While DIY methods of hair removal can be effective in the short-term, individuals typically become frustrated with the necessary frequency of repeated maintenance. Shaving often must be done daily, while at-home waxing treatments can be painful – especially for patients with sensitive skin. Plus, in-between these treatment methods, the period of regrowth can irritate the skin, cause ingrown hairs, or leave the skin feeling prickly.
Laser hair removal has many advantages over at-home treatments. The number one benefit of laser hair removal our patients report is that the hair is often permanently eliminated. With our Cynosure Elite+ laser hair removal technology, Dr. Jodie Reinertson can treat men and women with all skin types with effective results. A topical numbing agent can be used during each treatment session to maximize patient comfort. An added advantage to laser hair removal is the ability to target larger areas of the body, such as the back, chest, or legs, that can be difficult or time consuming to treat with at-home methods.
