Alexandrite treatment for unwanted hair and spots

Alexandrite treatment for unwanted hair and spots - Chicago Dermatologist ArticleAlexandrite treatment for unwanted hair and spots - Chicago Dermatology ArticleThe Apogee Alexandrite 5500 is one of the most reliable lasers to combat unwanted dark hairs and dark spots on the skin, such as freckles, sunspots, melasma or age spots.
The Alexandrite (Alex) laser uses a 755 nm wavelength, which is absorbed highly by melanin in the skin and hair follicles. The Alex laser works by emitting powerful laser energy into the targeted tissue ( pigmented lesion or hair follicle) that causes subsequent lightening to the lesions and destruction of the follicle without damaging the neighboring tissue.

For laser hair reduction 4-8 treatments may be necessary as the laser is only able to destroy hair follicles that are in the active growth phase. Because, hairs exist in three cycles (active growing or anagen; transitional or catagen; resting or telogen), several treatments are needed to adequently catch different hairs in the active cycle. After each treatment you will notice finer, lighter hairs with slower re-growth to each area treated.read more

Achieve PERMANENT correction of these indicators of aging during a safe and convenient office visit.

Artefill® is composed of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres suspended in purified bovine collagen. PMMA has been safely used for 6 decades in implantable medical devices.
