Laser Hair Removal


Free yourself from shaving... forever! 99% of all skin types can benefit from laser hair removal.

Laser Hair Removal is now the second most popular cosmetic treatment according to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. It is second only to Botox injections!

The procedure is simple... after you shave the affected areas 1-2 days prior to your appointment, Dr. Woodall, Dr. White, or Ms. Berka will prepare your skin and adjust the laser settings appropriately for your skin and hair type. While you both are wearing eye goggles, s/he uses a laser that emits a highly concentrated beam of light to target the hair follicle. To minimize discomfort, the laser blows cold air or sprays a cold mist on your skin just prior to emitting the laser beam. It feels like a quick pinch each time the laser is fired. And that's it!

A series of 5 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart achieves the best results. Only approximately one-third of your hair follicles are actively growing at any one time. Since the laser only targets active hair follicles, it is important to space the appointments out in order to get the maximum results.

Please contact us for a CONSULTATION with our cosmetic consultant, Hannah, to learn more about finally becoming free from shaving... forever! Call 803.329.6630 or book your appointment online!
