Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal at Coast Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center
Today, laser hair removal is the fastest growing procedure in modern cosmetic dermatology. If you are tired of tweezing, shaving, or waxing, this treatment may be the perfect fit for you.
Dr. Glenn Goldberg and the laser experts at Coast Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center utilize a state-of-the-art diode hair removal laser. The diode laser is a non-invasive and effective approach, which yields permanent hair reduction and long-term hair removal for both men and women. The laser can be used anywhere on the face and body.
The laser eliminates unwanted hair by emitting a beam of light onto the skin that targets the pigment (melanin) within the hair follicle and hair shaft. As the follicles absorb this laser energy, they are disabled and unable to produce new hair. There are three stages of a hair growth cycle, the anagen phase, the catagen phase, and the telogen phase. During the anagen phase, also known as the “growing phase,” the hair is growing and has visible pigment.
Only about 20 percent of body hair is in the actively growing phase at any given time, which is the period when lasers can be used to target these hair follicles. As a result, multiple treatments are required to achieve desired results. Typically four to six laser hair removal treatments are required to attain desired results, to target the hair growth cycles. Periodic maintenance treatments may also be required to maintain results.
Laser hair treatments are:
- Virtually pain-free
- Quick treatments are usually under one hour
- Recovery free
- Effective for all skin types
- Perfect for an areas of the body, including more sensitive areas like the face, neck, and bikini areas
During your consultation, Dr. Glenn Goldberg will discuss your general health status, pre-existing health conditions, and your own goals related to laser hair removal. From this information, Dr. Glenn Goldberg will be able to evaluate your individual needs and to determine if laser hair removal is a good solution for you, and if so, how many treatments may be required for optimal results.
