Say goodbye to your razor and hello to laser. Laser hair removal utilizes the latest in cutting-edge technology to remove unwanted hair by applying intense beams of pulsating light through the skin to the follicles. These beams damage the follicles and result in less hair growth with more subsequent treatments.
