What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that removes unwanted hair from various areas of the body. The pulses of laser light heat the hair follicle to the point that the root is destroyed while the skin around it remains unharmed. It is a quick and virtually painless procedure.

What areas of the body can it be used on?

Laser Hair Removal can be used on the following areas:

  • Bikini Line
  • Arm Pits
  • Upper Lip
  • Chin
  • Ears
  • Between Brows
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Feet

How many treatments does it take?

While every patient varies, it typically takes five to seven sessions to permanently remove unwanted hair. Touch up treatments may be recommended.

What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Lasers can precisely target coarse, dark hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take 10 minutes.

How should I prepare for Laser Hair Removal?

If you are scheduling laser hair removal, you should limit hair removal such as plucking, waxing and electrolysis for 4 weeks before treatment. You should also avoid sun exposure for 4 weeks before and after treatment, as it makes removal less effective and increases the chance of complications. Shave the area that will be treated 48-72 hours prior to the day of your treatment appointment.
