Unwanted hair on the body, whether on the legs, face, underarms, bikini line, chest or back, can be time-consuming and sometimes painful to get rid of. Shaving and waxing, plucking, or chemical lotions and creams can be painful and irritating and sometimes results in ingrown hairs or razor burn. Dr. Courtry offers effective, long-lasting laser hair removal for patients who want to get rid of unwanted hair for good.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment performed by applying a laser to the targeted treatment area of the skin to remove unwanted hair on any part of the body or face. The hair follicles in the area are damaged by the laser, which weakens and inhibits future hair growth. Over a series of treatments, all of the hair follicles in the area are treated during their growth period, eliminating the hair and leaving the skin completely smooth.
