Hair Removal

Hair removal, also known as epilation or depilation, is the deliberate removal of body hair. We have two types of hair on our bodies. Vellus hair is soft, fine, and short. Most women have vellus hair on their chest, back, and face. Terminal hair is coarser, darker, and longer than vellus hair. It’s the type of hair that grows on your head. On guys, terminal hair begins to grow on the face and other parts of the body such as the chest, legs, and back.

Recommended For

  • Almost everyone who has unsightly body hair they would like to have permanently reduced is a good candidate for laser hair removal.
  • Although the results of the procedure will depend on the amount of hair in the area and the patient’s skin type, laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair.



  • Laser hair removal treatment includes a laser that will emit heat energy, absorb the light, penetrate deep down the root of each hair strand and damage the follicle.

  • Effective for most skin tones and hair types, this damaged follicle will not be able to produce any further hair for a long time, sometimes never.

  • Our skin is not adversely affected by the treatment because our skin cools down more quickly than the hair follicles.

  • The treatment ends with the application of creams to cool down the skin and minimize the risk.
