What is laser hair removal? How does it work?
Laser hair removal offers patients a safe, fast, and effective alternative for dealing with unwanted hair. Lasers work by emitting a specialized light that is passed through the skin and preferentially absorbed by its target, in this case, hair. The laser used in hair removal targets the melanin (color) in the hair follicle, damaging it and removing the hair. Laser hair removal is safe enough to be used on all body parts, including the face, back, underarms, bikini line, legs, and arms.

Is treatment permanent?
In most cases, about 80% permanent hair removal can be achieved after several treatments. Remember that the goal may not be total hair removal. Many patients are happy with a reasonable degree of hair reduction.
Also remember that the hair that remains is often lighter in color and thinner than the original hair prior to laser surgery. As with other treatments for unwanted hair, there is no guarantee that laser hair removal treatment will be permanent.
How many treatments are necessary?
Factors such as the amount of hair and individual reaction to the laser treatment will affect the number of treatments needed. In most cases, three to six treatments will be necessary to achieve optimal results, because there are always some hairs in a “resting phase.”
Does treatment hurt?
What can I expect with the procedure? We numb your skin with ice before treatments. Most patients describe laser hair removal as feeling "prickly,”. Afterwards, it might feel like a sunburn. Each patient has his or her own level of skin sensitivity and pain threshold. Different areas on the body are also more sensitive than others. Normally the skin just looks red for an hour or two. There is zero downtime.
