Laser hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair. Common treatment locations include legs, underarms, upper lip, chin and bikini. However, it’s possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area — except the eyelid or surrounding area.

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. Although the procedure effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. It typically takes multiple treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatments might be needed as well.

Do you have hair that you want to get rid of? You’ve come to the right place…

Hair color and skin type influence the success of laser hair removal. We use the Candela Gentle Max with both the 755nm Laser wavelength (Alexandrite) and the 1064nm Laser wavelength (ND-YAG). This gives us the technology and capacity to treat lighter skinned as well as darker skinned clients.

Our technicians at Uplift Spa are trained and certified Medical Laser Aestheticians. All first time clients will receive a free consultation to ensure effective and safe laser hair removal treatments. We skin type using the widely accepted Fitzpatrick Scale. If we discover any possible contraindications, we will delay the treatment. Your comfort and safety is of utmost importance to us.
