About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal can be used as an alternative to traditional hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams. This procedure uses concentrated laser light to reach the hair follicle, the heat then breaks down the pigment in the hair follicle into small pieces. This causes the hair follicle to be completely destroyed, and in turn you won’t have any new hair growth in these areas. Laser hair removal is a great way to get rid of unwanted hair from any area of your body. Some of the most popular and common areas for hair removal are your underarms, bikini line, lower legs, lower arms, your chest, and your back. We’d love to help you treat those unwanted hairs so please contact us today to schedule an appointment!
