Laser Hair Removal

A beam of light passes through the skin and targets the dark pigment (melanin), heating it in the hair follicle, which is the root of growth. This process destroys the hair and prevents future growth. The trained aestheticians at Avenue Skin Care in Yorkville will check your hair and skin type to ensure that this treatment will work for you.

How Will This Improve My Appearance?

By producing complete hair removal that is permanent.

Will It Hurt?

A topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin first. A laser device is placed next to your skin as well as a fan that streams a thin jet of cool air to offset the heating sensation. A single treatment can take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour depending on how large an area is being treated.

How Will I Look After the Treatment?

There is no downtime. You can return immediately to all your activities. The only caution is to avoid direct sunlight and use sunscreen. Generally, 3 to /8 laser treatments are required over the course of several months in order to achieve the desired result.
