You probably already knew this, but lasers, particularly ones used for medical purposes, are still relatively new and take a lot of maintenance.

Your time, convenience, self esteem, and safety are, and should always be, top priority in laser hair removal. That’s why it’s so important to make sure the laser removing your hair is the best and working at its optimum level.

The Alexandrite Laser is one of the best lasers available for laser hair removal, and what we use at TLC. However, this quality of laser increases the cost of laser hair removal.

Although many people get laser hair removal for reasons other than cosmetic ones, you cannot subsidize your laser hair removal with health insurance.

Shaving and waxing add up fast, but laser hair removal is a cost-effective investment in yourself.
