Reasons for Considering Hair Removal

If you desire a long lasting improvement of unwanted body hair this procedure could be right for you. Depending on each person’s hair type and skin color, the hair may be removed or made lighter and finer so it is less noticeable.

Procedure Description

A laser is used to focus its energy on your hair follicles. After a few treatments, the hair either does not grow back or becomes much less noticeable.

  • Typically, multiple treatment sessions are done about one to two months apart.
  • The treatment is done with you awake and does not require any medications.
  • You may resume your regular activities right away.

Insurance Information

This procedure is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by your insurance.
