What is 

Laser Hair Removal


Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to target and inactivate hair follicles, resulting in long-term hair reduction. It’s a safe and effective solution to reduce unwanted hair from various parts of the body.

How does it work?

A handpiece is strategically placed to emit light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. This light energy is then converted to heat, which shrinks the hair follicles and prevents future hair growth. The surrounding skin remains unharmed, making it a safe option for various skin types.

Pre-Treatment Preparation

1. Consultation

Schedule a consultation with our experienced medical professionals to discuss your goals and assess your suitability for this treatment.

2. Let Your Hair Grow

Avoid plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for 4 weeks before treatment, as these methods remove the hair root which is targeted by the laser.

3. Avoid Sun Exposure

Limit direct sun exposure and avoid tanning beds and self-tanning lotions for at least 4 weeks prior to your treatment to ensure optimal results.

4. Shave the Treatment Area

Shave the treatment area one day before your session to enhance the laser's effectiveness while minimizing the risk of burns.

Post-Treatment Care

Avoid Sun Exposure

Protect your skin from direct sunlight and tanning beds and apply sunscreen regularly to the treated area.

Avoid Hot Baths and Saunas

Keep the treated area cool and avoid hot baths, saunas, and strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours.

Follow-Up Appointments

Please feel free to schedule a follow-up appointment to address any concerns.

Shaving is encouraged, but we recommend avoiding plucking, waxing, or other methods that remove the hair shaft.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal provides long-term hair reduction. While no method can guarantee 100% removal, many patients experience permanent results in treated areas.

Laser hair removal is safe for most areas of the body, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and bikini line.
