What To Expect

In order to achieve permanent results, multiple treatments are required so our laser hair removal technology can affect each individual hair and hair follicle. During the treatment, it will be noticeable that some hairs may shed immediately from the follicle on the skin. After treatment, the appearance of the contacted area may differ between patients, but if redness or soft swelling develops upon the contacted skin, it is both temporary and indicative of a positive response of the follicles towards the laser treatment.

Our laser hair removal services offers the fastest, most effective way to permanently reduce unwanted hair safely and almost painlessly with smooth, enduring results. We treat all areas except the inside of the nose or ears. Most commonly for women, we treat facial hair, bikini line hair, forearms, underarms and legs. For men, we treat backs, chests, and neck line.

Laser hair removal lasers have been in use since 1997 when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved them for “permanent reduction.” As long as the right type of hair is treated with an appropriate type of laser at effective settings, the hair can be disabled permanently. The FDA called this service “reduction” because lasers can remove the majority of the coarse hair on a body area, but they cannot remove finer hair.

We can provide laser hair removal treatments to both men and women of all skin types as categorized by the FITZPATRICK SKIN TYPE CHART.

TYPE I: Highly sensitive, always burns, never tans. Example: Red hair with freckles or Albino

TYPE II: Very sun sensitive, burns easily, tans minimally. Example: Fair-skinned, fair-haired Caucasians

TYPE III: Sun sensitive skin, sometimes burns, slowly tans to light brown. Example: Darker Caucasians, European mix

TYPE IV: Minimally sun sensitive, burns minimally, always tans to moderate brown. Example: Mediterranean, European, Asian, Hispanic, American Indian

TYPE V: Sun-insensitive skin, rarely burns, tans well. Example: Hispanics, Afro-American, Middle Eastern

TYPE VI: Sun-insensitive, never burns, deeply pigmented. Example: Afro-American, African, Middle Eastern

Following treatment, you will be guided by our doctors in maintaining the right steps to a permanent laser hair treatment, notably how to prepare and manage sun exposure.
