Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Laser Hair Removal—the solution to unwanted hair!

No More waxing or shaving! The doctors and staff of Garden State Spine & Pain Institute are proud to be expanding our services to include medical spa treatments. In addition to Botox for fine lines, Juvederm for wrinkles and Latisse eyelash extensions, the doctors now use numerous cosmetic lasers including one that is known as the gold standard for hair removal. The use of lasers can only be performed by a medical doctor and Garden State Spine & Pain Institute is the first and only office in New Jersey to be able to offer this fast and effective technology. This new laser technology is far superior to that of technology of previous lasers and enables our physicians to offer procedures that are more effective in less time than other laser treatments available on the market.

In the US, an excess of $3.5 billion is spent on hair removal each year. In the past, remedies for unwanted hair were limited to plucking, shaving, waxing, or electrolysis. These are messy, painful and ALL are temporary. Laser hair removal has become the most popular worldwide cosmetic laser procedure.

Our office is pleased to announce our new, state of the art, High Speed Lightsheer DUET™ for permanent hair reduction with exciting speed and amazing comfort. Permanently reduce unwanted body hair in a fraction of the time of past procedures. Backs and legs can now be treated in ONLY 20 minutes, which takes 45-60 minutes with other, less effective lasers. So if you are like most of us, and you have unwanted body hair, the Lightsheer DUET™ may be the solution for you.

How it works:
During the procedure, the laser pulses heat up hair significantly impeding its ability to re-grow. The new large spot size on the High Speed Lightsheer provides the ability to treat numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.

There are two handpieces on the DUET™. The High Speed (HS), uses a vacuum assisted technology with a diode laser light allowing for rapid and comfortable treatments of large areas. The gold standard in laser hair removal, the Lightsheer ET™ handpiece with Chill Tip® cooling, (kept below 4 degrees Celsius), is used for smaller contoured areas of the body. Together, using both the High Speed and ET lasers, our physicians can effectively remove hair on the upper lips, underarms, legs, bikini, backs, and faces or any other body part with ease. Any hair with at least some pigment in it (black, brown, red and even blond), can be treated effectively including all skin types including dark skinned individuals.

What can you expect?
Lasers work best when hair is in its earliest stage of growth called Anagen. Because hair is always in different stages of growth, laser hair removal requires multiple treatments. Following each visit, hair growth is thinner and thinner until it is non-existent. In some cases, a maintenance treatment is recommended after 2 years.

I am so proud to be able to offer this particular line of lasers in our office! Patients of Garden State Spine and Pain Institute are accustom to receiving the best service and quality medical care available, and our staff take pride in being able to deliver tender loving care to everyone. With the additional of our new top of the line cosmetic lasers, that are the Mercedes of laser technology, we are happy to be able to offer numerous new non-invasive, pain free cosmetic treatments in the safety of a doctor’s office. So lose your wrinkles, facial lines, or your body hair!! We can help!

Oh, and I’m not only an owner of the practice, but I’m a client too!!
