If you are like most women, you are probably sick of the tedious need to regularly remove unwanted hair by plucking, shaving, or waxing. Laser hair removal has helped many women relieve themselves of the burden of removing unwanted hair. The procedure is safe and effective for the long-term removal of unwanted hair after several treatment sessions.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a technique that can safely remove unwanted hair for many years. We use a cosmetic laser to transmit thermal energy that is absorbed by the melanin in your hair. Melanin is a pigment that gives your hair its color. The treatment works best when you have dark and coarse hair. More melanin means that more thermal energy is absorbed.
Would I Make a Good Candidate?
If your skin is in reasonably good condition and you are not taking certain medications, you would likely make a suitable candidate for laser hair removal. It also helps to have realistic expectations about what this treatment can accomplish.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The treatment utilizes light wavelengths to destroy melanin found in your hair follicles. The lasers that we use are designed for the permanent removal of hair and destroy it without harming neighboring skin tissue. This is because the hair itself will absorb all of the transmitted energy, while leaving surrounding skin unaffected.
Patients normally require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results. The reason that multiple hair removal treatments are required is because of the way that the individual hairs grow. Although you may not realize it, each of your hairs has a specific growth phase. When hair is in its resting phase, it falls out, which means that it cannot be targeted by the laser. So having multiple hair removal sessions allows us to catch each individual hair when it happens to be in its growth phase and can be targeted by the laser.

People Can't Believe I'm 75!
by Joanne Wilburn
I'm 75 years old, and recently upon visiting various doctors, I've had three of them either walk past me staring or even walk past the examination room, not recognizing their 75 year old patient. I've even had one nurse tell me the doctor thought he had the wrong person in the examination room because my skin looked so young! People actually come up to me and ask to touch my face. I love it!
Professional and caring, skilled healthcare team!

In late October I had a work-related injury that resulted in a partial amputation of my left thumb. Because my bone was exposed, reconstructive surgery was needed in order to minimize infection and to save what I had left of my thumb. Dr. Kevin Myers determined that a Moberg advancement flap was the best option to maintain full range of motion and the most thumb length possible. My overall experience here was absolutely amazing! The entire staff was very accommodating and kind and worked in a very professional matter. They were always there to answer questions when I had them. My surgery went very well, and recovery was easy. A little over two months later, I now have a fully functioning thumb with full feeling and full range of motion! I am totally impressed with the work that the healthcare staff did! Although I hope to never need any reconstructive surgery again, I would not hesitate coming back here if I needed to for any issue. 100% would recommend to friends or family.
Most caring doctor
