What is Laser Hair Removal?
Hair removal with a laser is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S. It's an effective technique for the long-term reduction of hair follicles on the face and body. At Everest Medspa, we use the Vectus laser hair removal system, which leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and produces great, lasting results compared to other common hair removal options. Laser hair removal is ideal for both men and women who want to reduce hair in frequently requested areas, such as the arms, back, legs, face, armpits, and chest. Contact our office in Wayne or Havertown, PA to schedule a consultation with board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Xiaobin Li or a member of her team today.

Am I A Candidate For Laser Hair Removal?

Our Laser Hair Removal Technique
During the procedure, a team member will smooth out the skin to provide a clear pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser's energy will target and disable the hair follicle, which stops the hair from growing again. Our advanced laser technology is able to target the hair follicle alone, while preserving the surrounding skin. On average, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your best results. While the treatment is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may look like it has a slight sunburn. Anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs can help alleviate any discomfort. You can resume your normal routine following your treatment, but you should avoid strenuous activity or sun exposure for 24 hours.
