Laser Hair Reduction
State of the art, permanent hair reduction for men and women can be achieved with a flash of light. All areas of the body can be treated including underarms, bikinis, legs, arms, back, chest, neck and facial hair.
At CCSD we have multiple devices to ensure your hair removal treatment is the perfect one for your type of hair and shade of skin. The GentleLase Alexandrite and Gemini Nd:YAG provide great results in 5-7 treatments. Dr. Jacob and her associates have performed thousands of hair removal procedures on men and women since 1999. Let us save you 40 hours a year by not having to shave!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Does the laser treat blonde hairs?
A: Unfortunately no laser can effectively treat blond hairs. Laser hair removal requires color in the hair shaft to absorb the light energy. If you are interested in receiving treatment to the axilla or underarm area, we can recommend our miraSmooth™ microwave technology (see below).
Q: Will the treatment hurt?
A: Our medical staff will prescribe a pre-treatment anesthetic cream to make your experiences as comfortable as possible.
MiraSmooth™ was launched in August 2015 following FDA approval for hair reduction. Miramar Lab’s proprietary miraWave® technology – use of controlled microwave energy – is the foundation of the miraDry® system. CCSD has been using miraDry® since 2011 to treat bothersome underarm sweat. Unlike typical laser hair reduction technology, microwave energy doesn’t require a chromophore to be effective and therefore can be used on hair of all colors, including blonde and grey. Performed under local anesthesia by our Physican Assistant, a serious of two treatments spaced three months apart is recommended for optimum results. This treatment is also not limited by an individual’s skin color and has the added benefits of sweat and odor reduction! The permanent reduction of hair of all colors using miraWave® is a significant technological advancement in the hair removal industry.
