Ditch the Razor, Try our Laser!

Laser hair removal is one of the best ways to simplify your routine and stop worrying about waxing, shaving and tweezing. Everyone has unwanted hair, and it can be a pain (literally!) to deal with. Regardless of which area you're looking to treat, laser hair removal can help. Treatments are fast, easy and have very minimal discomfort! The days of plucking and epilators are over - with laser hair removal, you can get rid of that hair for good.

Laser hair removal uses Broad Band Light, an innovative light-based technology that utilizes pulses of light energy to gently penetrate into the skin and specifically target and disable unwanted hair follicles. Hair grows in three stages, and when it’s in the anagen (growth) stage, it is most vulnerable to laser therapy. BBL selectively heats the full length of the hair follicle, cutting off its supply of nutrients and disabling its growth. Here at Juvly, we utilize different types of lasers to treat a variety of skin types and complexions, including darker skin tones. Everyone's skin is different, which is why we completely customize your treatment from start to finish to ensure you achieve the best results possible.

LHR

Laser hair removal can be performed on almost any area for any skin color or hair type, but hair color is the most important factor when it comes to treatment. Dark hair is treated the most effectively, while treatments on red, blonde, and gray hair are generally less effective. During your initial consultation, we will determine if you’re a candidate and which laser type you'll require. For lighter skin types and hair color the Alexandrite laser is often used, while the YAG laser is best used on individuals with darker skin tones.

You may be wondering what terms like YAG mean - it’s simply the laser’s wavelength and strength! The long-pulse YAG is widely considered the safest wavelength for laser hair removal on darker skin tones. We’re proud to offer the Cutera Excel HR laser, one of the few that can safely treat darker skin tones where epidermal protection is a critical factor. When treating darker skin types contact cooling is the preferred method given its ability to cool the treatment area before, during and after each laser pulse. The excel HR laser system is the only hair removal system with the combined power of YAG and contact cooling, providing continuous cooling and giving you maximum comfort along with fantastic results!

Many clients have described laser hair removal to feel like a rubber band snapping against their skin. Compared to waxing and other kinds of hair removal, this treatment has very little discomfort. If you do find the treatment uncomfortable, we may be able to offer topical numbing for the area! The full process typically requires a series of 6-10 sessions to achieve a 80-90% hair reduction. With every treatment, you'll progressively see fewer and fewer hairs return. Finishing the recommended number of treatment sessions is crucial, as it ensures you’ll see maximum results for your laser hair removal!
