Gentle Aesthetic Laser Treatments


How does the laser work for laser hair removal?

The  Neo is designed for safety, efficient long term hair removal, and pain-free performance.  Laser light is absorbed by melanin, the cellular substance that colors the hair follicle at its base.  The laser light travels down the hair shaft and kills the follicle at its base.  Using a save energy pulse, nothing touches your skin but  the beam of laser light-no messy gel or cooling system is needed.

How many treatments will I need and how often?

Different colors and textures of hair may respond differently to laser treatment.  Hairs in all growth stages must be treated by the laser to achieve permanent hair reduction. The average amount of treatments is between 6 and 10. With laser hair removal timing is everything. For optimum results consistent treatments should be spaced 3 to 5 weeks apart.

How does the laser work for laser facial, skin tightening and other treatments?

The light energy is absorbed by the melanin in blemishes and sun damaged skin for a brighter, smoother, more youthful complexion.  Skin texture can be improved by the laser’s stimulation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin tissue.

How many treatments  will I need and how often?

The average amount of treatments is between 4 and 6 depending on the amount of skin damage and/or skin tightening desired.

Is the procedure painful?

Most of those who have tried other lasers report that the Neo is much gentler and more pleasant. You should feel just a mild heat sensation on the skin. A slight redness of the skin, if it occurs at all, will typically fade within a few hours.

What preparations should I make?

Prior to laser hair removal, you should completely avoid tweezing, waxing, bleaching or use of a depilatory for at least 3 weeks prior to your appointment.  Shaving is totally acceptable.  If you are tan it is advisable to restrict your time in the sun for at least a week prior to any treatment. On the day of treatment, whether for hair removal or skin treatments,  the area must be completely devoid of any lotions, make-up and deodorant.

Are there any contraindications?


  • Those who have healed poorly after other types of laser treatments.
  • Those who are prone to skin discoloration.
  • Clients using photosensitizing medication such as Accutane, tetracycline, or Retin-A.
  • Anyone who is pregnant.
  • Clients who are tanned should wait for the tan to fade for best results.
  • Herpes Simplex Virus can be activated by the laser.

Why should I chose laser hair removal over waxing, tweezing or electrology?

Speaking as both a professional and through my own personal experience you will never be rid of excessive hair using these 3 methods and here’s why:

When you wax you are ripping the hair through the skin, leaving behind the papilla which provides the blood supply to the follicle. Your body perceives trauma  and immediately begins  reparation  which stimulates the follicle increasing thicker hair reproduction.  The result-a bumper crop.  Besides the pulling and stretching of the skin, warm wax repetitively  used is a breeding ground for bacteria.

Tweezing, although sanitary, creates the same result as waxing.  The more you tweeze, the stronger and thicker the hairs become. With one exception-eyebrows.  It is not known why but repetitive  eyebrow tweezing works. 

Electrology is painful and not cost effective.  It is wonderful for sculpting eyebrows although a professional tweezer along with magnification will bring the exact same results.  It is also the best alternative for clients who are not candidates for laser hair removal-those with white, blonde or light red hair. Ask anyone who has had electrology and they will tell you that it takes years of treatments to eliminate hair one strand at a time.
