A LASER is a device that emits a single wavelength of light. Each color has a specific wavelength that absorbs it.

We use this principle to treat unwanted dark hair by selecting a LASER that emits the wavelength of light that is absorbed by problem dark hair, and stops its growth.

It works by delivering an intense beam of light that is absorbed by the skin. This light is converted to heat and is absorbed by the cells being targeted, while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. Our laser has a skin-cooling device for greater patient comfort and safety – and better results. 

How many treatments are needed? 

While results vary for individuals, four to six treatments are recommended. Our experience shows the hair density is reduced almost completely after four sessions.
