Removing Unwanted Hair
If you live with unwanted hair, you've dreamed of smooth skin and a day when you wouldn't have to be self-conscious when you're near others. Like most of our patients, you've tried everything, from lotions and potions to shaving, waxing, and electrolysis. If so, you've also found that:
- Shaving is a daily nuisance
- Tweezing is painful and short-term
- Waxing is also painful and short-term
Electrolysis is effective, but since it only treats one hair follicle at a time, it’s not practical for large areas and is extremely time-consuming.
The Pulsed Laser Alternative
Township Laser Center utilizes Palomar Pulsed Light Systems equipment which employs leading edge technology, which is considered to be the most sophisticated laser light equipment available on the market for hair removal.
Permanent: Concentrated pulses of light loosen the hair and disable the cells responsible for new hair growth.
Fast: Small areas, such as the underarms or upper lip can be treated in 10 minutes or less, and even large areas like the back or legs, can be treated in less than a half hour.
Comfortable: Various cooling methods keep the light pulses mild and skin-safe, allowing for more comfortable treatments than electrolysis and waxing.
Convenient: Unlike waxing, there is no need to let hair grow out between treatment. You can remain hair-free all the time.
What Others Are Saying
When I was in my teens, I was always embarrassed to go to the beach with my girlfriends. I was very hairy around my legs, bikini and stomach area. I absolutely hated waxing, it was painful and took a lot of time. When I hit my 20s, I knew I needed to do something about it and decided to do laser hair removal. Now I never have to worry about waxing. I go to the beach all the time and never worry about a thing. I look and feel great!

I tended to stay away from wearing blouses and dresses with exposed underarms, and living in Florida I missed wearing pretty, sleeveless styles. I finally decided to do laser for my underarms and it's the best thing I ever did. I wish I did it sooner. Now I wear sleeveless clothes year-round and can show off my arms.

I'm recently divorced and started going to the gym. I have a very hairy back and arms and I used to get these very weird looks. I decided to do laser hair removal and in practically a month, the hair on my back and arms is gone. I no longer get weird stares. I feel much better about myself. It was a great decision.

Even though I'm only 17, I have an abnormal amount of hair on my legs, stomach and chest. It has had a really negative influence since I was 11. My friends would make fun of me and I'd try to avoid the gym at all costs, even though I am a good athlete. My parents saw how unhappy I was and they talked to me about considering getting laser hair removal. At first I thought it was ridiculous, but I was miserable all of the time and very self conscious. I finally agreed and did laser hair removal and it has completely changed my attitude and my life. Now, I feel really good about myself, I look forward to working out at the gym and I am much more comfortable around girls too.
