Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the number one cosmetic procedures today – and for good reason! This noninvasive procedure targets hair at the root and prevents future hair growth at its source. More patients are choosing laser hair removal because it’s faster, safer, and more effective than electrolysis, waxing, and other hair removal methods

During a treatment, our MeDioStar laser emits light energy onto the desired body area. The light energy penetrates through the skin and specifically targets the melanin in the root of the hair follicle. The light energy is absorbed and converted to heat, damaging the cells that produce hair growth both within and around the hair follicle. This process guarantees effective hair reduction in the treated area without harming any of the surrounding skin tissue.
In order for laser hair removal to be successful, the targeted hair follicles must be treated during the anagen phase of hair growth, when a hair is still attached to the root where it receives blood supply to grow. Only then can the blood supply and stem cells that produce hair regeneration be terminated.
There are three stages of growth that each individual hair goes through: the anagen phase, catagen phase, and telogen phase. Hairs usually grow at an individual rate and are often in different stages of growth.
The anagen phase is known as the active growing phase when a hair is attached to the skin’s dermis and receives nutrients and blood supply to grow. The catagen or transition phase is when a hair follicle disconnects from the nutrient supply and begins to die. The telogen or resting phase is when the detached hair rests in the follicle until it sheds or is pushed out by the growth of a new anagen hair.
To ensure long-lasting results, multiple treatments are necessary to target each individual hair during its anagen phase. For most patients, a minimum of 8 to 12 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are needed, followed by occasional touch-ups to treat any active growing hairs.
Yes! If you have unwanted hair, then you’re a great candidate for laser hair removal. Most women get hair removal on their underarms, legs, bikini area, and upper lip while men seek hair removal on their backs, chest, and neck. While our competitors are unable to safely treat patients with darker skin types, our MeDioStar laser can treat every patient skin type, even clients with newly tanned skin!
Laser hair removal targets the melanin in the hair follicle. That being said, if your hair has pigment in it, it can be successfully treated. Dark hair like brown and black to dark blonde will see better results while white or gray hair may be less responsive to treatment. In summary, the darker the hair and higher contrast of melanin between skin and hair type, the higher the absorption rate.
You can get laser hair removal essentially on every part of the body. The most popular treatment areas are the arms, legs, upper lip, armpits/underarms, bikini area, back, and chest.
On average, most patients will need a minimum of 8 to 12 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. The waiting time between treatments is needed to target each hair during the anagen phase, when hair growth is noticeable.
Our MeDioStar laser is FDA-approved and features integrated cooling as well as a SmoothPulse mode for painless treatments. The laser penetrates through the skin and specifically targets the melanin in the follicle without harming any surrounding skin. Our expert technicians use custom protocols based on your skin and hair type to ensure the safest, most effective results.
Laser hair removal is a very safe procedure with minimal side effects. You may experience temporary redness, itchiness, and swelling of the skin immediately following your treatment. These side effects will heal within a few hours after your session and there is no downtime required.
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
- Ages of puberty
- Pre-existing sensitivity to light
- Cellulite therapy in the treatment area (wait two weeks)
- Cancerous lesions in the treatment area
- Haired nevi in the treatment area
- History of Keloid scarring
- Tattoo pigment present in the treatment area
- No treatment around the soft portions of eyes
- No waxing at least 3 weeks before the treatment
- Take a before picture
- Shave the treated area down to the skin (no longer than 1mm)
- Wear comfortable clothes
- During the treatment period, waxing/ tweezing are not allowed. They will ruin the hair growth cycle
- Immediately after each treatment, there should be redness and bumps at the treatment area, which may last up to 2 hours or longer. It is normal for the treated area to feel like a sunburn for a few hours. You may use a cold compress if needed. If any crusting, apply antibiotic cream. Some physicians recommend aloe vera gel or some other after sunburn treatment such as Destin. Darker pigmented individuals may have more discomfort than lighter skin clients and may require the aloe vera gel or an antibiotic ointment for a longer period of time post treatment.
- Makeup may be used after treatment unless there is epidermal blistering. It is recommended to use new makeup to reduce the possibility of infection. Simply make sure that you have moisturizer on under your makeup. In fact, moisturizer will help the dead hair exfoliate from the follicle, so use moisturizer frequently and freely on the treated area. Note: Do not use moisturizers containing alpha hydroxy acid.
- Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of dark or light spots for 2 months. Use sunscreen SPF 25 or higher at all times throughout the treatment.
- Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin. DO NOT USE any other hair removal methods or products on the treated area during the course of your hair removal treatments, as it will prevent you from achieving your best results.
- You may shower gently after the treatments using a mild soap as needed. Skin should be patted dry and not rubbed. Under arm areas that have been treated should be wiped with alcohol for 24 hours. You may apply deodorant after 24 hours post treatment.
- Anywhere from 5-30 days after the treatment, shedding of the hair may occur and this may appear as new hair growth. This is not new hair growth, but dead hair pushing its way out of the follicle. You can help the hair exfoliate by washing or wiping with a washcloth.
- Hair re-growth occurs at different rates in different areas of the body. New hair growth will not occur for at least 3 weeks after the treatment.
- Please note: Stubble, representing dead hair being shed from the hair follicle, will appear within 10-20 days from the treatment date. This is normal and will fall out quickly.
