Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses a laser, or a concentrated beam of light, to get rid of hair in different areas of the body. The beam of highly concentrated light is shot into the hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light, resulting in destruction of the hair follicle.
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic porcedures in the United States. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
The laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hair follicles at the same time.Book Appoinment

The specific number of sessions will depend on a few things:
Since treatments will require multiple sessions, we would recommend scheduling a few sessions at a time, to suit your schedule and flexibility.
Preparing for Treatment
For each treatment you will wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam. We may shave the site again if necessary.
We will press a hand-held laser device onto your skin, a cooling device on the tip of the device will be used to protect your skin and lessen the risk of side affects.
The beam will pass through your skin to the hair follicles. The intense heat from the laser beam will damage the hair follicle, which inhibits hair growth. You might feel a warm pinprick or a sensation of cold. This may be uncomfortable for some, but shouldn’t be painful.
You may notice redness and swelling for a few hours after a session. To reduce discomfort you can apply ice to the treated area.
During the process of laser hair removal it is extremely important to avoid sunlight exposure including tanning beds for six weeks or more.
Laser hair removal is considered a low-risk treatment option for hair removal. Some side effects of laser hair removal include:
Hair follicles will not shed immediately, however you will notice hair follicles falling out or shedding over a period of days to weeks after your first session. Some may experience continued hair growth because hair follicles grow at different cycles, and the laser hair removal system works best on new-growth stages for the hair. This is why we recommend a few sessions to reach hair reduction goals.
We recommend patients doing maintenance laser treamtent’s for long-term hair reduction.
