Laser Hair RemovalLaser hair removal has become a very popular way to provide long-term reduction of hair in such areas as:
- Upper Lip
- Bikini Line
Laser treatment is generally safe, and is much faster and more comfortable than traditional methods like electrolysis. Thinning and eliminating hair helps not only one’s appearance but also minimizes problems like ingrown hairs which can follow waxing, shaving, and tweezing. It can also be an extremely effective treatment for pseudofolliculitis barbae (“razor bumps”).
At Lakeshore Dermatology Laser & Medical Spa, we use a variety of lasers for hair reduction. These allow us to obtain good results with both coarse and fine hair, even in people with darker skin tones. A recent study demonstrated that certain lasers are vastly superior to others (especially IPL) for hair removal. Accordingly, we use the most effective laser possible for your skin type. If you have previously tried laser hair removal from a non-dermatologist provider and were dissatisfied with the results, it may have been because an inferior laser was used, or the settings on an otherwise good laser were inadequate. Dr. Van Ittersum has successfully treated many patients who had previously had inadequate treatments from other so-called laser centers and medical spas.
