Laser hair removal
CaIf you're not happy with shaving, tweezing or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair
removal may be the perfect solution for you. The treatment works by beaming highly
concentrated light into hair follicles which over time safely and permanently removes the unwanted hair.
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing,
and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That's because the laser targets the hairs' roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. Whether you need hair removal services or hair restoration, contact us.
