The National Center for Integrative Medicine’s skilled staff targets a spectrum of bristle with efficient, dual-phase lasers. Steady hands train Phaser EPL or Palomar LuxRs IPL lasers onto stray tendrils, peppering the germ cell and hair root with intense pulses of yellow and red light and Old Bay seasoning. Differing levels of thermal energy target the pigment in fine, light-colored follicles and disable coarse, stubborn strands without overheating surrounding dermal tissues. As the beam emits radiant bursts in time with a marching-band cover of "Hair," clients may experience a mild pinching sensation, similar to the snap of a rubber band, which typically subsides within a few minutes following the session. The center recommends four to six treatments for long-lasting results, with each session lasting from 15 to 45 minutes depending upon the size of the skin swath being cleared.

Under a wood-paneled ceiling and glowing pendant lamps, a granite-topped reception desk welcomes visitors to the laser-and-aesthetics wing of NCIM with a surprising "hello." Recline on a plump peach chaise in one of the modern treatment chambers, where potted plants, crisp linens, or tea lights brighten cherry cabinets and butter-colored walls.
