Sleeker, smoother skin with laser hair removal in Portland
If you are like most people who struggle with unwanted body hair, you may have tried every solution under the sun, including electrolysis, tweezing, shaving, waxing, creams and serums, many of which can be quite painful and time-consuming. Fortunately, laser technology has made great strides in the last decade and has become among the top treatments for hair removal, leaving behind smooth, silky skin that is soft to the touch.
Laser hair removal works by directing potent laser energy at the hair follicles, pulverizing them while leaving the surrounding cells intact. Because hair grows in cycles, more than one laser treatment may be required; however, many patients see amazing results after just one session.
Benefits of laser hair removal may include:
- Safe and effective for all types of skin
- Short treatment time of around 30 minutes
- Low risk of side effects
- Resume regular activities right away
- Non-invasive, gentle
- Smooth, radiant skin
- Can be used to treat the arms, legs, chest, back, face and pubic area
- Become beach-ready with no downtime

How does my treatment work?
A specially designed laser hand piece will be used to glide across your treatment areas, delivering micropulses of laser energy that will penetrate the hair follicles.
While you will see improvement after one visit, Dr. Gabriel suggests several follow up sessions to ensure all the hair is removed and you obtain comprehensive results. These can be scheduled a few weeks apart.
