Laser Hair & Tattoo Removal

Laser hair removal is safer, faster, and a more effective procedure to eliminate unwanted hair than electrolysis, waxing, or tweezing. The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis. This means that the laser selectively heats the area that causes hair growth (the follicle), with little or no damage to the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal works on individual hair follicles during their growth cycle to deliver consistent, lasting results regardless of skin color or body area.

Lasers can also be used to selectively target the pigment of tattoos without damaging the surrounding skin. The energy produced by the laser causes the tattoo pigment to fragment into smaller particles that are then removed by the body’s immune system. After careful consultation with Dr. Kaufman, the right energy level can be chosen to optimize your results.
