Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a more permanent hair reduction method used to treat hair growing on virtually any area of the body. Light energy targets the pigment in a hair follicle and destroys it, resulting in reduced hair growth.

How does it Work?

Light targets the hair in the hair follicle; specifically, it targets the pigment (melanin) of the hair. Hair Removal also has the potential added benefits of reducing pore size and evening out skin tone. Also, because there will be no hair growth, oil will not accumulate around the hair shaft, thereby reducing breakouts. Bacteria cling to hair and this is one way they spread from pore to pore. Getting LHR may reduce the number of breakouts.

What to Expect

The secret to laser hair removal is the clinically-proven technology that targets and destroys cells responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding skin. It’s a simple approach to permanent hair reduction that’s fast, easy, and FDA-cleared.

The Benefits for Laser Hair Removal

Light-based hair removal can work for almost everyone, including all skin colors and most hair types. It is a great alternative to waxing, shaving, and chemical creams. Laser hair removal can also help reduce occurrences of folliculitis, clogged pores, and may even out skin tone over time.

Benefits include:

• Permanent reduction of facial and body hair

• Fast, easy treatments with little to no downtime


What areas can be treated?

Laser hair removal can remove hair from the face (except around the eyes), back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini line, and legs.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Laser hair removal is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. Your provider will determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.

How long does it take?

Laser hair removal treatments take just minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas.

How many treatments will I need?

Several laser hair removal treatments are recommended for the best results. Your treatment provider can help tailor a plan just for you. You do not need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.

How much does laser hair removal cost?

Laser hair removal is more affordable than you might think. Ask a local provider to find out what laser hair removal costs in your area.

What will the treatment feel like?

Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure.

How quickly will I recover?

You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Some typical side effects of laser hair removal include a mild sunburn-like sensation (redness), accompanied by some minor swelling immediately following the treatment. These effects may last a few days. Cynosure Skintel reader measures the amount of melanin concentration in the skin objectively. By using an objective measure of melanin content, we can use the most effective setting while also reducing the risk of burns significantly; this technology makes LHR safer for those with darker and olive skin tones. This makes our technology much safer than older generations of hair removal machines.
