We all know that hair removal is a time-consuming and frustrating experience. Shaving, waxing, painful electrolysis—all are tedious and time-consuming. Worst of all, your hair grows back. At Avanti Skin Center, we offer a permanent solution to unwanted hair.

During your initial Avanti Skin Center Complimentary Consultation, we will ask you about the areas on your face and body where unwanted hair bothers you most. Once we understand your goals and your skin type, we will recommend your personal permanent hair reduction plan.

Avanti has the newest laser technology for hair removal.  The Lutronic ClarityII laser is fast and comfortable.  The ClarityII is so fast that full legs or a back can be treated in just minutes rather than an hour.  That makes treatments easy to do after work or on a lunch break.

With these two options, we can remove almost all types of unwanted hair—from the coarse hairs on a man’s back to the finest hair on a woman’s upper lip. We treat all skin types and tones including tanned skin. When you come in for your complimentary consultation , we’ll learn what areas of unwanted hair concern you most, so we can decide which laser hair removal option will work best.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What do laser hair removal treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

What are the possible side effects?
Although patients experience few side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

How does laser hair removal compare with other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Laser hair removal offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.

How does laser hair removal compare with electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, laser hair removal effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
