Laser Hair Removal is currently available!
Laser hair removal involves removal of unwanted facial or body hair using laser light. The laser work by targeting the hair follicle bulb leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Traditional hair removal methods such as waxing or shaving remove only the hair shaft which leaves the follicle in place to grow new hair.
Lasers can be used to treat unwanted facial hair or hair on the back, armpits, arms, legs, and the bikini area. Overall, the procedure leaves skin smooth without the stubble and irritation that can often occur with other removal methods.
WILL I SEE IMMEDIATE RESULTS?
Typically, laser hair removal requires at least 4 treatments spread out over 4-6 week intervals for best results. Some maintenance sessions may be necessary and will be determined by your physician and your response to the laser treatments. Some hair removal will be noticeable right after a session. Regrowth in between treatments is often sparse and less pigmented. Results vary depending on your skin color, specific body area targeted, hair color, and the coarseness of your hair.
