Laser Hair Removal Offers Long-Lasting Solutions for Unwanted Hair
Safely Remove Unwanted Hair with FDA Approved Laser Hair Removal Treatments.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that is safe and effective for the removal of unwanted hair. Until recently, shaving, tweezing, waxing, and electrolysis were the only methods of removing unwanted hair. In the early 1990s, the first reports of using laser energy to selectively damage and disable actively growing hair follicles were published. As this procedure has been refined, laser hair removal has become the preferred method for hair removal. The FDA approved this technology for permanent hair reduction. As of 2012, Laser Hair Removal remains one of the top five nonsurgial cosmetic procedures amongst women as reported by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Safe Laser Hair Removal
New Jersey law regulates who may perform laser hair removal procedures. Having your laser hair removal performed in NJ safely by a licensed medical professional ensures an extra level of safety.
Causes of Excessive Hair Growth
Excessive hair growth is classified as either hypertrichosis or hirsuitism. Hypertrichosis is the presence of excess hair in a normal or abnormal pattern. This may be inherited, or result from medications, hormones, malnutrition, tumors, or metabolic problems. Hirsuitism is the presence of excess hair in women in a male pattern such as the beard, mustache, or lower abdomen, and may be due to hormonal problems, medications, tumors, or heredity.
Hair Removal Methods
