Less Hair, More Fun

Say Goodbye to Shaving
& Waxing for Good

The fight to trim back unwanted hair costs us untold time and money every day, week, and month. Between shaving in the shower or making trips to get waxed every few weeks, we can end up spending tens of hours and hundreds of dollars on hair removal every few months. When it comes to living your best life, just think of everything you could achieve with those extra hours and pennies in your pocket.

Laser hair removal and reduction at Functional Wellness & Aesthetics gives you back time to use on whatever your heart desires. With permanent results, cutting-edge technology, and a procedure far less painful than waxing or plucking, laser hair removal is a quick and enduring solution for unwanted hair.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal is a virtually painless procedure that targets beams of light at hair shafts, bulbs, and roots. This light is absorbed as heat by the pigment in your hair, destroying the hair bulb without harming your skin. Once this hair bulb is destroyed, it won’t produce hair again, and any surrounding hair that grows in that area will be thinner, fainter, and shorter than before.

Lasers can be used to reduce hair almost anywhere on the body, except for areas that are tattooed. At Functional Wellness & Aesthetics, we can safely and effectively remove hair in areas like the legs, chest, back, bikini area, arms, underarms, upper lip and chin.

Laser Hair Removal Benefits

Once your laser hair removal treatment sessions are complete, your days of keeping up with shaving, waxing, and plucking are over. Other benefits include:

  • Permanent results
  • Fewer ingrown hairs and razor burn
  • No scarring
  • Quick and relatively painless procedure
  • FDA-cleared technology for safety

Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Reduction?

Unlike at-home laser hair removal products, our professional laser hair removal procedure is safe for all skin types and tones, from light to dark. The process is safe, effective, and virtually painless for most people. However, if you scar easily or have an underlying medical condition that increases the likelihood of scarring, laser hair removal may not be the best option.

At Functional Wellness & Aesthetics, we will discuss your laser hair removal procedure with you, providing a thorough evaluation of your unique skin goals and needs.

Hair Reduction FAQs

Yes! The concentrated light in our laser hair removal system heats up and renders the hair bulb inactive, which permanently stops the growth of that hair. That said, not every bulb in the target area may be destroyed in one session. Over the course of several sessions, the laser treatment will eliminate at least 90% of hairs in that target area, if not more.

Our state-of-the-art Rohrer Spectrum device has a large target spot size for maximum results. And any hair that does grow back will be finer and much less visible.

The laser hair removal process targets the hair that is actively growing. After a treatment session, it may appear as though the hair is growing more quickly—but in fact, the follicle is releasing the hair. This process takes about 7 to 10 days. For the best results, you may need more than one treatment session. Once you’re done, results can last for years or a lifetime.

Thanks to the Spectrum’s built-in contact cooling system, most of our clients are completely comfortable with the laser hair removal procedure. For most people, this procedure is painless, with some reporting only a slight sensation of increased heat. Laser hair removal is dramatically more comfortable and effective compared to waxing, plucking, nicks with razors, and other hair removal pains.

Although several factors including an individual’s genetics, hair color (dark hair, light hair, ginger hair…), hormone levels, and skin-related ( dark skin, light skin, etc) factors determine the number of laser treatments needed to achieve the best laser hair removal results. Different hair follicles will start to grow hair until they are treated.

Laser hair removal cost depends on the size and the treatment area of the body. To avoid future hair growth we have maintenance laser treatments depending on skin tones, dark hair, and light.
