Hair Removal

Removing body hair can take a lot of time out of your daily life. Traditional ways for hair removal like shaving, waxing, and plucking, can be time-consuming and expensive methods of removing your unwanted body hair. Some of these methods can even cause bumps, in-grown hairs, or acne-like breakouts. Nowadays, laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular for patients who wish to get rid of unwanted body hair. Dr. Krathen offers laser hair removal at Essential Dermatology. He can create a personalized treatment for you to get the best results possible.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

For effective removal, lasers are used to treat any unwanted hair on the body. This procedure should be performed by a licensed dermatologist such as Dr. Krathen. The laser uses highly intense light rays that focus on individual hair follicles which causes the pigment to absorb the light. This destroys the hair follicles. This treatment is well-tolerated by patients. Most patients need six treatments spaced about six weeks apart to get the best results. Dr. Krathen will create your unique treatment plan depending on your type of hair, amount of hair, and desired results.
