Permanent Hair Removal

Why should I consider laser hair removal?

Most methods of hair removal only provide a temporary fix for the problem of unwanted body hair. Dr. Sannoh provides a permanent solution with advanced laser treatments that will ensure a future free from constant shaving or waxing.

Not only are those methods time consuming, but shaving can cause stubble issues and can irritate more sensitive areas such as underarms and bikini lines, and waxing or epilating can be a fairly painful experience. Stopping the hair’s ability to regrow is the only permanent solution, and Dr. Sannoh can help you achieve permanent hair removal with a course of laser treatments.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

There are many reasons to choose laser hair removal over traditional methods, including:

  • Lasers have the precision to treat individual hairs
  • Each laser pulse can treat multiple hairs on larger areas
  • Treatment doesn’t harm the surrounding skin, and you shouldn’t feel too much discomfort
  • It only takes around an hour to treat both legs and mere minutes to target an area like the upper lip

After your laser hair removal treatments at Total Wellness, you should find that regrowth ceases entirely after between three and five sessions.

How do the lasers work?

Dr. Sannoh uses the laser to send a highly concentrated beam of light directly into the hair follicles. The pigment in the hair that gives it its color will absorb the light, which compromises the follicle permanently, so it’s unable to regrow hair.

Laser hair removal is a regulated medical procedure that should only be carried out by a professional such as Dr. Sannoh. The procedure itself is not dangerous, but the lasers must be used correctly to ensure the process is as safe as possible.

Dr. Sannoh repeats the procedure every four to six weeks until the hair stops growing back.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

You won’t need any anesthetic. Rather, a cool gel is applied to your skin before the procedure, and applying cooling lotion or ice packs after the treatment reduces any surface inflammation. Dr. Sannoh makes every effort to ensure your comfort during the treatment.
