LASER HAIR REMOVAL IN WOBURN, MA
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair anywhere on the body. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. Pigment in the follicles absorbs the light and the unwanted hair is destroyed. This procedure is one of our most popular for people looking to have beautiful hairless skin.
The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair, however, we have the opportunity to treat darker skins for hair removal as well.

What Are The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal?
For people who have dark or coarse hair on their bodies, laser hair removal can be a great alternative to other forms of hair removal such as shaving or waxing. Shaving can be a hassle as it only works for a very short amount of time and can lead to skin irritation or be difficult to do around sensitive areas like the face or groin area, and waxing can be quite painful and the results again only last for a rather short amount of time.
Laser hair removal also works well for people dealing with ingrown hair skin conditions and because of the precision of the laser is very good at dealing only with the coarse unwanted hair while leaving the surrounding skin tissue undamaged.
How Effective Is Laser Hair Removal?
This quick procedure offers quick results for patients wanting to deal with unwanted hair and for most patients the effects become somewhat permanent in as little as 3-7 sessions. The laser is able to remove hair in an area about the size of a quarter every second so sessions can last from a few minutes to an hour depending on the area of hair removal. And laser hair removal can be done on any body part including:
- Hands & Feet
- Back & Shoulders
For best results, it is recommended that a patient avoid sun exposure for about six weeks after treatment since this can lessen the effectiveness of the procedure and occasionally lead to skin complications.
