Laser hair removal is the #1 aesthetic treatment among non-invasive aesthetic procedures. Laser hair removal is based on preferred absorption in the chromophore melanin, which is mainly found in the hair shaft, and in a smaller amount in the skin, depending on the Fitzpatrick skin type. The target is the pigment in the hair follicle which absorbs the heat that destroys the cells lining the hair follicle specifically around the bulb, bulge, and vascular supply.
At Enhanced Aesthetics & Laser Center, we use the Candela GentleYag Pro Laser which is considered the gold standard for laser hair removal in all Fitzpatrick skin types. It is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, outstanding performance, safety and patient satisfaction.
