This technique lifts the deep moveable tissue beneath the skin by anchoring it to non-moveable fibrous tissue resulting in a more natural and youthful appearance.

What Are Laser Hair Removal Treatments Like?

First, the area to be treated is cleansed and the hair is shaved. Without damaging the surrounding tissue, controlled pulses of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the hair follicles. The heat damages or destroys the potential for regrowth. After treatment the area is cleansed and a sunscreen is applied. Large areas such as backs, shoulders, abdomens, and legs can be treated quickly.

Facial areas such as the lip, chin, and beard can be treated in minutes.
