Featured Image

Have you ever wished you could permanently remove hair from specific areas of your body? Imagine the time and money saved if you were able to throw away your razors and the tedious act of frequent shaving. Men and women love the benefits of smooth, hairless skin on various parts of their bodies without the irritation and discomfort of shaving and waxing. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to permanently rid your body of hair on areas including the face, bikini area, back, arms, legs, chest, and underarms.

At Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia, PA, we offer long-lasting solutions to unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is a very effective treatment for people who want the clean look of hair-free skin on their most prominently displayed areas. Our skilled staff uses a variety of lasers to eliminate hair and leave the skin feeling smoother than ever. Laser hair removal also lasts longer than more traditional methods like shaving and waxing. Body+Beauty Lab is thrilled to perform this popular service, so contact a member of our team today to schedule your hair removal consultation.

Is everyone a candidate for laser hair removal?

Since laser hair removal is a safe and effective process, it is suitable for most adults. During your private consultation with one of our talented team members at Body+Beauty Lab, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and desires for laser hair removal. This allows us to better understand your needs and determine the right course for treatment.

Part of the process of determining good potential candidates for laser hair removal is based on a person's skin type. Until recently, the vast majority of laser treatments, laser hair removal included, were deemed best for lighter skin. Older laser technology had a tendency to damage darker skin, so some patients were not a good fit for laser hair removal. Body+Beauty Lab has recently added the Nordlys™ laser by Candela to their practice alongside the elos Plus® device. This array of lasers allows for all skin types on the Fitzpatrick skin type scale to be treated.

Good candidates for laser hair removal are those who:

  • Would like to reduce hair on their face or body
  • Want to stop shaving, waxing, or bleaching unwanted hair
  • Are in good physical health
  • Have realistic expectations about laser hair removal

Common body areas for laser hair removal

Legs and bikini area

These areas are a very common treatment area for laser hair removal, especially during the summer months when shaving your legs can become a daily routine in order to don a bathing suit, shorts, or shorter dresses. However, shaving can leave bumps, cuts, and residual irritation on hard-to-reach areas.

Arms and underarm area

For patients with dark hair on their arms, it can be embarrassing to wear some items of clothing. For men and women with unusually thick and dark arm hair, laser hair removal is a real solution. Repeated shaving of the underarms makes the area more prone to ingrown hairs, cysts, and razor burn. After the laser has destroyed the hair follicles, the pores in the skin close and smooth sexy skin remains. Imagine no more shaving, waxing, ingrown hairs, or razor burn on your underarms.

Back and chest

For Philadelphia-area men that prefer a smooth, hairless, or thinned-out chest and back area, laser hair removal is a fast and effective customized service. Say goodbye to shaving or waxing your back and chest hair and enjoy taking off your shirt to reveal smooth, hair-free skin.

Face

Fuzz on the face is challenging to hide and is always on display. Your face is front and center, and no one wants the focus to be on the dark hair on your upper lip, cheeks, and sideburns. That unappealing fuzz can become a self-confidence killer. Laser hair removal can zap away unwanted hair so no one will know it was ever there.

Most patients will need 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks for optimal results. Your sessions are spread out to give the treated areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant phase to reach the phase of active growth so the laser can effectively eliminate them.
