Are you frustrated with how unwanted hair affects your appearance? Do you wish you could eliminate embarrassing areas of hair on your body, but shaving or waxing seems too painful or like too much upkeep?

What Is Laser Hair Reduction?
Laser hair reduction for men is an non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option that alters how body hair grows. While this treatment does not necessarily permanently remove hair, it can slow how rapidly hair grows and reduce the thickness of body hair.

What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
Laser hair reduction treatments are performed as outpatient procedures in the comfort of our Washington office. Treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive, and there is no set downtime associated with a procedure. The length of treatment will vary for each person and treatment area.
During a laser hair reduction treatment, a member of our team will apply the laser directly to the treatment area. The light from the laser is absorbed by the pigment of the hair, generating heat. This heat damages the part of the hair follicle responsible for hair growth.
Achieving and maintaining results from laser hair reduction requires a regular series of treatments. While the length between each treatment will vary based on your personal hair growth cycle, they are typically recommended to be 4-6 weeks apart. It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for treatment and remember results will vary for each person and treatment area.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are concerned that unwanted body hair is making an embarrassing and unwanted impact on your appearance, laser hair reduction may be for you! This treatment is typically most effective on lighter skin tones with darker body hair colors, but new technology allows more diverse skin and hair tones to benefit from treatment. A consultation with our team in Seattle can help determine if this treatment is the right fit for you.
It is important to remember this treatment method may not permanently remove hair from your body. While achieving total hair removal may be possible, it is intended to reduce how quickly and thick the hair grows. Results will vary for each person.
