Laser Hair Removal and Hair Growth
Healthy hair grows in three stages. First, the growing or anagen stage. Second, the resting or telogen stage. Third, the transitional or catagen stage.
During the first stage, hair is susceptible to laser energy. Hair in the second and third stages of growth is resistant to it. At any time, various percentages of body hair will be in each of these phases. As a result, laser hair removal is unlikely to be successful without multiple treatment sessions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is It Painful?
Our patients report that our advanced, Motus AX, laser hair removal treatments are not painful and do not produce the “rubber band snap” or “bee sting” sensation that some lasers do. They also report that a topical anesthetic is not necessary to be comfortable during the treatments

With our advanced laser, Motus AX, we can safely perform laser hair removal treatments any time of the year – including summertime when some patients have tan skin.
How Does Your Laser Work To Remove Hair On Very Pale And Very Dark Skin?
Our advanced laser hair removal system can effectively remove hair on skin that is very pale with light hair follicles up to dark skin with dark hair follicles because it combines the most effective wavelength with a state of the art technology that enables us to treat even the darkest skin safely.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
Treatment time varies based on the size of the area treated, however, we have the fastest and most advanced laser available. As compared to most laser hair removal systems, our treatment times are cut in half and range anywhere from 3 minutes for an upper lip to 30 minutes for an upper leg.
How Many Treatments Does it Take?
While older lasers needed at least 5 treatments to clear 90% of the hair, with darker skin needing as many as 10 treatments, our new state of the art laser can treat everyone in 5 treatments or less.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. It pulses for a fraction of a second and vaporizes the pigment, disabling numerous follicles to eliminate or significantly impede hair growth.
