Safe and effective treatments

Treatments that really work
Laser energy is absorbed by pigment in the hair follicle while your hair in its anagen, or active phase of growth: The laser light is converted into heat,
causing thermal damage to the follicle without harming the surrounding tissue. Hair re-growth is impeded in the damage follicle.
Average treatment series
Only 30% or less of your hair may be in the active phase at any one time depending on the body area. Thus, a series of treatments will be required to achieve the long-term improvement you desire. These treatments are spaced approximately 4-12 weeks apart, based on hair growth cycles. Our extensive experience tells us that you can expect to need from 3-8 treatments (4-6 is average) to each treatment area for long lasting optimal results.
Typical treatment sessions
Sessions for an upper lip or small bikini can take as little as 15 minutes, while larger areas on back and legs may require up to 60 minutes or more after the 30 minutes with the topical anesthetic.
How permanent is laser hair removal?
The average patient in clinical studies sees a 48% reduction in hair growth after three treatments and up to an 80% lasting reduction after six to eight treatments (results vary).
After you have completed a series of four to six treatments, any remaining hair will usually be finer and lighter color. Most patients require one or two touch-up treatments per year. Blond, platinum, most red and gray will not respond to this treatment.
