Laser hair removal can help you remove unwanted hair, even eliminating the need for waxing, shaving, tweezing and threading. It has been among the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States since its development in 1998. Laser hair removal works by using a concentrated beam of light which destroys the hair follicle without causing any harm to the skin.

Since the laser focuses on the melanin to destroy hair follicles, the best candidates tend to have darker hair color. This contrast allows the laser to easily target the areas. The laser has a difficult time reaching the follicles of lighter hair because it lacks melanin to attract it. However, this does not necessarily mean those with lighter hair cannot get laser hair removal. It all depends on each individual case.
If you have a tan from the sun, lotions, or tanning bed you should let that fade before considering laser hair removal treatments. However, we do offer the most popular laser technology, the Nd:YAG , which is designed specifically for tan to dark skin tones.
Size of the Treatment Area
Laser hair removal is great for areas hard-to-reach with a razor and large areas such as the arms, back, and legs. The only body part we cannot laser or shape are the eyebrows, but we can treat the uni-brow.
Multiple Sessions are Required
Laser hair removal is not a “one and done” kind of treatment and usually requires a series of treatment sessions at our office to get the desired results. Packages come with a series of six sessions and are spaced every five-to-six weeks apart.
Most of the feedback we get from clients is the noticeable hair reduction as well as reduced time spent on your everyday beauty routine.
