What Is It?
Laser hair removal is an easy, low-maintenance cosmetic method for removing unwanted hair on an ongoing basis. The laser projects a highly concentrated beam of light into your hair follicles, and as the pigment in your hair follicles absorb the light, the hair is destroyed. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic treatments in North America.
How Does It Help?
Laser hair removal treatments are highly acclaimed for their precision, accuracy and speed. The lasers can specifically target darker, thicker hairs without negatively affecting the surrounding skin. They also remove hair rapidly, treating an area roughly the size of a quarter every second, which allows for the entire hair removal process to take minimal time. Laser hair removal can also result in permanent hair loss, which generally starts after 3-7 sessions.

Most areas that have hair can be treated with laser hair removal. We provide treatments on legs, underarms, bikini line, neck, face, upper lip, cheeks, chin, areola, chest, stomach, back, shoulders, feet and toes, arms and hands, abdomen, buttocks, and other areas upon request.
