The stubble, the bumps, the nicks, the time… what if you could be done with shaving and waxing?
Laser Hair Removal (also know as Laser Hair Reduction) uses specially designed laser technology to permanently remove unwanted hair. The laser emits a gentle beam of light over the area where you want the hair removed. The light destroys the hair follicle, preventing any future hair growth. Only the hair follicles will absorb the light, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed and undamaged.
Once a hair follicle is destroyed, it cannot regenerate or produce new hair … ever! That’s why laser hair reduction is a PERMANENT solution to the problem of unwanted hair. Please read our FAQs for further details or request more information below.
What to Consider
Laser hair removal is today’s most popular method of removing unsightly or unwanted hair. It is truly fabulous! Although it has proven to be very effective and safe, it still has side effects and risks just like any other elective cosmetic procedure. Patient’s individual skin conditions, hair density, skin color, and the type of laser used play a role in final results.
Side effects are quite minor and usually temporary such as perifollicular edema (swelling of the dead hair follicle that looks like an ant bite) and erythema (redness). However, there are risks and side effects that can be more serious. Therefore, it is important to know about these side effects and their causes, so you may decrease your chances of experiencing them during or after treatments.
*Results may vary.
What to Expect
Your skin contains hundreds of thousands of hair follicles, so permanently removing hair often requires multiple sessions of laser treatment. Each session will last between five minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the area being treated and the thickness of your hair.
Despite what you may have heard, the pain associated with laser hair removal is quite minimal. Many people do not feel the treatments at all. Our rule of thumb is, if it hurts, tell us! We can readjust our machine to make the experience as pleasant as possible for you.
