Laser Hair Removal
Lasertrolysis consists of several laser systems to perform quick and long lasting hair removal. All emit light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle.
About the Treatment
The laser is pulsed, or “turned on”, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of the pulses has been carefully determined so that the energy will be absorbed by the hair follicle and disable it but not long enough that excess heat is transferred to the surrounding skin. The result is safe and effective hair removal.
Lasers are precise instruments that can be adjusted to the exact parameters that will specifically disable the hair follicle. Unlike precision “single-hair” treatments like electrolysis, the laser uses a wide beam which treats many hairs at once. Because of this, large areas like a full man’s back, full legs or arms can be completely hair free within a few hours. You will see immediate results that will last far longer than shaving, tweezing, waxing, chemical depilation, or other temporary treatments. One of the systems – the EpilaserTM ruby laser – was recently cleared by the FDA for permanent hair reduction.
The EpilaserTM was developed from more than 30 years of laser research by physicians at the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Wellman Laboratories, and has been shown through extensive clinical trials at more than 10 laser U.S. and Canadian laser research centers to provide safe and effective hair removal.
The laser parameters were carefully defined by studying the anatomy of the hair follicle and precisely matching the laser light and pulse duration to the follicle size, depth, and location to safely and effectively remove the hair.
