Eliminate Unwanted Body Hair
For unwanted hair, laser hair removal is an effective, safe aesthetic solution that provides better results than traditional hair removal techniques. Laser Hair Removal can be used on many parts of the body, including face, neck, underarms, bikini area, legs, back and ears.
Laser Hair Removal- Overview
During this procedure, a laser will be used to produce a bright beam of light. This light is absorbed by melanin, which is the pigment in hair, and causes damage to the hair shaft and follicle without damaging tissue.
Laser Hair Removal- Recovery
Immediately following this procedure, the treated area may appear slightly red. This should lessen within minutes however ice compressions can be used to help with this. It is recommended that you avoid direct exposure of the treated area to sunlight immediately following laser hair removal.

Frequently Asked Laser Hair Removal Questions
Q: How many treatments will I need?
Answer: The majority of clients will need about six treatments to achieve the desired percentage of permanent reduction.
Q: What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal compared to other methods?
Answer: Whereas shaving, tweezing, depilatories and waxing are all temporary, laser hair removal offers a permanent method to remove unwanted hair. Side effects of waxing include the potential for allergic reactions, burns, ingrown hairs and scarring. Waxing can also be quite painful. Depilatories can cause skin irritation and burns and must be performed weekly. Plucking and tweezing are impractical for large areas, can be painful and may lead to pigmentation problems and scarring, especially in patients with darker skin.
Q: What areas of the body can be treated?
Answer: All areas of the body, including face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, back and ears can be treated. Eyebrows should not be shaped with the laser but the area in between the eyebrows can be treated.
