What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done procedures in the U.S. Laser hair removal is a treatment using lasers directed to hair follicles so they will not grow back, leaving smooth, hairless skin. It works by beaming highly concentrated light directly into the follicles, the pigment in the follicles absorb the light, which destroys the hair.


The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

If you're not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. If you get ingrown hairs, laser hair removal kills the hair follicle so they can't return. After 6-8 treatments your skin texture will be smooth in the area treated.

What to Expect


Laser hair removal takes 6-8 treatments to kill the majority of the hair in the area being treated. Everyone is different in how they respond to the treatment. Factors include, the machines, and how thick and dark your hair is. Eventually you will need maintenance treatments. Pregnancy will also require a maintenance treatment after the baby is born. 

What should I expect?

  • Treatments are quick especially in smaller areas like underarms.
  • Redness and tenderness can happen but goes away quickly
  • Ice and aloe vera can be applied to help with the tenderness and redness.
