Laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic treatments across the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light and destroy the hair.
Pricing, just like procedure time, depends on the size of the area treated. Please contact us for a consultation!
Laser hair removal uses laser technology to get rid of unwanted hair. This procedure is popular for its fast, convenient, and long-lasting technology.
How does it work?
Depending on the treatment area, we use different handpieces to maximize results and comfort.
With HIT technology, a vacuum effect pulls the skin into the handpiece, bringing the hair follicle is closer to the energy source. The energy is absorbed by the melanin at the base of the follicle, and the resulting heat damages the hair follicle, and prevents re-growth.
With ChillTip technology, the handpiece cools the skin during treatment to minimize discomfort.
How many treatments do you need?
It typically takes multiple treatments to eliminate unwanted hair. Hair type and hair color influence the number of treatments needed. Our treatments are sold in packages of six.
What areas can be treated
Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere on the body. Commonly treated include the bikini area, back (for men), underarms, and legs.
Prior to Treatment:

The laser emits an intense light that is absorbed by melanin, the main source of pigment in the skin and hair. The light penetrates through the skin and targets the melanin in the hair follicles. This destroys the hair without damage to the skin.
Most patients describe a mild stinging sensation. No anesthetic is needed.
- We recommend staying away from the sun and tanning beds prior to your treatments.
-Do not wax or pluck for at least a month before your appointment; this completely undermines the treatment. If there is no hair follicle, the laser can’t treat it.
- Do not wear makeup or sunscreen when you come in. You will need to wear sunscreen after the treatment if the area treated is in a sun-exposed place. This will reduce the chance of inducing transient skin discoloration.
- We won’t be able to treat directly over a tattoo. This is also true of skin-colored cosmetic tattoos.
- The area needs to shaved before treatment. After treatment, dead hairs are often slowly extruded over the following two weeks, and improvement is noted after that, even with only one treatment.
Our laser works best on skin types 1-3. If you have a darker skin type, a consultation will be needed to determine if this device is best for you.
