Unwanted Hair

Excess unwanted hair is a common condition in both men and women. It can develop in many locations, including the upper lip, chin, bikini area, chest, and back. Laser hair removal is an effective long-term solution for many patients. At Northwest Skin Specialists, our providers use the Lumenis LightSheer laser platform. This diode laser emits light to target the pigment in the hair bulb under the surface of the skin and results in the destruction of that hair. This laser is globally recognized to be the gold standard in laser hair removal technology – delivering safe, fast, and effective permanent hair removal. Our highly trained cosmetic nurses and master aestheticians administer this treatment under medical supervision. Multiple treatments are necessary and are usually spaced several weeks apart.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal (LHR) is an efficacious, noninvasive, long-term solution to unwanted hair. The laser emits light to target the pigment in the hair bulb under the surface of the skin, which results in the destruction of a growing hair and subsequent loss of that hair. The treatment of darker hairs on lighter skin is ideal for LHR. Multiple treatments are necessary and are usually spaced a few weeks apart. At Northwest Skin Specialists, our providers use the Lumenis® LightSheer laser platform. This diode laser is globally recognized to be the gold standard in laser hair removal technology—delivering safe, fast, and effective permanent hair removal with limited downtime. Our highly trained cosmetic nurses and master aestheticians administer laser hair removal treatments under medical supervision.
