Laser Hair Removal

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Marin and San Francisco

Laser Hair Removal ModelUnwanted hair is a nuisance, no matter where it grows on your body. Fortunately, technological progress has developed a safe, effective way to reduce hair growth. Laser Hair Removal is available to San Francisco Bay Area residents at Plastic Surgery Specialists in Greenbrae.

Laser Hair Removal at our Marin County practice is accomplished with Sciton’s BBL (Broadband Light) hair removal system. This system has the ability to select a treatment setting that uniquely targets the hair follicle without stimulating the cells in the skin, which can cause pigmentation irregularities. It also incorporates a controlled, adjustable and reliable cooling system. These two features, tied to a full range of adjustable fluencies, a rapid repetition rate, and large spot size, allow for quick, safe, and virtually painless Laser Hair Removal treatments.

Removing hair does not make it grow back thicker, darker or quicker. The opposite is usually the case. Laser Hair Removal may cause hair to come back slower and thinner, if it comes back at all. Hair reduction is considered permanent when most of the treated hair does not return for a period of time longer than its usual growth cycle. After a series of treatments, most hair is permanently removed.

Most commonly, Laser Hair Removal is used to reduce hair growth on the face, back, legs, forearm, underarm, and bikini line. However, it can be used to reduce or eliminate the amount of hair on any area of the body. The number of treatments required for optimal long term benefits depends on the area to be treated and individual hair density and hair growth cycles (which can be affected by age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication, and metabolism). As with any procedure, certain people will not be good Laser Hair Removal candidates.
