Laser hair removal delivers an alternative to waxing and shaving. Instead of a hair-by-hair approach (such as electrolysis), laser hair removal treats multiple hairs and follicles with each energy pulse. In addition, large and small sections like the face, underarms, back, chest, legs, and arms can also be done with a laser.
Our laser and light-based treatment devices can treat different hair and skin types. Laser hair removal is possible even for people with darker skin. Conventional tweezing, threading, and waxing techniques, painfully tear the hair from your skin. A more permanent solution is electrolysis, but this treatment is also painful and can be very time-consuming. When done appropriately, light-based hair removal technology offers men and women safe, effective, more comfortable, and a fast way to reduce hair growth more permanently.
Lasers can remove unwanted hair from your arms, legs, chin, back, underarms, bikini lines, and other areas.
- Lasers can target dark and coarse hair and leave the surrounding skin undamaged.
- Each laser pulse is only a fraction of a second, and lasers can treat many hairs simultaneously. For example, lasers treat areas about the size of a quarter, and a laser can treat the upper lip in under a minute. However, large areas like the back or legs can take up to an hour.
- You can have permanent hair loss after three to six sessions.
Laser hair removal is a medical method requiring training and does have some potential risks. When planning laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks. Avoiding the traditional hair removal process will allow the lasers to target the hairs’ roots that can be removed by waxing or plucking.
Sun exposure can cause complications, and technicians advise you to stay away from excessive sun exposure six weeks after treatment. In addition, sun exposure can cause laser hair removal to be difficult and can cause complications.
