A Quick solution for Unwanted Hair with Enduring Results!

Most hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief. Electrolysis can result in reduced hair growth, but it is a tedious and often painful process. A hair removal laser offers quick treatment of large and small areas, anywhere on the body, with long-lasting results.

  • Chin/Neck
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Upper Lip
  • Bikini Line
  • Legs
    Safely remove unwanted body hair without damaging delicate pores and structures of the skin. The process is simple. A coat of clear gel is smoothed onto the skin, and then the laser pulses are quickly and evenly applied. Most individuals experience no more than a slight stinging sensation. Some parts of the body do tend to be more sensitive than others, and sometimes redness or swelling will occur for a few hours afterwards.

    Treatment Schedule

    It is important to realize that hair follows a specific growth cycle, moving from an "active" stage into a dormant period. The length of each phase in this cycle varies depending on where the hair is located on the body.

    During your initial session, the hair removal laser will remove visible hair and disable those follicles in the growing phase. Follicles lying dormant will not be affected at this time. Eventually, as these dormant hairs become active and begin to grow, additional sessions may be desired. The number of sessions will vary by individual.
