Summer is Coming So It’s Time to Get Rid of that Unwanted Hair

As the summer vacation season approaches, everyone is a little self conscious about getting into that swimsuit for the first time.

Some people just want to lose a few pounds. Other people want to firm up around the mid section and buttocks. And others are more self conscious about unwanted hair. For those individuals, it’s the perfect time to consider laser hair removal.

Our new Alexandrite laser featured at the Happel Laser & Vein Centre is the latest generation of hair removal lasers and provides a new level of effectiveness with results that last.

Other hair removal techniques provide only temporary relief and require a significant time commitment which makes it impractical and expensive. Laser treatments are less painful and less costly overall. The good news is that laser hair removal is ideal for the bikini line, underarms, face, neck, back, shoulders, chest, abdomen, legs, and even buttocks.

laser hair removal for womenThe number of sessions will vary for each individual, but generally four to six treatments at monthly intervals are all that is required. This is because hair follows a specific growth cycle, moving from an “active” phase into a dormant phase. Our new state of the art laser removes visible hair and disables hair follicles in the “active” phase of the growth cycle. Follicles in the dormant phase are not affected. The hairs will take exactly 14 days to die and fall out after your treatment. Periodic touch ups may be desired as dormant hair follicles become active, however, people see dramatic results after two weeks of the initial treatment.

For our patients the advantages of our new laser are:

• More comfortable treatments
• Less time in the chair so that you return to your daily activities quicker
• Unrivalled effectiveness
• Less service calls and maintenance is required so less need to reschedule appointments because “the machine is down”

ConsumerSearch.com recommends that cosmetic procedures should be researched thoroughly, including checking reviews of the business and possibly speaking to the doctor, which “goes against the idea of a daily deal — buying something very quickly and impulsively.

There is no reason to put it off any longer. Our latest generation brand new laser for hair removal is unrivalled and is simply incredible. To learn more about this exciting new laser or to make an appointment, please call us at (724) 969-0900. We will be happy to answer any of your questions.
