The skin on the human body can be covered with millions of hair follicles. As you age, hair in certain parts of the body can become more pronounced. This can alter your overall appearance and even affect your self-esteem.

In a situation like this, you can turn to the cosmetic services offered at the Dermatology Center in Orem, Utah. During your initial consultation, we can assess the areas you would like addressed and help you understand your treatment options. In many cases, we might suggest a laser hair removal treatment.

This non-invasive method of treatment uses highly concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles and inhibit future hair growth. It can be used on several different body parts. The laser generates an intense heat that damages the hair follicle. It’s important to note that this treatment only affects actively growing hair follicles. You might need several treatments to achieve the desired effect.

While laser hair removal can efficiently slow hair growth, it does not guarantee permanent hair removal. In the future, you might need to return to the Dermatology Center to have minor edits made or another laser hair removal treatment.

If you live near Orem, Utah, and you are interested in laser hair removal to address an area of unwanted hair, you should call 801-224-5200 to schedule a consultation at the Dermatology Center.
