About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an effective way for individuals in Brooklyn to get rid of unwanted hair. Once the sessions are complete, many patients enjoy permanent hair reduction with little need for touch up treatments.
Laser hair removal works by sending pulses of light to the skin to get rid of hair. The light is absorbed by the melanin in the skin where it turns into heat. The heat destroys the hair follicle to prevent it from producing more hair, while leaving nearby skin and tissue untouched. At Khrom Dermatology & Aesthetics, we use the Splendor X, the fastest and most comfortable laser hair removal system available.
Laser hair removal is appropriate for use on nearly any area of the body. Some of the most common areas for women are the: legs, arms, chin, bikini area, and face. Men often seek treatment for the chest or back, back, and hairline shaping.
What to expect with laser hair removal
The Splendor X laser hair removal procedure involves using a small handpiece that blows cold air at the same time as the laser fires. for maximum comfort. The laser is square shaped to eliminate an overlap or hot spots for uniform coverage. The adjustable wavelengths of Splendor X allow the treatment to be customized for the requirements of the individual patient.
We always place 100% protective Goggles over the eyes to protect them from the laser light. Following a proper protocol, most patients will see all of the targeted hair eliminated after 6 sessions, scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. It’s important to remember that every individual is different, so some patients may benefit from additional treatments or touch up sessions down the line.
