Contour Dermatology bolsters patients struggling with friction-inducing strands and stubble with safe, comfortable laser hair-removal techniques. Over the course of three sessions, medically trained staffers teleport black or brunette fuzz from the face or body to a far-off galaxy by aiming a low-energy GentleLase beam at follicular bases. Charged particles carry enough energy to blast away the melanin inside errant bristles but leave the surrounding skin healthy and unharmed. Like planning a date for your parents, the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, so technicians employ a cool laser tip, gel, or spray to soothe the skin and help spare nerves undue unpleasantness. Most complexions are acceptable candidates for laser hair removal, but clients with a very dark complexion may be subject to a spot test to ensure effective treatment. Clients need three to six sessions on average to impede ill-placed tufts during the active phase of each follicle's growth cycle.
