Laser Arm Hair Removal
Whether you are a man or a woman, excess arm hair can make you feel self-conscious or less attractive. Fortunately, new technologies in laser hair removal make getting rid of excess arm hair fast, easy, comfortable and affordable.
How Laser Arm Hair Removal Works
Laser arm hair removal uses special frequencies of light energy to penetrate the hair shaft. The pigment in the hair root absorbs light, and the resulting heat actually kills the hair root.
While laser treatments don’t kill the follicle itself, it is difficult or impossible for another hair to grow in its place. So laser hair removal is nearly permanent.
There will be substantial reduction in arm hair after just one treatment. Because the hairs grow at different intervals, five to eight treatments may be needed if you desire complete hair removal. But most patients simply want to thin or reduce the hair on their arms.
Laser hair removal is a much faster process than electrolysis – because lasers can kill many hair roots at one time. During electrolysis each hair follicle must be individually killed. Laser hair removal is also a much more comfortable process than waxing or electrolysis.
While early lasers only worked on dark hair on light skin, we offer a variety of different FDA-cleared lasers that allow us to customize our hair removal treatments to work with virtually any hair and skin color.
Underarm Laser Hair Removal
Shaving the underarms is one of the most miserable grooming tasks women face. And for those with thick, dark, course or fast growing underarm hair, it can be a never-ending process.
Imagine what it would feel like to never have to worry about shaving under your arms again! This can be a reality with laser hair removal.
Shaving underarms can result in ingrown hairs, cysts and razor burn and bumps. But laser hair removal solves these issues. After the dead hair “sheds”, the pores in the skin close-up, leaving only smooth skin – with no more razor bumps or “5 o’clock shadows.”

Arm Hair Removal for Men
Women aren’t the only ones who can benefit from laser arm hair removal. Men of certain ethnicities and nationalities may be more prone to thicker, darker, courser, arm hair than others – and may wish to have it thinned out a bit. Other men may be fine with the hair on their forearms, but self-conscious about excessive arm hair growing above their elbow.
Laser hair removal is ideal to thin – or completely remove – hair from anywhere a man’s body, including: arms, chest, back and even the genital or “bikini” area.
