Laser Hair Removal | Permanent Hair Reduction
Laser hair removal is the most popular permanent hair reduction method on the market. It provides a quick and easy way to rid yourself of unwanted body hair from head to toe. Laser hair removal is FDA-cleared and can treat almost every skin type. Furthermore, advanced technology makes this treatment less painful and more effective than ever. Not only will you achieve lasting results, but you will also enjoy the pleasures of having silky, smooth skin without tweezing, waxing, or shaving.
At Better Body MD we offer laser hair removal treatment with both the Fotona and Triton systems.

During your initial consultation, a clinical aesthetician will determine which system will work best for your skin and hair type.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal permanently reduces unwanted hair by disabling the hair follicles’ ability to grow. Treatments target the pigment or melanin in the hair’s follicle and hit it with a burst of a high-energy wavelength of light. The melanin absorbs the energy, which causes the follicle to heat up until it is irreversibly injured. Once the follicle is damaged, it can no longer support proper hair regrowth. This overall process results in permanent hair reduction.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Hair grows in stages. Hair removal lasers are only effective on hairs that are currently in the growth phase of the hair growth cycle. This growth phase is known as the anagen phase. During this phase, hair contains the highest level of melanin. It is necessary to focus the laser energy on the follicle when it includes this amount of melanin.
Since only 20-30% of hair is in the anagen stage at any given time, you will need to undergo a series of hair removal sessions. Your treatment specialist will determine the number of sessions, depending on your treatment area, the type of laser used, and your response to the procedure. Patients will typically need 6 to 12 treatments to achieve their desired level of permanent hair removal. During your free consultation we will discuss the best treatment plan for achieving your aesthetic goals.
Laser Hair Removal Treatment Areas
Laser hair removal provides permanent hair reduction to any area of the body. The most common and popular treatment areas include:
- Face (eyebrows, sideburns, ears, upper lip, etc.)
- Bikini Zone
Are Laser Hair Removal Results Permanent?
Laser hair removal treatments are FDA-cleared to reduce pesky, unwanted body hair. When the high-intensity bursts of light hits the hair follicle, it damages the root beyond repair. The follicle is disabled, unable to regrow. The process provides permanent hair reduction.
Laser Hair Removal with Fotona Laser System
Providing the best technology in cosmetics, we use the Fotona hair removal laser system. This system features high-performance Nd: YAG lasers equipped with FRAC3 technology. This new innovative system effectively targets individual follicles with a combination of selective and homogenous photothermolysis.
Fotona’s Nd: YAG lasers feature pulse-control technology with a proprietary three-dimensional treatment pattern that makes hair removal safe for everyone.
Laser Hair Removal with Inmode's Triton System
In order to better treat patients with lighter skin tones, we have added Inmode’s Triton machine to our laser hair removal treatment options. Triton features simultaneous dual wavelengths that allow us to treat a greater range of skin types. This technology also allows for better hair follicle destruction, with many clients reporting that fewer sessions were required. Additionally, the wider treatment area available with the Triton device allows larger surface areas, like the legs, to be completed in under 30 minutes.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
We use high tech hair removal lasers to ensure all patients experience a virtually painless and comfortable treatment. The state-of-the-art laser systems require short sessions and fewer treatments for your convenience. Moreover, the systems come with a skin-cooling feature that aids in soothing the skin during each treatment for additional comfort.
