Laser Hair Reduction
We say hair reduction and not hair removal because the mechanism employed to treat unwanted hairs is not actually removing the hair. The laser actually works by emitting a special hot laser light capable of penetrating deep down into the skin. Every time the laser light passes through a hair follicle it travels all the way down to the root of the hair.The heat from the laser light will incapacitate the root and eventually it will not be able to produce hair. At Derm Med Clinic we use a large machine called SHR-OPT. It is a fast machine and can handle large areas of unwanted body hair like the back, chest, legs within a few minutes. Any area on the body can be treated with this device. It is safe to use on all shades of skin color from the lightest to the darkest shade. The cost is also very affordable.
