Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the most popular, non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed today and for a good reason. It is finally possible for both men and women to be free from shaving, waxing and plucking forever and retain long-lasting smooth skin.

Our FDA-approved laser is the most advanced on the market today and is specifically designed for hair removal on all skin types. The laser’s built-in cooling system and extra-large spot size provide the most effective and comfortable experience possible. It is the ultimate solution for unwanted hair, anywhere!

Our laser is a Cynosure® Elite+™, one of the most advanced lasers on the market today for hair removal and spider vein removal. It is a combination Nd:YAG and Alexandrite system used with a built-in Zimmer® Cryo 6 Chiller, to maximize comfort. During hair removal, the melanosome, which is the pigment in your hair follicle is targeted by the laser. By using highly specific settings, customized to your skin and hair type, we are able to destroy the follicle permanently and prevent further hair growth.

Our laser can also be used with highly specific protocols to eliminate unsightly spider veins. The pigment in the veins, from hemoglobin, can also be safely targeted by the Nd:YAG component of the laser. A small beam of light is selectively aimed at the target vessel which is coagulated and destroyed by the heat of the laser. Our cooling system is used to maximize comfort and prevent any damage to the epidermis. With enough time in between treatments and an individually designed removal plan, we are able completely remove most unwanted hair and spider veins with minimal discomfort and almost no risk of scarring.

  • Shave the area to be treated on the day of your appointment.  If you are unable to reach an area, we will be happy to help
  • Please avoid tanning, spray or bottle tans, or tanning beds 4 weeks before your treatment and 2 weeks after the treatment
  • Waxing, tweezing and threading should not be done for 3 weeks before your treatment
  • Avoid using Retin-A or other topical retinoids for 3 weeks before your procedure
  • Additionally, if you regularly do microdermabrasion, IPL or other laser procedures, we may need to space your treatments further apart
  • Do not bleach the hairs to be treated as this will make the treatment less effective, however it is fine to use a cream depilatory such as Nair
  • You can work out before the treatment, but do not do so immediately after the treatment
  • Please provide a complete and accurate medical history at your visit so we’ll be able to provide you with the best care possible

Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have laser hair removal while pregnant? 2013-08-09T16:12:12+00:00

Yes. It is perfectly safe as the laser light is penetrating only the most superficial layer of your skin. However, we will need a note from your doctor saying that they are OK with you having the treatments.

Is laser hair removal really permanent? 2013-05-13T16:26:00+00:00

If you receive the recommended number of treatments for your skin and hair type, you can expect to achieve 80% to 90% permanent hair reduction. However, there is always the chance that hairs which may have been dormant during your laser treatment will begin to grow. Additionally, hormone changes with time or changes in health or medications may affect hair growth. Many patients find that maintenance sessions done once or twice a year after completing the initial treatment protocol is ideal for keeping unwanted hair away.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need and how often will I need them? 2013-05-13T16:22:54+00:00

There is no right answer as everyone’s hair and skin are different. Generally, we ask that everyone wait 6 weeks in between treatments and to expect 4-6 treatments for an 80% reduction in hair growth. More complete hair removal and darker, thicker hair may take 2-3 more treatments. Also, if you desire just a thinning of hair growth, you may require fewer treatments.

Is laser hair removal affordable? 2013-05-13T16:22:01+00:00

We offer some of the most competitive pricing in this area. There are no hidden fees or costs and we always offer a package discount. Additionally, we accept CareCredit, the leading provider in patient financing.

Can the hair removal laser treat all areas of the body? 2013-05-13T16:21:01+00:00

Yes, with our laser we can treat any area where you have unwanted hair.

Will I have a scar after laser hair removal? Any side effects? 2013-05-13T16:20:15+00:00

Any laser procedure can cause scarring however the risks from laser hair removal are very minimal. The risks depend on the experience and skill of the laser operator, the amount of melanin in your skin and your particular ability to heal. Our laser technicians operate under strict protocols designed to maximize the efficacy of the treatment, while minimizing any risk of injury.

Does laser hair removal hurt? 2013-05-13T16:19:22+00:00

Laser light produces heat as it is destroying the hair follicle, so it is not uncommon for patients to feel some tingling and warmth during the procedure. Additionally, certain areas of the body are more sensitive than others and those with very thick dark hair may experience more pain as those hairs absorb more laser light. Our laser is equipped with a cooling system, which is especially designed to minimize any discomfort and our laser protocols are designed with your comfort and safety in mind. We also offer a prescription strength anesthetic cream, which must be applied 20-30 minutes before the treatment begins, for those patients with particularly sensitive skin.

Is laser hair removal for everybody? 2013-05-13T16:18:40+00:00

Laser hair removal can be done on all skin types, but not all hair types. The laser works best when there is a contrast between the hair color and the skin color. Very light skinned people with red, blond or white hair will not achieve dramatic results. Dark skin and dark haired individuals, as well as lighter skinned individuals with darker hair will get excellent and often dramatic results.

What happens to my skin after the hair removal treatment? 2013-05-13T16:18:00+00:00

Immediately after the treatment, you can expect to have a little bit of redness, known as erythema. This is normal and signifies that the follicles that were targeted were effectively treated. This erythema can last for a few hours for up to a day or two, but will resolve on its own. You should notice the hair begins to fall out 10-14 days after the procedure.

How does laser hair removal work? 2013-05-13T16:17:17+00:00

The laser works by targeting melanin, the pigment in our hair follicles. The light is focused on the follicle of the growing hairs, which is heated and destroyed. This is done without harming the epidermis, the top and superficial layer of the skin. The pigments in light and dark skin are best treated by two different wavelengths of light. However, light hair, such as red and blond, have very little pigment and will not get the best treatment results. The hairs that are actively growing are best targeted, which is why it is necessary to have multiple treatments spaced at least 6 weeks apart.
