Laser Hair Removal

Gianna Skin & Laser is pleased to provide you the freedom from waxing, shaving, plucking, and electrolysis, with the ability to return to your normal activities immediately. Gianna offers state-of-the-art, FDA-approved, laser technology to permanently reduce darker shades of hair from the facial area, bikini line, underarms, back and more. Gianna's Advanced 1064 Yag Laser passes through the skin without damage to the area and targets the pigment within the hair follicle, thereby destroying the follicle while minimizing the transfer of excess heat to the surrounding skin. A newly designed cooling device maximizes comfort during the procedure, and minimizes the chance of blistering or redness. Since hair grows in cycles, each treatment eliminates even more hair follicles resulting in the permanent reduction of unwanted hair.

Areas We Treat

  • Lips, chin, and other facial areas
  • Bikini line
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Other areas may be available upon request

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of laser hair removal?

Lasers are very precise and easily adjusted. Unlike electrolysis, lasers use a wide beam that can treat many hairs at once instead of one hair at a time. Consequently, large areas (e.g., legs, arms, backs, etc.) can be treated in a short amount of time, and results will last far longer than tweezing, waxing, shaving, or other temporary treatments.

How long will each treatment take?

Time for treatment depends on the areas being targeted. Facial areas (e.g., lip, chin, etc.) can be treated in 5-10 minutes, smaller body areas (e.g., underarms, bikini line, etc.) take about 15 minutes, and larger body areas (e.g., back, legs, arms, etc.) can take approximately 30 to 60 minutes.

Is it safe? Does it hurt?

Laser Hair Removal is very safe because the laser is turned on for only a fraction of a second, and the duration of each laser pulse is just long enough to destroy the hair follicle. A state of the art cooling device simultaneously cools the skin while the laser is in use, minimizing discomfort. Clients may feel a tingling or stinging sensation during treatment, but most people tolerate the procedure well. In addition, Gianna procedures are continually adjusted, based on the individual sensitivity level of each client, during the treatments.

How many treatments will I need?

Because the laser disables hairs in their active growth cycle and because other hairs enter their growth cycles at different times, an average of five treatments are recommended to destroy all of the hair follicles in a given area. However, there are a variety of factors that can influence the total number of treatments any individual may require. To ensure maximum results, Gianna Skin & Laser offers a free, customized, one-on-one consultation for any procedure. During that time, we review your client profile, discuss your goals, and answer any questions. We will then evaluate you, and will provide a customized plan designed to determine the best way for you to achieve your goals.

What can I expect to pay for treatments?

Lips and chin$99-$199
Bikini Line$199-$299
Legs$399 and up
Back$500 and up

Additional areas may be available. Individual costs can vary based on skin type and the quantity of hair to be treated.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

The laser will partially or totally eliminate a percentage of the unwanted hair per treatment. Once these hair follicles are eliminated, they are permanently destroyed. However, due to lifestyle, hormonal stimulation, and genetics, the laser may not prevent new hair follicles from being stimulated in the future.
