Most Popular Areas for Men’s Laser Hair Removal

We’ve talked about the most popular areas for laser hair removal before, but we think men deserve their own post on this trending topic.

Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular among men. And why not? Men want a more permanent solution to their unwanted hair, too.  If you are ready to quit shaving for good, put your best face forward, look better naked (or all of the above), keep reading to find out more.

The Basics of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments sought out by men. It is an effective method to get rid of body hair for good. Advanced lasers target the pigments in hair follicles, heating them up and causing damage that inhibits hair from regrowing in the future.

It is important to note that this process is successful only during a specific stage of hair growth. For this reason, several sessions are necessary to ensure all hair in the focus area is sufficiently treated.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is popular for a reason. There are a lot of benefits. And in fact, many patients come back to seek treatment in other areas. Some of the great reasons for choosing laser hair removal include:

  • Permanent Results
  • Minimal Discomfort
  • Few to No Side Effects
  • Quick Recovery with No Downtime
  • No More Razer Burn, Red Bumps, or Cuts

Common Areas for Laser Hair Removal in Men

While laser hair removal is a great option for anyone with unwanted hair, some of the best areas to target differ between men and women. Let’s talk about some of the most popular areas men choose for laser hair removal.


The chest is one of the most popular areas for men’s laser hair removal. Many men want to feel more confident taking off their shirt, and laser hair removal can be one way to make that a reality. A smooth chest can also help define muscles and give a more chiseled look. Shaving or waxing your chest can be seriously time-consuming and expensive since it is a large area. Plus, it is prone to uncomfortable side effects such as razor burn and ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal can be a great option for a smooth, touchable chest.


Back hair can be a source of embarrassment for some men. It is a large area, and it is obviously pretty hard to reach, making it difficult to shave or wax. Back hair can be dense and pretty unsightly. We don’t blame you for choosing this popular area for hair removal treatment.

Face and Neck

Facial hair can be quite annoying, especially when it comes to shaving daily. Imagine waking up every morning and not having to worry about shaving. Many hours (and dollars) are wasted on this burdensome routine. Men can opt for laser hair removal on their face and neck, which can eliminate the need for daily shaving, and leave you with a clean-cut look 100% of the time.


The pubic area is another place to consider laser hair removal. It can be uncomfortable and irritating to shave or wax the pubic region, scrotum, or rear. These areas are also extra prone to the negative side effects of temporary hair removal. Plus, who wants to deal with doing that more often than is necessary? With laser hair removal, you can permanently remove all or some of the hair in this region.

Are You Ready for More Confidence?

Wouldn’t it be nice to say goodbye to shaving, waxing, and trimming once and for all? If the answer is yes, schedule a consultation with our experts today and take action on the body you want.

5 Reasons Why Microneedling is a No-Brainer

A beautiful young woman with glowing skin considering microneedling.

As we get older, our skin loses its youthful appearance and elasticity. This can be caused by various factors such as aging, sun exposure, pollution, and stress. Fortunately, there are options to help improve the texture and appearance of your skin.

One excellent choice you may have heard of is microneedling. And once you try it, you may wonder why you didn’t jump on the bandwagon sooner.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling involves the use of a device that contains several tiny needles that puncture the skin to stimulate the natural healing process. This results in the production of collagen and elastin, which helps improve the texture and appearance of your skin.

Why Choose Microneedling?

If you are considering a cosmetic treatment to improve and enhance your skin, microneedling is a great option. Here are the top five reasons why microneedling is a no-brainer for your skincare routine:

Microneedling is Natural

Unlike other skin treatments that use chemicals or synthetic materials, microneedling is an all-natural treatment that leverages your body’s own natural healing process. The tiny needles in this treatment penetrate the first layer of your skin, causing microscopic damage that triggers your body’s natural healing mechanisms.

When your body senses this damage, it amps up collagen production, which helps improve the texture and appearance of your skin naturally from the inside out. You experience these benefits without any synthetic chemicals or surgery.

Microneedling is Minimally Invasive

This brings us to the next exciting point. Another great benefit of microneedling is that it is a minimally invasive treatment with literally no downtime. The needles used in the treatment are so small that the punctures they create are not visible to the naked eye. Although the treatment triggers your body’s natural healing process, it does not cause significant visible changes to your skin.

Any redness or irritation should resolve very quickly, and most patients can return to work or their usual activities right after the treatment. Of course, your practitioner will provide you with simple aftercare steps, such as wearing sunscreen to protect your skin.

Microneedling Treats a Variety of Skin Conditions

Microneedling is a versatile treatment that can improve numerous skin issues simultaneously. Because collagen and elastin are so important, stimulating the production of these proteins has multiple benefits. Microneedling treatment can:

  • Shrink Pores
  • Minimize Redness and Rosacea
  • Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Fade Scars and Stretch Marks
  • Improve Acne
  • Tighten Skin

You do not have to pick and choose which issues to focus on; microneedling improves them all!

Microneedling Enhances Absorption of Products

This all-natural treatment is excellent on its own, but if you want to boost results, consider combining microneedling with topical skin care products. The tiny channels created by the needles mean that serums and other treatments can penetrate the skin more deeply than when they are simply applied to the surface, meaning better results.

Microneedling is Affordable

When it comes to self-care, investing in your skin is wise. But many cosmetic treatments come with a big price tag. Many patients find that microneedling, however, is surprisingly affordable, and because your results can last for months following your treatment, you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Are You Ready to Improve Your Skin?

Anyone who wants better skin fast and naturally should consider microneedling treatment. Of course, microneedling is only one of many cosmetic treatments available to improve skin texture and appearance. If you are ready to find out more about microneedling or any of the treatments we offer, schedule your skincare consultation today.

Prep Your Skin for the Perfect Date Night

Have a big date (or any big night out) coming up? Of course you want to look amazing. And the best way to be sure you glow is to prepare ahead of time for your big day. Find out what you can do the day, week, and month before your big night.

1-2 Days Before

The big takeaway for the day before and day of your event is to be gentle and avoid surprises!

Don’t Use New Products

If you know you have a big night coming up, test any new skincare products or makeup several days in advance. You want to avoid experimenting with new products directly before you need to look your best. You never know if your skin will have a negative reaction to an ingredient in an unfamiliar product.

Cleanse Well

Be sure you wash your face every night before bed leading up to your big date night. Old makeup, dirt, and other build-up from throughout your day can lead to blemishes if left on your skin overnight. Choose a gentle cleanser to soothe skin, followed by your go-to moisturizer or night cream. On the day of your date, gently clean your skin before applying your makeup so you have a fresh canvas to work with.

1 Week Before

In the week leading up to your big night, nourish your body and prep your skin.


Avoid exfoliating the day of an event because it could stress your skin. Instead, exfoliate a few days ahead so you will reap the benefits without any redness or irritation. Choose a gentle scrub or mask and use gentle pressure when applying. Don’t overdo it. When exfoliating at home, less is more.

Hydrate Your Body to Hydrate Your Skin

Everyone knows drinking plenty of water is important for your health, but it can also do wonders for your skin. Without enough water, skin looks dull and dry. If you are low on water, your body won’t “waste” this precious resource on your skin when it needs it for more critical functions. But when your body has enough water, it will keep skin hydrated and healthy-looking. Water also rinses away toxins and free radicals, leaving glowing skin behind.

2 Weeks to 2 Months Before

If you have advanced notice before your big date night, you can even go for a professional treatment to really put your best face forward. Some treatments should be done ahead of time so that minor side effects have time to fade away and maximum results can appear.


Get radiant skin, shrink pores, smooth skin tone, and even texture with a HydraFacial. This comprehensive but gentle treatment cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes skin. A HydraFacial may occasionally cause mild redness immediately after treatment. Results appear in just 3-7 days!

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel deeply exfoliates the skin using professionally formulated solutions to remove the outermost layer of skin. This treatment uncovers a bright, clear, glowing complexion. We tailor our peels to your exact needs and skin type for a customized experience.

You may experience redness, swelling, and peeling for a couple of days after treatment but full results in 1-2 weeks.


This treatment uses super-fine needles to penetrate the surface of the skin, triggering the body to produce collagen and improve skin cell turnover. Microneedling reduces fine lines and improves skin tone.

You do not want to have this treatment immediately before a big event. After microneeding, there will be some redness, swelling, and flaking. These side effects are temporary and will fade after a few days. At this point, skin will start to improve, and full results will appear about 4-6 weeks after treatment.

New to Botox? Here’s What You Need to Know

Is it getting harder and harder to ignore those wrinkles where there once was smooth, youthful skin? Wrinkles and lines are a natural part of aging, sure, but we all know that we don’t actually have to accept them if we don’t want to.

If you are considering taking action to seek out smoother skin, keep reading to find out everything you need to know about embarking on the Botox journey.

Common Botox Questions

Botox may be the first treatment you think of when you consider anti-aging procedures. This is for good reasons; it is popular, effective, and accessible. Of course, it is understandable that you want to be informed before considering injectables or any other anti-aging treatment.

What is Botox, Exactly?

Botox is a brand name for a neuromodulator used to fade wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. There are other brands and types of neuromodulators, including another common brand, Dysport.

You may have heard Botox referred to as a “toxin,” and that is accurate. Botox is a carefully developed and diluted form of Botulinum Toxin, which has a paralytic effect, hence its ability to inhibit muscle contractions.

Is Botox Safe?

Injecting a toxin may sound scary, but when done by a trained professional using an FDA-approved formulation such as Botox and Dysport, this treatment is considered very safe. As we mentioned, the serum used in wrinkle treatment is diluted and used in safe amounts so that the effect is to inhibit muscle contraction but cause no damage to the body.

How Does Botox Reduce Wrinkles?

Even if you understand that Botox prevents muscle contractions, you may wonder what that has to do with wrinkles. While there are other contributing factors to wrinkles, the muscle contractions that occur when making facial expressions are a big one.

By inhibiting these contractions and relaxing muscles, Botox and Dysport reduce the appearance of existing lines and wrinkles over time. In addition (and perhaps even better), neuromodulators help stop wrinkles from getting worse and prevent new ones from forming.

Will I Look “Fake”?

Botox sometimes gets a bad reputation for making people look expressionless or frozen. When you choose a reputable and experienced injector and customize a treatment plan for your individual goals, your Botox or Dysport results should be subtle and natural-looking.

When is the Best Age to Get Botox?

You do not have to wait until wrinkles get deep and noticeable to start Botox treatment. In fact, many patients choose to begin Botox as a preventative treatment in their 30s. Once wrinkles form, Botox may not be able to fade them entirely. Although if you already have lines and wrinkles, Botox can be used to reduce their visibility as well as to prevent worsening wrinkles. It can also be used in combination with other treatments, such as dermal fillers, to maximize results.

Will Botox Hurt?

Botox is injected into the treatment area, often to multiple sites, with a very thin needle. A topical anesthetic can be used to numb the area, making Botox and Dysport treatments virtually painless. Once the actual treatment is complete, your face may feel different, and a little “funny” since the muscles will be relaxed, but this sensation is not painful at all, and you should adjust very quickly.

Ready For Younger-Looking Skin?

Neuromodulator injections are used by millions worldwide. They are a tried and trusted way to reduce wrinkles and prevent the signs of aging.

Are you are ready to reduce your wrinkles with Botox or Dysport? If so, or if you have more questions about these treatments, book a consultation with our expert injectors today!


How to Maintain CoolSculpting Results

Woman with flat abs after CoolSculpting.

Many patients spend years eating a healthy diet and exercising diligently, only to still have trouble with losing fat in a certain area of their body. This can be a struggle and, worse, a fruitless one. While working on a particular body part will build muscle, it is impossible to target your fat loss to one place.

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary body contouring treatment to spot-reduce fat and finally slim those trouble areas without the expense, risk, and recovery time of surgery. And once you get the results you were striving for with CoolSculpting, you will want to maintain them.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting works because fat cells freeze before healthy other tissue. So when a precisely controlled cool temperature is applied to the treatment area, fat cells will be damaged while surrounding cells remain intact. The body then absorbs the damaged fat cells. Treatment is quick, and downtime is minimal. 2-3 sessions may be required to reduce fat in the treatment area by 20-30%.

How Long Do Results Last?

Once the fat cells are frozen and whisked away by the body over the weeks following treatment, they are gone forever. But you shouldn’t get lax about your health and fitness! It is still possible for your body to create new fat cells or for the remaining fat cells to grow larger, which is the last thing you want after achieving your new body.

Tips for Maintaining CoolSculpting Results

Here are our top strategies for maintaining your CoolSculpting results for good. Remember, following these lifestyle guidelines are not only good for your physique but also for your overall health.

Eat Right

As the saying goes, abs are made in the kitchen – not the gym. A healthy diet is the most important aspect of maintaining your slimmer body. Start with avoiding sugar (especially added sugars) and heavily processed foods. A diet made up of whole foods, including plenty of vegetables, muscle-building proteins, and healthy fats, is best.

Drink Water

We know you’ve heard it before, but keeping hydrated is key. Staying well hydrated is essential for your body to work efficiently, and it can even aid in fat loss and maintaining a healthy weight. Thirst can often be mistaken for hunger, so drinking lots of water can keep you from overeating. Avoid empty calories and added sugar by sticking with water instead of soda or juice.

Make Exercise a Regular Habit

Try to get at least 30 minutes of activity a day. Depending on your health and ability, exercise can include anything from walking to weightlifting. A well-rounded plan including both cardiovascular exercise and strength training is a good bet. However, the important thing is to choose something you love and move your body regularly. You should always talk to your doctor to find the best plan for your fitness level.

Make CoolSculpting Your Motivation, Not Your Excuse!

Make sure you have the right mindset. CoolSculpting is not an excuse to eat poorly and slack on exercise. In fact, if you do this, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Instead, think of CoolSculpting as your fitness catalyst. Focus on how great it feels to see your CoolSculpting results, and use that feeling to motivate you to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Getting Started With CoolSculpting

If you are close to your optimal weight but need a little help to get there, CoolSculpting may be the answer. To find out if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting and kick-start your journey to your dream body, schedule your free consultation today!



5 Signs of Aging you can Fix with Fillers

Woman lifting skin considering dermal fillers for anti-aging.

Aging skin is a common concern. As we age, our skin can slowly change in ways we don’t anticipate. Dermal fillers may be the answer you didn’t know you needed. In fact, dermal fillers have taken the beauty industry by storm, with over 1.8 million procedures being done in 2021 (according to The Aesthetic Society).

What are Dermal Fillers and What do They Do?

Dermal fillers are a category of injectable treatments that are a minimally invasive option for addressing many of the signs of aging. Fillers are usually made from synthetic versions of compounds found naturally within the body.

A series of injections are used to deposit the filler beneath the skin. Dermal fillers plump the skin from the inside and also stimulate your body to produce collagen, a structural protein that makes skin look youthful. There are several types of dermal fillers that have different benefits depending on the area of the face and the cosmetic concerns you are treating.

Anti-Aging Benefits

Fillers are highly sought after for a variety of purposes. They can be used to change the shape of certain features as a minimally-invasive alternative to plastic surgery. They also can combat these 5 common signs of aging.


As we age, we lose collagen, which we mentioned is key in providing structural support to our skin. Without this support, and after years of repetitive facial expressions, wrinkles take hold. One option is invasive facelift surgery to pull the skin tighter and diminish wrinkles. But if that is too drastic, fillers may be the way to go.

Fillers subtly plump skin under wrinkles, smoothing them out. In addition, the introduction of the filler promotes your body’s healing response and actually triggers the production of additional collagen in the area. Over time, this process will add to the effects of facial fillers on fine lines and wrinkles.

Sunken Appearance

Another result of collagen loss is a sunken appearance. As the structure within the skin and tissue becomes weak, fat deposits beneath the surface of the face shift. This can lead to volume loss that results in a tired, sunken look.

Fillers come to the rescue by literally filling in these spaces, adding back volume where it has been lost. In this way, fillers lift your facial features, brightening your appearance to make you look younger, healthier, and more well-rested.

Sagging Skin

As we mentioned, structural proteins such as collagen and elastin dwindle as we age. Skin becomes less elastic, and when this combines with the loss of volume that occurs, skin can stretch and sag. Unfortunately, like volume loss, other injectables like Botox cannot correct sagging skin.

You can treat sagging skin without surgery by strategically utilizing fillers. Strategic placement of fillers can help to tighten the skin and fill in lost volume. The stimulation of collagen production will also improve the look of sagging skin.

Thinning Lips

Another telltale sign of aging that can sneak up on you is thinning lips. And with pillowy lips being a current trend, this can be disheartening. As with other aging signs, thinner lips are a result of lost collagen and diminishing fat deposits.

Fillers are the perfect solution for lips that are losing their pout. Fillers can give lips a shapely, fuller appearance that can instantly transform your face.

Receding Chin

A receding chin is a lesser know feature of aging. Over time, we can lose tissue and even bone in this area. At some point you might notice that you appear to have a weaker chin than you were used to having in your younger years.

Fillers allow you to add volume along the jawline, resulting in a more defined chin. This more sculpted look can take years off of your appearance and even make you look more slender.

Ready to Try Fillers?

If you think fillers might be the answer you’ve been looking for, don’t wait! Contact our office to discuss fillers or any of our anti-aging treatment options.


Fast-Track Your New Year’s Resolution with CoolSculpting

Fit beautiful woman on new years.

Year after year, the top new year’s resolutions always revolve around getting in shape. We all want to look better and feel better about ourselves, so we decide that this is the year we are going to exercise more, start that new diet, and lose the fat for good!

But the reality is that many people don’t see results, get discouraged, and give up on those resolutions too soon. And even if you accomplish some of your goals, stubborn trouble spots may still leave you unhappy with your results.

Why CoolSculpting Can  Help Your Fat Loss Resolution

You may need a healthy diet to melt away those extra pounds and exercise to build muscle, but often that combination is just not enough to get all the way to your goal. But you can use CoolSculpting to give your new year’s resolution a jump start and target those tough-to-conquer areas.


Despite popular belief, it is impossible to spot-reduce fat through exercise. You can do a million sit-ups, and while you may build that six-pack, it won’t specifically decrease fat in your midsection, so you may not be able to see it. That means that, even with diligent work in the gym, you can still be stuck with trouble spots.

CoolSculpting precisely targets your treatment area. Unlike exercise, you are able to literally melt away fat from your treatment zone. That means specifically removing fat cells from:

  • Abs
  • Hips
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Below the butt
  • Arms
  • Love handles

Exclusively Target Fat

Eating a nutritious diet is a great way to get healthy and even lose some weight. And since CoolSculpting is a fat reduction technique, not a weight loss tool, it is important to include good eating habits in a healthy lifestyle.

But without exercise (and even sometimes with it), a strict weight-loss diet may result in not only fat loss but also muscle loss. On the other hand, CoolSculpting specifically and exclusively targets fat, leaving muscle and other healthy tissue completely unaffected. This is because your fat cells will freeze at a higher temperature than your other cells, which means that CoolSculpting can precisely eliminate only the unwanted fat and not the desirable muscle nearby.

No Surgery, No Downtime

Get back to the other parts of your resolution – eating well and hitting the gym – without missing a step. Fat reduction surgery, like liposuction, is effective. But it can be costly, not only on your wallet, but with your time. Typically, it will take 4-6 weeks to return to activities such as exercise and up to 3 months to fully recover. You can get back to exercising within just a couple of days with CoolSculpting, and in fact, regular exercise will promote healing and help maintain results.

Long Lasting Results

One great benefit of CoolSculpting is permanent results. CoolSculpting works by “freezing” fat cells. The damage caused kills the cells, and the body removes them naturally. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone forever. However, it is possible for your body to create and accumulate new fat cells, so a healthy lifestyle is key to maintaining your results.


Nothing is more discouraging than slow or stalled progress. It can be frustrating when you make changes and work hard but don’t quite reach your goals. CoolSculpting can give you the jump start you need to make the big changes this new year!

Brand New Year, Brand New You

If you want to make a real change this year, get started with CoolSculpting. Act fast, so you don’t miss December’s special pricing on your first CoolSculpting treatment.

What to Expect from Laser Tattoo Removal

Business woman hiding a tattoo.

Tattoo removal can be intimidating and mysterious. How, exactly, does laser tattoo removal even work? Does it hurt? And what else should you expect from treatment?

While the tattoo removal process is a marathon, not a sprint, modern techniques mean that tattoo removal is more effective, and more comfortable, than ever before.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

When ink is deposited in the skin, your body automatically works to remove it since it is a foreign substance. However, the ink particles are simply too big for your immune cells to manage. When laser energy comes in contact with the large ink particles, it breaks them up into tiny, more manageable pieces. Your own body is then able to remove them, using its natural healing processes.

Initial Consultation

Before a laser tattoo removal, you will have a comprehensive initial consultation. It is important to us that you thoroughly understand your treatment and that we can fully discuss your tattoo removal plan and expectations. Because we understand that tattoo removal can be an important decision, your initial consultation is completely complimentary.


Many patients wonder whether tattoo removal hurts. While it is true that tattoo removal can be uncomfortable, you can receive numbing cream or an injection to minimize pain. And despite tattoo removal’s bad reputation, most patients describe the sensation as similar to getting their tattoo.

The good news is that the PicoSure laser is a fast, effective, and gentle option when compared to other lasers. The individual removal treatment sessions will not take as long as the tattooing process. And just like receiving a tattoo, you should feel free to ask for a break if you need one.

How Many Tattoo Removal Sessions Will I Need?

Tattoo removal is not a one-visit treatment. It will take multiple sessions to remove a tattoo. When you add together the number of sessions required and recovery time between sessions, it may take up to a year to get the results you hope for.

But don’t be discouraged. Each person and each tattoo is different, which is why it is important to talk to an experienced provider.

Tattoo Removal Recovery

Recovery is an important part of the tattoo removal process. This is the time the body will do its magic by clearing the ink and healing the skin. You will need to wait at least six weeks between sessions to allow for this process to fully take place.

After treatment, there may be swelling, tenderness, or redness. Do not be alarmed if the skin becomes slightly raised, blisters appear a day or two after treatment, or your tattoo appears darker. These side effects are normal and will go away shortly.

You will have to avoid direct exposure to the sun after treatment. Aftercare instructions will be thoroughly explained at the time of your treatment, and it is important you follow them carefully.

Tattoo Removal Results

It is important to know that results may vary. Not every tattoo will completely disappear with the anticipated number of treatments. However, lasers have been used to effectively fade and remove tattoos for decades, and patients and persistence often pay off when it comes to this process.

The great news is that the results are completely permanent, meaning once the ink is removed, it is not going to come back. For that reason, if you are serious about wanting a tattoo removed, the expense and time commitment is likely worth it in the end. You will be able to enjoy years of your life without the tattoo that you are unhappy with.

How Much Does Tattoo Removal Cost?

The cost of tattoo removal is significantly higher than getting a tattoo. The procedure requires cutting-edge equipment operated by highly trained and experienced practitioners.

Furthermore, it is also not possible to guarantee the number of sessions. However, at your initial consultation, we will discuss the cost per session and be able to estimate how many treatments may be required to get the results you want so that you have an idea of the investment you are going to be making.

Why Winter is the Perfect Time for Laser Hair Removal

Happy woman with smooth legs in winter.

It’s getting cooler out, and you may be covering up more, so you may not be thinking about your unwanted body hair. But the truth is winter might be the best time to consider permanent laser hair removal.

The cooler months are actually ideal for a bunch of reasons. If you want beautifully smooth skin by the time swimsuit season rolls back around, consider starting your laser hair removal treatments now.

Understanding Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal works by targeting concentrated light energy at the individual strand of hair. This energy heats up and damages the pigments inside the hair, reaching all the way down to the hair follicle. At this point, the follicle is rendered inert, meaning it will no longer be able to grow hair.

Why Choose Winter for Laser Hair Removal?

Because of the way laser hair removal works, there are a few factors that make this time of year the better choice when it comes to planning out your treatments. That’s why we recommend starting now for optimal results for spring and summer weather.

Minimize Sun Exposure Before and After Treatment

Laser hair removal works best on non-tan skin. The laser affects the pigmentation in the hair, so it works best on darker hair up against lighter skin. You will want to maximize the contrast between your skin and hair for best results and to avoid skin sensitivity in the treatment area.

Following your treatment, you will also be advised to avoid sun exposure to the area. You will be more susceptible to sunburn, heat rash, and pigmentation issues for the days following your treatment, so avoiding the sun is essential.

It is far easier to stay out of the sun in the winter months, making this part of your treatment plan simpler to follow. We spend more time indoors and tend to wear clothing that covers up our skin. You probably won’t have to go too far out of your way to minimize your sun exposure before and after treatment in the cooler weather.

You Can’t Wax or Pluck Before Treatment

While shaving is okay, we will recommend you don’t wax or pluck hair (or use chemical hair-dissolving treatments like creams) for several weeks before your treatment so that hairs are in the proper stage of growth for effective laser hair removal. If you prefer these as your go-to hair removal methods, it will be much easier to avoid them in the cooler months when you are more likely to be covered up.

See Maximum Results by Summer

Because laser hair removal only works at the growth stage of the hair’s life cycle, some hairs will escape the effects of treatment. Patients require a series of several treatments to make sure to affect all of the hairs in the treatment area during the optimal time frame. Each of these treatment sessions will be spaced a few weeks apart. For that reason, your full treatment schedule will take a few month’s time to complete. But don’t worry. Starting now means you will see your full results by the time the warmer weather makes its appearance.

Ready to Get Started?

We think you will love the results you get with laser hair removal. Just imagine not having to waste time and energy shaving, waxing, and doing whatever you can to get rid of unwanted hair. Not to mention dealing with the pain and skin irritation that comes along with those methods.

Wondering whether you are a candidate for laser hair removal and want to get soft, smooth skin by the time you break out those summer clothes? Contact us for a consult today.

Most Popular Areas for Laser Hair Removal

Woman showing off smooth skin after laser hair removal

If you’ve ever considered laser hair removal, you may already have a good idea of which area of the body you would treat. Laser hair removal saves you time, makes your life easier, and boosts your confidence. So, of course, it may be hard to pick just one area!

Here are some of the most common places to have laser hair removal. And remember, you don’t have to choose just one! Lots of patients begin by treating one area and eventually choose to get additional laser hair removal treatments on other body parts.

About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is safe and effective on most body parts. The laser is concentrated light energy, which is used to target the melanin (pigment) inside of each strand of hair. As this energy is absorbed, it damages the hair follicle (the tube within the skin that produces hair). This damage makes the follicle unable to produce hair in the future.

Because this treatment only works at one stage of a hair’s growth cycle, it usually requires more than one session to get optimal results. But once you achieve your results, say goodbye to shaving and waxing!

Best Places for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal works best on thicker, darker hair, and lighter skin. But it can be effective on anyone; it just means you may require a more comprehensive treatment plan.

As we mentioned, just about every area of the body can be treated with laser hair removal. Some areas are more popular than others simply because they make a bigger impact on a person’s life. In addition, certain areas respond better to treatment.

Bikini Area

Hair in the bikini area usually responds very well to laser hair removal treatment. Compared to the rest of the body, hair in this area tends to be darker and thicker. What’s more, this area can be problematic for other hair removal methods, such as shaving and waxing, as the skin is sensitive and susceptible to irritation and ingrown hairs.


The underarm area is another excellent place to consider laser hair removal. This area requires frequent shaving, which can result in irritation and a dark, shadowy appearance. Underarm hair also responds well to treatment, particularly for those with thick, dark hair in this area.


Hair of the face can be embarrassing, particularly for women. However, it is more common than many people think, especially as we age. Facial hair tends to be thinner and lighter, so it may require more treatment sessions. However, because of the visibility of this area, treating the face means more confidence and improved self-image.


Hair on the legs is typically thicker and darker than in other places, so the legs usually respond great to laser hair removal. This is another area where convenience plays a big role. Imagine not having to shave your legs multiple times per week but, instead, having silky smooth skin 24/7.


Like facial hair, arm hair can cause embarrassment and make you want to cover up. Other hair removal methods, such as shaving, are difficult on the arms because no one wants to see unsightly stubble. This makes laser hair removal a fantastic option for the arms.

How to Choose

With so many areas to choose from, it can be hard to pick one to start with. Of course, which area will make the biggest impact will depend on your unique needs and body.
