Laser Hair Removal and Electrolysis
Zimmet Vein & Dermatology offers IPL and laser hair removal and electrolysis for patients looking for long-term removal of unwanted body hair. Unwanted hair on the face, neck, back, arms or bikini area can be a source of embarrassment to many people who have genetically inherited the problem or suffer from a hormonal imbalance like PCOS. Though popular, shaving, tweezing and waxing are only short-term solutions to unwanted hair. Laser hair removal and electrolysis can offer patients a long-term reduction in hair.
The laser tip is placed over the skin and a pulse of light is administered. The energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. For localized areas we may apply a topical numbing cream. We always use cooling to reduce discomfort and optimize treatment results. The process is less painful than other treatments, such as electrolysis.
