Lasting Improvements

Laser hair removal reduces unwanted hair with a low energy laser beam that destroys the active hair follicles. The surrounding skin and tissue are unharmed, so there is no healing or recovery time required. Commonly treated areas include:

With attention to quality of care and specialized expertise in medical laser technology, Dr. Yi personally performs all laser procedures himself. In addition to laser hair removal, he performs laser skin resurfacing, PROFractional™, and IPL skin rejuvenation, and skin tightening with the state-of the-art Sciton laser. He has been a clinical consultant for many major laser manufacturers such as Coherent, Cutera, and Scition. Dr. Yi will tailor a rejuvenation plan to your individual goals, whether they are simple or more comprehensive.

How It Works

Because hair grows in cycles, a series of treatments is usually necessary to achieve more complete results. The majority of the laser's energy is absorbed by dark melanin (pigment) in the hair. The ideal patient has light skin and dark hair, which directs the light energy more on the hair than the skin. However, in most cases Dr. Yi can adjust the laser to effectively treat patients with darker skin or lighter hair.
