TIRED OF SHAVING, WAXING OR TWEEZING?

Then it’s time to get rid of unwanted hair.
Our laser hair technology is safe and effective for most skin types.
Studies show both women and men can feel disfigured from unwanted facial and/or body hair.

How it works: This treatment uses a cosmetic laser that has settings adjusted to both your skin and hair type. The laser fires a concentrated beam of light that’s directed at the pigment in your hair follicles. This kills the follicle at its root, preventing those hairs from growing back. Hair grows in cycles. Lasers are effective in only the anagen phase (the active growth phase) when the melanin load (hair pigment) is at its highest. Because not all of the hairs are in the anagen phase at any one time, treatments must be repeated to capture new hairs coming into the anagen phase. It often takes between five to six sessions (4-8 weeks apart) for best results. You’ll want to be consistent. After the first few treatments you might not see much of a difference, but will start to notice a dramatic drop in unwanted hair after the first three sessions — and even more after that.

Dark hair follicles are usually easy to treat because, again, the laser targets the hair’s pigment. This is also why gray, white, blonde, and red pigments can be tricky. Darker skin tones can also be harder to treat.

The sad truth is that not everyone’s skin will react well to cosmetic laser treatments. Pigment problems, discoloration, and scarring can occur with some skin types, which is why it’s important to allow your medical professional to conduct a small test patch first if necessary.

Before a laser hair reduction session:

No sun: At LEAST 2-4 weeks before, to be exact. You can’t receive this treatment if you’re sunburned — or even if you have a tan. Summer might not be the best time to start laser hair removal if you’re a fan of the outdoors. A lot of people start treatments in the fall or winter in order to have stubble-free skin by summer! No tanning beds or tanning creams or spray tans.

Shave first: This isn’t like waxing, and you don’t need to grow your unwanted hair out beforehand. On that note, you can’t come in for laser hair removal if you’ve had a wax recently. Remember, the laser targets the PIGMENT of your hair follicle, which actually has to be there in order for this to work.

The best thing you can do is shave a day before your appointment.
