About Laser Hair Removal
During laser hair removal, a laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to stop or significantly impede the hair’s growth. A certified laser technician uses the highest technology lasers with unparalleled efficacies in hair removal, especially thinner hairs that other lasers cannot directly target.

The Recovery Process
After your laser hair removal sessions, you can expect a smooth recovery. Most clients experience minimal discomfort, like a mild sunburn sensation, which usually subsides within a day or two. The results become noticeable in about eight weeks as hair regrowth slows down. You’ll find yourself needing to shave or groom less frequently. The convenience and long-term benefits of laser hair removal make it a smart choice for achieving silky-smooth skin.
