Do you feel that your body hair is too thick, too dark, or grows back too quickly? If you’re fed up with the almost daily maintenance of excess hair, then laser hair removal may be the treatment for you.

Over a million laser treatments are performed each year. Its safe and effective process makes it the ideal treatment for people struggling with unwanted hair.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses heat to damage the hair follicle. This process disrupts the hair growth cycle, causing it to take longer for your hair to grow back. This process may lighten and thin excess hair. After multiple treatments, most patients will find that little to no hair regrows.

Areas of Treatment

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Face
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Pubic region
  • Abdomen

Why Laser Hair Removal Over Other Methods?

Laser treatments, like other hair removal methods, help your skin feel and look smoother. However, methods like shaving only eliminate hair growth for hours or a few days. More long term methods, such as waxing, can achieve smoothness that may last for a week or two. Laser hair removal is designed to prevent hair regrowth for several weeks, and it can stop it altogether for some people.

If your hair is particularly dark or thick, you may not achieve total hair elimination. However, you may achieve:

  • Lighter hair color
  • Thinner hair strands
  • Less dense patches of hair
  • Longer periods between hair removal
