Laser Hair Removal
At Advanced Hair Removal & Skin Institute, we specialize in permanent hair removal. We have found utilizing laser hair removal for this process to be highly efficient in permanently disabling hair follicles from producing unwanted hair. Our Certified Medical Electrologist have been performing laser hair removal services since 1999 and use only the most advanced, up-to-date equipment. Our laser is the Crynosure Elite+ Dual Laser, which means it is actually two lasers in one unit. The Elite offers the ability to use either the Alexandrite 755nm or Nd:Yag 1064nm wavelengths.
Our clinicians understand everybody is unique when it comes to hair growth patterns and reasons for removal. For this reason, we offer complimentary consultations in order to specifically answer your questions which center around your individual concerns.
Laser hair removal currently has FDA approval for permanent hair reduction. This method of hair removal involves the use of invisible light energy which is gently pulsed on the skin. The energy is then absorbed by the pigmented hair cells and reacts by creating enough heat to destroy these cells. This process is dependant on the hair having pigment which is light brown or darker. Clients with red, blonde or white hairs will need to receive electrolysis to permanently treat these hairs.
The laser equipment utilized at Advanced Hair Removal & Skin Institute is the Cynosure Elite+. This techonology actually has two lasers within one unit, the Alexandrite 755nm and the Nd:YAG 1064nm wavelengths. With these two lasers we are able to treat any skin type or color. The amount of treatments varies depending upon the area of treatment, the amount of hair, the cause of the hair growth, as well as other factors. Popular areas of treatment are bikini, underarms, legs, back, neck, chest, face, as well as anywhere unwanted hair grows on the body.
The treatments are priced according to a per area per treatment system. Since each client is unique in their needs, prepaid packages are not required but are an option. This way a treatment plan can truly be customized to your individual needs. At the consultation a specific estimated cost will be given in writing. Our prices are known for being the most reasonable in Gainesville since 1996.
Electrolysis is the only form of hair removal the FDA has approved as permanent hair removal. It is permanent for any hair color or skin type. This process is not dependent upon the color of the hair in order to destroy the follicle, so all colors of hair are permanently treated.
Electrolysis involves a series of treatments over a period of time which can range anywhere from a few months to a few years depending on the area of treatment, the amount of hair, its coarseness, the cause of the excess hair and many other factors. Ultimately, once the dermal papilla has been eliminated, the follicle is dead and will not regrow hair. Some of the most popular areas of treatment include upper lip, eyebrows, sideburns, ears, fingers…anywhere hair grows.
