BEFORE & AFTER
How does it work?
A highly concentrated light is beamed into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light, destroying the hair. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Our technology is effective on nearly all skin types and tones. While most lasers selectively target dark, coarse hairs, our systems are proven to also remove lighter colored hair on almost ALL skin tones while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal:
- No more razor burn, waxing or tweezing
- No more ingrown hairs
- Smooth and hair free skin all the time
- Precisely target sensitive, delicate areas with ease
- Speed of treatment means less time to treat hair in unwanted places
What to expect from your Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
If you are planning on having a laser hair removal treatment, you should limit plucking, waxing or threading for minimum of 3 weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.
Hair grows in many cycles. The follicles underneath the ones you currently see at any given time need to be treated later when they become active. That is why multiple treatments are necessary. For each treatment, small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour. The equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of hair being treated as well as your skin color.
Risks associated with laser hair removal are minimal. Our advanced equipment cools the skin surface and constantly measures the skin’s resistance to ensure safety and comfort during treatment. You may experience redness or a mild sunburn like sensation in the area right after treatment. Side effects are rare, but may include purpura (a laser bruise), blistering, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, and swelling in the treated area – these usually do not last more than a few days. This is a no-downtime procedure. You can get back into your daily activities immediately after treatment. Hair loss will be evident 3 to 4 weeks after treatment.
Laser Hair Removal Aftercare
Although we use the latest technology which is effective on virtually any type of skin, we recommend that you avoid sun exposure for at least one week before and after treatment to minimize risk of complications. As hair grows in many cycles, multiple sessions are needed. The majority of clients achieve their desired results after 5 to 6 treatments. Each treatment is spaced from 4-6 weeks apart. As there are different factors to individual results, a personalized consultation is always recommended.

Our Laser Hair Removal treatments use a patented Cooling Device which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen milliseconds before the laser pulse. This ensures that our treatments are as comfortable as they are effective. Many people describe laser hair removal to feel like a rubber band snapping against the skin. Compared to waxing and other forms of hair removal, the treatment has very little discomfort. If you do find it uncomfortable, our healthcare professionals can prescribe a numbing cream for your skin.
Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece operated by our practitioner. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. The heat is then absorbed by the cells being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. Your skin may be slightly red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.
The average person spends over $33,000 and 1,500 hours waxing and shaving during a lifetime. Unlike shaving, tweezing, or waxing, Laser Hair Removal is a real solution, not a quick fix. Once the follicle is successfully destroyed the hair doesn’t grow back, so you can experience smooth skin without razor bumps, nicks, ingrown hair or stubble. Our systems can effectively treat almost all skin types and most hair colors with the exception of grey, light blonde and red hair.
