Laser hair removal new option at Avita

Staff report

Dr. Walter Bodjanac, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, is now offering laser hair removal at his medical office at Avita Ontario, next to Richland Mall.

Laser hair removal is a safe, effective way to remove unwanted hair from one’s face, back, chest, underarms, bikini line, and legs. It works best on individuals with dark hair and a fair complexion, and can be used on all skin types.

This method of hair removal uses a laser to emit a powerful beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin. The hair follicles absorb the laser energy, impairing the ability to grow new hair.

“I am constantly approached by both men and women about an alternative to shaving and other tedious hair-removal methods,” comments Dr. Bodjanac. “The benefit of laser hair removal is that it is safe, has long-lasting results, and is becoming a popular option for a lot of people…especially now that warmer weather is right around the corner.”

The number of laser treatments an individual requires depends on skin and hair color, density and coarseness of the hair, as well as the area being treated. Several treatment sessions, which are spaced 4-6 weeks apart, are recommended because the technology behind laser hair removal targets hair in the active phases of growth. Sessions take only a few minutes for small areas and approximately half an hour for large areas.
