Laser Hair Removal
Cosmetic Rejuvenation Center offers laser hair removal treatments to reduce and remove unwanted hair by destroying the hair follicle through the use of the LightSheer™ diode laser.
The LightSheer™ Diode Laser was the first laser to be cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for permanent hair reduction. Permanent hair reduction is defined by the FDA as 85% or greater hair reduction.

How Laser Hair Removal works
The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser light and converts the light to heat. The heat, in turn, damages the follicle and alter its ability to re-grow. It is important to treat each follicle during the active cycle for maximum hair reduction.
The laser pulses for just a fraction of a second, heating the hair follicle and impairing its ability to re-grow. The LightSheer Diode has a ChillTip that cools before during and after each laser pulse to protect your skin and make treatments more comfortable.
Treatments will be performed in a series ranging from four to six weeks apart. The number of treatments required, varies from individual to individual, but most patients will need a minimum of six treatments to achieve desired results. Compliance in treatment schedule and at home post procedure care, plays the most important role in the long term effects of the laser hair removal treatments.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The best way to answer this is to have a consultation. Patients with a lighter skin tone and dark coarse hair are the best candidates and receive better results. For those patients with darker skin, we have the Candela GentleYag laser, which is a longer pulsed laser. The Nd:YAG laser is a great solution for patients with a darker skin tone and those who struggle with pseudofolliculitis barbe (ingrown hairs).
Laser hair removal treatments CAN NOT be performed on skin that is tanned, or has been altered by tanning lotions, tanning beds or the sun.
