Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal
For some people, unwanted hair can be a real problem. You may feel embarrassed, uncomfortable, or just bothered by the sight of certain facial or body hair, and the idea of eliminating it altogether may seem too good to be true. Shaving or tweezing can be irritating, painful, and simply not as effective as you would like. Dr. Rebecca Morton of Northwest Medi Spa offers an excellent solution for ridding unwanted hair from the body once and for all.

We use the latest laser hair removal systems within our state-of-the-art Bend medical spa for the safe and effective long-term elimination of pesky, unwanted hair. New advances in laser hair removal technology have also made it possible to treat virtually any skin or hair type.

When you choose to undergo laser hair removal treatment in our Bend spa, we will provide a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Before beginning the treatment process, we will conduct a consultation to make sure we are clear about your goals and expectations. We also want to determine whether you are a good candidate for the treatment.

At Northwest Medi Spa, we utilize two types of lasers for hair removal: the Candela® GentleLase Laser Therapy and the Candela® GentleYAG Laser Therapy. During the procedure, Dr. Nonweiler or another experienced technician will apply the laser to the specified area. The laser will emit a series of heat and light impulses that target the hair follicle, removing it at its root, while preserving the surrounding skin. You may feel a slight stinging sensation, which most find tolerable. We can apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area if you prefer.

You will be able to return to normal activities immediately after the procedure; however, you should avoid any strenuous activity for at least 24 hours.

Risks or Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective FDA-approved method of removing unwanted hair. Some patients may experience slight swelling or burning at the treatment site; however, side effects generally subside after a couple of days.

We recommend the use of sunscreen before and after treatment. Laser treatment cannot be done on tan skin. It is not safe to have laser treatment if you are pregnant. Ask any questions prior to commencing treatment, as it is important to have a clear understanding of the procedure, risks, and potential side effects.
