Say goodbye to time-consuming hair removal ways such as shaving, plucking, and waxing which only give temporary results. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to remove.
With Laser hair removal, you will notice a permanent hair reduction on any areas including the face, legs, back, underarms or bikini line leaving you a fuzz-free skin. If you are worried about the sensitivity of your skin, this service is completely painless.
This laser service removes the hair using a concentrated beam of light which is aimed at hair. The light will then absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle enough to prevent future growth.
After treatment, the hair follicles within the anagen phase that were damaged are permanently unable to produce new hairs or can produce only very thin, tiny hairs that are virtually invisible.

Laser Hair Removal can be safely used on all skin types from very light skin to very dark skin. It is most effective on individuals with dark hair. Candidates with very light or gray hair are not ideal. However, we will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors during your consultation.
Hair follicles are continually cycling through three phases: anagen or growth phase, catagen or transitional phase, and telogen or resting phase. Hair is most susceptible to this treatment while in the anagen phase. Because of this timing, it’s not possible for any laser treatment to achieve 100% hair removal, but it is possible to significantly reduce the number of growing hairs by as much as 85%. Multiple treatments can be administered for maximum results.
Laser hair removal is permanent. After treatment, the hair follicles within the anagen phase that were damaged are permanently unable to produce new hairs, or can produce only very thin, tiny hairs that are virtually invisible.

You may also experience some redness and/or swelling a few days after at the treatment site but this typically resolves by the third day.
