Laser Hair Removal

Patients have told us that they love the freedom of not having to shave unwanted hair – whether on their face, underarms, bikini area, legs, or back. Lasers are effective in removing hair from nearly any body site, and the expert physicians at the U-M Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center will work with you to design custom treatment plans. If you are tired of a lengthy hair removal routine, make a consultation appointment to explore our safe and effective treatment options.

LightSheer and GentleYAG Lasers

Laser therapy removes unwanted hair, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing. During the procedure, laser light pulses on the skin, treating numerous hair follicles with each flash of light. Each laser pulse lasts for a fraction of a second - just long enough to heat up the treated skin’s hair follicles and significantly impede their ability to re-grow. Laser treatment injures or destroys hair follicles that are in a specific phase of their natural growth cycle at the time of the treatment, so laser hair removal requires a series of treatments to achieve maximal benefits.

Laser treatments are a safe, fast and effective method for permanent hair reduction. The type of laser utilized for your treatment and the laser settings used will be chosen by your physician to maximize your results and minimize the potential risks. With advances in laser technology, we are able to safely treat patients of all skin tones. Our GentleYAG laser is specifically designed to provide safe and effective treatment options for patients with darker skin tones. Here at U-M, we have multiple hair removal lasers and are able to choose the device that is most likely to be safe and effective for your specific skin and hair color.
