Laser Hair Removal

Are you embarrassed by areas of unwanted body hair? Are you tired of having to constantly shave, tweeze or wax these areas in order to achieve smooth, stubble-free skin?
Find out how laser hair removal can eliminate the daily chore of manually removing your unwanted body hair without irritating your skin.
What is Laser Hair Removal?

 

While shaving, tweezing and waxing are all temporary ways of removing unwanted body hair, these tedious solutions can also cause razor burn, ingrown hairs and other skin irritation. Laser hair removal, one of the most popular aesthetic treatments on the market, offers a comfortable, more permanent solution to getting rid of unwanted body hair. 

Our laser hair removal treatments restore silky smoothness to your skin with fast, convenient, and more permanent results. During the hair removal process, laser energy is delivered into the skin, where it is absorbed by the pigment in hair follicles. The energy is then converted to heat, disabling the hair follicle and preventing future regrowth of the hair shaft. This procedure only causes slight discomfort, with most patients comparing the sensation to a rubber band snapping slightly against the skin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Areas Can Be Treated with Laser Hair Removal?

 

This treatment is safe and effective for multiple areas of the body on both men and women, including the:

  • Upper lip

 

  • Face

 

  • Underarms

 

  • Arms

 

  • Chest

 

  • Legs

 

  • Back

 

  • Bikini areas

 

Men who are interested in hair removal may also have the option of thinning out areas of excessive hair growth rather than undergoing a complete removal. This option can be discussed during your consultation with our medical team.

 

When Will the Hair Be Gone?

 

As hair has three phases of growth, it may take multiple sessions before all of the hair follicles in a treated area are disabled. While it is still possible for sparse hair growth to occur after treatments, any hair that does grow back may be lighter and thinner than before.

 

Is There Any Recovery Time?

 

The skin may appear slightly flushed akin to a sunburn after treatment, which should subside within a day or so. Laser hair removal is non-ablative, meaning it does not remove skin from the surface during the procedure process. Our medical team will advise you on how many treatment sessions you may need as well as any relevant safety information that may apply to you.
