Hair Removal Treatments
Premier Dermatology offers laser hair removal in Wellesley to reduce unwanted hair on various parts of the body. Unlike shaving or waxing, the results are considered more permanent since hairs typically will not regrow in treated areas.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Though it cannot completely remove all the hair from your body, it can significantly reduce the amount of hair in areas you wish to treat. This treatment also makes any residual hair finer, lighter, and more manageable.
Laser hair removal devices target pigment in the hair follicle. This creates a controlled thermal injury at the level of the follicle heating and destroying that follicle. For this reason, darker, thicker hair responds the best to this treatment as there is more target for energy absorption of the laser.
Hair follicles go through different growth phases, and not all follicles have hair in them at any given time. For this reason, multiple treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results. We generally recommend treatment every 4 weeks until desired results are achieved.
Not all Laser Hair Removal devices are created equal. At Premier Dermatology, we use a top of the line Laser Hair Removal device called the GentleMax Pro. This device combines both an Alexandrite laser and NdYag laser to allow for safe and optimal treatment of patients of a variety of different skin types.
How Much Does Hair Removal Cost?
The price of laser hair removal depends on the number of treatment areas, size of the treatment area(s), and how many sessions are needed. The cost associated with your procedure will be reviewed with you during your consultation.
