Laser Hair Removal Services in Glens Falls & Saratoga Springs
You may notice unwanted hair most in spring and summer when you wear a bathing suit, shorts or tank tops. Or you may have excess hair in areas such as the face, chest or back. We offer permanent laser hair removal services year-round from almost anywhere you’d like to see smoother skin and reduced appearance of hair without shadows and stubble.
Laser hair removal is popular for both men and women. The treatment can eliminate unwanted body hair from common trouble spots such as the underarms, upper lip, chin, bikini area and back. It is much more comfortable and convenient than shaving, plucking, or waxing. For the best long-term result, a series of 6 treatments every 4-8 weeks is recommended. Depending on the amount and type of hair, some patients require additional treatments. Our practice recently upgraded our Hair Removal system to the Lumenis® Light Sheer Desire so that we may offer the latest, improved technology for our patients. The Light Sheer is more than 75% faster than the average hair reduction session, and also features the unique HIT and ChillTip technologies for greater patient comfort.

Your Permanent Laser Hair Removal Treatment Process
You are asked to shave the area the day before treatment. On the day of treatment, you should avoid applying any lotions, creams, sunscreens, makeup or deodorant to the treatment area. During treatment, one of two hand pieces will be selected. With the XC Hand piece, pulses of light are directed onto the skin, heating and destroying hair follicles without damaging surrounding tissue. Then the ChillTip immediately cools the skin. The High Speed Hand piece is a larger, vacuum assisted hand piece used for treating larger areas, such as the back, torso or legs.
Your hair removal treatment can be done at our Glens Falls office in 5 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated. You should experience minimal discomfort during the procedure; redness or swelling that occurs usually disappears quickly.
At your consultation, we can answer your questions about Laser hair removal or any of the other medical spa and cosmetic surgery procedures we perform in Glens Falls, such as Botox, breast enlargement or tummy tuck.
