Laser Hair Removal in Asheville and Hendersonville

DermaBlue is North Carolina’s premier center for professional laser hair removal for both men and women. We believe in achieving the best possible results for our clients. That’s why we utilize genuine laser technology, not just an intense pulse light (IPL) device.  

Lutronic lasers deliver a concentrated beam of light specifically targeting the pigment (melanin) in hair follicles. This targeted approach directly damages the follicle, leading to permanent hair reduction with fewer treatment sessions compared to IPL, which scatters light with less precision. The hair laser we use also has two different types of wavelengths so it can be safely used on all skin types and tones. 

With over a decade of experience in the field, our medical esthetician is a seasoned professional using cutting-edge Lutronic lasers for exceptional hair removal results. Beyond expertise, these advanced lasers prioritize your comfort and safety. Featuring a unique cooling system, they significantly minimize discomfort during treatment.

Laser Treatments for Men and Women

For many men and women unwanted hair is a nuisance, and laser hair removal is a gentle and long-lasting solution for removing unwanted hair. Laser hair removal offers unmatched convenience and long-lasting results compared to traditional methods like shaving, waxing, or tweezing. These methods can be time-consuming, require frequent upkeep, and often lead to irritation, ingrown hairs, or razor bumps. 

Laser hair removal works on any area of the body where smooth skin is desired: underarms, face, neck, legs, shoulders, back, chest, bikini line, and arms

Laser Hair Removal for Men

For men, laser hair removal can target areas like the back, chest, groin, backside, shoulders, and face, offering a permanent solution to unwanted hair growth. Facial laser hair removal in particular can also help manage ingrown beard hairs or achieve a cleaner neckline and cheekline. 

Laser Hair Removal for Women

For women, laser hair removal can address unwanted hair growth on legs, underarms, bikini lines, and other areas. It can be particularly beneficial for those with sensitive skin or coarse hair that tends to become ingrown. 

Who is Eligible For Laser Hair Removal?

Professional laser hair removal works best on hair with pigment (color), as it works by targeting the melanin within the hair follicle. Individuals with dark hair generally experience long-lasting, almost permanent hair reduction. This is because the contrast between dark hair and lighter skin makes it easier for the laser to target the follicle effectively. 

Unfortunately, gray, white, or red hair lacks sufficient pigment to be detected by the laser. Therefore, laser hair removal is not a suitable permanent solution for these hair colors. 

Most people require multiple laser hair treatments, but different hair colors and types can require more. 

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

All lasers for laser hair removal are not created equal. At DermaBlue, we use an actual laser, NOT an intense pulse light device. This ensures the best laser hair removal results with fewer treatments. The laser we use has a large spot size and works quickly, to cover more area in a shorter time.  

A minimum of five treatments are usually needed and touch-ups are usually performed once or twice a year. You will experience a noticeable reduction in unwanted body hair with every treatment. 

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

When you come to your laser hair removal treatment appointment; the area being treated must be cleanly shaven and out of the sun prior to treatment. You should avoid waxing, tweezing, and any other topical hair removal prior to treatment. If the follicle has been removed the treatment is ineffective.  

You will be sun sensitive after laser hair removal treatments, so we recommend the use of sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF, before and after treatment. Hair in the treated area will begin to fall out over the next week or two. Some will fall out immediately. It is important to time the hair removal treatments in the right treatment interval to get the best possible results.  Your technician will review this with you.  

A minimum of five treatments are usually needed and touch-ups are usually performed once or twice a year.
