Aerolase laser hair removal is a popular option for removing unwanted hair. This is the second most often performed treatment throughout the United States.

- Upper lip
- Bikini area
Hair removal has been substantially improved through the new technology incorporated by Aerolase. There is absolutely no discomfort involved with this procedure.

Attending an important affair with unwanted hair can be embarrassing.

This enables the hair follicles to be effectively treated without causing any damage to the surrounding skin. Your hair grows in several different stages. The laser targets the hair in the growth phase. The laser emits a concentrated beam to target the follicles of these specific hairs.
The energy of the laser is converted into heat. Once the hair follicle has been heated, the follicle is unable to become any larger. This allows the treatment to prevent anymore growth within the follicle of hair. This method has been proven efficient over the last twenty years. Lasers have been successfully used to remove hair since the FDA approved the treatment in 1997. Studies have shown that the decrease of hair is stable and lasts for a significant period of time. The process is effective, gentle and safe. The reason multiple treatments are necessary is because only the hair in the growth phase can be treated.
