At Bay Area Laser Institute, patients can expect to receive cutting edge treatments by a highly experienced physician.

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that has gained popularity in recent years, as patients have realized they do not have to live with excessive hair on the arms, legs or others areas. In the past, electrolysis was the best option patients had for removing unwanted hair. Still used in some areas today, electrolysis uses a tiny needle and the element of heat to destroy individual hair follicles.

Laser hair removal is more effective and can quickly destroy hundreds of hair follicles in a single pulse of light. So precise is laser hair removal that a patient may opt to completely remove all hair from a given area, or to simply thin it out. Laser hair removal typically takes five to ten sessions to complete, because hair grows in cycles. After several treatments, hair will not grow back.

Laser resurfacing is a very effective way to eliminate specific skin concerns and uncover healthy, more vibrant skin. Traditional treatments of skin resurfacing were quite intense, requiring IV sedation and sometimes a hospital stay. With advances in laser technology, patients today receive treatment with fractionated light, as opposed to a steady beam of light. Fractionated light is the key to more rapid recovery, as there are small areas of skin left untouched. These untouched areas promote healing immediately following treatment and lead to a short recovery period.

Laser skin resurfacing can correct skin problems including:

  • Skin discoloration such as age spots or port wine stains
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Loose skin
