Do you have unwanted hair you’d like to remove?
Due to hereditary or hormonal reasons, many people are plagued by unwanted hair growth in different areas of the body. Increased hair growth often starts during puberty and increases as we grow older, when hormone levels change again.
Razors, wax, tweezing, chemical creams, facial bleaches are all effective hair removal techniques, but they are all temporary. And while most of these practices are entirely safe, pain-free alternatives are available.
What are the alternatives to waxing & shaving?
While many people rely on shaving, waxing, tweezing, chemical creams, and facial bleaches, they are all costly and time-consuming. The hair on the brow, upper lip, arms, legs, back (and more) can all be addressed with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or laser treatments for more effective results. These treatments are just as safe as the other options, but the results last much longer, making them a more cost-effective option.
Unlike shaving or waxing, IPL hair removal impairs hair follicles at the root so that new hair will not grow in. By damaging the hair follicles in this way, all future growth is inhibited. And even though IPL uses light to target these follicles, we will apply a topical numbing cream to cool your skin. This will help to minimize any discomfort you might feel during your treatment. Best of all, there is no damage at all to the surrounding skin.
Compared to traditional hair removal methods, laser hair removal can lead to superior results. Light-based hair reduction is safe and recommended for nearly all areas of the body, including the face, arms, back, underarms, legs, chest, and the bikini area.
