Laser Hair Removal

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Tired of shaving and waxing? Ingrown hairs? Bumps after shaving? Laser Hair Removal or Reduction is the answer to those problems. During treatment, the laser targets an area, heating and ultimately destroying the bulb of the follicle. Several treatments are necessary to achieve about 85-90% reduction of hair growth. However, there may be some finer and very thin unnoticeable hair remaining. Many patients have
described the treatment as a warm rubber band snapping sensation and very tolerable. Most people will need at least 6-8 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart, depending on skin color and hair density but all skin types can be treated, darker skin types may need extra treatments.
