Asheville Laser Hair Removal

Spring is here!!! Or living in Western North Carolina, Spring is here for a day and then winter again and then spring again. Luckily for us, Spring now finally seems here to stay. We can now enjoy blooming flowers and warmer weather. We trade our sweaters and jeans for cool tees, shorts, breezy dresses, and enjoy the sunshine on our bare skin.  However,  we have to deal with the always dreaded “ I have to shave more than once a week.”

Luckily, there’s actually an easy, permanent hair removal solution you may not have thought of- Laser Hair Removal.

But don’t you have to be pale with black hair? Doesn’t it hurt? Does anyone REALLY do that? No. Not Really. Lots of people do!

So this myth actually comes from fact. Like most technology we have today,  there have been major advancements since the first lasers were introduced. Those old units had difficulty differentiating between subtle color differences. So dark hair on dark skin or light hair on light skin would easily confuse the machine.  Luckily for us, with the increase in technology came smarter lasers. We are one of the few Asheville and Hendersonville laser centers that have the best state-of-the-art devices at your disposal.

Pain and Laser Hair Removal

“Beauty is pain!” Really though? Personally, I’m all about looking good without being brought to tears. Tears are pretty much unheard of here. Why?  We use a patented dynamic cooling device with our GentleMax Pro lasers which provides a burst of chilled air right before the laser pulse- ensuring comfort and protection for your skin.

Who does Laser Hair Removal

You. Or if not actually you than someone just like you. I mean is there anyone out there that actually likes the drudgery of shaving? I think I’ve heard more people admit an affection towards laundry or doing dishes. Then there are the long term costs. Razors and creams are ridiculously expensive and only temporarily remove hair. So why are we doing something we hate and spending lots of $$$ to do it? Where’s the logic? I’d much rather spend the money now and enjoy being permanently hair free- wouldn’t you?!

Laser Hair Removal and the Sun

If you are thinking of LHR, Avoid getting a sunburn or a new tan at least a week prior to treatment. You can enjoy the outdoors, just wear sunblock 50+ and/or protective clothing over the area that you want to have treated. We can treat established tans with our ND YAG laser, but anyone with a recent sunburn or prolonged sun exposure will have to wait a week or two before getting started. We believe Laser Hair Removal should not be cost prohibitive. Dr. Harpe offers reasonable LHR prices, ARC member discounts, and a professional staff to serve you.
