Many of us have a love-hate relationship with our hair. We love it when it grows where it should, and hate it when it grows in places where we’d rather not have hair. Using advanced technology and medical precision, Dr. Vivian Bucay helps men and women enjoy the aesthetics and convenience of less hair.

Laser hair reduction could be the answer you’ve been waiting for.
Previously, your options for a more groomed appearance were limited. They produced temporary results, and they were often accompanied by skin irritation. You could shave every day, endure waxing delicate areas, or wait around while harsh depilatory cream dissolved hair. Electrolysis rendered longer lasting results. However, it was both time-consuming and painful, as this method addressed one hair follicle at a time.
Today, Dr. Vivian Bucay’s laser hair removal treatments destroy hundreds of follicles simultaneously, and treatment is well tolerated. Most patients feel a slight stinging (like being snapped with a rubber band) or warm sensation from the heat of the laser, but discomfort is mild and temporary.
Hair grows in several stages, and follicles may only be destroyed by the laser in the anagen growth stage. You’ll see improvement right away, but full resolution usually requires six or more treatment sessions several weeks apart. Your body continues to produce new hair follicles over time, so occasional touch-ups will keep you smooth and sleek.
You’ll find laser hair removal advertised at salons and mall kiosks, but for safety and optimal results, trust a qualified physician to perform or oversee treatment – after all, it is a laser, and it is your wellbeing at stake!
Melanin is a chromophore that gives color to skin and hair. Light is absorbed more quickly by dark objects than lighter ones. Safe laser hair reduction requires precisely matching the right wavelength of light to the pigmentation of skin and hair to avoid damage to surrounding tissues. For example, the process is most effective on light skin with dark hair. However, Dr. Bucay has the technology and expertise to address unwanted hair on most skin types.
