Today people are very concerned about their appearance. Everyone wants to have soft, silky skin and get rid of unwanted hairs forever and completely. Laser hair removal or electrolysis is the perfect solution.

You can get laser hair removal all over your body or at special areas like underarms and bikini. You get 75-90% permanent hair reduction. The treatment is completely pain-free.

How Is It Done?

It is done with a special machine. LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. First, the gel is applied. It is the conductive agent for the light. Then, the laser follows. Its red light is attracted to the pigment. It destroys the hair in the root so it cannot regrow.

You are advised not to wax or pluck two weeks prior to your treatment. You just need to shave to make the trunk of the hair thicker. In this way the treatment will be more effective. Even the lightest, most sensitive skin can be treated.

Women usually have to come 6 to 7 times every 6-8 weeks. The hair gradually weakens and becomes thinner.

The client literally doesn’t feel any pain. You may feel mild, prickly sensation. It is superfast and very comfortable procedure.

Personal Experience

Personal experiences in laser hair removal vary. Most clients are very satisfied, especially when they see the results. They are well informed by the stuff at the clinics so they are completely at ease during the whole treatment.
