Laser hair removal involves the use of laser energy to damage your hair follicles in areas where unwanted hair is present. This treatment makes it possible to no longer need shaving, waxing, or plucking as the hairs become finer and disappear. Multiple treatments are often necessary for the best results.

No more shaving, plucking, or waxing!

We don’t think that much more needs to be said when it comes to the benefits of laser hair removal. Take a vacation from primitive hair removal techniques and get some longer lasting results with laser hair removal treatments.

How many treatments are necessary for maximum hair reduction?

Typically, people require between eight to twelve treatments to see long lasting results. This is because during the treatment, all of the hairs are at a different point in their growth cycle. Since laser hair removal can only really destroy a hair follicle in the first stage of the growth cycle, multiple treatments are needed so that all of the hair follicles can be targeted and destroyed.

How does it work?

The hair removal lasers work by targeting the melanin in your hair. Melanin is what gives your skin and hair it’s color. The darker your hair is, the more melanin it has. When hair is darker the better the laser will be able to target the hair follicle. The laser rapidly heats up the hair shaft and follicle to such a high heat that it causes the follicle to be unable to regrow hair, especially if it is in the first stage of the growth cycle.

Multiple treatments are needed to reduce the hair re-growth by over 75%. Hair can be removed for a long time, and you’ll even find that you’ll need to shave less in between treatments. Sometimes dormant hair can start to grow as you age due to hormonal or dietary changes, or simply due to genetics.

Is there any recovery time?

There will be some redness and tenderness as well as possible swelling in the treated area, but this will subside within the first few days. You can use ice packs or soothing gels recommended by our team members to help alleviate any discomfort.

After treatment It is best to avoid direct sunlight on the treated area for a month as there will be potential for discoloration.
