What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal requires 6 to 8 visits. This is due to hair growth cycles (only about the 20-30% of hair is growing at any one time). Electrolysis may require 10 - 35 or more visits. Our 810 Diode Laser has long-pulse / short-pulse technology which allows treatments on individuals with sun tans and darker complexions.
Also, now incorporated into our practice is my intense pulsed light (IPL) with Nano pulse technology hair removal device which allows treatment on darker complexions with high success.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL ADVANTAGES
It’s fast! Most areas can be treated in 5 to 10 minutes.
Hair does not need to be grown in (however it can’t be tweezed
or waxed) and every hair is treated each treatment. Visits are
only every 3 to 7 weeks, depending on my evaluation.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL COSTS:
Laser facial hair removal costs are often less expensive than
Electrolysis in the long run.
Legs, arms, backs, abdomen’s can be treated quickly.
Laser usually only takes 6, 7 or 8 visits, whereas Electrolysis
may need 10, 20 or 30 visits or more.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL DISADVANTAGES
Laser hair removal will not kill white, gray, blond or red hair.
Laser hair removal needs a target and the black or brown
pigment in the hair is the target. Although Laser hair removal
may cost less in the long run, a given treatment is more
expensive than ELECTROLYSIS. In 3% to 4% percent of
individuals Laser hair removal does not work and it is not
known why, however, after over 10 years of laser practice,
I have my theories.
Laser hair removal in some cases will turn coarse hairs to
fine fuzz, but not totally kill it. ELECTROLYISIS can finish it off.
That’s why the FDA makes us use the term ‘Permanent Hair
Reduction’. However if not totally killed it is greatly reduced.
