Hair Removal Services
Toss the razor and say good-bye to unwanted hair!
Shaving, depilatory creams and waxing can be harsh, messy, cause in-grown hairs and rashes, and the results are short-lived. Innovative technology offered at New Horizons Center removes hair with no harmful side effects.
Advanced Laser Hair Removal
The Medical Spa at New Horizons Center offers the latest in laser hair removal technology with the new Lightsheer Duet laser hair removal system. The new system allows us to provide the same quality laser hair removal we always have, minus messy prep gel, topical anesthetic, long treatment sessions and pain.
The Lightsheer Duet laser has revolutionized the hair removal process. Prep gel and anesthetic are no longer necessary, shortening the duration of the process. The system’s contact-cooling ChillTip handpiece instantly cools the hair follicle after the laser hits it, reducing the burning sensation that can be painful after the removal of many individual hairs.
How it Works
Laser hair removal is a very safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted hair anywhere on your body. It works by beaming light directly into your hair follicles. This highly concentrated light is absorbed by the hairs’ pigment, essentially wiping away the unwanted hair. Patients who come in for laser hair removal typically come in for 5 to 8 treatments that are spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart, then just a few times each year for maintenance (depending on the area treated).
How to Prepare For Laser Hair Removal
If you’re preparing for laser hair removal, you’ll want to avoid electrolysis, waxing, and plucking the hair for six weeks before your treatment. This will keep your hair roots in place so that the lasers can target them during treatment. Also avoid excessive sun exposure for six weeks prior to reduce the chances of complications and increase effectiveness.If you have unsightly body hair that you’d like to have removed, call us at (847) 674-4646 to schedule your free consultation.
