Laser Hair Removal
Tired of Shaving? Tweezing? Waxing? Plucking?
Laser hair removal provides a fast, easy solution for hair reduction, allowing you to look and feel your best without all the hassle.*
During our laser hair removal treatments, we use advance technology to provide lasting freedom from unwanted hair. It is a safe and effective approach to hair reduction for men and women. It is fast, easy and FDA-cleared.*
Lasers work by emitting a specialized light that is passed through the skin and targets the melanin (color) in the hair follicle, damaging the follicle and removing the hair.*
What areas can be treated?
We can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.*
The benefits for Laser Hair Removal.
Laser hair removal can work for almost everyone, including all skin colors and most hair types. For men, laser hair removal is great for permanently reducing chest and back hair for a cleaner, younger look. For women, it’s a great alternative to creams and waxing for reducing hair on the face and body, including delicate areas around the lips and the bikini line.*
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
Laser hair removal is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. Your provider will determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.*
How does it work?
Light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue.*
How long does it take?
Laser hair removal treatments take just minutes for small areas and about a half hour to an hour for larger areas.*
How many treatments will I need?
Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, but actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Therefore, most areas require 4-6 treatments but the number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors such as your hair’s thickness, the area treated, and your hair’s growth cycle. Our specialists can help tailor a plan just for you.*
What will the treatment feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.*
How quickly will I recover?
You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.*
What happens after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, the area may appear a bit red or swollen. These affects may last up to 24 hours after treatment. Three to seven days after treatment, you may experience what seems to be re-growth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment, and are not re-growing. Between treatments, you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.*
What are the possible side effects?
Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn may occur in some patients. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Our specialist will review the benefits and risks of treatment during your free consultation.*
