CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people have hair on their face or body that they wish would disappear. In fact, unwanted hair is a common problem. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, laser hair removal is the 3rd most performed non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the US1.
"When patients come to me seeking a solution for their unwanted hair, they've usually tried other methods with little success," says Dr. James Altizer with Vein Center of Charlotte. "When I tell them about permanent hair reduction treatments using the Cynosure Elite MPX™, it's very exciting news for them."
The Elite MPX provides the technology needed for comprehensive hair that can treat unwanted hair anywhere on the face or body, regardless of the patient's ethnicity. "Whether the patient has dark or light skin, I am able to effectively treat them, even patients with tanned skin," Dr. Altizer said.
To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin and penetrate to the hair follicle. The follicle absorbs the energy and is rendered unable to ever produce hair again, while the surrounding tissue is left unharmed. "People want to feel good about how they look, and these laser treatments can help make that happen," Dr. Altizer said. "My patients are consistently satisfied with their results."
In addition to providing hair removal treatments the Elite MPX at Vein Center of Charlotte can also treat brown spots from unwanted sun damage and veins. Vein Center of Charlotte provides a variety of aesthetic treatments including laser spider vein, spider vein injections, treatment/surgery of unsightly varicose veins, and weight loss program.
