Laser epilation is the first medical breakthrough in hair removal in over 100 years. Unlike other treatments, the TKS laser hair removal process is easy — requiring no creams, no pre-treatment waxing, and no needles.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
What does laser hair removal feel like?
The level of discomfort during laser hair removal is determined by the darkness and thickness of the hair itself. Thicker, darker hair will absorb more energy and therefore produce more heat at the level of the follicle. What the patient feels is usually described as a sharp burning sensation.
What are the most popular areas treated with laser hair removal?
The most popular treatment areas for women are underarms and bikini. The most popular treatment areas for men are the neck and back. If you have questions about where you can or cannot receive hair removal treatment, please contact us today.
What kind of results can be expected?
Patients should expect to achieve about a 1/3 reduction in hair per treatment session. Follicles can only be destroyed if they are actively generating hair; therefore, a patient should expect that once all of the current unwanted hair is gone, they will still require periodic treatments for any new hair growth.
Are there any risks with laser hair removal treatment?
Generally, the risks of laser hair removal involve burning, blistering, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. These all involve the melanin in the skin competing with the melanin in the hair.
How many treatments will be needed?
Usually, the initial course of treatments is 3-5. Maintenance treatments will be required periodically and are usually single treatments.
Are the results permanent?
The follicles that are destroyed will never generate hair again. But not all of our follicles are active at one time; therefore these cannot be destroyed until they start producing hair.
