Laser Hair Removal

Get Silky, Smooth Skin – Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal treatments offer semi-permanent reduction of hair growth by using laser light to target and destroy the melanin in hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. Although we achieve great results on all skin types, Laser Hair Reduction is most effective on fair-skinned candidates with dark hair. Laser Hair Reduction can take up to six sessions scheduled a month apart, but results can be permanent.

What to Expect:

While your hair may not be gone forever, you should see a noticeable reduction and won’t need to shave or wax as much before the laser treatments. Each treatment will vary in time, depending on the size of the area being treated.Smaller areas, such as the bikini or the under arm, can take as little as ten to fifteen minutes, whereas the back or leg can take up to an hour.Laser Hair Reduction can take up to six sessions scheduled a month apart, but results can be permanent.

Side Effects & The Ouch Factor of Laser Hair Removal:

Depending on the type of laser used, hair type, body area treated, and personal threshold, the discomfort level of Laser Hair Removal will vary. Don’t be alarmed, the first session generally hurts the most, and then subsides with further visits. Those with thick, dark hair will usually experience a little more pain than those with thinner hair, that’s because darker hair absorbs more of the laser light. While most people can expect a temporary rash, the discoloring will go away and leave no side effects. It is critical to follow post-treatment care as directed, do avoid other types of permanent side effects.
