair reduction include:

  • Back
  • Chest
  • Shoulders
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Face & neck

Is the Clarity Laser safe for darker skin?

The Clarity uses a long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser, which is generally safer for darker or tanned skin. However, like most hair reduction lasers, the best results are usually seen when the hair pigment is darker than the skin pigment.

The only way to know for sure whether or not any treatment is appropriate for you is to consult with an experienced, licensed medical professional. Contact us now to schedule a consultation.

How many treatments will I need?

Having multiple initial treatments will maximize hair reduction in a specific area, and receiving maintenance treatments will ensure more of your unwanted hair stays gone longer. On average, patients need 3 to 6 treatments, spaced a few weeks apart, to get the results they want.

Are laser hair reduction results permanent?

For optimum results, the hair follicle should be treated during its active growth phase (which occurs every few weeks), but not every follicle in an area of a person’s body is on the same cycle. These different growth cycles are why no hair treatment can permanently remove unwanted hair. While laser hair reduction can permanently remove hair for many patients, it is possible for hair to regrow in an area, mainly due to hormonal changes or aging. The upside is that any hair that does grow back will typically be finer, sparser, and lighter in color.
