Who is a Good Candidate?
You may benefit from laser hair removal if you want to:
- Permanently reduce hair in specific areas of your body, such as your legs
- End the cycle of temporary hair removal remedies, such as waxing and tweezing
- Remove hair from large areas of your body, such as your upper back, in just a few sessions

We use the Cynosure Alexandrite laser to remove hair quickly, safely, and effectively. During your session, the laser is passed over the targeted area. The device emits a concentrated beam of light that penetrates through your skin's outer layers down to the hair follicles below. The light targets and is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in your hair follicles and leaves surrounding tissues unharmed. This heat energy disables the hair follicle, causing hair to stop growing. Since hair grows in cycles, and only actively growing follicles are affected, a series of treatments is required at 6 to 8 week intervals. The length of your session and number of treatments recommended varies, depending on your hair growth and cosmetic goals.
Minimal to no downtime is needed after your session, and most patients can return to their regular routines after their treatments. However, for best results, we recommend that you do not tan your skin until after all your sessions have been completed.
Results and Benefits
Smooth, hair-free skin typically results after the series of laser hair removal treatments. An occasional "touch up" treatment may be required for optimal hair reduction. Many patients say that they love how much time they save without those endless rounds of tweezing, waxing, or shaving!
