Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

You can get rid of unsightly hair by using hair removal cream products, leaving you with chemical burns, shaving that is time-consuming and can leave you with stubbly skin, and painful waxing. If none of these methods sound appealing, try laser hair removal. Think about it. No more plucking, tweezing, and shaving. Finally, you have a hair removal method that leaves you with beautiful and smooth skin.

To remove hair, lasers use a concentrated beam of laser light to remove unwanted hair. A laser emits light absorbed by the hair’s pigment or melanin. The light energy is converted to heat and damages the hair follicles that produce hair. Damage to the hair follicle delays future hair growth.

You may need multiple treatments for initial hair removal. Maintenance treatment after the initial treatment is also needed. Laser hair removal is best if you have light skin or dark hair, but it can be used on all skin types. Lasers selectively target dark and coarse hair and leave the surrounding skin undamaged.

The Cervello diode laser uses innovative technology with a double cooling system and an exclusive sapphire crystal that eliminates unwanted light refractions and guarantees precision for the highest level of treatment.


The Cervello system is virtually painless since it cools the sapphire tip which in turn cools your skin.

Yes. The Cervello has optimum effectiveness for all skin types from type I to VI.

Depending on the area being treated depends on the time needed for treatment. For example, the upper lips will take much less time than the legs.

Side effects include skin irritation, temporary discomfort, redness, and swelling. These signs and symptoms are normal and disappear within several hours. Laser hair removal does not usually cause blistering, crusting, scarring, or other skin texture changes. Laser hair removal is not recommended for eyebrows or eyelids.
