If you’re sick of shaving, plucking, and/or waxing your unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is the treatment for you.
Laser hair removal is the process of using a laser or a light-based device to target hair follicles at the root and stop them from producing hair.
In a very action-movie way, the laser locates hair follicles, then hits them with a burst of light that heats them up and causes them to die. Once the follicle is dead, it is less able to produce any more unwanted hair over the long-term.
The hair that’s left in the follicle falls out, and the result is skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom. It’s not permanent, but it is a very long-term solution. Some patients go year without needing a touch up.
Laser hair removal is for anyone who hates spending time shaving, waxing, or plucking. Basically, if you’re tired of having hair in places you don’t want it, laser hair removal is for you!
Laser hair removal works best on hair that has some pigment to it. This is because the laser can better discern between hair and skin by hitting the spot with the highest pigmentation (usually the hair follicle).
The most common areas for women to get laser hair removal are the underarms, lower legs, and the bikini region. Laser hair removal is perfect for women who experience razor burn and ingrown hairs. Here at DermacareHR we offer laser hair removal treatments on:

With the right laser, laser hair removal can work on all skin tones. So whether your skin is dark or light, we have a laser that will work for you.
It used to be that lasers worked only on light skin with dark hair—the contrast making it easy for the laser to find and treat the unwanted hair. But with advances in technology, we can treat all skin types.
At Dermacare, we’re committed to serving every member of our community. Therefore, we not only strive to invest in the latest technologies, but also in technologies that allow us to provide safe and effective treatments for all guests who walk through our door.
We offer three different laser hair removal methods that cover all skin pigmentations.
If you have sensitive skin, you may have wondered if laser hair removal would ever be a fit for you. This is where the MotusAX comes into play. It gets the bragging rights for being the most comfortable. It’s unlike anything else on the market because it lets heat build up in the follicle, while the surrounding tissue stays cool.
The best time to get laser hair removal is whenever you want! The only things to consider when planning your appointment are:
All that we ask is that you shave the treatment area before each of your appointments!
That being said, if you’re looking to have a flawless bikini line by summer, we think it’s best to start early. Laser hair removal is usually a series of 5-8 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart (depending on which laser is being used and which part of the body is being treated).
