Safe, pain-free hair removal
Laser hair removal treatments are pain-free with no irritation, unpleasant sensation, or discomfort of any kind, all you feel is a cool sensation. Our treatments get rid of exposed hair as well as stubborn ingrown hair and is safe for all skin types and hair colors.
During the laser hair removal process, a laser passes through the skin to each individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair which inhibits future growth in that region. Most patients need several laser hair removal treatments in order to provide an extended hair-free period.

How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal works by aiming a concentrated beam of light at unwanted hair on the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, or other area of the body. With every pulse of light, follicles are targeted and destroyed to the point where future growth is inhibited. Just as sunlight is attracted to dark pavement or clothing, the laser’s energy is attracted to the pigment of the hair. For this reason, laser hair removal has traditionally worked best on those with dark hair and fair skin. However, new technology in laser hair removal has made it possible for those with a variety of hair types and complexions to see great results.
What can I expect from the procedure?
Just before your laser hair removal procedure, the hair in the treatment area will be trimmed to just a few millimeters. A cooling gel will be applied to protect the outer layers of your skin and to help the laser light penetrate the hair follicles. During the session, you won’t feel any pain or irritation.
For a couple of days after a laser hair removal treatment, your skin may be red and tender. Cool compresses and moisturizer will help soothe any discomfort. In the following weeks, the treated hair will begin fall out on its own. It’s important to avoid sun exposure and to wear sunscreen for the following month to prevent changes in color to the treated skin.
Will I really never have to shave or wax again?
While you will see results after the first treatment, most patients need a series of laser hair removal sessions for an extended hair-free period. Hair grows in cycles, and each follicle needs to be caught in the growth phase in order for the treatment to be successful. Finishing the entire series of treatments is crucial for long-lasting hair reduction and enjoying smooth, sexy skin year round.
