Laser Hair Removal
Get to the Root of Unwanted Hair
Unwanted hair is a common problem for both men and women. Frequent hair removal chores including shaving, depilatories, plucking, and waxing are time-consuming, inconvenient, and often painful. At best, these frequently used methods offer only temporary results – for some only a few hours. It’s no surprise that according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, laser hair removal is the 3rd most performed non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the US.
Free yourself from the constant need to shave and wax unwanted hair in order to look and feel your best. Laser technology has brought us a safe, long-lasting way to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body, leaving skin feeling smooth and looking great.

What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure. This procedure uses a powerful laser (Nd:YAG and Alexandrite wavelengths) to remove hair on your body that is unwanted.
The light source heats up the hair follicles inside the skin and destroys them. This disrupts the growth of the hair and causes it to be consequently removed from the skin.
What Are The Common Areas?
The most common areas where the laser hair removal procedure is performed are the:
- Bikini line
This procedure is most effective on people that have dark hair and pale skin.

Before & After Results
How It Works?
To understand how laser hair removal works, it’s helpful to understand how your hair works.
How Your Hair Grows
Hair grows from deep within hair follicles, which are thin cavities embedded in the skin. Hair does not grow continuously, but grows in a three-phase cycle.
1. Anagen Phase. This phase is where the hair actively grows. The Anagen phase typically lasts for several months and is the best phase for Laser Hair Removal.
2. Catagen Phase. During this brief phase, the hair bulb regresses and begins to shrink.
3. Telogen Phase. The final phase is a resting phase which lasts a few months. During the Telogen phase, the hair is released from the follicle. After the resting phase is complete, the hair will restart the Anagen or growth phase.
While the rate at which hair grows differs by individual, the length of the hair growth cycle generally depends on the type of hair and area of the body. For example, the active growth phase of the hair on your head may last several years, while hair on the body has an active growth phase that may last only a few months.

How Laser Hair Removal Works?
During laser hair removal procedures, a laser device emits light energy that travels through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and hair shaft. Pigments are the substances that give skin and hair it’s colour (also known as melanin). The energy absorbed damages the pigmented hair follicle, which impairs its ability to grow. Hair follicles that are in the anagen, or active growth phase, have more pigment and absorb more energy, and typically respond the best to treatments. For this reason, it typically takes multiple treatments to achieve the best results – it’s important to “catch” your hair in this active growth phase when you are receiving treatments.
Technology We Use
There are many devices for laser hair removal however, we use the best in laser technology, the Cynosure® Elite+™. The Elite+™ uses two proven laser wavelengths that provide treatments for patients of all skin types. Treatments with this system are fast, effective, and safe.
With spot sizes up to 24mm, the Elite+™ laser provides fast treatments, allowing you to resume your normal activities as quickly as possible. These larger sized spots make for quick treatments of larger areas such as the back, legs, or chest. Smaller spot sizes are used for smaller areas, such as the upper lip.
The Elite+™ contains two different types of laser wavelengths that provide effective treatments on patients of all skin types. One of the lasers is better for lighter skinned patients, and the other is better for darker skinned patients.
The Elite+™ system has been in clinical use for many years and has been proven safe in many clinical publications.

Frequently Asked Questions
Laser hair removal can remove hair from faces, backs, chests, arms, underarms, bikini, legs and more.
Different lasers can effectively treat different skin types. Our laser can be used on a wide range of skin types from very light to very dark skin. During your consultation we will determine the best course of treatment for you based on a variety of factors such as hair color and hair type.
Typically, we recommend a series of six treatment sessions to provide the best aesthetic outcome. Laser hair removal technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth, so several treatments are needed to affect all of the unwanted hair.
Yes. In fact, the area needs to be freshly shaved before your treatment session. You may shave the area the day before the treatment or the day of the treatment before coming in for your session. But you should not wax or pluck the hair during the course of your laser sessions.
It depends on which area is being treated. In general, face, underarms, arms, and bikini are approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Back, chest, and legs are approximately 8-10 weeks apart. During your consultation your treatment course will be discussed.
Most people feel only a slight momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure followed by a slight heating of the skin. This typically goes away after the treatment but cooling methods can be used immediately after treatment to help with this sensation.
Typically, you can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
You may experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor redness and/or swelling immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts 2-24 hours. Ask your provider to discuss other possible side effects and the necessary post-treatment care with you.
