What is Gentle Hair Removal?
If you razor it, we laser it! Say goodbye to waxing, tweezing and shaving. Laser hair removal is an energy-based treatment that provides permanent hair reduction. The Hair Removal System is a laser treatment that Hollywood Body Laser Center offers to target the hair follicles at the root for permanent hair reduction for all skin types. Our Hair Removal is easy on all skin areas. It offers less discomfort and delivers amazing results.
It’s a fact hair grows!
There are 3 phrases of hair growth. Anagen – The growth stage when a strand of hair is at its strongest. Catagen – The transitional stage begins to come loose from the follicle. Telogen – The shedding stage when the strand falls out and is replaced by a new hair. This takes 150 days or more to complete the hair growth cycle. You hair will just keep growing. Hair Removal is a safe and effective treatment no matter what your skin type. The lasers pulses destroy hair follicles at the root in the anagen stage when the hair is the strongest. You would go in for this treatment every 6 weeks or so and over time you’ll zap all the hairs in the targeted area. It takes about 22 minutes or so for each treatment time. 80% of patients report permanent hair loss after 4 to 6 treatments. Hollywood Body Laser Center’s hair removal treatment system features the patented Cool Air Device to rapidly cool the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?
ANSWER: Treatments take place in our office. Your treatment specialist will use a small hand piece to deliver an intense but gentle burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin. Therapeutic heat then safely and effectively removes unwanted hair.
Is our Hair Removal safe for darker skin tones?
ANSWER: Yes! Other laser hair removal treatments don’t cater to all skin types, but there’s a Hair Removal treatment that’s right for you, no matter what your skin tone.
How long does a laser hair removal treatment take?
ANSWER: A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated. Both legs can often be treated in as few as 15 minutes, as can an average-sized man’s back.
Is laser hair removal painful?
ANSWER: Some patients may feel slight discomfort, which has been compared to snapping a rubber band against the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by our patented Cold Air Machine.
How many treatments will I need?
ANSWER: Multiple treatments are required to achieve the full hair removal effect. That’s because hair grows in three stages: Anagen (the growth stage). Hair is thickest and darkest, so laser treatments are most effective. Catagen (the transitional stage). The hair begins to loosen from its follicle. Telogen (the shedding stage). The hair falls out to make room for new growth. The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of six weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage.
How do I prepare for a Hair Removal treatment?
ANSWER: For about six weeks prior to treatment, you should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing. On the day of your treatment, skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before your treatment. Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, a prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.
What can I expect after treatment?
ANSWER: A cool compress or gel pack may be applied for additional comfort after your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve in a few hours
What precautions should I take after treatment?
ANSWER: After your laser treatment, prevent sun exposure by applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above). In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers.
Are there side effects?
ANSWER: Permanent side effects are rare and may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days.
Are these treatments covered by insurance?
ANSWER: Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures. Consult your insurance carrier for conclusive information.
