Laser Hair Removal - What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe treatment that uses a focused beam of light to remove unwanted hair from the body. The light targets pigment and damages the structures that produce hairs, preventing their regrowth.

Shedding is a normal part of the process and results may require several sessions scheduled about 4-6 weeks apart. You can shave between treatments, but you should avoid plucking or waxing the targeted area as it may affect the results.


Unlike waxing, shaving, and plucking, laser hair reduction uses focused beams of light to destroy the follicles that produce unwanted hair. You’ll experience little to no discomfort during the treatment. The follicles absorb the heat and light energy, and they begin to shrink as they die. Over time, the hair follicles stop growing and your skin becomes smooth and silky.

Lasers can also reduce wrinkles by precisely removing them one layer at a time. They can dramatically reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, lipstick lines, and other facial wrinkles.

We offer a range of laser technology to suit all needs and skin types. The Vbeam laser treats vascular lesions and spider veins, and the Nd:YAG laser is long-pulsed and deep-penetrating, making it suitable for treating scars, discoloration, and hair.


If you’re tired of shaving, waxing or plucking your way to smooth skin, laser hair reduction is an effective solution. This technology uses pulses of light energy to attack the pigment and destroy the follicle, leaving you with silky-smooth skin.

This machine has a diode laser, which allows it to treat darker phototypes while preserving the epidermis. It can also treat red marks, scars and spider veins. This system has a cooling system with gas, gel or cold air.

It’s important to commit to a series of treatments in order to see the best results. It may take six months to achieve permanent hair reduction, but it’s worth it for the long-lasting, beautiful smooth skin you’ll have! Your skincare professional will let you know how many treatments are recommended for your specific area.


If you are tired of shaving, waxing, or plucking and seeing hair grow back, laser hair reduction is the treatment for you. This is a long-term solution that eliminates the need for razors, shaving cream, aftershave products, and depilatory creams, saving you time and money.

It is important to know that unlike electrolysis, lasers only destroy ACTIVELY GROWING hair roots. This means that it is best to avoid waxing, sugaring, using EpiLady-type pluckers or other hair removal methods for at least six weeks prior to your laser treatments.

It is also important to be aware that hair follicles with dark pigment (like the ones that will produce dark terminal hair) are more easily destroyed than vellus or peach fuzz follicles. However, lasers with longer wavelengths and cooling like the Altus CoolGlide are much less likely to cause prolonged irritation or pigment changes.


Laser hair reduction is a safe and effective treatment when done by an experienced and licensed skincare professional. The laser energy targets and destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin, so you can feel confident about getting this treatment.

Before your treatment, you will apply a topical numbing agent to the area of the face or body where you are planning on having the laser treatment. Then, you lay back as your provider glides a handheld device over the treated area.

Before you start your laser treatment journey, make sure to tell your provider about any medications or supplements that you are taking. Some medications are photosensitive, meaning they can cause a reaction if exposed to light. This includes acne treatments like Rocaccutane and Retin-A, as well as certain blood thinners.


Using lasers to reduce unwanted hair growth is an efficient and effective way to remove hair from areas of your body that are often difficult to manage through shaving, plucking, and waxing. Depending on the area, you may require multiple treatment sessions set a few months apart to ensure your desired results.

You can expect a comfortable, pain-free experience during your laser treatment session. Your provider will cleanse the area and apply a topical numbing agent to minimize any discomfort. Next, they will glide a handheld device over the treatment area.

This device is known as LEXI, an FDA-cleared non-invasive Intensive Pulse Light (IPL) therapy device that can visibly reduce or nip pesky hair growth in the bud for good. The device is also able to treat sun damage, including irregular pigmentation, large pores, and flushed skin.
