Laser Hair Removal – 5 days a week – lower fees
We now offer the latest technology by Cynosure to remove unwanted hair. This new procedure is performed by Dr. McBean and professionally trained staff at a fraction of the price previously offered at our center. Because the technology is now available 5 days a week, you may schedule an appointment at your convenience. Unfortunately, traditional hair removal routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weeks, but none of them can permanently reduce hair growth like the laser.

How does it work?
To eliminate hair, the laser emits a gentle pulse of light energy that passes through the skin directly to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle destroying the hair so that it does not regrow.
Am I a viable candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is most effective for dark hair. It can be used anywhere on the body where there is unwanted hair on all types of skin – even dark skin.

Does it hurt?
This is a safe treatment causing at most, only minimal discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band. Slight redness or localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.

How many treatments are required?
Patients will see results after the first treatment however, because hair grows in cycles, optimum results may require multiple treatments depending on hair color, density and several other factors.

SmartLipo®: The Newest way to get the shape you want

Dr. McBean is one of the first physicians to offer this exciting new technology in CT. Liposuction is still the gold standard for removing unwanted areas of fatty tissue and in 2007 was the number 1 cosmetic surgical procedure performed. SmartLipo® burst onto the scene after its FDA approval in 2006 and has been featured in People Magazine and several national television programs including E! and The Early Show on CBS. It has never been easier or faster to achieve the smooth, sculpted shape you have been thinking about, all with much less pain and down time than traditional liposuction.

The most common areas are the abdomen and hips. Healthy men and women who maintain a balanced diet and exercise regularly, buy are simply unable to lose the final small areas of unwanted fatty tissue are frequent candidates. Additionally, for some patients, the goal may not be to look perfect in a bathing suit. Patients may simply wish to improve body contours to look better in every day clothing. SmartLipo® is the safest and most effective way to achieve these goals.
