Laser Hair Removal, Cosmetic Procedure to Rid the Body and Face of Unwanted Hair, in the Las Vegas Area

Hair removal is a time-consuming daily routine for many people. While traditional methods such as waxing, tweezing and shaving are effective for removing the hair, they do not provide long-term solutions for hair removal – never mind all those bumps, nicks and ingrown hairs! Over a decade ago, technological advancements led to the creation of a hair removal system that not only eliminated these annoying problems, but also provided a long-term hair reduction solution: laser hair removal. It is now one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It is used for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.

Laser hair removal is one of the fastest-growing methods of ridding the body of unwanted hair. Another reason for its popularity is that laser hair removal may result in permanent reduction of the hair. Dermatologists use lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Thanks to advances in technology, most people can safely have laser hair removal. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair!


Laser hair removal treatments are quicker than you might expect. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second.

You will save money in the long run. With the permanent reduction of hair, you no longer need to purchase endless razors, shaving cream, depilatory creams, and you will no longer need to have monthly waxing appointments. You can eliminate and prevent ingrown hairs. No need to grow hair between treatments. Unlike waxing, you can shave between treatments. The benefits of laser versus other forms of hair removal are abundantly clear.

The appeal of laser hair removal stems from its effectiveness, efficiency and convenience. It can be performed virtually anywhere on the body where you experience unwanted hair growth.

Whether your reasons are aesthetic or medical, unwanted hair is easily addressed with lasers. Unwanted hairs may be on the chin, armpits, back and groin. Patients with excess hair such as those with polycystic ovary syndrome or issues associated with hair growth such as pseudo folliculitis barbae may benefit from laser hair reduction. Dark hair and lighter skin color are the best candidates for this treatment. However, our laser is designed to treat even the darker skin toned patients. With multiple and continued treatment, that unwanted hair is a thing of the past.
