Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an FDA approved process by which a beam of light targets hair follicles and destroys them so that they become incapable of growing hair. Through this process, the laser light destroys multiple hair follicles simultaneously. It is considered the fastest, most convenient way to reduce hair growth on the body. The hair is removed by use of collimated light beams. The light beam is aimed at the hair follicle and absorbed by the pigment, which in turn damages the hair follicle, eliminating further hair growth. It leaves the skin feeling smoother and silkier than waxing or shaving and is a gentle yet effective technique that can treat larger areas with minimal discomfort and no downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Laser Hair Removal?
The hair removal laser generates a specific wavelength which can only be absorbed by a specific type of pigment, which is why laser matching is so important. Incorrect laser matching could result in burns, hyper and hypopigmentation. That’s why it’s essential to have such a highly trained and experienced team of professionals as ours.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is more than just ''zapping'' unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks.If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That's because the laser targets the hairs' roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.
Will laser hair removal make my face red?
Generally, the coarser the hair, the more initial irritation you may have. Usually, this goes down within an hour. The hair on the face is generally much thinner than on legs or bikini, so the redness is relatively mild and makeup may be applied over it rather quickly. What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
