Anyone desiring to drastically reduce the hair growth of any area on their body, who has light brown or darker hair in that region (blonde and white hairs can not be treated). Popular areas of treatment are the armpit, bikini, legs, lip/chin and the front of the neck (for men especially who suffer from razor bumps after shaving). Consultations are always free so if you would like to know if you are a candidate for Laser Hair Removal and for exact pricing call us at 425.644.5560 or email us to schedule today. We can get you started for the very first time, or we can touch-up/maintain areas previously treated or treated ineffectively at another location.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
To perform light-based hair removal, a large rectangular window emitting broad-spectrum light is applied to the surface of the skin. The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the hair follicle, which contains a dense, melanin-rich hair shaft and bulb. The dark-colored melanin absorbs the light and rises quickly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside the follicle area. This procedure is repeated every month or two for generally about 6 sessions (can vary by area and patient based factors). Pain is minimized with either ice or the use of a topical numbing agent.
