How does the laser work?

Lasers safely remove unwanted facial and body hair by selectively targeting melanin (pigment) inside the hair follicle, generating energy in the form of heat at the root of the hair, and destroying the hair without damaging the skin.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Laser hair removal treatments are extremely safe and our professionals are certified laser specialists.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Most individuals experience no more than a slight stinging sensation as the laser pulses are applied. Some parts of the body do tend to be more sensitive than others and a topical numbing cream is available.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Does It Take?

The number of visits are 4 to 10. The face may need maintenance over the years due to hormonal fluctuation. There are three phases of hair growth — Anagen (active), Catagen (regression) and Telogen (resting). Laser technology is designed to treat hair in the Anagen phase of growth. Additional factors, including age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism, influence hair growth and play a role in the location, thickness and resilience of your hair. Although each client is unique, experience tells us that you can expect an average of 4- treatments spaced 6 to 12 weeks apart, depending on the body location of the unwanted hair.
