With today’s laser technology, hair removal doesn’t have to be a constant battle. Laser Hair Removal is a treatment that helps to eliminate unwanted body hair by disabling hair follicles in their active growth state. It is a very popular treatment among women and men, and is a safe and effective way to see a permanent reduction in your hair’s natural growth. With Laser Hair Removal you can have smooth, flawless skin that you can be proud of.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

A powerful light emitted by a laser is absorbed primarily by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The more pigment your hair has, the better the absorption rate. The laser pulse is only active for a fraction of a second, and the sensation can be described as a warm rubber band snap. The absorption then disables the hair follicle, resulting in the hair shedding.

What can I expect?

Prior to treatment, our clients have a personal consultation to determine your hair removal plan. This might look different depending on your desired treatment area, as well as your hair’s pigment. For your personal best results, you might need 4 to 6 treatments, spaced around 6 weeks apart.

 

During treatment, the technician will apply a hand-held laser device to your skin. This laser beam will pass through your skin to the hair follicles. The heat from the laser beam damages these hair follicles, inhibiting hair growth. Some discomfort in the skin is possible, and you’ll likely feel a sensation of cold from the cooling device or gel. Depending on the area being treated – such as your upper lip or your back – treatment can last between a few minutes to several hours.

 

Laser Hair Removal is a long-used and safe technique, with minimal side effects. You may notice redness and swelling for the first few hours after treatment. You will be recommended to apply ice on treated areas. There is also hair shedding in the first few days and up to 2 weeks after treatment.

 

Sun protection before and after Laser Hair Removal is essential.

What are the benefits?

  • Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time.
  • Predictability. Most patients have permanent hair reduction in the treated areas, after an average of three to eight sessions.
  • Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
