Laser Hair Reduction

Permanent Laser Hair Reduction – Full body – Men and women

Permanent laser hair reduction is one of the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the United States today. It makes sense why — the results of this procedure are long-lasting and sometimes even permanent. Waxing, shaving, and tweezing are a tedious part of many people’s aesthetic routines. On top of being time-consuming, waxing and chemical hair reducers can often cause irritation and sometimes remove the uppermost layer of the skin. Laser hair reduction eliminates the hassle of being hairy, bringing patients long-term or even permanent hair reduction results.

Microneedling

The Rejuvapen™ treatment is a micro-needling treatment that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. Since micro-needling enhances the production of collagen the treatment can reverse the signs of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation. Fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced and an overall healthier appearance of the skin will occur.
