Laser Hair Removal

Remove unwanted hair for good.

More men are opting for laser hair removal to eliminate unwanted hair. Laser hair removal in St Louis is a safe, effective treatment that targets the pigment in your hair follicles to destroy the hair’s growth centers. Once destroyed, the base of the follicle cannot regenerate new hair. Laser hair removal allows you to put undesirable shaving and waxing behind you and produces a longer-lasting, more effective method to remove unwanted hair for good! 


What it Treats

Laser hair removal is most commonly used to treat the chest, back, shoulders, arms, legs, face, and neck.


Costs vary depending on the area being treated and the amount of treatments needed.


You will need multiple treatments since hair grows in cycles.

Procedure Time

Most sessions are completed in less than 15 minutes.

Recovery Time

Since laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime, and you can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.


Precise and accurate

A beam of light is precisely targeted to the specific area to be treated. The laser penetrates the hair follicles. The pigment absorbs this light, which heats up and damages the hair follicles. It targets the pigment, melanin, in the hair shaft which gives the follicle its color. The more pigment in the follicle or the darker the hair, the more effective the laser hair removal will be. 

Fast and easy process

Laser hair removal is a noninvasive procedure. The laser pulses are quick and last only seconds, and they treat a large area at one time. Most procedures are completed in less than 15 minutes.

Long-lasting results

Laser hair removal in St. Louis is highly effective in destroying most hair follicles permanently, thus reducing the majority of hair follicles in the area treated. If it does grow back, it will be finer and lighter.

Target unwanted hair

During the procedure, a laser handpiece glides over the target area, delivering a precise beam of light that penetrates and damages hair follicles. The lasers used for hair removal specifically target the pigment, melanin, that gives the follicle its color. The higher the amount of pigment in the follicle, the more significant the hair reduction.

You can return to your regular activities immediately after the procedure. You may have some swelling around the hair follicles for the first few hours following treatment, but this resolves itself. To eliminate hair, you must treat hair follicles in all phases of their growth cycle. Multiple treatments are required since only follicles in their growing phase, anagen, respond to laser hair removal.

How it works

Laser hair removal eliminates hair growth at its source – the base of the hair follicle. Laser energy penetrates the skin and targets the hair follicles, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. As a result, you get smooth skin that requires minimal maintenance. Laser hair removal can target unwanted hair in areas such as:

  • Chest
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Beard

And more

Multiple treatments are required to keep up with the hair’s natural growth cycle. Only follicles that are currently in the Anagen or growth phase have sufficient melanin to respond to the laser’s ability to destroy the follicle. By treating the target tissue over 6 to 10 treatments, we are able to eliminate a large percentage of the unwanted hair follicles as they pass through the Anagen phase.
