What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of our most highly sought-after treatments! We use medical grade equipment in our clinic with the goal of providing affordable, effective treatments for both men and women. Our advanced laser system works to target the hair follicles that are responsible for excessive growth. The follicle absorbs the energy as heat – destroying it. The result is permanently less hair growth in just a few simple and quick treatments.

  • The laser energy works exactly where you want it to — directly on the hair follicles — without damaging the skin in the region.
  • Removing hair from a small treatment area, such as the upper lip, only takes a few minutes. Larger treatment areas such as the back can be treated in 20 to 30 minutes.
  • While it takes several sessions to fully achieve your desired outcome, you will enjoy permanent results. Once the hair is eliminated, it will never grow back.
  • Don’t worry about having to wax, shave, or tweeze anymore. shaving or waxing. Save time in your daily routine and avoid painful skin irritations and ingrown hairs.


Before your first treatment you will need a short 15 minute consultation with one of our certified laser technicians. This consultation is needed to assess your skin type, assess your suitability for treatment and to discuss how to prep your skin for the best possible result. If you require a treatment on the day of your consultation this can be arranged too.

During treatment, the skin is first cleaned of any lotions or beauty products. A numbing gel can also be applied to the skin in order to ensure optimal patient comfort. The laser hair removal device is then held to the targeted treatment area. The laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. There is minimal discomfort associated with the process, and is often compared to a light snapping sensation on the surface of the skin.

The result is permanently less hair growth. The time it takes to complete treatments depends on the patient and size of the area being treated. Because laser hair removal is non-invasive, there is no required downtime afterwards. However, you should protect the treated area from the sun by applying sunscreen and avoiding exposure. Multiple treatments are suggested in order to achieve optimal results.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Oh, happy day; our unwanted hair is about to go away! We are done with the razor, we are done with wax jobs and we are done with plucking. If you have unwanted hair growth that is making you feel bad about the way you look and feel, learn how to prepare for laser hair removal.

How is Laser Hair Removal Accomplished?

Hair removal at our office is accomplished with the use of a laser. Lasers can treat the hair in an area about the size of a quarter every second. Hair on the upper lip may take less than a minute; large areas such as the back of the legs may take up to one hour. Most patients have permanent hair loss or reduction after a series of treatment sessions, although some particularly complex cases may require maintenance treatments.

How Does Laser Therapy Remove the Unwanted Hair?

Hair removal uses a laser that emits light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles. Hair follicles are tube-shaped sacs within the skin that produce hairs. The damage to the hair follicles inhibits or delays future hair growth. Laser therapy works on the principle that the pigment of the hair absorbs the light rather than the pigment of the skin. The laser should damage only the hair follicle and avoid the surrounding skin. Generally speaking, the best outcomes occur when there is a significant contrast between the color of the hair and the color of the surrounding skin.

What Areas are Typically Treated?

The areas that are typically treated with laser hair removal are the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, bikini line and back. It is possible to treat unwanted hair in almost every area but around the eyes. During treatment, hair follicles should be visible; the presence of longer hair may cause issues during the treatment.

How to Prepare for the Treatment

Preparation for laser hair removal includes the avoidance of tanning and sunless tanners. Winter is a popular time for hair removal, but you can have it done any season. You must also refrain from plucking or waxing your skin; shaving is okay. Be sure to follow all pre-treatment instructions.
