Laser Hair Removal

The removal of unwanted hair has come a long way since the days of waxing, shaving, tweezing, depilatories and electrolysis. Not only are those methods unpleasant, they are also temporary. Our laser hair removal technology is proven to give you smooth, stubble-free skin, forever. Because we stay current with the newest, most advanced technology, laser hair removal in our clinics throughout Palo Alto, Mountain View, Stanford, Seattle and other cities in Northern California and the Seattle metro area is fast, effective, and nearly painless.

The SkinSpirit Approach

At SkinSpirit, we use the LightSheer® DUET™ device for laser hair removal services. This “flinch-free” system is FDA approved for permanent reduction of unwanted hair for all skin types. These laser systems are effective for both women and men, and they’re safe for people of varying skin tones too. As always, we recommend a consultation with one of our 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 include:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Underarms
  • Stomach
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Face (above the lip, sideburns, chin, and eyebrows)

How It Works

Our LightSheer DUET laser uses vacuum-assist technology to bring the targeted hair follicle closer to the treatment head. Using 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 also 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.

Anticipated Results

Our laser hair removal treatment times are up to 75% faster than other hair removal processes, and the results are longer lasting. Treatment is virtually painless and doesn’t require topical anesthetic cream, cooling gel or cooling devices. Additionally, there’s no required downtime after your treatment, so you can get back to your daily activities as soon as you’d like.
