Laser Hair Removal

Are you embarrassed by unwanted facial or body hair? You’re not alone—thousands of men and women share your struggle. It’s time to stop putting up with daily shaving, painful tweezing, and the horrors of waxing and embrace the convenient solution of laser hair removal. Consider these benefits:

  • Laser hair removal is permanent. Laser hair treatments eliminate hair that is at a specific stage of growth. About 10 to 25 percent of your hair will respond to a single treatment. Following a session, your new hair will regrow lighter and finer. You will see improvement immediately and full effects after a series of treatments.
  • Appropriate for Adults. Laser hair removal is safe for adult men and women of any age.
  • Eliminates all hair. Laser hair removal doesn’t discriminate. Say goodbye to the hair on your upper lip, chin, side burns, chest, back, legs, and bikini line. Laser treatment will even remove the hair on your ears!
  • No downtime and minimal discomfort.

GentleMAX Laser

At Derick Dermatology, we use the GentleMAX laser. It has two wavelengths, so it is ideally suited for both light and dark skin types. The Alexandrite, a 755nm wavelength laser, targets hair follicles and is typically used on patients with lighter skin. The Nd:YAG laser has a longer 1064nm wavelength to treat darker skin types. It’s important that your dermatologist understands the difference – permanent complications (especially for darker skin) can result from using the wrong type.
