Laser Hair Removal

Reduce unwanted hair with the assistance of our trained professionals and the capabilities of the latest and most comprehensive laser hair reduction systems. Laser treatments attack the hair at the follicle thus making it difficult for hair to regrow.

Although there are many temporary treatments, including tweezing, shaving, using depilatory creams and waxing, to remove unwanted hair, patients seeking more permanent and less irritating/painful methods are frequently good candidates for laser hair removal. Through what is a safe and usually painless procedure, hair can be removed from nearly any area of the body (the eye area is an exception because of the possibility of serious eye damage).

What is Hair Removal Treatment?

Laser hair reduction is a modern way of removing any unwanted hair on your body. It’s performed by a licensed aesthetican who will begin by cleansing the treated area before using a laser to focus highly-intense light onto the individual hair follicles, causing the pigment to absorb the light which then destroys the follicle. During the treatment, you and your aesthetican will wear protective eyewear. While the procedure is underway, the skin is held taught in order for the laser to treat the area of concern. You may feel some discomfort while the undergoing the treatment, although most patients only experience a feeling similar to a rubber band ‘snap’. Most patients require a few different appointments in order to achieve optimal results. Typically, 8 treatments are needed in total, spaced at around 4-6 weeks apart. Laser hair removal is fairly quick, but the length of the procedure changes due to a specific area.

Hair Removal Maintenance

After undergoing laser hair reduction treatment, your aestheticain will give you detailed aftercare instructions. Typically, there is no downtime associated with laser hair reduction, but you may experience some minor swelling and redness immediately following treatment. It’s best to stay out of direct sunlight before and after your treatment in order to avoid hyperpigmentation and not damage the treated area. Our staff can recommend the right sunscreen to use. Other after-care instructions including avoiding extreme temperatures following the treatment and not shaving the area until it is completely healed.
