Laser Hair Removal
What is laser hair removal?
Are you tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing?
Do you get razor bumps or acne-like breakouts when you get rid of unwanted hair? If so, you may want to consider laser hair removal.
Dermatologists use lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Thanks to advances in technology, most people can safely have laser hair removal.
Removing unwanted hair can take 6 sessions or more. Afterward, laser hair removal is permanent on most areas of the body. Due to hormones, it’s not permanent on a woman’s face.

Remove unwanted hair all over your body:
- Bikini area
- Face, especially the upper lip and chin
- Back, neck and shoulders
A series of treatments is usually recommended to achieve the best results.
Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Predictability. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment. Wait for tanned skin to fade before beginning treatment. Always shave the area prior to appointment. Breathe, and stay calm.
Come to your appointment as relaxed as you can. We promise: the anticipation is worse than the appointment! If you’re concerned about pain, come in 30 minutes prior to the time and we can apply numbing cream.
How many treatments could I expect?
Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area and skin tone.
It is important to avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two-four weeks for optimal results.

It’s a very calm place, always smelling like peace, with a relaxing sound on, temperature just as right... wonderful...
Mary is such a great person, confident about what she says/does, always attentive to what you want and need, very kind and helpful. She makes you have the best experience ever with relaxing massages or treatments. I have had massages and a couple treatments, and I just loved it, got results after the first session.
This is the right place. I would highly recommend! I have found my happy place!
