Are you tired of shaving, plucking or waxing your unwanted hair?

Laser hair removal is an FDA-approved process of permanently reducing or eliminating unwanted hair on almost any part of the body. The most common areas treated for hair removal include: bikini, legs, lip, chin, underarms, face, back, and chest.

Understanding Laser Hair Removal:

The laser targets the pigment in the hairs.  Basically, dark hair on a light background is the ideal target. White and blonde hairs cannot be treated. Dark hairs absorb energy from the laser and the resulting heat destroys the hair follicle. However, only hairs that are actively growing at the time will respond to treatment. Typically, 60-70% of hair is in its growing phase at any time. Because of this, multiple treatments over time are needed to get rid of as many of the growing hairs as possible.
