Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal is the world’s most advanced treatment for effective removal of unwanted hair. Great news for men and women who want to get rid of excess hair.

There is a better solution!

You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair. Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t visible to the naked eye.

But, when darker, coarser hair appears in places which may make you uncomfortable – such as the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, legs or underarms in women, or on the shoulders, chest and back in men, it may be time to consider hair removal with state-of-the-art laser technology.

Understanding hair removal

In the past, the usual remedies for unwanted hair were plucking, shaving, waxing, or chemical depilatories. Some are painful, some are messy, and all are only temporary.

For long-term hair removal, electrolysis is popular and effective, but it is a time-consuming procedure which can be painful and is useful only in removing hair in small areas. During electrolysis, an electric current is passed through a needle to destroy each individual hair root. It typically takes months and numerous visits to clear even small areas, like the upper lip.

Laser hair removal is a more effective solution. Our laser is a state-of-the-art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliability than other methods.

What can you expect?

The length of a laser treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. It is important to know that the hairs in an active growth phase (referred to as anagen) are most affected by the laser. As all hairs are not in phase at the same time, more than one treatment will be necessary to achieve the best result.

The treatment itself may cause some discomfort. Most patients tolerate the procedure well, but because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, topical anesthesia can be an option.

The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure and skin type. Side effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact, desired clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to the treatment. Most people return to normal activity right away. We will be happy to tell you more about your treatment, possible side effects and what results you can expect during your complimentary consultation.
