We are using one of the most powerful lasers on the market: Elume Diode! This allows for a fast, effective, and painless hair removal. Clients will achieve best results with about 6 treatments, sometimes more, sometimes less, spaced about 6 weeks apart. Results are dependent on client skin tone and hair type. This will be addressed at your visit, we will spend 20 minutes discussing your treatment, past medical history, medications, and your hair removal goals. You will have the opportunity to ask any question, and we will do a "patch test" prior to starting the process! Any additional questions beforehand, please call or text: 959-215-8550. Most appointments take less than 45 minutes.
