Laser light is a quick, relatively painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods. The surrounding tissue is unaffected, and there is little to no irritation of the skin. Most areas usually require three to six treatments performed in six- to ten-week intervals to fully rid the dermis of unwelcome fur. Dr. Robert Niedblaski and the certified professionals at the physician-owned-and-operated Laser Hair & Skin Center will strip your lip of unwanted strands ($396 per package; a package is up to five treatments) or whip your bikini line ($796 per package) into two-piece shape just in time for Unusually Casual Friday at the office.
