Laser Treatments

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive series of treatments that gradually reduces and eliminates unwanted facial and body hair. The treatment is spaced between 4-6 weeks and the hair must have pigment in order for the treatment to be successful.  Please arrive completely shaven in the area to be treated, or added charges may apply.

Who is a good candidate?

Those with dark hair and light skin are the best candidates; however, patients with a wide variety of skin types can be treated with our lasers with great success.

How long is one treatment?

Most treatments take less than 30 minutes!

Why so many treatments?

To obtain significant laser hair reduction, most patients will need 4-6 treatments over a 12 month period. More than one treatment is needed because hair grows and matures in cycles. We have to disable all the hair follicles, and since they are active at different times, we have to treat the area more than once. At any time, a certain percentage of the hairs are in the resting phase. The laser is unable to treat the resting phase and we must space treatments so that hair is in the correct stage of growth in order to be successfully removed.

Before Treatment

For the 6 weeks before laser hair removal you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis. By removing hair in this fashion the laser does not have a target for treatment. Please shave the day of or the day before your appointment, or added charges may apply. It is also helpful to limit sun exposure for 6 weeks before the treatment to get the best results and limit complications. For bikini line area please wear light-colored underwear because the laser can interact with dark colors.

After Treatment

You may experience slight redness and swelling at the procedure site. This irritation should only last a few hours and is actually a sign that the treatment was successful. Slight irritation at the hair follicle indicates follicle destruction. You can use moisturizers or ice to soothe these symptoms. You may resume your normal activities after treatment, but protect your skin from sun exposure. Makeup can be used the day after laser hair removal.

Blisters are rare but more likely in people with darker skin coloration. Sunscreen can be beneficial after treatment.
