Unwanted Hair

Unwanted Hair

Reaching for the razor may be your first instinct when it comes to reducing the hair on your body. However, though this may be the typical go-to method, it is far from comfortable. The burn and the irritation caused by razor shaving are everyday realities that most of us have to contend with. Thankfully, alternatives exist, and we’re happy to provide one at Aspen Pharmacy & Medical Aesthetics. If you struggle with unwanted hair, our SharpLight™ IPL system and XEO® laser treatments may be just what you need to get the beautifully smooth results you’ve been looking for.

What Causes Unwanted Hair?

Your hormone levels determine the amount of unwanted hair on your body. The hormones responsible for your hair quantity are called androgens. These hormones control the density of body hair after we reach puberty and are more active in men. The more androgens you have, the thicker, darker, and more visible your hair will be. For those who have sensitive skin, having excessive body hair can cause quite a bit of skin irritation at times. At Aspen Pharmacy & Medical Aesthetics, we provide a laser hair reduction system that effectively eliminates unwanted body hair without aggressive irritation.

Tired of Razor Irritation?

Ingrown hairs, blackheads, and redness can be common in those with many body hair and sensitive skin. Hair regrowth after shaving can be incredibly itchy and uncomfortable for those with these types of issues. If you rarely shave because of the discomfort that traditional shaving causes, our SharpLight™ IPL may be just the right choice for you. Treatments with this device are performed with precision and care to ensure you get the great results you want without downtime.

How Do We Remove Unwanted Hair?

Our SharpLight™ IPL system relies on targeted laser energy that damages your hair follicles without injuring the surrounding skin. A light beam penetrates the sub-dermal skin layer during treatment and is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair follicle. The energy is powerful enough to denaturize the hair follicle and inhibit future hair growth, yet gentle enough to leave the surrounding tissue unharmed. XEO’s ProWave LX™ applicator is perfect for providing non-invasive laser hair removal, especially for those with light or fine hair.
