What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an advanced treatment that gets rid of unwanted hair growth. Specifically, it uses light energy to target, disrupt, and deactivate active-growth hair follicles.
When it’s passed across the surface of your skin, the laser device delivers rapid, intense pulses of energy into each follicle, where it’s quickly absorbed by the follicle’s pigments. This disrupts the follicle’s stability, effectively switching it off so it can no longer produce hair.
To remove unwanted hair, Dr. Wallace uses the Elite+™ Aesthetic System by CynoSure®, which is widely considered the fastest, most powerful, and most effective laser hair removal device available.
