TABLE OF CONTENTS

Are you tired of tweezing, waxing, or shaving to remove unwanted hair? Laser hair removal is an option worth considering. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It is a gentle and long-lasting solution for unwanted hair. Laser hair works on all areas of the body where smooth skin is desired: face, neck, underarms, neck, legs, shoulders, back, chest, bikini line, and arms.

Which type of laser hair removal should I get?

All lasers for hair removal are not created equal. At Dermablue, we use an actual laser, not an intense pulse light device. This laser ensures the best hair removal results with fewer treatments. A minimum of five treatments are usually needed along with touch-ups a couple times per year. Results vary from one person to the next, based on factors such as hormone hair growth, hair type, color of hair, and ethnic background.

Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal works best for those with dark hair. Gray, white, blonde, or red hair cannot be as well detected by the laser. Laser hair removal can still be conducted on lighter colored hair, however it would result in temporary hair removal instead of permanent.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Benefits of laser hair removal include:

  • Precision: Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
  • Speed: Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time.
  • Predictability: Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of five to seven sessions, with occasional touch ups.

Packages and pricing vary for laser hair removal, and treatment intervals differ depending on the area of focus. Contact us today, or schedule a FREE cosmetic consultation online directly. We will help you to find the right package that works for you!

Botox®

BOTOX® and Dysport are neuromodulators. These types of facial injectables target the muscles responsible for facial expressions. By temporarily blocking nerve signals, they relax these muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions.

Fillers

Cosmetic fillers offer a non-surgical way to enhance facial features and restore youthful volume. Since many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss, fillers can help replace what is lost to help restore a more youthful appearance. We offer the complete line of Juvederm Fillers.

Injectables

Aesthetic injectables are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that involve injecting various substances beneath the skin to achieve a range of aesthetic goals. They can target aspects of facial aging, addressing concerns like wrinkles and fine lines, loss of facial volume, & uneven skin texture.

CoolSculpting® Elite

CoolSculpting is a proven technology that is safe and effective. It is proven to work extremely well and rivals surgical results with little to no downtime. Cryolipolysis, or freezing fat; gently and effectively reduces unwanted fat by up to 25% or more per session. Freeze fat & tone muscle.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a commonly used cosmetic procedure that utilizes concentrated beams of highly focused light to eradicate hair on various parts of the body. This method targets the hair follicles, damaging them to the extent that hair is unlikely to grow in that spot again.

Laser Resurfacing

Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment available for wrinkle reduction. At Dermablue, we brought the best possible technology for laser resurfacing to Asheville using the CORE CO2 fractional laser. Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment.
