Laser Hair Removal

Eliminating unwanted hair on the body saves both time and money and results in smooth, nick-free skin. Laser hair removal can be performed on almost any area of the body where unwanted hair exists.  Laser hair removal is ideal for all skin types, including darker complexions. Our hair removal laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, not the pigment in the skin. Meaning this treatment works best on black or brown hair and is not effective on blonde, gray, or red hairs.

Our Gentle Max Pro hair laser system provides super-fast, comfortable treatment with it’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device. It minimizes discomfort by releasing a quick burst of liquid cryogen before and after each laser pulse. This laser technology allows for less painful, faster, more effective safe treatments. Your session can take a few minutes or up to an hour, depending on the area or areas treated.

Like with all of our lasers a consult is needed before treatment to make sure you are a good candidate and go over any contraindications.

*must wait 14 days post any injections for facial treatments*

Before: Avoid retinol 5 days prior. Cannot receive treatment with active cold sores or a sunburn.

During: You will experience a mild snapping sensation.

After: You will leave with mild redness to the area treated.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Laser hair removal works by using a laser with just enough energy to selectively absorb the melanin in the hair follicle. The light is converted into heat, disabling the follicle, and preventing further growth.

  • Most people tolerate the laser hair removal treatment well. Since everyone is different, the pain tolerance is different for everyone, but some describe the treatment as uncomfortable.
Others describe the treatment like a warm rubber band hitting the skin. There are factors such as location of the treatment and coarseness of hair that will impact the way the laser feels.

    To increase the comfort of our patients, our GentleMax Pro laser incorporate a cooling system. This continuous flow of chilled air helps to minimize the discomfort and side effects of the treatment. Aesthetica also offers a prescription anesthetic that is applied before the treatment to numb the area being treated if necessary. 

  • The number of treatments required is different for everybody. It is determined by the area to be treated, skin color, hair color, and coarseness. Hair grows in multiple phases as well, so it is impossible to get all of the hair in a single treatment.
