Laser treatment for permanent hair removal or reduction virtually eliminates the need for future, painful, wax, threading, and other methods of hair removal.

Our permanent laser hair removal / reduction treatment is available for both men and women and can be performed on almost all areas of the body except around the eyes. Areas most treated include the upper lip and facial area, neck, arms, legs, underarms, and bikini line. Laser hair removal treatments leave you with silky smooth skin

How does the process work?

Permanent hair removal or reduction is achieved by disabling the cells responsible for growing new hair.

Many factors influence the growth of hair, including ethnicity, age, gender, weight, health and medications. Hair also grows in cycles, which makes it difficult to predict how many treatments will be required to produce the best possible results.

Our lasers produce light at specific wavelengths to target the pigment in the hair follicles. The pigment absorbs the light in the form of heat and are disabled. The cooling mechanisms in the laser head ensure ultimate comfort for our patients during the procedure. Large areas can be treated at one time without great discomfort. For example, a man's entire back can be treated in about 30 minutes, and smaller areas such as underarms in much less.

Is the laser hair removal permanent?

The laser heats the pigment in the hair follicles and disables or slows the growth of new hair. As hair grows in cycles, it may be necessary to have multiple treatments to achieve the best results. Normally, three treatments are required.

The potential for hair regrowth varies but, you could experience significant regrowth within about one year.

The difference between laser hair removal and electrolysis.

Laser procedures are faster and significantly less painful. Although some are less tolerant to pain than others, most people describe the laser treatment as giving a warm sensation with little actual discomfort. Electrolysis is described as being felt as a quick slap against the skin.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Lasers have been used by physicians for about ten years as a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair. During this time no major long-term side effects have been reported.

Which areas can of the body can be treated with the laser hair removal system?

With the exception of the area around the eyes, any area can be treated, including face, neck, underarms, legs, arms, back, chest, etc.

What to expect during and after treatment

The laser treatment is applied by use of a hand-held device similar to a wand. The hand-piece is moved over the skin, emitting the laser light, disabling the follicles. As the handpiece is moved over the skin, you might experience a gentle snapping or warming sensation. When the session is finished, our treatment provider will wipe away the hair loosened by the treatment. That's it.

Immediately after treatment, some people experience mild redness and/or tenderness in the areas treated. Although this normally disappears within a day, it may last a little longer but, it will not interfere with your normal activities. Other, less likely effects will be explained during your visit.
