What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is the procedure of removing hair off your skin through exposure to laser light. The pulses from the laser affect the hair follicles causing the hair to fall off.

We offer exceptional laser hair removal procedures in Charlotte that will help you rid of those unwanted hair. We are committed to bringing out the best in your skin.
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States. Typical areas of concern for this procedure are the face, legs, arms, underarms, and bikini lines.
This treatment only targets dark and coarse hair areas, leaving the surrounding areas safe and undamaged. It is also a fast procedure as each pulse only lasts a fraction of a second while treating multiple areas at once.
A smaller region such as the upper lip area may only take less than a minute to treat. Hair loss becomes evident after a few sessions but the effect is long-lasting.
How Can I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal consists of several sessions. In every session, patients should avoid plucking, waxing or electrolysis of the intended area for about 6 weeks prior to the treatment.
You should also avoid sun exposure during the entire treatment. Sun exposure can impede the effectiveness of the laser treatment.
Prior to the laser procedure, the hair is trimmed to a few millimeters above the surface of the skin. If the treatment is within the facial area, protective eyewear will be provided.
We will test the skin to gauge the appropriate caliber of light energy suitable for your skin. This is to ensure effective and reliable treatment. We also ensure that patients are comfortable during the entire procedure.
Are There Any Side Effects?
After the first session, your skin may appear and feel sunburned. We advise the use of ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, and cold compress. This can help heal and soothe the skin. It can also help the skin get ready for the next session.
The following sessions are scheduled on a 4-6 week interval depending on the type of skin. Sunscreen is also recommended to help protect the treated skin.
We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the affected area. We will recommend the number of sessions needed to fully remove the hair from your skin.
