Laser Hair Removal

Our on-site lasers can permanently reduce or remove unwanted hair that is problematic for both men and women. The laser beam targets the pigment in the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal can be used on small areas such as the chin or upper lip, larger areas like an underarm or bikini region, or even sizable surfaces such as a leg or back.

Laser hair removal therapy is FDA approved for permanent hair reduction. Facial hair goes through an active growing phase every three to six weeks and non-facial hair every eight to 10 weeks. This is the only phase in which hair responds to treatment. Most patients will see a remarkable reduction in both the density and rate of growth within two to three weeks of the first treatment. With subsequent treatments, permanent hair reduction is generally achieved.

The duration of your individual treatment will depend on the area being treated. Typically, several sessions are necessary to capture a large portion of the hair follicles at various growth stages. The treatment can be associated with a slight stinging sensation but you may return to work and other daily activities immediately following a treatment.
