Palomar® Pulsed Light Hair Removal 

The Palomar® Pulsed Light Hair Removal system is a revolutionary new way of removing small and large areas of unwanted hair, especially on the legs of women and the back of men.  Unlike painful electrolysis or waxing, the Palomar Pulsed Light Hair Removal system is comfortable and safe.  It is so fast that a woman can have her legs treated in less than 30 minutes!
The Palomar Pulsed Light Hair Removal System is unique in that it uses light energy to disable or destroy hair follicles, the part of hair responsible for growth.  Because more than one hair is targeted at a time, the Palomar Pulsed Light Hair Removal System is perfect for treating large areas of unwanted hair, and it can be used on most skin tones.

Palomar Pulsed Light Hair Removal requires a short office visit.  The Palomar wand is simply glided along your skin.  Following the treatment, the skin is cleansed and moisturized.  Mild redness or swelling may be noticed immediately after the procedure, buts resolves very quickly.  The treatment will make your skin feel silky smooth.  You should use a sunscreen when you are outdoors.  Because hair grows in cycles, you may need more than one treatment to achieve the results you desire.
