About the Procedure
Permanent hair removal is possible with cosmetic laser surgery. Many people are faced with the problem of unwanted hair. Up until only a short time ago, there were few options for people suffering with problem unwanted hair. The methods of hair removal were often painful, and quite time consuming. There was shaving, waxing, and tweezing to offer temporary relief, and electrolysis for more permanent reduction of unwanted hair.
Laser Hair Treatment
Dr. Hiatt, was the first to bring permanent hair reduction (LHR) to the valley. By using IPL and Diode Laser Technology, his patients are enjoying permanent hair reduction have given up waxing, tweezing, shaving, and electrolysis. The laser safely destroys the hair by producing a beam of highly concentrated light, which passes through the skin and targets only the hair, and hair follicle.
Hair grows in cycles. Each follicle grows hair for a period of time and then eventually it stops and falls out. The hair follicle rests before starting the cycle again. At any given time, one has hair in a variety of growth stages. The laser treats hair follicles only in their active growth phase, therefore more than one treatment is required. Most patients elect to have a minimum of three to six laser sessions, and some need and request more.

At this time, you may inquire about laser hair removal cost and have all your questions/concerns addressed.

The Science of Laser Surgery
Dr. Hiatt brought Arizona laser hair removal to the valley. His office was the first to embrace this exciting new technology in this area. Now, some of Dr. Hiatt’s patients are giving up painful hair removal methods like waxing, shaving, and tweezing. By using DiodeLaser Technology, Dr. Hiatt can reduce the amount of unwanted hair on many parts of the body. The laser destroys hair permanently and safely by using a highly concentrated beam of light to destroy the follicle and the hair.
Because each hair grows in a slightly different cycle, you may require more than one laser hair removal treatment. At any time, your hair is in a growth or rest stage of its life cycle. When a hair is finished growing, it falls out and the follicle rests before starting on a new one. The laser technology is only capable of treating the hair follicle that is in its growth stage. You may find that you require three or four treatments before you no longer notice the unwanted hair.
In addition to hair removal, laser treatments can be used for tattoo removal. Dr Hiatt also performs photofacial treatments and CO2 full face laser procedures. These can help provide patients with a smoother, more refreshed facial appearance.
