Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"I went to JoDee for bikini area laser hair removal. She is so professional and always made me feel comfortable. Each visit was quick, I was in and out so fast I could easily go on my lunch break and get back to the office in plenty of time. Most importantly the discomfort level was minimal. Laser hair removal is not pain free but but this was not as bad as I expected."- L.V. / Google / Aug 04, 2019
"I recently had a girls night Botox party here and it was amazing! There were a lot of first timers at the party and the staff was informative and awesome. Everyone felt comfortable and there was no pressure. The esthetician also stayed for the party and offered hair removal and chemical peels. I will definitely be doing this again!! Loved it!"- K.S. / Google / Jul 29, 2020

Is Laser Hair Removal Right For You?
Laser hair removal is a gentle treatment that works well for many patients. During your initial consultation, we will go over your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if this procedure is right for you. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Experience darker hair with lighter skin
- Maintain good physical health
Our Laser Hair Removal Technique
At the beginning of your procedure, you can relax in a comfortable chair as we clean the treatment area. During the procedure, a technician will smooth out the skin to provide a direct pathway between the hair follicle and the laser. The laser's energy targets and kills the hair follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you need about 3 – 5 sessions over 3 – 4 weeks to see optimal results. Your appointments are spaced out so the treatment areas can heal. It also allows time for dormant hair follicles to become active, which makes the procedure more effective. Using state-of-the-art laser technology, we can target the hair follicle and protect the skin near the treatment area.
What to Expect
While the treatment is relatively gentle, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn because of the laser. Additionally, you may experience some swelling, which will subside in a few hours. After your treatment, you can resume your daily activities, but you should avoid strenuous activities or extended time outdoors for at least 24 hours. This will help the treated areas recover. Before you leave, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions so your skin can properly heal. The instructions will provide information about caring for your skin and reducing discomfort with creams or cold packs.
