Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the US. If you are tired of shaving, waxing, plucking and threading, laser hair removal is a cost effective and very safe way to permanently remove hair, save time and money.

Men and women often seek treatment to permanently remove hair anywhere on the face and body, such as the chin, above the lip, legs, back, bikini lines and underarms.

Lasers selectively target the pigment in the hair follicle. Our Cutera ND:YAG 1064 laser is safe for all skin types. A series of 6 treatments is recommended for best results. Touch ups may be needed. Cost effective packages are available. Call us for further information.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is faster, gentler, and safer than electrolysis. A series of 6 treatments is usually recommended for optimal results and touch ups may be needed. Laser hair removal may be fast, but you still have to give it time. For it to work, a hair must be growing. You’ll usually see results after the first treatment but more complete results require four to six treatments. Your skin should shed all the targeted hairs in six to eight weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal treatment uses brief pulses of light energy to damage hair follicles, preventing regrowth. This gives the most effective, longest lasting hair removal results available.

Why choose laser hair removal?

Our laser hair removal treatment enables you to benefit from smooth skin, avoiding the in-grown hairs and irritation that can occur with shaving. Results are also more permanent than waxing, sugaring or hair removal creams/depilatory creams. Unlike IPL (intense pulsed light), laser hair removal is suitable for dark skin tones and hard-to-reach areas. And in contrast to electrolysis, it can be used to remove hair all over the body, with the ability to target large areas at one time.

Can laser hair removal be used on any skin type?

We are pleased to be able to treat any skin type, ranging from very fair to very dark. Our lasers can be adjusted to work with any hair and skin combination, provided that there is enough pigment in the hair. Laser hair removal is now safe for olive, brown and black skin tones.

Do laser removes hair permanently?

Most clients will get up to 90 % hair reduction with the recommended course and top up treatments as long as the interval is maintained.

How long does it take to remove hair from laser?

Each area can vary depending on what body part you are planning to treat. For example, underarms can take 10 minutes, and half arms or lower legs from 20 minutes, full back and shoulders from 45 mins to full body which can take 2 hours.

How painful is laser hair removal?

There can be some mild discomfort during laser hair removal treatment but it is often described as having an elastic band pinged against the skin. The heat only hits the hair not the entire skin like waxing does, so most clients find laser a lot less painful and faster per session than waxing! As we destroy more hair it will become less painful!
