How Does IT Work?
Removing unwanted body hair with a laser involves using a specialized device designed to target and destroy the hair follicle to prevent hair from growing back. The treatment times vary depending on the size and scope of the treatment area. Smaller areas like the chin or ears take a lot less time than larger areas like the legs or back.
Using a melanin reader, we’ll optimize the laser’s settings to your skin color and hair thickness to ensure treatment efficacy. We’ll provide you with special eye protection to wear, so the laser’s brightness doesn’t damage your eyes. Using a test pulse on the treatment area, we’ll check for strength, your comfort level, and any other adverse reactions. The laser emits a concentrated beam of light (pulses of infrared diode energy) that transfers directly into heat or thermal energy, damaging the follicle (the area from which hair grows). The follicle absorbs the light attracted to the hair’s pigment and instantly zaps it away, damaging and making it difficult for the hair follicle to function. This targeted damage reduces and prevents future hair growth while protecting the skin and tissue surrounding the hair. There may be an occasional sulfurous or burning smell because hair contains keratin, which is composed of large amounts of cysteine, an amino acid containing sulfur.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ
What is Laser Hair Removal
Very! The FDA approved this hair removal method in 1997, and treatments have been safely performed ever since. However, an experienced licensed clinician must perform the procedure to ensure the safety of your skin.
All About Laser Hair Removal
It’s all about time. Laser hair removal treats an area about the size of a quarter, while electrolysis affects only one hair at a time. This makes electrolysis very time-consuming. Keep in mind that some stubborn hair may require electrolysis to be permanently removed.
Laser technology for medical use began in 1961, but it wasn’t until the mid-1990s that it became commercially viable for hair removal. Since then, there continue to be significant advances in laser hair removal technology as each year passes.
No problem, we’ll dial back the procedure and sessions until we have left just the right amount of hair in place.
Laser Hair Removal Precautions
When performed by an experienced clinician, laser hair removal presents little to no risk. During your consultation, we will answer any concerns you may have and will address any risk that may be present.
Before & After Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal works great for both men and women who want to permanently remove hair on the face and most parts of the body. Patients most commonly request hair removal on the legs, underarms, bikini area, Brazilian area, buttocks, back, shoulders, stomach (abdomen), happy trail, chin, upper lip, neck, chest, and arms. It can be a little embarrassing for some patients to discuss the areas where they want hair removal. From naughty bits to ear lobes — trust me; we've heard and seen it all. As long as the hair is dark, it will respond beautifully to laser hair treatments.
