Laser Hair Removal

Why do Laser Hair Removal?

Messy, painful and ineffective hair removal methods are now a thing of the past. Today, pulsed light with AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) treats unwanted hair with quick and safe bursts of light. Involving no downtime, you can continue with all your regular activities immediately after your Laser Hair Removal treatment. Best of all, this non-invasive and effective approach yields permanent hair reduction and long-term hair removal- anywhere on the body.

Does it hurt?

While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate the treatment well, and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin.

How many treatments are necessary?

All hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth. As the Laser Hair Removal AFT pulsed light only affects hair follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment, resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can be effectively treated. For this reason, treatment must be repeated every 6-8 weeks for a series of 6-10 treatments depending on the person and the area.

Who can be treated?

Men and women of all skin colors have been successfully treated. The laser will not be able to treat blonde, red, white or grey hair as it only picks up on darker pigment. For, best results, Laser Hair Removal treatments are customized according to skin color, hair texture and body site.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • Prior to your laser treatment, please do NOT wax, tweeze, undergo electrolysis, or bleach the area to be treated for at least two weeks prior to your treatment.
  • Do NOT use Antibiotics, Aspirin, or St. John’s Wort two weeks before treatment (they cause photosensitivity to the skin, which can cause blistering and/or burning.) You will be rescheduled!
  • On the day of your laser treatment, shave the area to be treated. If the area is not shaved there is a $20 prep fee.
  • Refrain completely from sunbathing, tanning beds or using self-tanning products for the duration of your treatments. This is to reduce the risk of burning. If you have had recent exposure you will be rescheduled!
  • Use a sunblock SPF 30 or higher each day that the treated area is exposed to sunlight, even on cloudy days.
