Almost everyone has unwanted hair somewhere on their body. Unfortunately, traditional hair removal routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weeks, but none of them last forever – and therein lies the true beauty of laser hair removal.
How it Works
Laser hair removal is a medical treatment that uses a laser – an intense, pulsating beam of light -to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
At The Institute, we utilize lasers that are safer and more effective for all skin types.
Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair faster and more effectively than traditional methods.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that is unlikely to grow there again.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for the laser hair removal treatment?
Laser hair removal can be applied to all areas of the body and on all types of skin (even tanned or dark skin).
- Facial hair removal
- Leg hair removal
- Underarm hair removal
- and more!
Does it hurt?
The laser treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band.
Slight redness or localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.
How many treatments are required?
Typically patients will see results in 4 – 6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone, hair color and several other factors. Your doctor or practitioner will talk to you about variables that may affect your individual results.
