Hair Removal

Hair Removal

Hair removal can be attempted with several methods: waxing, plucking, depilatories, electrolysis, and lasers. Our highly skilled aestheticians perform all of our waxing services. Dr. Massinople performs and supervises hair removal with the laser. Only lasers have long-term effect. Hair removal lasers target chromophores (usually melanin) within the hair follicle, thereby destroying hair during its growth phase. This process of selective thermolysis only destroys the actively growing hair which is on average 20% of hairs, therefore requiring repeat treatment at monthly intervals. There usually will be some persistent hairs but far reduced. The most common lasers used in hair removal are Nd-Yag (Altus Cool Glide® and Candela GentleYAG®), Ruby (Epitouch® and Epilaser®), Alexandrite (Candela Gentlelase Plus®), and Diode (Coherent Light Sheer®). Dr. Park prefers the Diode for fast, relatively painless hair removal but also offers the ND-Yag for certain hair and skin types.

Important Announcement

Due to COVID-19, MPRSD and the Med Spa will be closed indefinitely beginning March 30th, 2020. Both Dr. Park and Dr. Rebowe will only be seeing post-operative patients, patients with pressing issues, and will continue working hospital consults and ER coverage. However, during this time we will not be seeing new elective patients. Staff will reach out to cancel appointments and notify patients, and will be reaching out to reschedule when we are back in the office.

We always do our best to stay available to our patients. If the normal communication systems break down during this crisis, Dr. Park should be reachable at drchrispark@gmail.com and Dr. Rebowe at drrebowe@gmail.com. Immediate availability cannot be assumed during these unpredictable times so do not email with urgent issues. Urgent issues need direct communication with a provider either through the office or if necessary, your nearest emergency room.
