How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Before treatment a numbing cream will be applied so that the procedure is more comfortable for our patients. During treatment, the laser emits a pulse that travels harmlessly through the skin and is attracted to the pigment of the hair. The laser then heats up the hair's shaft and root causing it to be destroyed and unable to regrow hair. All hair that are in the active growth stage will be destroyed. Treatments will need to be repeated every 4-6 weeks since not all hairs are in the active growth stage at the same time.

Results of Laser Hair Removal

Results will vary depending on the individual targeted areas and hair thickness in that area. Patients can discuss their desired results with our experts and schedule treatments every 4-6 weeks until desired results are achieved. After 3-10 days many patients will notice the damaged hairs falling out and may choose to lightly exfoliate the area with a washcloth or loofah to help remove the damaged hairs. Optimal results are typically seen after 6-8 treatments.

  • Avoid tanning and sunless tanners for 1 month before procedure
  • Refrain from plucking or waxing the treatment area for 6 weeks before appointment
  • Shave the treatment area 2 days prior to appointment
  • Do not apply any cosmetics, deodorant, creams or lotions to treatment area on the day of your appointment

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Skin tightness
  • Crows feet
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles

  • Acne
  • Cystic acne
  • Dark spots
  • Sun spots

What is Laser Resurfacing for?

Our laser therapy delivers high-intensity light to "dark spots", "sun spots" or any other brown spots that appear throughout the body commonly on the hands, arms, neck and face. The light from the laser breaks down these melanin stores so that the melanin can be broken down by your body. This procedure will allow your body to produce new collagen at the target areas to reduce the appearance of redness, broken capillaries and brown spots to deliver a more even and youthful skin tone. Our laser also has the ability to smooth wrinkles, fine lines, and crows feet by stimulating regeneration of important collagen and elastin to plump up hollowed areas.

How does the laser work?

Our laser technology uses the power of a very narrow spectrum of light to address age spots, photodamage (caused by excessive sun exposure), broken capillaries, acne, light acne scars, and other skin issues such as diffuse facial redness. Our treatments are designed to improve the outer, visible layer of your skin, by gently normalizing and drawing out darker, blotchy tones. Our laser technology stimulates the production of collagen, which firms skin from the inside out, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reduces the size of your pores. The darker pigmentation blotches absorb more light so underlying pigmentation is brought up to the surface over the course of a few weeks where it is sloughed away, revealing lovely, plump, more youthful skin underneath.

Results of Laser Resurfacing

Redness and discoloration from the sun and the natural aging process are diminished and new, plumper collagen replaces the targeted areas leaving behind a younger, more full and even complexion. Treatments will vary depending on your skin's condition, ask our experts about how our laser treatments can help you become more confident.
