Are you looking for a treatment that will unshackle you from the need to constantly remove unwanted hair? Millions of people have undergone laser hair removal procedures to do just that. The technique utilizes a laser to safely destroy hair follicles that grow unwanted hair. You are warmly invited to learn more about this treatment.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that is one of the most commonly performed treatments in the United States. It has become so popular because it allows you to spend more time doing activities you enjoy, rather than performing tedious tasks like constantly plucking, shaving, or waxing to remove unwanted hair.
What Areas Does It Treat?
A laser hair removal treatment has the ability to permanently destroy hair follicles and prevent them from growing hair on your face, arms, underarms, bikini area, and legs, among other areas. A series of fast treatments is all that you may need to set aside your razor and spend more time on enjoyable activities.
How Does It Work?
We use a laser to selectively target individual hair follicles for destruction. Since a hair cannot grow without a hair follicle, this leads to the appearance of smooth skin in the treatment area. The part of your hair that absorbs the laser energy is called melanin. This substance is what gives your hair its color.
Why Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal permanently removes or reduces unwanted hair. So you no longer need to shave, pluck, or wax to remove it. Once you have undergone your laser treatments, hair will not grow back in the area of the treatment. And any hair that does grow back will be thinner and lighter. It is important to note that results vary from patient to patient.

You may make a good candidate for a laser hair removal procedure if you require the permanent removal of unwanted hair on places like your face, legs, bikini area, arms, or underarms. We can determine if you would make a good candidate for this laser procedure at your consultation.
