Our treatments target the melanin pigment in hair follicles, causing a reduction of hair growth in the treated area. Patients may require four to eight treatments, which are scheduled four to eight weeks apart. Each treatment is safe for the skin on either light or dark-skinned patients. We recommend you shave the treatment area one to two days prior to your appointment. It is also recommended that you avoid tanning, plucking, waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis before you scheduled treatments.
