Laser Hair Removal
Dr. Roper performs laser hair reduction in her office, using the latest state-of-the-art laser systems for that purpose, the Candela GentleLase Alexandrite and the Candela GentleYag 1064 laser hair reduction systems. Most hair reduction systems do not have FDA clearance for permanent hair reduction, yet these systems do! Again, this procedure is technique dependent, and all procedures are performed by Dr. Roper, not by her assistants or technicians.
The person behind the laser is just as important as the laser itself. Approximately 5- 10 treatments per area at 2 month intervals are recommended, depending on the amount and location of the hair to be removed. Tanning needs to be avoided in the treated areas before, during, between, and after treatments. Electrolysis and waxing need to avoided 6 weeks prior to treatment. The patented DCD cooling spray attached to the Candela hair removal lasers makes it the least painful and safest laser system on the market
