Unwanted Hair

How Do I Get Rid of Unwanted Hair?

Many people are bothered by unwanted hair growth in different areas of the body. Increased hair growth often starts during puberty and can increase as we grow older. Shaving, waxing, and tweezing are all effective hair removal techniques, but they are all temporary. And while most of these practices are entirely safe, they can cause side effects like ingrown hairs and hair bumps. There are more permanent and effective alternatives.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

For all genders and ages, laser hair removal targets hair follicles at their roots, and with enough treatments, the hair does not grow back.* Dr. Wechsler uses the state-of-the-art Candela GentleMax® to laser away unwanted hair. A small handpiece directs a beam of powerful light onto the area being treated. The targeted skin cells absorb this light, which deactivates the hair follicle so that it can no longer produce hair in the area. The GentleMax does this without damaging the surrounding skin. You can have your hair removed anywhere on your body, so long as the hair is brown or black.
