Laser Hair Removal
One of the most common applications of lasers today is the reduction of unwanted hair. Commonly called laser hair removal or laser hair reduction, the application of laser technology is one of the most popular in the world. Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Associates, SC, with offices throughout the Naperville area, have lasers designed to remove hair in area such as the bikini line, upper lip, under arms, back, and legs. The 1064nm-Nd:YAG laser is safe for all skin types. Treatment for hair reduction requires multiple visits (typically 5) because only a small percentage of the hair on your body is growing at one time, and this is when the hair cells must be exposed to the laser light. With package prices for laser hair reduction, this affordable alternative to shaving and waxing may be right for you.
Waxing is a time-tested, inexpensive way to get rid of unwanted body hair. It's most often used on the face, legs and around the bikini line, but it can be used on many other areas of the body as well. If you're embarrassed by unwanted facial hair you just know other people notice, if you want the smoothest legs you've ever felt, or if you're tired of embarrassing bikini hair, waxing may be something you should consider.

The treatment involves spreading warm wax evenly over the skin, then taking it off in a quick and smooth movement. Most people find the procedure stings briefly, and some experience temporary redness afterward. But performed by an experienced aesthetician, it's a safe, effective treatment.
Like most other methods of hair removal, waxing is a temporary solution. But since it removes the hair from the follicles, your hair will grow back softer and more slowly — within 3 to 8 weeks — than it does with shaving. Waxing is an especially good solution for stray hair around the bikini line — a tender area susceptible to rashes from shaving and ingrown hairs from plucking. You should not consider the treatment for skin with pimples, rashes, warts or moles, and wax cannot be used on thin skinned areas such as the nipples. The treatment is not recommended for patients using retinoids.
This treatment not only successfully removes unwanted hair, but it also exfoliates dry, flaky dead skin cells, leaving the skin softer and smoother to the touch.
