Laser hair removal in Highland Park, IL

Get your laser hair removal done by someone you trust.

If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorbs the light, which destroys the hair.

How it works

Just before the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair. Skin color will also play a factor in your treatment. You may schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later. You’ll get treatments at our Highland Park office until hair stops growing.

We cannot guarantee 100% hair removal, because the laser is only effective when the hair is in the anagen growth phase. Hair can remain dormant for years at a time. We tell our patients to expect 90% hair removal, assuming they adhere to their recommended treatment sessions and schedule. The treatment schedule is extremely important to outcomes.

Our Results

Not all hair is removed in a single treatment. This is because hair strands exist at different growth stages, some in which hair is pigmented and others where it is not. To be absorbed by laser energy, hair strands must have pigment. Hair strands in a non-pigmented growth stage cannot interact with laser energy. That means they will not be removed until they reach a growth stage in which they are pigmented. As you may suspect, white hair and light-colored hair require more treatments than dark hair. For these reasons, we can’t guarantee the removal of 100% of hair.
