Laser hair removal permanently reduces unwanted hair in three to six treatments.
If you’d like to permanently reduce unwanted hair, laser hair removal could be exactly you’ve been looking for. Our specialists recommend three to six treatments for an 80 to 90 percent hair growth reduction in the targeted area. The ideal candidate has dark hair and light skin, as the procedure is less effective for reducing grey hair or “peach fuzz.”
Laser hair removal typically works best on:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip

What to expect during laser hair removal
Your laser hair removal treatment begins with one of our skilled aestheticians shaving the desired area and then targeting the area with the laser. The laser may feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin, as its intense heat damages the hair follicle, inhibiting future hair growth.
After the treatment, your aesthetician will apply a calming, cooling gel to the area. Your skin may be slightly swollen for a few days to a week. Most people require a touch-up treatment every year to capture any small hairs that may appear.
Laser hair removal cost
The cost of laser hair removal varies based on your specific treatment goals and other services you may also undergo. A member of your care team will discuss the cost of laser hair removal with you during your consultation, and our team is always available to help establish a laser hair removal payment plan that works for you.
Laser hair removal risks
While our laser hair removal process is exceptionally safe, risks include temporary blisters and skin pigmentation changes. Your aesthetician will carefully review the procedure with you and make recommendations for your specific needs.
