Why settle for short-term hair removal methods? Laser hair reduction is a more effective solution. The newest advancement in laser hair removal technology provides long lasting solutions to excessive unwanted hair.
In the past the methods available to us for hair removal were tweezing, shaving, waxing or chemical depilatories. Some of these were very painful and only temporary.
Our LightSheer diode laser by Lumenis is a state of the art system. It is designed to remove unwanted hair faster with less discomfort. It produces a highly concentrated beam of light. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, heating the hair and significantly impeding the follicles ability to re-grow.
Hair grows in phases and therefore multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the best results. The number of treatments varies with each individual and is also dependant on the area of the body being treated.
Anesthetic cream is available although not necessary. Please let us know if you would like anesthetic cream when you schedule your laser hair appointment.
Some side effects may include redness and swelling in the hair follicle area. We require that you be your natural skin color before and during your course of treatment.
