Laser hair removal is a safe alternative to remove unwanted facial or body hair, while eliminating razor burn and the “shadow” effect caused by shaving. Laser light targets the pigment in the hair follicles, and converts it into heat. This causes follicular destruction during the anagen, or "growing phase" of the hair growth cycle. Laser hair removal can be performed on all parts of the body, including the face, upper lip, legs, arms, underarms, and back. Sensitive areas may also be treated, such as the bikini line, ears, nose, chest, and nipples. The number of sessions depends on the area of the body being treated, skin color, coarseness of hair, underlying conditions such as polycystic ovaries, and gender. For optimal results, we recommend 4-6 treatments varying between four to eight weeks apart.
