How does the procedure work?
We only use the best laser for hair removal. We can treat ALL skin types from the fairest to the darkest to the tannest! Our Hair removal laser is the only laser to be contracted by the U.S. army for treatment of pseudo-folliculitis barbae, AKA ingrown hairs of the beard.
The surface of the skin is cooled by a gel applied immediately before and after treatment, and by the cooling head of the laser hand-piece which glides over the skin.
Step 1. Shave the treatment area.
Step 2. We Place the pulsed light hand-piece on the area to be treated.
Step 3. The hand-piece emits a beam of intense pulsed light, which is absorbed by the hair follicles and converted to heat.
Step 4. The heat disables the hair follicles.
Some of the hair is wiped off immediately after treatment, and the rest is shed over the next 2-3 weeks. The hair roots which have been destroyed are reabsorbed by the body.
The laser can be used almost anywhere on the body. Sensitive areas such as the nipples, upper lip and bikini line can be treated easily and with minimal discomfort. People occasionally experience a snapping sensation or a mild sting. We usually do not need to use anesthetic creams, although clients can take a Tylenol or Advil beforehand.
In women, the most common areas for treatment are upper lip, chin, bikini line, arms and legs, and underarms.
In men, the most common areas for treatment are shoulders and back, eyebrows and the beard area.
Why should you consider laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is convenient, safe and efficient compared to any other hair removal option out there. While no laser can guarantee hair free skin, lasers will remove up to 90% of hair within 4 to 6 treatments. Multiple treatments are needed because not all hair follicles are in the same growth cycle and the laser targets actively growing hairs.
Just imagine no longer needing to dedicate extra time for shaving, using messy solutions, painful electrolysis or scheduling time for torturous waxing appointments. Pulsed Light or our 1064 laser can remove/treat hair before it becomes visible, unlike these prior treatments, .

Over a year, that amounts to roughly $600.00. If you multiply $600.00 over several years. It’s clear how much more economical sense laser hair removal makes.
