Be free of unwanted hair!

Laser Hair Removal by Dr. Patricia Westmoreland

Light-based hair reduction (or intense pulsed light therapy) offers relief from the constant need to shave or wax unwanted or embarrassing hair.  This treatment permanently minimizes hair growth and gives you the confidence that comes with clear, smooth skin.

Permanent hair reduction is ideal for…

  • Face (except around the eyes)
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Bikini Area
  • Chest

Permanent hair reduction works on all skin types – from very light to very dark – and on most hair colors.  It’s fast, easy and comfortable; comes with no downtime; is practically risk-free and painless; and provides excellent long-term results!  Ask your provider if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

What to Expect

Permanent hair reduction uses FDA-approved light-based technology to target and destroy cells responsible for hair growth – without harming surrounding skin.  Most people feel a slight, momentary “snap” at the site during the procedure and resume regular activities right away.

Treatments take just minutes for small areas and about an hour for larger areas.  Typically, 6 to 8 treatments are recommended for best results.

This technology affects only hair in active phases of growth, so several treatments are needed to handle all of your unwanted hair.  You do not need to let hair grow out between sessions.  After treatment, many people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensations.  Minor swelling may occur immediately afterward that can last 2 to 24 hours.  Your provider will discuss other possible side effects and post-treatment care with you.  Please note a consultation is required prior to having the procedure performed.
