Laser Hair Removal

Get Smooth, Hair-Free Skin

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive treatment that targets the pigment in your hair with laser energy to destroy it. The laser sends heat into the follicle to damage it and reduce its ability to grow. With full treatment, it can prevent your hair from ever growing again.

The Laser Hair Removal Procedure

For best results, please shave the targeted area before your procedure. In addition, don’t tweeze or wax 4-6 weeks before your initial treatment or between treatments. You don’t need anesthesia for this quick, painless procedure. During your treatment, you might feel a bit of slight stinging but very little discomfort. The procedure can take as little as 10 minutes for small areas, like your bikini line, and up to 30 minutes for larger areas like your legs.

Laser Hair Removal Results

After your first treatment, you’ll see immediate results. When your hair starts to grow back, it comes back finer and lighter. Since hair grows in different cycles, treatments are typically spaced about every four weeks to reach your goal of smooth skin. This gives your hair time to regrow so you can treat it with a laser again.

In most cases, multiple treatments are needed to reach your hair-reduction goal. Additional sessions might be recommended to maintain your results. Sanctuary Cosmetic Center offers unlimited treatments for a year.
