Lasers are among the wonders of the dermatological world. They can be used to plump up skin and smooth out wrinkles. Energy from these beams of light can remove freckles and age spots. Regretting that tattoo? We have a laser for that. Do you only see those blue veins when you look at your legs? There’s a laser for that, too. No wonder we have “laser” in our name!
Now, thanks to these multi-taskers of the industry, you can forgo all the mess, expense, and pain associated with depilatory creams, razors, waxing, tweezing, and electrolysis sessions.
It may be easy to see how laser therapy is a step up from store-bought products. The cost of razors adds up. Plus, it may seem like you spend most of your week in the bathroom, constantly touching up to keep your legs smooth. Then there’s the issue of irritation and razor burn. You may have the same types of complaints about waxing, tweezing, and depilatory creams, with maximum displeasing scents, minimal lasting effectiveness, and plenty of discomfort to boot.
A better procedure
It may not be as easy to see how lasers are preferred to electrolysis. After all, as a professional treatment it can be found at dermatological practices. It is not, however, a preferred option for hair removal at California Skin & Laser. While technologies have improved and creams may have a numbing effect, electrolysis can still be painful.
Another notable drawback is electrolysis requires each and every hair be treated individually. As you might imagine, a lot of time might be spent treating even one small area. There is the time investment and the cost investment from multiple sessions.
The discomfort is relatively known, but a lesser-known risk of electrolysis is associated with discoloration. The electricity can damage areas outside of the specific hairs and cells being treated. This damage shows up as patches that may be darker than the natural skin color. The epilator itself can also damage the surface of the skin, causing shallow areas or pits.
California Skin & Laser Center has used a number of different types of lasers to arrive at the Sciton Profile Laser, a significant improvement upon an already flexible, safe, and effective laser. Since this preferred option contains a built-in cooling plate, the procedure is more comfortable than earlier-generation lasers, let alone other methods such as electrolysis.
This device is also equipped with scanners that are controlled by computer, which assure laser pulses are delivered precisely. Since it is equipped with dual lasers, treatment sessions are typically shorter than those delivered with more traditional tools. The Sciton Profile Laser’s wider beam allows Dr. Gerald Bock to treat more follicles at one time than he could with older systems. All of this adds up to less time spent in our office for treatment. All of the built-in features also assure California Skin & Laser is not sacrificing quality for a more efficient system.
Technologies are always changing. California Skin & Laser is not afraid to try new tools to assure the best hair removal treatment in Stockton. Find out if laser therapy is preferred by and for you with a call to 209-751-4292 (for appointment bookings).
