"What a gorgeous experience! I've been to a few medical spas before for skin care and body wellness but none as beautiful and well equipped as KIND. First, you're warmly welcomed into their waiting area and offered a refreshment. I could seriously just hang out in their waiting room! Each service is given along with education, and all of their procedures are the most current & effective available treatments. They seriously know what they are doing and execute it so well. Pricing is also very fair- and for a higher quality treatment than I have gotten elsewhere. I moved all my treatments over to KIND and am so happy. I feel more youthful and refreshed thanks to their guidance!"- M.S. / Yelp / Dec 31, 2019

Hair removal with a laser is a gentle treatment that is helpful for most people. At your consultation, you will discuss your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other techniques for hair removal (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have light skin and dark hair
- Are in overall, good health
At your procedure, you will relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and creams. During laser hair removal, a technician will smooth out the skin to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will target and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents it from growing back. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to get your optimal results. Your sessions will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. The revolutionary laser technology we use at Kind Health Group is able to target the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin in the treated area.
What to Expect
While this procedure is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn when lasers are used. After your treatment, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or extended time outdoors for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your treatment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to minimize any discomfort.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser hair removal cost?
The cost of your laser hair removal will rely on several factors such as the severity of hair loss and the number of treatments that are needed to achieve optimal results. During your initial consult, we will create a custom treatment plan and then estimate your costs. Our MedSpa accepts many payments and typically offers discounts on multi-treatment packages.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent as there will still be some hair that will pop up after your treatment. This is because hair has an active and inactive growth phase and if the follicle is dormant, then the laser cannot target those hairs. A secondary procedure can be performed to eliminate any stragglers or new hair growth.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Although laser hair removal may be uncomfortable, it's not considered painful. Many patients find the treatments tolerable but to ensure extra comfort, a numbing cream can be applied prior to your treatment. For patients who are used to getting waxed, they report that laser hair removal causes much less discomfort.
