On the day of your procedure, you will lie down comfortably in our private treatment room as your treatment area(s) is cleaned to eliminate oil, dirt, and creams. During the procedure, a team member will smooth out the area to create a clear pathway between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the Cynosure laser will focus on and destroy the follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again.

An effective solution for the reduction of facial and/or body hair, laser hair removal offers lasting improvements. While you may enjoy the results of the procedure for years, it's actually considered semi-permanent since some hair may continue growing. However, patients find most of their hair follicles are dormant once their treatment plan is complete. If stray hairs are still growing after treatment is complete, they are typically softer and easier to manage. More laser sessions may be needed to address new growth and any stragglers.
Follicles grow in phases. When some follicles are growing, other follicles are resting.
