What is Laser Hair Removal?
If you are sick and tired of tweezing, shaving, or waxing the unwanted hairs on your body, then laser hair removal is the definitive solution for you. This treatment is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures to date. The laser concentrates on the hair follicles which is what destroys the hair and prevents it from growing. In a matter of sessions this will have lasting and permanent effects.

How Does the Laser Treatment Work for Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cometic procedure that involves a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove hair. During the treatment, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. The light energy used is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs. The procedure effectively delays the hair growth, and depending on your skin, some areas can be permanently free of unwanted hair growth. Multiple sessions are required for results, and some maintenance treatments might be needed as well. The laser hair removal treatment is successfully used on all skin types.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prepare for laser treatment?
Please do not tan, wax, tweeze, or apply any creams before your appointment. We simply ask that you shave the areas that will be undergoing the hair removal treatment.
How often do I need to come in for sessions?
We recommend coming in every 4-6 weeks until you notice that most of the hair is not growing back. After you have completed multiple sessions, you can come in twice a year or as needed for maintenance treatments.
Can I come in for laser hair removal treatments if I am pregnant?
We advise that you do not get laser hair removal if you are pregnant. The treatment is safe, but there are not enough studies that investigate the effects of laser treatments on unborn children. So, it is best to play it safe.
Is it true that blonde and grey hairs do not respond well with laser treatments?
Yes, it is true, blonde and grey hair does not have a high success rate with laser hair removal because the hairs lack pigment in the hair follicle. However, with our modern technology we have been able to treat more clients with light hair pigments better than before.
