Lasers for Hair Removal
If you're not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.

Laser Hair Removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Benefits of laser hair removal include:

Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

Predictability. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.

Our Laser Hair Removal Clinic at Bowes Dermatology by Riverchase counts with multiple lasers and light sources that can address the various concerns of patients and select the right modality based on the patient's skin type, areas of treatment desired as well as any prior history of not responding to other lasers.

Clear and Brilliant Pelo Laser

Effective Diode laser for hair removal using revolutionary scanning technology

The concept of linear scanning was invented by the founders of GME Laser Company. A laser beam is scanned across a large treatment area. Linear scanning offers a unique combination of short/strong pulses with a high treatment speed. This technology also allows comfortable treatments for patients seeking permanent laser hair removal.


- Very fast treatments (e.g. 10 to 20 min for a back)
- Treatment area of 50 mm x 15 mm for larger areas like legs or back
- Can be adjusted by software to 25 mm x 15 mm or 12 mm x 15 mm, allowing treatment of very large areas such as the back and legs, but also small areas such as the lips and chin.

Effective on all Skin Types

Wavelength of 808 nm is proven to be effective for all skin types. Very strong integrated contact cooling allows hair removal in darker skin.
