"I've been a patient of Dr Summer Blacks for about 4 years and I would never go anywhere else. I am ALWAYS ecstatic with her work and have had Botox and Restylane filler in my cheeks and lips. Dr Black is not only a total perfectionist but she becomes a friend you feel comfortable confiding in and sharing your life with. I would recommend Dr Black to my own mother....and in fact I did! Now we are both her patients who regularly visit her for all our anti-aging facial perfecting cosmetic work."- A.R. / Google / Feb 06, 2017

"Dr. Elliott Black has years of experience and it shows in his results! - Dr. Elliott Black did my breast implants years ago. They are so natural that even my Ob-gyn couldn’t tell they were implants. I’ve also gone to Dr. Elliott Black for laser treatments and to have my eyelids done. I couldn’t be happier with the results!"- M. / RealSelf / Feb 09, 2018
Do I Qualify?
Laser hair removal works best on dark hair. Blonde, white, gray or red hair are not always the best candidates for laser hair removal. However, there are new developments every day to help address this problem for men and women with light colored hair. Keep in mind that your hair grows in cycles (rest and growth), and some hair may be in a dormant rest cycle at the time of your laser treatment and therefor will not we affected. Because laser hair removal only works on hairs that are in the growth phase, multiple sessions may be needed to treat all of the different follicles during their particular growth phase.
What to Expect
Before your laser hair removal treatment, we advise that hair be neatly trimmed. Extremely long hair is not necessarily great for this removal procedure. We will give you protective eyewear while the laser is on your skin to protect your eyes from the heat energy. Our aesthetic technician will apply a cold gel to the treatment area then test a small area of your skin to see what setting is right for you. Once the settings are selected, our tech will perform short, controlled movements with the laser as it is breaking down your hair follicles. With intense, pulsating light that we apply to your skin, the laser will target and destroy your hair follicles. This will help prevent future growth. The laser will not damage the skin or soft tissues in the area of treatment. We recommend scheduling several laser hair reduction sessions to maximize your chance of removing hair in a different cycle and see terrific results.
Depending on the size and location of your treatment area, most sessions are relatively quick and sometimes only a few minutes! Of course if you are treating the majority of the area on your legs, the sessions will a lot longer than on your chin. You can also expect no downtime, and you can go about your day as planned (most patients can return to normal activities immediately after treatment).
