How much time do you spend managing body or facial hair? The number of hours may surprise you. In reality, we spend countless days dealing with problem hair – and the results aren’t always desirable. Between ingrown hairs and the ongoing need for repeat maintenance, shaving, waxing, and plucking leave a lot to be desired. If you have fair skin and dark hair, the process is even more exasperating, with hair seeming to always show through.
Find freedom from hair frustrations. Laser hair removal will destroy a percentage of treated follicles per session, with each new session yielding additional hair removal. There may be more significant upfront costs than with routine hair removal, but patients ultimately save money because they no longer need as many razors, waxing sessions, or other supplies.

Laser Hair Removal vs. IPL
You’re probably used to hearing the term “laser hair removal” when looking for permanent hair reduction. This has become an umbrella term that refers to multiple light-based treatment options. At Radiance Skincare & Laser Medspa, we offer both laser hair removal using the 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser and permanent hair removal with our Rejuvelux Photofacial. IPL treatments treat hair with multiple wavelengths of light, as opposed to the single wavelength a laser emits. This helps the light scatter within the skin, so that large treatment areas like the back or the legs can be treated more quickly.
Depending on your hair removal needs, we may recommend one treatment option over the other. Schedule a consultation to learn which will be ideal!
