Are you tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing? Do you get razor bumps or acne-like breakouts when you get rid of unwanted hair? If so, you may want to consider laser hair removal.

When the hair regrows, most patients see noticeably less hair than before. The hair also tends to be finer and lighter in color.
Laser hair removal can be repeated when the hair regrows.
