With laser hair removal, you can say goodbye to shaving, waxing, and messy depilatories forever. At the Skin & Laser Center, Grosse Pointe, we use cutting edge technology to treat individuals of virtually all skin types.
At Ferrara Derm, we use the ultra-modern GENTLE MAX PRO and the CANDELA YAG LASER for laser hair removal. The Gentle Max Pro is a state-of-the-art laser for individuals with light skin and darker hair. It features a dual wavelength system and has a large spot size. The Candela Yag Laser operates at a longer wavelength, allowing us to treat individuals with darker skin, including African-American skin types.
What it treats
Both lasers are able to eliminate or reduce a significant amount of unwanted hair over several treatment sessions. Each treatment reduces an additional portion of remaining hair, catching the individual hairs in their active growth cycle. Over the course of about 6-8 treatments, you will succeed in treating the majority of the hair in its growth phase, and effectively eliminate it.
Results may vary depending on the skin type and hair color, but most patients notice that the treated area is clear of hair within 5 – 10 days. There is typically hair reduction of up to 25% after the first treatment. This will gradually increase as treatments continue, and between 70 – 80% of the hair will be removed on completion of all treatments.
Why Choose Ferrara Derm?
Undergoing hair removal in a dermatology setting such as ours is the optimal choice for several reasons. First and foremost, there is a doctor on the premises who can answer any questions that may arise about hormonal influences on hair growth. We understand the various skin types we treat. Finally, we can apply our unique abilities towards soothing and calming skin that has suffered any temporary after-effects from the laser.
