VIRTUALLY PAINLESS HAIR REMOVAL
Laser Hair Reduction for Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square, Main Line, and the Philadelphia Area
Tired of waxing, plucking or shaving daily? Now you have a long-term, virtually painless hair removal option in the Philadelphia area. Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa offers laser hair reduction to patients who want results without the nicks, cuts, or irritation associated with waxing, plucking and shaving.
Laser hair removal can treat a large area of skin at one time, making it faster and more cost effective than other hair removal methods. Lasers send an energy beam of light through the skin that is absorbed by dark pigment, melanin, present in the shaft of the hair follicles, thereby destroying them. The "gold standard" Diode laser provides lasting hair reduction of all pigmented (dark) hair on all skin types.

Virtually Painless Hair Removal Details
Over the past decade, women and men have enjoyed the freedom of life without unwanted hair. However, they experienced discomfort in reaching that hair-free state with laser hair removal. Even if clients routinely applied a topical anesthetic prior to undergoing laser hair removal, this discomfort was the main reason patients resisted or did not continue treatment... that is, until now.
Now you can enjoy virtually pain-free hair removal with the industry-leading Diode hair removal laser at Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa. This system launched a new era in hair removal that reduces hair safely and effectively without the pain and discomfort of the past. It works effectively on both light and dark skin—something not possible with every laser hair removal system.
At Cirillo Cosmetic, our virtually painless laser system uses a sweeping "in motion" technique that eliminates missed or skipped areas. The comprehensive coverage leaves faces, legs, arms, backs, and stomachs smooth and hair-free. Many clients have compared their experience with our laser to a hot stone massage!
How Does Virtually Painless Hair Removal Work?
The Diode laser's innovative Super Hair Removal (SHR) mode provides the ideal combination of fast, efficient, and pain-free hair removal. The motion mode uses the optimal hair removal wavelength for deep penetration into the hair follicle and enables virtually painless hair removal because of the "in-motion" technique.
A series of low energy, high-repetition pulses increases the temperature of both the hair follicle and the surrounding nourishing tissues. This gradual, "in-motion" heat delivery system uses specific targets in the surrounding tissue as reservoirs to effectively heat up the hair follicle. Along with the heat energy absorbed directly by the hair follicle, the "in-motion" system damages the follicle and prevents regrowth. Furthermore, the sapphire-tipped hand piece provides contact cooling to the skin's surface, thereby preventing superficial heat injury.
Safe for all skin types, this virtually pain-free hair removal system available at Cirillo Cosmetic provides many benefits, including lasting hair reduction, little or no skin irritation, and few side effects.
What to Know Before Virtually Painless Hair Removal
Even though follicles are damaged by a laser hair removal treatment, they should be intact prior to the start of a session. This means any activities that would alter the normal, healthy function of a follicle or the skin around it should be avoided in the weeks before your appointment. Do not pluck or wax any hairs in the area to be treated. Also, avoid any activities that can lighten the hairs themselves (such as bleaching) or darken the skin past its normal tone (such as tanning). We always recommend wearing a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 to protect against ultraviolet radiation when exposed to the sun. Your skin never forgets the amount of UV radiation deposited!
Why Would I Need Multiple Virtually Painless Hair Removal Sessions?
Laser hair removal impacts the follicle directly at the root, causing pigmented cells there to heat up, but it works only on follicles that are in an active growing phase.
Since all follicles cycle through multiple phases, approximately 50 to 85 percent of the follicles in an area may be actively growing at a given time. This is known as the anagen phase.
Next comes the catagen phase, when a follicle prepares to eject its hair by shrinking and cutting the hair shaft off from its nourishing blood supply.
In the following telogen phase, the newly shrunken follicle rests and stores up energy for its return to active growth.
Finally, emerging new growth causes the inactive hair to fall out in the exogen phase, freeing the follicle to cycle back to the anagen phase.
In order to impact the greatest number of anagen follicles possible in an area, laser hair removal treatments need to be spaced out over several months. This allows telogen phase hairs to cycle back to anagen phase, where they are vulnerable to the laser energy.

Virtually Painless Hair Removal Results
With the Diode treatment, hair is effectively reduced in the targeted area. This means that the damaged follicles are no longer able to function as they should, limiting hair growth for months to years. If hairs re-grow in an area treated by laser hair removal, they are typically much lighter and finer in appearance and can be re-treated with the laser.
For patients who shave multiple times a week—or even daily—the results afforded by laser hair removal are a significant time saver. This treatment also allows men and women to virtually eliminate tweezing and waxing, as Diode can be used virtually anywhere unwanted hair grows.
