Laser Hair Removal

Say goodbye to unwanted hair, and hello to smooth skin!

Laser hair removal is an increasingly popular treatment, due to the demand for smooth skin. Lasers have come a long way and Pure Cosmetics keeps up with the latest medical-grade lasers to eliminate unwanted hair, while keeping you as comfortable as possible. Please see below for our frequently answered questions.

Am I a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

We are able to treat every skin type on virtually any surface of the body, as long as the hair is darker in pigment. Unfortunately, those with red, blonde or gray hairs are unable to be treated with laser hair removal due to the follicle having no pigment. We require new patient consultations for every patient to make sure you are not on any medications or do not have a past medical history that is contraindicated for laser treatments.

Does it hurt?

Our highly-trained, certified laser technicians put the safety and effectiveness of every treatment first and foremost. We try to minimize any discomfort by using technology equipped with cooling tips, ice balls, and a thin layer of gel. Although specific technique may vary from technician to technician, please let your technician know if you are experiencing any discomfort so that they may adjust accordingly.

Reminders for Patients

  • Let our staff know immediately if you have a change in medication or history, as this may increase photosensitivity.
  • Avoid self-tanner, sun or tanning bed exposure to the areas treated for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to your appointment.
  • Shave the entire area to be treated 1-2 days prior to your appointment. If unable to, our technicians can help shave the area for a $15 shave fee.
  • Avoid waxing, tweezing, depilatory  the hairs in the area to be treated. Doing so removes the follicle, which is the part of the hair we need to treat.
