What is Laser hair removal?
Waxing is an investment in both time and money, and shaving can cause itchiness, bumps, ingrown hairs, and more. When compared to these other hair removal techniques, laser hair removal truly shines.

HOW IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL DONE?
To permanently remove hair, the hair germinal cells must be killed. This is done by using a laser whose wavelength matches the pigment of the hair. The heat absorbed by the pigment travels to the germinal cells and permanently injures them.
The most popular areas commonly treated by laser hair removal include:
- Bikini area
- Full or half leg
- Full or half arm

Laser hair removal FAQs
Why choose laser hair removal over waxing?
Laser hair removal is usually a safer and longer-lasting solution than waxing. It works by targeting the pigment in each hair follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue. This means that there is less risk of redness, ingrown hairs, and other unwanted side effects.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Most patients describe the feeling of laser hair removal as a snapping sensation. The feeling is similar to being flicked with a rubber band. The level of discomfort depends on each individual’s pain tolerance as well as the area being addressed. Our professionals at White Pearl Med Spa will make sure you are as comfortable as possible during treatment.
