Laser Hair Removal - Dr.Kris Reddy FACS

  1. 1. Laser Hair Removal<br />Dr. Kris Reddy, West Palm Beach Plastic Surgeon, Cares for Laser Hair Removal Patients. Laser Hair Removal is better termed laser hair reduction as the goal is permanent laser hair reduction as some hair will remain in the treated area. <br />
  2. 2. Laser Hair Removal: Process Explained<br />To perform laser hair removal, a laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Different types of laser produce different colors of light. The color of light produced by a particular laser is one of the keys to its effect on hair follicles. The light is emitted by the last is most effectively absorbed frequency by hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time, to eliminate or significantly impede the hair growth. The laser “chilled tip” protects and cools the upper layers of skin before, during, and after each pulse while directing the laser energy to the root. <br />
  3. 3. Laser Hair Removal: Skin Colors Misconception<br />Can all skin colors be treated? Yes, it can. However, the most dark and most light skin in most cases should not be treated as the risk generally exceeds the benefits. However, for most other types of skin, the combination of cooling, laser frequency, and pulse durations allows for safe and effective treatment of Most skin types and colors. <br />
  4. 4. Laser Hair Removal: Permanency Misconception<br />Is it permanent? Yes, with most patient laser hair reduction is permanent. Again, there will be some hair remaining, but in most cases substantially less. It will take a minimum of three treatments, and some “touch up” sessions in the following months. Some patients with stronger hair growth patterns may need additional treatments. <br />
  5. 5. Laser Vein Removal<br />Laser Vein Removal is a godsend for many people. As many people live with visible scars, which make them feel embarrassed to wear shorts, skirts, and swimsuits. In the past, procedures required painful surgery. Laser vein removal provides non-invasive laser pulses that cause unsightly vessels to fade completely or diminish dramatically in a few treatments or less. Lasers deliver concentrated light in a specific wavelength of the spectrum. Each wavelength is absorbed by a different target, such as pigment, blood, or water. The light pulses heat the blood within the leg vein. The heat of the blood affects the vessel lining, which causes the vessel to constrict and eventually fade from view. This laser treatment can also be used on facial veins. <br />
