Our clinic offers 2 different types of lasers for hair removal, allowing us to target the treatment to your hair and skin type. Laser Hair removal is an excellent option for those who are looking to stop shaving or waxing. Best done over a series of sessions, this is an excellent option that will also benefit several medical conditions.
