Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal treats active hair growth only and results in 85-90% permanent hair reduction over time. Hair must be darker than the surrounding skin, but red hair is not included. Laser light is attracted to hair color and damages the hair follicle in order to prevent the hair from regenerating.

Is Laser Hair Removal right for me?

Laser Hair Removal is right for you if you have hair darker than the surrounding skin. Unfortunately, current laser technology is unable to treat red, gray and white hair. Your skin should not be exposed to the sun or sunless tanning lotion for at least 2 weeks on either side of the treatment.

Laser Hair Removal Frequently asked questions

Does it hurt?

There is a cooling element in the treating crystal on the hand piece, but there is some discomfort. The treatment is tolerable overall, but the intensity depends on the density and coarseness of your hair.

Is there any downtime? 

None! We recommend you not apply deodorant and/or creams and refrain from exercise for at least 24 hours. 

How can I prepare for my treatment? 

Refrain from using products containing alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, benzyl peroxide, retinoids or exfoliation on the face for at least two weeks prior to treatments. Exfoliation includes microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, and chemical peels. If you’re taking antibiotics or steroids, schedule your appointment at least two weeks following your last dose.  

We strongly encourage you to make a commitment of staying out of the sun and avoid the use of sunscreen after the treatment and beyond. Spots will return if your skin is exposed to the sun without protection.

Should I prep my hair in any way? 

Yes. You should shave the hair in the desired treatment area prior to your appointment. Do not pluck or wax the hair.  

How frequently can I receive Laser Hair Removal treatments? 

You can receive treatments on your face every 4 weeks. Other parts of your body need 10-12 weeks in between treatments.  

How long do the treatment sessions last? 

It depends on the area and concentration of hair follicles, but usually between 15 minutes to about 45 minutes.
