What is Body Hair Removal?

Body hair is hardly a “condition” – we all have it to some degree! That being said, body hair removal is one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures for men and women alike. The treatment options for excessive or unwanted body hair have become extremely effective, safe, and nearly permanent as technology has advanced. We say “nearly permanent” only because of hormonal influences on hair follicular growth that may warrant occasional follow-up treatments.

What treatments are available for unwanted body hair?

At Brandish Clinic, we primarily utilize the Lumenis Lightsheer system for highly effective laser body hair removal.

Lumenis Lightsheer

The Lumenis Lightsheer is a special laser hair removal system, designed and fine-tuned to be able to target hair follicles to heat and destroy them – all without harming the surrounding skin and tissues. With a vacuum-assist and a cooling, numbing laser tip, the treatment is nothing short of high-tech. It’s one of the most widely used laser hair removal systems, and for good reason. This device removes hair safely, leaving the skin smooth and clear.

What should I expect with the treatment?

To start, you and Dr. Brandish will develop an individualized treatment plan to determine if laser hair removal would be the best and safest treatment for you.  Before treatment, topical numbing can be applied to reduce any discomfort. At the session, the patient will rest with proper eye protection from the laser. The skin will be prepped and cleaned for treatment. The laser pulses will be applied over the desired treatment area(s) until the session is complete. It’s generally not painful, and only mild discomfort may occur, but the system’s ChillTip technology helps make treatment more comfortable. Sun exposure should be limited after treatment. For a complete description of what to expect for each filler, visit our Lightsheer page.

Body Hair Removal Summary

Although excessive or unwanted body hair does not necessarily require medical attention, body hair removal is an extremely common cosmetic procedure, for both men and women alike.

It not only reduces the excessive hair in unwanted places, but it also helps to leave the treated skin clearer with an improved complexion.
