Laser hair removal is a safe and an effective way to eliminate unwanted hair anywhere on your body, including your:

    ♦ Face                             ♦ Legs

    ♦ Neck                            ♦ Buttocks

    ♦ Chest                          ♦  Thighs

    ♦ Back                            ♦ Pubic area

    ♦ Arms

Unlike other forms of hair removal such as shaving, waxing and plucking, laser hair removal is often permanent and long lasting.  During a laser hair removal procedure, our aesthetician targets the follicles without compromising or damaging surrounding skin and pores.

WHO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR THIS TREATMENT?

If you are an adolescent or adult without a sunburn or tan who is interested in the elimination of hair on their body, you would be a good candidate for laser hair treatment.  Our laser is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin and most hair colors.  Prior to a treatment session, we perform a small patch test to see how the individual responds to the laser to ensure optimal results in long term hair reduction.

HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?

To remove unwanted hair, the laser uses high energy light to target melanin in the hair shafts.  The heat is transferred to the hair follicle causing it to become inflamed.  This process ultimately stops the regrowth of hair.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?

Laser hair removal is safe and effectictive.  Waxing and plucking can cause ingrown hairs that can cause acne with the possibility of scar formation. Laser hair removal does not cause allergic reaction or ingrown hairs.  Additionally, our treatment works much faster compared with electrolysis.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Hair follicles and hair differ depending on where they are on the body.  Many factors affect the hair growth cycle including ethnicity, age, hormones, weight and metabolism.  Therefore, it may take multiple treatments to achieve results in certain anatomical areas.  Other areas might require fewer treatment sessions.  Some patients require touch ups once or twice a year after the initial series of treatments is complete.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

Most patients feel and experience only a slight momentary "snap" at the site of treatment.  No anesthesia is required before the procedure.

WHAT TYPE OF RESULTS WILL I SEE?

Following each treatment you will notice that the hair grows back slowly and there is less hair.  If the hair does grow back it is much finer and finally goes away all together.  Results are much smoother without hair, stubble or razor bumps.

IS THERE DOWNTIME ASSICIATED WITH THIS PROCEDURE?

No, patients may resume normal activities and return to work following a laser hair removal session.
