Skin Sensitivity and Laser Hair Removal

I am often asked if laser hair removal in Denver can be performed on sensitive skin. In most cases, laser technology is safe for sensitive skin when performed correctly. That”s because the newer lasers are able to destroy hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin.

At Rejuvenate!, we offer the eMax Laser Hair Removal System from Syneron™. This treatment is effective for a variety of skin tones and hair colors and offers several advantages for our patients. Some of the benefits include:

  • more comfortable procedures, as a result of a topical cooling gel
  • reduced treatment time and fewer unwanted side effects, such as skin irritation
  • up to 90% reduction of unwanted hair in the treatment area
  • suitable for both small and large areas of the face and body

Experience Matters

Laser procedures use sophisticated equipment that should be operated only by trained medical professionals. Often, unsatisfactory results are due to the inexperience of the administrator rather than faulty technology. Take time to seek out an experienced, skilled medical professional who can choose the appropriate laser settings for your skin type. Also, it may be beneficial to ask for a “patch test” before undergoing laser hair removal to see how your skin reacts to the treatment.
