Luminous Skin Without Hair…..You Deserve It!

At Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute, we have 3 Laser / Light devices / wavelengths for laser hair removal so that we can treat all patients and all skin types safely and effectively, (unlike many Las Vegas hair removal clinics with only one hair removal technology.)

Our state of the art Lutronic 755 / 1064 nm dual Alexandrite / YAG laser sets a new standard for laser hair removal. This gentle no downtime treatment is non-invasive, comfortable, efficacious, and tailored just for you at Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute of Summerlin, Las Vegas.

BBL BroadBand Light for permanent hair reduction (removal) is an innovative light-based technology that utilizes pulses of light energy to gently penetrate into the skin and specifically target, disable and destroy unwanted hair follicles, via the deliverance of photothermal (light-based heat) energy. Our physicians (Robert Strimling, MD & Lionel Handler, MD) of Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute of Summerlin, Las Vegas tailor the treatment to your skin and hair type for optimal results.

Hair grows in three stages; and the anagen (or hair growing) stage is the most vulnerable to light or laser therapy (permanent hair removal). Laser or BBL selectively heats and damages the hair follicle; thus, disabling hair growth. Because not all hair is in the anagen phase at any one time, multiple treatments must be given over time to treat all or most anagen hairs. Laser or BBL can be used on any accessible body part.  Dark hairs respond best. In-grown hairs or “shaving or razor bumps” (aka pseudofolliculitis barbae) respond well to BBL or laser hair removal also. Most skin types are excellent candidates, except for very dark skin types. Recovery / downtime is minimal to none. Some redness is normal for a few hours to days.

Precautions or contraindications are generally few, but include:

  • no suntan or sunburn (avoid sun tanning)
  • sun avoidance for at least 2 weeks prior laser / BBL treatment and until any post-treatment redness subsides.

Suntan skin contains extra pigment that absorbs laser / BBL energy intended for hair; and can also promote untoward side effects via excessive energy absorption in the superficial skin layers.

Alternatives to Laser / light-based hair removal include:
Waxing, shaving and depilatory creams. Electrolysis is another method of permanent hair reduction method. However, it is very time-consuming, painful, and not without complications. Presently, the most popular and effective permanent hair reduction method is via laser or intense pulsed light, such as BBL, which destroys many hairs at once in a brief visit with reduced side effects.
