Laser hair removal liberates men and women from shaving

laser hair removal from Illinois Dermatologist Are you tired of daily shaving, tedious plucking, painful waxing, and messy depilatories? Do you want to look well-groomed, with smooth, sleek skin?

It is time to consider laser hair removal at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois in Algonquin. Using current laser technology, Dr. Khanna safely and effectively eliminates unwanted hair on your face and body.

Problem hair . . . here, there, and everywhere

Many people mistakenly believe that laser hair removal is only for the face. In truth, the highly-trained team at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois can also treat small or large areas of unwanted body hair.
Our laser hair removal technique results in permanent hair reduction in the following areas:
  • Chest
  • Neck – front and back (No more chafing from your shirt collar!)
  • Shoulders
  • Back
  • Bikini zone
  • Face – upper lip, cheeks, chin, eyebrows, and hairline
  • Legs
  • Hands and knuckles
  • Buttocks
  • Ears
  • Abdomen

The laser hair removal process

The best candidate for laser hair removal has a fair skin and dark hair. During treatment, pigments in hair absorb light energy, destroying follicles in the anagen growth stage, with minimal risk of harm to skin. However, with modern laser equipment, a range of skin tones and hair colors may be successfully treated at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois.

Because hair has several growth phases, a series of laser treatments (usually two to six) is necessary for full resolution of unwanted hair. Obvious improvement occurs after the first treatment! Regrowth is typically less noticeable – thinner, finer, and lighter in color. Removal of treated hair is permanent. The body continues to produce some new hair follicles, but with occasional touch-ups, your skin stays smooth and hair-free.
