Softer, smoother skin for years to come
Bothered by shaving, ingrown hairs and simply the annoying sight of hair where it shouldn’t be? Laser hair removal helps you simplify the process, get rid of those bumps, and achieve smoother skin.
Dr. Christi brings to you the safety and effectiveness of superior hair removal with the use of a concentrated laser light delivered by the first laser to carry FDA clearance for permanent hair reduction on Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV: the ND Yag. While laser hair removal may or may not be new to you, Dr. Christi’s highly acclaimed ND Yag laser may be. The Cutera Long Pulse: Nd Yag laser (1064nm) is a technology known for excellent laser hair removal results and skin safety. Being able to combine these two is not always an option for every laser across all skin types.
The ND Yag comes with engineering capable of raising the heat to the desired level quickly before the hair follicle cools— all while protecting the outer skin with a patented internal cooling device.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you have medium to dark hair, your chances for great results and a high degree of delayed growth for long periods are quite good. However, if your hair is gray, white, red or blonde, your chances for effective laser hair removal decrease because your hair simply doesn’t possess sufficient amounts of melanin. Since the laser targets melanin, this is why you are not a candidate for the treatment.
Side effects include but are not limited to:
- Skin Irritation
- Minimal redness in the treatment area
- Mild swelling
These effects are generally mild and disappear within a few hours of treatment.
These are factors that influence laser hair removal results:
- Skin type
- Hair color
- Patient compliance with pre- and post-treatment instructions and care
- Sun exposure
- Waxing, plucking, and electrolysis
- Polycystic ovaries
- Exposure to light sensitive antibiotics/medications near time of treatment
