Laser Hair Removal in Mill Valley, CA
Remove unwanted hair long-term
WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair in the face and body for our clients in the Marin area.
By exposing it to pulses of laser light, this procedure destroys the hairs at the follicles to provide long-lasting results.
HOW IT WORKS
At SkinSpirit Mill Valley, we use the LightSheer® DUET™ device for laser hair removal services.
The LightSheer DUET laser uses vacuum-assist technology to bring the targeted hair follicle closer to the treatment head. Through gentle suction, the treatment area is slightly stretched, allowing the laser energy to interact more efficiently with the desired target — melanin, or pigment, in the hair follicle.
The vacuum pulls the hair follicles closer to the surface of the laser, allowing for deeper penetration and a reduced need for laser energy. In fact, LightSheer requires about 60% less energy for effective treatment than other laser devices. The laser energy is transferred directly to the follicle, damaging its ability to regrow.
For the most effective treatment, there are a few guidelines we request our Marin-area laser hair removal clients follow, such as avoiding the sun and tweezing. For more information on what to do before and after laser hair removal, read our blog.
THE SKINSPIRIT EXPERIENCE
The LightSheer® DUET™ device is a “flinch-free” system FDA approved to permanently reduce unwanted hair and are effective for women and men of all skin types. As always, we recommend a consultation with one of our expert practitioners to determine if our laser is right for your needs.
While laser hair removal can be performed on most parts of the body, the most popular treatment areas for our clients in Mill Valley and surrounding Bay Area clinics include:
- Bikini area
- Face (above the lip, sideburns, chin, and eyebrows)
With laser hair removal treatment times up to 75% faster than other hair removal processes, revealing long-lasting, smooth and stubble-free skin, our patients throughout the Marin are loving the results.
Treatment is virtually painless, requiring no topical anesthetic cream, cooling gel or cooling devices. Plus, there’s no downtime, so you can get back to your daily activities as soon as you’d like!
Because hair grows at different cycles, about thirty percent of follicles come to the surface at a time – so you will need between five and six sessions in total to see the most significant results. The number of treatments needed is different for everyone. Our laser hair removal specialists in Mill Valley can provide their recommendations after an assessment and discussion of your goals.
Laser hair removal treatments are typically recommended between four to six weeks apart, depending on the individual, and touch-ups may be needed to maintain results ongoing.
