Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair. What sets Ivy Aesthetics lasers apart from the rest, is that our laser hair removal is virtually painless. Gone are the days of a lot of pain and dreading your appointment.

It is a medical procedure that uses a beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This damages the hair follicles which inhibit or delay future hair growth. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments may be needed as well. The laser is most effective on dark hair, but it can be used successfully on all skin types.
