Laser/Light Hair Removal
What is Laser/Light Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a noninvasive technique that uses highly concentrated light, not laser, to penetrate hair follicles. The laser light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft which is transmitted to the follicle and generates heat which damages the follicle and inhibits future hair growth. The ELOS technology we use to remove hair combines both intense light with radiofrequency which increases effectiveness and comfort while decreases the risk of side effects that can occur with traditional laser hair removal. While dark hair is the easiest to treat, ELOS technology can reduce white hair growth that traditional lasers can’t treat. Hair removal can be done anywhere you have hair on both men and women.

Plucking and waxing hair before treatment reduces the efficacy of the laser treatment as the target is absent. Because laser hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, it may take several laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction. Additionally, while laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn't guarantee permanent hair removal. Periodic maintenance treatments may be needed.
Hair removal is tolerated well by patients and many people say it feels like tiny pin pricks or small snaps or stinging sensation. We offer different ways to make this as comfortable for you as possible. Many people worry about what they look like after a hair removal treatment and wonder if they can go back to work/school. You may have slight redness after the treatment, like you were in the sun but this usually goes away within 30 minutes and can be covered up with makeup.
