Laser Hair Removal
Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in the bulb and bulge. After a series of treatments, most hair is permanently removed. For a complimentary consultation call us at (909) 355-1296

Proven Safe and effective:
Not all hair removal treatments are equal. With some lasers, the amount of treatments required for your desired result increases significantly, thus requiring more time to complete full treatment. Cleared by the FDA for permanent hair reduction, count on Clarity to provide a permanent and fast solution for unwanted hair.
Side effects are usually mild. The skin may appear red, similar to a sunburn, but this will go away within 24-48 hours. Other side-effects, such as blisters, are extremely rare.
Preparing for Laser Hair Removal:
Your doctor will provide you with detailed instructions. Usually, the area that will be treated should be shaved first, to ensure a more comfortable and effective treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients will need at least 3 treatments, spaced at least 4 to 8 weeks apart, for satisfactory results. You may start seeing results after your first treatments, but it usually takes more than a single treatment to accomplish the desired look a patient wants.
Who is a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
All hair removal lasers work by targeting the pigment within the follicle, which means the darker the hair the easier it will be to treat. However, today’s lasers, such as the Clarity Laser, treat a full spectrum of skin types and hair color. Your physician will develop a treatment course that is right for you.
Laser Hair Removal and Dark Skin:
Clarity has two wavelengths that allow us to treat the entire spectrum of skin color, making laser hair removal safe and effective for any skin type.
Length of Treatment:
Some treatments only take 2 minutes, but it can take up to 15 min. Length of treatment depends on the size of the treatments area. For example, treating the upper lip or chin area may only take 2 minutes, whereas the back area will take closer to 10 minutes.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Most patients experience mild pinching of the skin as the laser handpiece moves over the hair. The Clarity laser has a specialized air cooling system that makes the treatment more comfortable.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.
During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
