Laser Hair Removal

Dr. Rosenbach’s practice has 20+ years experience with laser hair removal. As an expert in lasers, Dr. Rosenbach’s advances in laser hair removal have been taught at both medical conferences and medical schools. Dr. Rosenbach has the expertise required to negotiate the fine balance between under treatment and over treatment. The goal is for patients to get the best results in the fewest number of treatments with an emphasis on safety.

The Process

Our office uses the most powerful alexandrite hair treatment laser manufactured in the US, the Light Age Zenith Laser. This laser works by passing under the skin and heating up the source of the hairs at the follicle. During the initial consultation, Dr. Rosenbach designs the treatment himself, often choosing different laser settings for different areas of the body–even in a single individual.

Dr. Rosenbach’s precise laser settings are then given to either our PA, Samantha Zarling, or our nurse, Gail Romoff, to carry out the treatment. Both Samantha and Gail are top laser operators in the field, personally trained by Dr. Rosenbach. They have considerable expertise in seeing how the laser interacts with the skin. If a patient has surprisingly delicate skin, Dr. Rosenbach himself will be called into the room to adjust the settings whenever necessary.

When it comes to laser hair removal, we treat the underarms, bikini, legs, as well as many other areas with unwanted hair. The total number of treatments vary depending on the areas of unwanted hair. Patients typically come in for 4+ treatments spaced out around eight weeks apart.
