A. Laser hair removal is among the most effective ways to get smooth, hair-free skin. A laser destroys the hair root by heating it, leaving a silky surface.

Q. DOES IT HURT?
A. There may be some mild discomfort when the laser is activated. However, it generally fades immediately after.

Q. HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
A. Procedure times depend on the area being treated and can range from 15 minutes for the bikini area to 1 hour for full legs.

Q. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
A. We take our laser procedure safety and quality very seriously. Depending on which area of the body is treated, each session can cost as little as $49 per session.

A. We recommend between 6-8 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart for effective, long-term results.
