Temporarily removing unwanted hair can be a pain in the… wherever you’re treating. Whether you’re shaving, waxing, sugaring, or tweezing, these common practices range from tedious and time-consuming to downright painful.
For a better solution look no further than laser hair removal.
You’re likely familiar with the procedure. As laser hair removal has gained popularity, the technology has improved too. In fact, laser hair removal is one of the most sought-after non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
A semi-permanent way to treat unwanted hair, laser hair removal works by damaging the hair follicle and hindering new growth. The laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair and converted to heat which destroys the treated hair follicles rendering them unable to support new growth.

The entire experience is customized to fit your needs. Updated technology allows for quick and efficient treatment without the pain traditionally associated with the heat of a laser. In fact, our machines work without any cooling gel or topical anesthetic (although you can of course consult with our practitioners ahead of time if you’re concerned about pain).
However, laser hair removal doesn’t happen in one treatment. A completed laser hair removal process can take months and winter is the perfect time to start. Why? The use of lasers means your skin will be extra sensitive to UV rays. An active tan has a lot of pigment or melanin that may also absorb the laser light energy intended for the hair follicles resulting in burns or hyperpigmentation. Therefore we recommend no sun exposure in the treatment area for 3 weeks prior.
Starting in January is a great way to get ahead for the summer since your skin is less likely to be exposed to the sun’s harmful rays during the cold winter months.
Of course, it’s not all rules and regulations. Laser hair removal requires no downtime following the treatment, leaving you free to live your life and resume normal activities immediately. While you may have a bit of redness, this will likely fade within a day or two following the treatment, and the results are long-term.
