Treating unwanted facial and body hair!
At Kansas City Laser and Dermasurgery Center we primarily use the Sciton Profile Nd:YAG 1064nm long-pulse laser to treat unwanted facial and body hair.
Although results are sometimes temporary, the laser is capable of producing permanent hair reduction with a series of four to six treatments. Large areas can be treated safely and rapidly with the Sciton Profile laser. The skin surface is actively cooled during laser treatment enhancing comfort and protection from overheating of the skin surface. Topical anesthetic creams can be used to further improve discomfort associated with treatment. Light colored or white hairs will not be affected by laser treatments. The Gemini™ Laser is used for hair reduction in limited areas ( the “unibrow”).
When combined with waxing and a prescription hair reduction cream known as Vaniqa, our hair reduction treatments can improve suffering from shaving irritation, razor “bumps” (pseudofolliculitis), and the embarrassment that comes from having too much facial and body hair.
Laser hair reduction is performed by our licensed and highly trained estheticians under direct on-site supervision by Dr. McCune. The Sciton Profile Nd:YAG 1064 long pulse laser is one of the safest, most powerful and deeply penetrating hair removal lasers available. It can be safely used in people of all skin colors without major concern for changes in pigment (either darkening or lightening).
