Laser Hair Removal is the ideal choice for men or women who are tired of having to shave regularly. Ridding unwanted hair on virtually any part of the body including the face and neck, arms, underarms, back, chest, legs, bikini area, tops of hands and feet. We utilize powerful 810nm Diode laser technology with a comfortable cooling tip to chill the skin before, during and after the whole treatment course.
