What does the treatment feel like?

Each pulse of the laser feels like a slight sting or pinch, similar to the snap of a rubber band. No local anesthesia is required and most people tolerate the treatment well.

How many treatments are needed? 

Because the laser can only permanently disable the hair follicle in the active growth cycle and not all hairs are in this part of the cycle at any one time, most clients require 6-8 treatments to achieve permanent reduction of hair. Our goal is to target hair growth in the Anagen phase where hair growth is active and contains the most melanin. Fewer treatments are needed if your goal is to reduce the number of hairs as well as the coarseness of the remaining hair. In hormonally induced areas (i.e. women's facial) usually 8-10 treatments will be required. A precise cost and treatment estimate will be given at the initial consultation. Please contact us for more details.

How long does a treatment take?

The length of a laser session may range from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of  areas being treated. 

What is Laser Hair Removal / Reduction?

Never think about having to shave, tweeze, or wax again.  Say hello to lasers, and goodbye razors!  Laser Hair Removal offers a lasting solution for unwanted hair.  It emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed.  Upon absorption, the energy is transformed into heat, which will disable the follicle, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.

Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive approach to permanent hair reduction. Experience no down time while eliminating hundreds of hair follicles with this safe effective method. This procedure is quick and effective for small and larger areas and designed for most skin types.  Patients with light skin and dark hair experience the best results.

Your initial free consultation will help us determine whether this service is right for you.

What body areas can be treated?

We can do laser hair removal just about anywhere on the body. The most common areas for women are the upper lip, chin, underarms and bikini line. Men desire hair removal on the back, shoulders, chest and back of neck. We do arms, legs, toes, ears and more! We can treat any area with the exception of the areas around the eyes.

What post-treatment is necessary?

You will need to use sunscreen regularly during your laser treatment package and for six weeks after completing your packages.  Avoid irritants for seven days after treatments. Do not tan areas for two weeks after treatment.

Following treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately.  

Are there any possible side effects?

Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours. On rare occasions, some blistering or bruising may occur, but typically resolves quickly. Also, the skin can become darker or lighter following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks. Limiting sun exposure will minimise the risk of complications pre and post session. 

Is there anything special I need to do before my first and each Treatment?

In general here are some important things for you to do (or not do) prior to your laser hair removal treatments:

  • Shave the treatment area  atleast 24 hours before your treatment, come fresh shaven for better results, this is for comfort and effectiveness.
  • DO NOT wax, pluck, tweeze, use bleaches or hair removal creams  for 4 weeks prior to your appointments during your treatment series.  Removing the hair with these methods removes what we are trying to remove with the laser.
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure, self tanners and tanning beds 3 weeks before each treatment.
  • Use sunblock with SPF 30 on areas to be treated that are exposed to the sun before and after treatment.
  • Pregnant women should wait until after delivery before proceeding with laser hair removal services.
  • Do not take Accutane for 6 months prior to treatment.
  • Must be off any antibiotics or photosensitive medications for 2 weeks prior to your appointment.

What happens during a treatment?

You will be asked to wear dark safety glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. Next, a cold gel may be spread over the treatment area. The hand piece is then applied to your skin and pulses of light begin disabling the unwanted hair. When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area falls out over the next week or two.

How does Laser Hair Reduction work?

The laser targets the hair follicle without disrupting the skin's surface to remove hair on any part of the body for smooth softer looking skin. The energy directed from the lasers hand piece is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, the generated heat energy is designed to destroy the hair follicle so it cannot grow back. Our top of the line approach to hair removal is safe for all skin types and targets all hair colors that contain melanin. The result is permanent hair reduction providing the most desired effect.
