Eliminate hair from virtually anywhere on your body.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal uses concentrated light to target hair follicles, reducing or eliminating hair growth in treated areas. Unlike electrolysis hair removal, which sends an electric current through the hair down to the follicle, laser hair removal uses pigment within the hairs to conduct the laser’s thermal energy directly into the hair follicles. Laser hair removal allows you to effectively and precisely target unwanted hair without damaging surrounding tissues.

Your Ideal Solution to Unwanted Hair

Your Laser Hair Removal Consultation

Your specialist will assess your basic medical history and skin condition and discuss your treatment goals. Based on your individual concerns, we will create a personalized treatment plan for the elimination of the targeted hair.

The energy of our laser works on hair pigment, much like the sun is absorbed by darker colors. So, laser hair removal is ideal for people with darker hair. The laser operates in the near-infrared wavelength, selectively damaging the follicles for a significant reduction of targeted hairs.

During Your Treatment

Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure

During the session, you may feel a series of snaps against your skin, similar to a “rubber band snap.” A topical numbing agent can be applied to make the treatment more comfortable. Redness and mild skin sensitivity can be expected after each treatment, with symptoms resolving, usually within an hour. You can expect to see the treated hairs fall off over the next one to three weeks.

What to Expect After Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

The laser hair removal treatment can only target active hair follicles. Since there is no method to discern the growth cycle of individual hair follicles, the procedure must be repeated multiple times over a period of months. Patients see improved results with each successive treatment. It is important to attend all scheduled treatment sessions to see the highest degree of hair removal. Skipping appointments can result in requiring additional laser hair removal treatments. Extensive evidence confirms that long-term hair removal is achieved when two to five additional treatments are staggered to account for the growth cycles.

In just a few short treatments, you can achieve long-lasting smoothness and confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

While laser hair removal permanently damages hair follicles, you may need to undergo maintenance treatments to achieve the best possible long-term results. 

Multiple sessions are needed to ensure each hair is treated during its growth phase. Sometimes, without a full course of treatment, some hair follicles may be missed during this phase, increasing the chances of regrowth.
