"I personally do all the consultations, and I have two certified nurses who do the treatments," says Dr. Jeffrey Gold of Laser Body Solutions. "In other places you don't get to see a doctor at all. I think that's the biggest single factor that separates us." Dr. Gold can work miracles with his lasers. For hair removal, the secret weapon is the Yag laser. The laser energy is absorbed by hair follicles, and the heat burns it away. It feels kind of like a rubber band snap, but is entirely tolerable, more so than, say, waxing. "We've been doing it the longest in Hamden, and the whole New Haven area really," says Gold. "We were the first to start it in 2003." On average it takes five treatments, because hair grows in cycles, and you can only kill the ones that are actively growing (about a third of them at any given time). And they can do it on just about anyplace on the human body. Just no bottoms-of-eyebrows or eyelashes. Anything else is fair game. (Upper lip and chin, underarms, bikini zones and men's backs are the most common. Other laser-based services Gold provides include spider vein removal, skin tightening, sun spot removal, acne scar removal, tattoo removal, fat removal and even hair restoration, not to mention lasik surgery (a mild treatment in which they don't cut the cornea), which the doctor also specializes in. "Just about anything you can do cosmetically with non-invasive lasers," says Gold.laserbody.com
