How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser armpit hair removal is a non-invasive method of permanent hair removal in the underarm. Utilizing concentrated beams of light, the laser targets and destroys the underarm hair follicles, stopping further regrowth. 

This simple treatment is completed in under an hour and provides long lasting results with minimal potential discomfort to clients. After treatment, clients can resume their regular activities without complication.

What to Expect From Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a safe and clinically proven technique for achieving permanent hair removal in underarms. During a session, laser energy targets the melanin in the hair follicles, disrupting their ability to grow. Because armpit laser technology can precisely target small areas of the skin, it is especially beneficial for treating difficult or sensitive areas. 

Before receiving laser hair removal, it is important to meet with a qualified technician to develop an appropriate treatment plan. Through a series of treatments and follow-up maintenance appointments, clients can expect smoother skin without having to shave or wax again. With its convenience and effectiveness, underarm laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to more traditional methods of hair removal.

What is Venus Viva Technology?

Venus Viva technology is a revolution in both safety and effectiveness for laser hair removal in armpits. It utilizes a combination of NanoFractional Radio Frequency Technology (RF) and SmartScan technology to provide a more efficient, adjustable, and powerful treatment option that can target all skin types.

How Does Venus Viva Work?

A process of small columns of heat is delivered to the treatment area, destroying the hair follicle and stimulating new collagen growth production which provides skin tightening benefits beyond just permanent hair removal. 

Venus Viva enables technicians to control energy levels accurately and customize treatments for each individual client. This makes Venus Viva a safe and effective means of obtaining smooth, soft skin without unpleasant side effects such as excessive inflammation or burns.]

Venus Viva can be used in multiple treatment areas beyond underarm laser hair removal including bikini laser hair removal, leg laser hair removal, and facial laser hair removal.
