What should I expect with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal begins with an assessment of your skin type and hair color to determine which type of laser will be most effective.

With today’s advances in science, painless laser hair removal in Charlotte, NC in available for virtually any skin type and hair color.
The procedure will then begin with an application of cooling gel, followed by the laser application itself. The procedure can take up to an hour, depending on the number of areas to be treated, and you may experience a slight stinging or burning sensation during treatment. Once completed, you can return to your usual activities, with no downtime or recovery.
You will start to see hair shed over the following days and a noticeable reduction in the amount of hair on the treated area. The full removal of hair from an area requires a minimum of three treatments because your hair grows in phases, and only hairs in the growth phase are affected.
