LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Our hair grows in three stages: anagen, telogen and catagen.
A concentrated beam of light (the laser) is aimed at the hair follicle. The laser than converts its energy into heat, heats up the hair follicle and prevents that follicle from growing any further.
Laser hair removal is most effective on the hairs in the early part of the anagen stage, when hair is actively growing.
This is why it is so important to receive laser hair removal in a series of consecutive treatments, every 4 to 6 weeks. Most clients report that after a series of sessions, there’s a significant reduction in the amount of body hair that grows back.
The recommended number of sessions will depend on your hair type and how well it responds to the laser. Typically anywhere between 6-12 sessions.
Q: How long does it take for laser hair removal to work?
A: For instance, your back or legs may take 30 minutes, while the upper lip may only take minutes. You will notice results after your first laser treatment, but you're not done. For most clients, it takes six to 8 sessions spaced four-six weeks apart to see 80 to 90 percent reduction in hair growth.
Our laser hair removal works on nearly all skin types and tones. Patients with red, light blonde, and gray hair may require other treatments to remove their hair.
Clients with light skin and darker hair, often have the best results. However, we can effectively treat any skin type.

Hair Removal FAQs :
Q: Can laser hair removal reduce ingrown hairs?
A: It certainly can! Ingrown hair commonly shows up in areas of the body that have been shaved or waxed. They’re caused when the hair is broken off unevenly with a sharp tip. With laser hair removal, clients have less of a chance of getting ingrown hair because they aren’t shaving or waxing. Plus, when hair does grow back after a laser hair removal treatment, the hair tends to be sparse and fine. The change in hair texture reduces the chance of having ingrown hairs even more.
Noninvasive and nonsurgical
Selective, targeting dark, coarse hair while sparing the surrounding skin
Fast, each laser pulse lasting a fraction of a second
Toning and conditioning, leaving you with softer, smoother skin
Comprehensive in its ability to target large areas of hair
While shaving and waxing are both popular hair removal methods, the biggest difference with laser hair removal is that it can remove hair permanently from the body.
Laser hair removal is precise. The laser only targets pigmented areas on the skin, such as the hair follicle. This is why only the hair follicle is burned and not the skin surrounding the area.
It is important to avoid excessive sun exposure before your procedure.
Before any treatment is done, every new patient must have a consultation by a licensed professional to determine if they qualify for treatment.
