How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Our innovative laser system targets the melanin in the hair follicles in order to disable them, which prevents them from producing any future hair. This treatment can be used to safely and effectively remove or reduce unwanted body hair for patients of various skin tones and skin types. It’s important to note, however, that results vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
We typically recommend a series of laser hair removal treatments scheduled a set amount of time apart. Some patients may require more or fewer treatments depending on the size of the area being treated, the thickness of the hair in the treatment area, and individual goals for treatment. Multiple treatment sessions are usually needed for effective results as our hair removal treatments target hair follicles in the “active growth” stage of the hair growth cycle, and not all hair in a given area grows at the same rate.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Common treatment areas include the:
- Bikini area
- Much more!
Who Is a Candidate?
Our laser hair removal sessions are safe for men and women of various skin tones and skin types. Prior to your treatment, we can determine if our hair removal treatments will be an effective option for you during an initial consultation.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects?
You might experience mild swelling or redness in the treated area immediately following a laser hair removal treatment session. These are temporary side effects that usually resolve on their own within just days of your treatment session. Your skin may have an increased sensitivity to the sun after your treatment session, so we may recommend you use additional sun protection if you plan to spend any time outdoors.

Laser hair removal sessions may be just what you’ve been looking for to address your unwanted hair at its source.
