Laser hair removal is a service offered as a way to reduce unwanted hair under the arms, in the bikini and buttock area, on arms, legs, abdomen and face. Our goal is to reduce the hair by 80-90 percent, and what hair remains is lighter and thinner. Body hair takes about six to nine treatments and facial hair takes about nine to 12 treatments. The treatments are typically scheduled four to six weeks apart. Patients with dark, thick hair often see the best results while those with white, very blonde or light red hair often respond poorly. Treatments are done in the office with topical anesthetic and no down time. Our laser is also one of the few that is FDA approved for ethnic skin.
