Laser hair removal is without a doubt the most effective way to rid yourself of unwanted hair anywhere on the body. It’s quick, easy, and offers instant results. Our treatments in Pittsburgh, PA or Wexford, PA are available for both men and women with multiple skin types. What’s more, it’s a far cheaper alternative in the long-term. We’ll be happy to design a program that will have you hair-free in no time.

Laser hair removal near Morgantown, West Virginia works simply as well as painlessly to reduce hair growth. We beam away unwanted hair by directing concentrated light onto the hair follicle, destroying the hair’s ability to grow, and leaving skin smooth and permanently hair-free.

Our professionally trained and experienced medical providers use two different devices to provide the most effective results in laser hair removal. Using the Sciton Broad Band Light (BBL) technology and Emvera Diolux laser, we can make laser hair removal a reality for you.  Designed with sensitive skin in mind, these devices are safe enough to be used on any part of the body and with any skin type. They also feature a unique, dynamic cooling device that helps to soothe and protect skin, so you can be guaranteed to have a safe and comfortable treatment.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Acqua Blu Medical Spa near Morgantown, West Virginia uses a Broad Band Light (BBL) and an Emvera Diolux laser to permanently remove unwanted hair follicles while also eliminating discomfort during treatment. These lasers focus heat energy onto the capillaries that feed unwanted hair follicles, cauterizing the blood vessel, and permanently shutting down hair follicles.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment

During laser hair removal treatment, your provider will target the laser device on the particular area you are interested in treating. The laser delivers the same amount of heat energy to the follicle as other lasers, but it does so with less intensity over a longer period of time. You will experience a brief “snapping” sensation with little to no pain. The process is very quick and precise, targeting only the area that you want to free of hair. For example, treatment of a male’s back will usually take 20-30 minutes or so. Treatment for your upper lip will be done in less than five minutes!

Laser Hair Removal Results

Laser Hair Removal is a completely permanent procedure. Once you undergo the laser treatment, the hair in that area will not grow back. However, some factors do impact the effectiveness and should be kept in mind:

  • Skin Color: Effectiveness of the procedure depends on the absorption of light and heat by the melanin in the hair follicle (rather than the melanin in the skin). That being said, dark hairs in light-skinned people are the easiest to remove because the melanin in darker skin absorbs some of the light before it gets to the hair follicle. Additionally, blond, gray, and white hairs don’t absorb much heat.
  • Number of Sessions: Since hair growth is cyclical, (meaning only about a third of your hairs are actively growing at all times) and light-based hair removal only works when the hair is actively growing, you will need multiple treatments. About four to six treatments spaced four weeks apart will completely eliminate all unwanted hair. Our providers will help you ascertain your particular hair-growth cycle and the number or duration of the appointments necessary to achieve your hair-removal goals.If you are interested in removing your hair permanently, please contact us today at our offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Wexford, PA!
