Laser hair removal isn’t just another fad – it’s here to stay and for good reason. It’s an excellent way to get smoother, sexier skin without the shave. With laser hair removal (LHR), you can toss out the razors, creams, tweezers, waxes, and other failed hair removal products forever!

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal targets and destroys hair follicles through a light, so that your body sheds hair from the root. The light energy is transformed into heat to inhibit growth from the follicles.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

No, LHR doesn’t hurt, as a topical numbing medication is applied before treatment, and a gel on the laser wand helps to cool the surface of your skin. You may notice a slight sensation on your skin as if it is being snapped by a rubber band.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Do I Need?

That depends. To achieve optimum results, you will likely need more than one session. Hair growth occurs in cycles and not all hair follicles are in the active cycle at the same time, so multiple sessions are typically necessary to be sure all hair is removed. Typically, six to eight sessions are necessary for larger areas such as the legs and back.

How Long Do Laser Hair Removal Results Last and When Are They Noticeable?

Results are permanent, and hair will not regrow in follicles that have been destroyed. However, to ensure that all follicles have been treated, be sure to keep follow-up appointments to permanently eliminate ALL hair.

Full results may take five to ten days, however you may notice that hair on the top layer of skin immediately sheds.

Will Laser Hair Removal Work on My Skin Tone?

Yes, LHR works on all skin tones now, thanks to advances in laser technology. Anyone can successfully become hair free with LHR.
