Laser Hair Removal

The premiere choice for permanent hair reduction due to its ease, efficacy, speed, and relative low cost.

Looking to achieve your smoothest body yet and streamline your beauty & grooming routine? At the Bucky Body Center, we offer Laser Hair Removal, largely considered the best solution for permanent hair reduction for effortless, silky, hairless skin and an alternative to routine shaving or waxing. Best of all, this treatment is pain-free with no downtime, so you can resume daily activities right after as you await your lasting results to take effect.

Why We Love Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the premiere choice for permanent hair reduction due to its ease, efficacy, speed, and relative low cost. Other key benefits include:

Permanent hair reduction in treated areas

Reduces ingrown hairs associated with shaving and waxing

Minimizes money spent on costly waxing appointments

Eliminates the need for waxing, shaving and plucking

A solution for hirsutism, an excess of male hormones that cause coarse, dark hair to grow on the neck, back and face

Can treat hypertrichosis, a condition causing excessive hair growth in men and women

What to Expect During Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Before your procedure, your Bucky Body Center aesthetician will provide you  with a pair of protective eyewear. Next,  the laser will be used to send pulses of light to the predetermined treatment site and to target the melanin—the substance that gives hair and skin color—within the hair follicle. During a Laser Hair Removal treatment, the melanin within the hair follicles will absorb the light and this light energy then converts to heat and damages the follicles.1 Over time, and with the appropriate number of individual sessions, the hair follicles can be irreparably damaged and cause permanent hairlessness where the skin has been treated.

Preparing for Laser Hair Removal

Prior to your Laser Hair Removal treatment, it’s important that you: 

  • Refrain from shaving, plucking waxing for six weeks prior to your treatment
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for six weeks prior to your treatment
  • Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes to your appointment

After Laser Hair Removal

There is zero downtime or recovery. For optimal results, we ask patients to: 

  • Continue to refrain from shaving, plucking and waxing the treated areas until you’ve finished your treatment cycles and hair at the treatment site has stopped growing
  • Avoid direct sun exposure on treated areas
  • Wear sunscreen when outside
  • Apply cool compresses if skin feels irritated or looks slightly red

Laser Hair Removal Results

In the weeks following your treatment, your treated hair will fall out. Depending on your individual goals, most people will need a series of routine treatments to truly achieve permanent hair loss in the treated areas. We recommend you schedule treatments four to six weeks apart, to catch hairs at all stages of the hair growth cycle, until hair stops growing.
