Unwanted Hair

Conditions Hair Unwanted Hair

Many people feel that they’re constantly fighting a losing battle against unwanted hair. Some are bothered by facial hair; others find themselves constantly shaving their arms and legs in the summer. Frustration is inevitable when the hair comes right back within a day or two, and you might also suffer side effects like razor burn. The Langdon Center can help you finally win the war against unwanted hair.

What Hair Removal Treatments Are Available?

Since hair-free skin is a popular interest, countless hair removal treatments exist. You’ll find dozens of options for razors, trimmers, electric shavers, waxing kits, and creams that promise to banish your unwanted hair. Many people find the results of these treatments far from satisfactory, however.

Shaving may be the simplest and most common form of hair removal, but it’s certainly not without faults. Most people have to shave every day or two to keep their skin smooth and free of bristles. If you have dry skin or are shaving sensitive areas like your bikini line, you may also struggle with constant skin irritation and razor bumps.

Some people turn to wax for results that last a few weeks instead of days. However, it’s a painful process and comes with the risk of burns and inflammation. Both waxing and shaving often leave behind ingrown hairs. If you’re tired of these temporary, time-consuming, and uncomfortable hair removal methods, it may be time to try laser hair removal. You can enjoy months or even years instead of days or weeks of hair-free skin!

Frequently Asked Questions

The Langdon Center offers laser hair removal with the Vectus® diode laser by Palomar and the Apogee Elite™ laser by Cynosure. While shaving and waxing only remove the hair itself, laser hair removal yields long-term results by targeting the roots. The laser device heats up hair follicles, damaging them so they no longer produce hair. 

Laser hair removal can be used almost anywhere you have unwanted hair, including the:

  • Face
  • Arms and underarms
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini area

Depending on the size of the treatment area, laser hair removal takes approximately an hour, and most people need multiple sessions for optimal results. The treatment requires no downtime and has little to no side effects.

Laser hair removal has several advantages over shaving and waxing, including the lack of razor burn, ingrown hairs, and other uncomfortable side effects.

Most patients can keep their skin smooth and hair-free with yearly maintenance treatments.
