Board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Stephen H. Sutley oversees the implementation of Lumenis lasers designed to safely remove hair with zero downtime and zero anesthetics. During treatment, a vacuum-assisted device draws the skin closer toward the focused laser beams, enhancing the follicles' absorption of the light waves and sucking up any old popcorn kernels lodged within them. The laser then causes strands of body fuzz to heat up, deadening the roots to prevent further germination and allow the hair to gently brush away. Due to varying degrees of growth, several treatments and strongly written eviction notices are necessary to thoroughly banish unwanted hair. Lumenis lasers work with multiple skin and hair types, although clients with lighter hair may not see results.
