SAY NO TO THE RAZOR… HELLO LASER
Are you tired of waxing or frustrated by those irritating red bumps caused by shaving? Laser Hair Reduction is the ideal choice for most people who are tired of having to shave regularly. Laser Hair Removal can get rid of unwanted hair on virtually any part of the body including the face and neck, arms, underarms, back, chest, legs, bikini area, hands and feet.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses laser light — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair. Laser hair removal works by passing a light beam through the skin. The laser targets dark pigment, called melanin, in hair. When the light beam hits the hair follicle (where hair growth originates), the intense heat destroys the hair follicle instantly. Laser hair removal offers a quick, safe and comfortable way to remove unwanted body hair. Unlike other hair removal procedures that focus on individual hairs, laser technology is able to quickly treat large areas of hair at once and is safe on all skin types. Laser Hair Removal works by selectively concentrating light energy in the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unchanged. This procedure can be performed in as little as 15 to 30 minutes and you can return to regular activity immediately following. Laser hair removal can be performed on any area of the face or body and is faster and easier than other methods of hair removal. A series of treatments are provided at 4-8 week intervals to achieve treatment goals.
