Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a popular treatment among both men and women. It is a non- invasive, cosmetic procedure that can safely and efficiently remove unwanted hair from various places on the body; the process is technically referred to as “photoepilation.” Laser hair removal is a painless and more reliable alternative to electrolysis and other hair removal methods. It can treat all hair colors and skin types, but is proven to be most effective on individuals who have light skin and dark hair. Dr. Powers is highly trained in laser hair removal, having witnessed its success on numerous patients.
This procedure involves the use of a state-of-the-art laser that emits a concentrated beam of light aimed at the targeted hair for removal, while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. The light is then absorbed by the pigment, damaging the hair follicle in order to inhibit and slow down future hair growth. Most commonly, women choose to receive laser hair removal treatment in the upper lip, underarms, bikini line, and legs. The target areas for men typically include the chest, back, and shoulders.
Laser hair removal usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on certain factors, such as the size of the area being treated and how many areas are treated. You may have a topical anesthetic applied to reduce any discomfort during the procedure. There is no downtime following treatment.
Gold Standard Technology
Most physicians agree that the Lumenis LightSheer diode laser is the premier “Gold Standard” laser for hair removal. Here at Diva Medical Center, we have performed thousands of procedures using this laser in the last 10 years under physician supervision.
Although laser hair removal provides successful results, it does not guarantee permanent hair removal. Therefore, in order to maintain an extended hair-free period, periodic maintenance treatments may be required. Hair removal results will differ from person to person, but generally, the outcome may can last anywhere between several months to two years.

"I went to Dr. Powers because some of my friends had a few skin procedures done and they looked fabulous. I was very nervous but after it was over, I realized I had nothing to be nervous about. There was absolutely no pain involved at all. It was so simple. And now, I have people telling me that my skin looks really pretty. I’ve never in my life had anyone tell me that I have pretty skin, even when I was young! I owe it all to Dr. Powers. I would recommend him to anyone (and I do)."
