treatmentsHair Removal Lasers
Laser assisted hair removal is one of the best long-term methods of hair reduction. Dr. Lupton has used a variety of hair removal lasers in the past and chose his current system based on its superior efficacy, safety profile in all skin types, and its lack of pain during treatment. Hair removal may be safely performed on virtually any area of the body. The bikini line, underarms and female facial hair typically respond very well to treatment. For men, the back, chest and ears are common areas for hair removal treatment. Ingrown beard hairs (folliculitis, pseduofolliculitis, razor bumps) also respond very well to laser hair removal with a reduction in hairs and bumps. Most patients will see an improvement after just one treatment, but as with any hair removal system multiple treatments will be necessary for optimal results.How does laser hair removal work?
The Soprano laser uses diode laser technology to deeply penetrate into the dermis where the hair follicles are located. The hair follicles are slowly heated with this system using a patented IN-Motion technology whereby the energy is delivered safely and more uniformly which increases patient comfort and reduces the risk of skipped or missed areas during treatment.How many treatments will I need?
Most patients undergo a series a three to five laser treatments administered at three to four week intervals. Subsequent maintenance treatments may be necessary after the initial series at longer intervals depending upon the body location and type of hair being removed. Most patients will notice a reduction in hairs after the first treatment and will see that re-growing hairs are finer and thinner and slower to grow. Maintenance treatments will always be necessary to keep an area completely devoid of hairs. The exact number and interval range for maintenance varies considerably from patient to patient.
Dr. Lupton has extensive experience and performs all of his own laser hair removal treatments - a significant advantage over most offices. He employs the latest technology and delivers safe, effective, and rapid hair removal treatments. He can safely treat all skin types in his office with minimal to no risk.
