Laser Hair Removal On The North Shore, MA

Schedule Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment and Get Hair-Free & Care-Free!

Laser hair removal is the #1 aesthetic treatment among non-invasive aesthetic procedures. So how does it work? It's all down to a simple beam of light! The laser energy is carried through a small handpiece, and this handpiece delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted into heat. The heat is then absorbed by the selected hair follicles, preventing further growth. All of this is done without damaging or affecting the skin's surface. Designed with sensitive skin in mind, laser hair removal technology is suitable for all skin types and can be used on any part of the body except the under brow.

After reviewing business after business after business, I came across North Shore Laser Center and I have finally found my place for my laser treatments! I have never felt more comfortable in this environment with Patricia. She is the best, she’s quick and efficient! I had never gotten laser before and upon meeting her and getting my consult I decided right then and there that I wouldn’t go to anyone else because she made/makes me feel so comfortable.

How To Prepare For Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment

Preparing for your laser appointment is much easier than you might expect. Unlike waxing or shaving, your hair does not need to grow to a certain length for the treatment to be effective. Before your appointment:



Ensure the treatment area is cleansed and free of oils, make-up, self-tanner, etc.


Avoid sun exposure before your treatment, as it is crucial that you avoid the risk of hypo- or hyperpigmentation.


Shave the treatment area

24-48 hours before your treatment.

Who Is Most Suitable For Laser Hair Removal?

Clients with coarse, dark hair and lighter skin are typically the most suitable for laser hair removal and often see the most effective results. Nowadays, with technological changes, specific laser machines are highly safe and effective for those with lighter hair and darker skin tones. It is still important that laser hair removal is performed very carefully on these clients to avoid hypo- or hyperpigmentation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal

1. Who Should Not Get Laser Hair Removal?

Those with lighter hairs (blonde, gray, red) may not be suitable for laser hair removal or want to stick to waxing for the best results. Clients who are pregnant, taking certain medications such as acne medicine, have genital herpes or are prone to cold sores, have raised scars, or have or currently have skin cancer should also stay away from laser hair removal services. Consulting your doctor or laser technician before treatment is the best way to determine if laser hair removal is safe for you. 


2. How Often Should You Go For Laser Hair Removal?

Depending on the area you are treating and your hair color and skin type, laser hair removal sessions may look different for each client. It is commonly recommended that clients book their sessions about 4-6 weeks from one another to get the best results. Clients can expect to have anywhere from 6-8 sessions to remove unwanted hair effectively. Some clients may require more depending on the results from previous sessions and their hair type.


3. What Can I Expect During My Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Many clients may experience slight discomfort during their treatments, especially during their first session, as they do not know what to expect. Laser hair removal involves tiny zaps that target the hair follicles without burning or harming the skin around them. It can be described as flicking rubber bands on the skin, but the more sessions you experience, the more tolerable the treatments become. Laser hair removal sessions are usually quick, depending on the area, and most likely take no more than 25 minutes for larger areas. Smaller areas may only take 10 minutes to complete. Most clients don't mind the discomfort and find ways to breathe through it and get their minds off it, as they know the results will be well worth the slight discomfort! 


4. Are There Any Side-Effects Of Laser Hair Removal?

One of the most significant advantages of laser hair removal is there are minimal to no side effects after each treatment! Clients may experience slight redness in the treated area, but it should only last 24-48 hours. This redness is called follicular edema and is common in many clients. More rare side effects would include hypo- or hyperpigmentation if the correct laser was not used for a client's specific skin and hair type.
