LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal offers a permanent reduction in hair. The laser is attracted to the color or melanin in the root of the hair. Unfortunately, grey, silver, and blonde hair is not treatable by laser. Hairs in the growth phase have the most amount of melanin and these are the hairs that get treated. The cycle of hair growth is dependent on location. For example on average facial hair cycle is about 4 weeks while on the body is about 8 weeks. The number of treatments required is dependent on area, type of hair, numbers, and ethnicity.
Hair on any part of the body can be treated excluding inside the eye orbit.
Cost is dependent on area being treated and time needed. Please take advantage of the complimentary consultation for a quote on your treatment.
