Laser Hair Removal

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is a high-tech method of permanent hair reduction on most areas of the body. Freeing you from tweezing, waxing, bleaching and shaving. Areas of the body that are treatable include: Face, Arms, Legs, Back, Abdomen, Axilla (under arms), and the Bikini area.

How Does It Work?

The laser delivers a controlled amount of intense energy to the targeted areas, safely and effectively destroying follicles without harming the skin around them.

Longer wave lengths allow for treatments on all skin types, but the procedure works best on hair with pigment. People with blonde, white or gray hair would not be a candidate for laser treatments.

Lasers can only destroy hair follicles while they are in the growth phase, so the frequency of your treatments will depend on the body area you are treating. Although most areas can be treated in as few as 6 treatments, the number of treatments required varies and depends on skin type and hair color as well as the body area being treated.
