We take great pride in our approach to skin care and anti-aging treatments, helping countless patients look their absolute best.

One of the most popular treatments that we offer is laser hair removal, which can effectively remove hair from various parts of the body. Let's go over the basics of laser hair removal and which areas of the body it can be used to treat.

Laser Hair Removal Is Preferable to Tweezing, Shaving, Waxing

Laser hair removal is an excellent option to consider if you would like to get rid of unwanted facial and body hair. Tweezing and waxing can be uncomfortable, and shaving can be quite inconvenient.

Laser hair removal will target the hair down at the follicle, and in the process it will prevent the hair from growing back. Should the hair grow back, it will be lighter and thinner, meaning that it's less visible. Multiple sessions of laser hair removal can result in long-lasting smoothness and hairlessness in the treatment area, something that tweezing, waxing, and shaving simply cannot achieve.

Laser Hair Removal for the Face

If you have unwanted hair around the upper lip, cheeks, jawline, sideburn, or chin area, nothing to worry about. Laser hair removal can safely and easily get rid of this excess hair and leave your face looking flawless.

Laser Hair Removal for the Arms and Armpits

The forearms and armpits are often a problem area for many women, particularly if they have dark or coarse body hair and fair skin. Laser hair removal is an excellent option for the arms and armpits, helping keep both smooth.

Laser Hair Removal for the Legs

Shaving or waxing your legs can be a real hassle, especially if this has to be done frequently. Instead of waxing and shaving, consider laser hair removal. This is an excellent way for you to have smooth legs without razor burn or issues with wax.

Laser Hair Removal for the Bikini Area

Waxing and shaving the bikini like is another hassle during the summer months, but did you know that laser hair removal can work wonders on the bikini area as well? It's a very good option to keep in mind if you'll be wearing bathing suits a fair amount in the summertime.

Laser Hair Removal for the Back, Shoulders, and Torso

While the above treatment areas are ones that female patients typically select, men can undergo laser hair removal too. Most men who undergo laser hair removal tend to undergo treatment in order to address hairy backs, hair on the shoulders, or excessive hair on the chest abdomen, and rest of the torso.
