Laser hair removal offers a safe and comfortable way to remove unwanted bodyhair.Unlike other hair removal procedures that focus on individual hairs, laser technology is able to treatlarge areas of hair at once. The laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle transmitting heat to the entire follicle. Because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, patients with dark hair respond best to treatment. Patients with blonde or gray hair do not respond to treatment. By using a laser with the correct wavelength, using a cooling device and adjusting the treatment level, most skin types can be treated safely.

Laser hair removal requires 6 to 10 treatment sessions to achieve the optimal cosmetic outcome. Treatments are scheduled 6 weeks apart to maximize targeting hair during the active phase of the three phases of hair growth.

What to expect:

  • No waxing, plucking, and threading 2 weeks before treatment, it is OK to shave
  • No suntanning before treatments
  • No downtime
  • Permanent reduction in hair volume
