What is Laser Hair Removal and How Does It Work?
Laser hair removal is a non-surgical medical procedure designed to reduce unwanted hair from the body via the use of a powerful, pulsating light beam. During this process, the light beams heat the individual hair follicles until they are destroyed successfully, preventing future hair growth in the treated area. The surrounding areas of skin remain unharmed during the procedure. The most advanced technologies in laser hair removal make it possible to treat patients with many skin tones and hair colors.
Why Do People Get Laser Hair Removal?
Many people have unwanted or excessive hair in unflattering places, such as the back, neck, underarms, bikini line, and upper lip, and turn to laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair from these areas.
What Parts of the Body Can Have Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal may be performed on virtually any part of the body that grows hair.
How Many Treatments Does It Take to Permanently Reduce Unwanted Hair?
Every patient responds to treatment differently, but success is usually achieved after an average of eight sessions to permanently remove unwanted hair. Occasional touch-up treatments may be suggested every few years.
How Do I Know if Laser Hair Removal is Right for Me?
Laser hair removal is customized for every patient. Therefore, different lasers are used for treating different skin tones and hair colors.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
