Freedom from shaving+razor bumps!

Laser treatment is a non-invasive procedure used to permanently reduce unwanted hair and for long term hair removal. Laser treatment can effectively eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. Unlike many other hair removal methods, laser treatment leaves your skin looking and feeling much smoother and softer.

Preliminary setup involves cleansing and shaving the area to be treated. A laser is then directed toward the area and produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Without damaging the surrounding tissue, controlled pulses of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by hair follicles. The heat generated in the process discourages and ultimately destroys the hair and its potential for regrowth. Post-treatment includes a clean up of the treated area and the application of sunblock. Large areas such as those found on the back, shoulders, abdomen, and legs are rapidly treated. Smaller facial areas like the lip, chin, and beard can be treated in minutes

IS TREATMENT PAINFUL?

The procedure is well tolerated by most patients since only a mild sting is felt. Local anesthesia and pain medication are not required. A topical anesthetic may be used for the treatment of more sensitive areas or patients 

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Side effects are very rare. Sensitivity, irritation, and redness may occur at the treatment site but then quickly disappears. Susceptibility to these side effects will be identified during your FREE consultation. To greatly minimize the risk of side effects, sun exposure must be limited prior to and immediately following the treatment

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

Because the laser affects only hair follicles that are in the growth phase, more than one treatment may be necessary. During your free consultation, the approximate number of required treatments will be determined based on your particular situation
