How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?hair removal (2) before after

Highly concentrated light energy from the laser is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue. The pigment in these follicles absorbs the light which destroys the hair.  This results in permanent hair reduction that’s fast, easy and FDA-cleared.

During treatment, most people feel only a slight pinch at the treated area. Immediately following the treatment most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, which can last two to 24 hours.
