The proper Laser equipment does matter when searching for your Laser Hair Removal (LHR) Treatments. We encourage you to ask questions and shop around. At Foxy Laser we use CynoSure® Elite+™ and can treat ALL SKIN TONES. The CynoSure® Elite+™ sends waves of safe and effective laser energy deep into your hair follicles. As those follicles heat up and their natural growth cycle is impacted, within a couple weeks those targeted hairs shed away. The next time hair grows back it’s finer, thinner, and lighter. With each treatment, less and less hair continues to grow back until eventually, hair stops growing back at all. Laser hair removal can drastically reduce hair growth in almost all areas. Our laser treatment is close to painless, and leaps and bounds more comfortable than having the hair ripped out with waxing strips.
Our goal with laser hair removal is to treat you so you can stop coming in for hair removal, not to keep you as a lifetime customer. (We would love to have you returning for other services, but not laser).
The best way to know if laser hair removal is right for you is to come into Foxy Laser for a FREE consultation. In some cases, it’s possible to have new hair growth. This is most common during periods of hormonal fluctuations. If you ever have new hair grow in the treated area again, you can always come back to Foxy Laser for touch-up treatments as needed. Common areas for laser hair removal treatment are the face, underarms, bikini area, legs, and back. However, I’ll laser anywhere you have unwanted hair. Whether you’re tired of keeping up with regular hair maintenance or just ready to stop worrying about the razor burn, painful plucking, and inconvenient wax that it comes with, using laser technology to reduce hair in each of these areas can provide comfort and confidence.
Who can receive LHR? Men and Women regardless of gender, ethnicity, age or sexual preference. Anyone from fair to tanned/olive skin tones to darker brown skin with brown or black hair follicles. The laser targets the pigment or melanin in your hair follicles.
No matter your background or reason for making an appointment, Foxy Laser is a safe place for all.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
The total number of sessions necessary will vary by individual, but an average of at least 8-12 treatments is required for optimal results depending on the situation. There are a small percentage of clients that do not respond to the laser hair removal process.
For best results, consecutive laser sessions are required to slow hair growth with occasional maintenance treatments being a possibility. With all laser systems, research has confirmed that through the course of treatments, hair is reduced in number, and becomes finer in texture and lighter in color.

-Histamine/Hives: some clients develop raised papules similar to hives. This irritation usually subsides in a few hours.
-Blistering during treatment may be an indication of sun exposure.
