Safely remove unwanted hair from any part of your body without the discomfort of shaving, waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis!
Laser hair removal is a safe, non-invasive way to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body. At Cosmetic Centers of Hawaii, we use the state-of-the-art lasers called Cutera CoolGlide™, along with the Lumenis Lightsheer Duet for larger areas. We find that these lasers are superior to the traditional IPL lasers. In just a few treatment sessions, you can greatly improve the appearance of skin with unwanted hair.
These lasers generate a pulse of intense, concentrated light directed through a small, cooled hand piece that is gently applied to the treatment area. This laser energy passes through the skin and safely destroys the hair follicle without damaging your skin. It can even treat ingrown hairs that have not yet reached the surface of the skin.
Hair removal methods like plucking, waxing, or sugaring cause irritation and may actually stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis can be a tedious process and is a difficult undertaking for some patients. Even a small area like the face can require electrolysis for two or three hours per week for a period of two years. This is because electrolysis must be performed on one hair at a time. Our laser hair removal methods use a wide beam which treats many hairs at once. This makes it possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs, and face.
The unique design of these advanced lasers allows us to customize treatments according to your hair and skin color, hair texture, and location on the body. They even work on people with darker skin tones.
If you are tired of repeated, painful hair removal methods, laser hair removal may be the answer for you.
