Unwanted hair is a common concern for both men and women. Hair that appears in unwanted places is time-consuming to remove in the traditional ways — shaving, waxing, threading or tweezing. Let’s face it, we all can find better ways to spend our time – and money. Although there are many hair removal options, the development of the latest generation of laser hair removal with the Elite system is a groundbreaking advance in aesthetics. We are proud to offer this service to our patients at Skin Deep MD, where all of our laser hair removal treatments are overseen by our skilled physician, Dr. Melody Denham.
Physician Supervised Laser Hair Removal for Patient Safety and Results
When it comes to hair removal treatments in Boulder, Colorado, at Skin Deep, we go above and beyond in patient care. Under the supervision of Dr. Denham, we offer a treatment to reduce the quantity of unwanted hair on face or body for results that last. With the Elite laser, the hair follicle is targeted to make it incapable of producing hair.
The beam of light energy emitted from our state-of-the-art device targets specific hair follicles, damaging and killing them without harming the surrounding skin and tissue. We offer the most advanced, effective hair removal options to help you achieve smooth, silky, hair-free skin, with every treatment overseen by a medical doctor to ensure safety and excellent results.
Laser Hair Removal in Boulder: Fast and Effective
At Skin Deep MD, we use the Elite laser to help you be free of unwanted hair. This system has two wavelengths in one device. This allows our aestheticians to switch between wavelengths during a single procedure and select the most appropriate laser for your hair or skin type, providing for a custom hair reduction treatment.
The laser delivers an intense beam of light directed at the darker pigment deep in the hair follicle, killing the follicle so it is unable to grow hair. Our laser hair reduction can be performed on both light and dark skin types as well as tanned skin.
Laser Hair Removal: Free at Last
During your first visit, we will meet with you to answer your questions and concerns. Our practitioners at Skin Deep MD have had extensive training and experience so you can trust us to ensure you are comfortable – and achieve the outcome you envision – smooth, hair-free skin.
To maximize your hair removal outcome, it is important to avoid anything that will affect the root of your hair for six weeks prior to your treatment. This includes tweezing and waxing. Your roots need to be healthy and active for laser hair removal to be effective. Other things to consider include:
- Do not tan four to six weeks prior to treatment. Sunless tanning creams should be avoided as well.
- Eliminate any make-up, creams, lotions or deodorant from your daily routine before your scheduled appointment.
- Shave 24 to 48 hours before treatment so a bit of the hair is visible.
- Use caution with certain medications. We will discuss your medications to ensure you are safe to undergo treatment.
During Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Laser hair removal is non-invasive. Most of our patients do not require an anesthetic, but a topical cream can be used to help reduce any irritation or discomfort during the procedure.
Before your laser hair treatment begins, your specialist will adjust the laser handpiece to suit your skin type and hair color. The hair follicles absorb the laser beam. The heat emitted by the laser will damage the hair follicle and prohibit any future hair growth. During the process, patients report a snapping sensation on the skin that is only mildly uncomfortable.
