Laser Hair Removal in Boston, MA

If you’re tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing unwanted hair, laser hair removal at Neem Medical Spa, located in Somerville and Winchester and serving the Greater Boston area, is for you. Our Quanta machine works on all skin types to remove hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line and eyebrows. With each treatment, there is a 20% reduction of hair growth, with permanent hair loss after six to eight treatments.

Laser hair removal utilizes beams of highly concentrated light designed to selectively penetrate the targeted hair follicle and destroy the hair. The heat of the laser damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.

Not only is our laser hair removal treatment effective, but we also make it as painless as possible. During each session, we use The Zimmer Cooler, an integrated cooling system that maximizes patient comfort. The system won the Editor’s Choice Award for Best Standalone Epidermal Cooling Device from Aesthetic Trends and Technologies.

Am I a Good Candidate For Laser Hair Removal?

Clients with all skin types are good candidates for laser hair removal. However, the most effective treatments work on brown or black hair. There should be visible pigment in the hair follicle for the laser to target the melanin so it cannot target blonde or red hair.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments are Needed to See Results?

Depending on the density of the hair, clients will need six to eight treatments every four to eight weeks for permanent hair removal. We might be able to determine how many your treatments you’ll likely need once we evaluate you.

What is The Cost of Laser Hair Removal in Boston?

The cost for laser hair removal is dependent on the size of the treated area, number of treatments, thickness of hair, and other factors. The cost is determined during the consultation. Neem Medical Spa accepts cash, bank checks, and all major credit cards including Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, and Discover®, as well as financing via CareCredit®.

Are There Any Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal?

There are no side effects from laser hair removal. Some clients may experience redness or inflamed hair follicles after treatments, but that is to be expected and will fade within a few hours.

Is There Any Downtime or Pain Involved in Laser Hair Removal?

There is no downtime involved with laser hair removal, but the area being treated must not be exposed to direct sunlight during the course of your treatments.

How Should I Prepare for a Laser Hair Removal Session?

Over the course of your laser hair removal sessions, do not wax or tweeze the area that being treatment with the laser. Also, protect the target area from direct sunlight two to three weeks prior to the treatment. Shave the target area to remove the surface hair before the treatment, and cleanse the skin to fully remove any topical anesthetics, creams, makeup products, and tanning products. Contact our office for any laser hair removal questions or concerns.

What Should I Do After a Laser Hair Removal Session?

It is important to wear sunscreen over the course of treatment to avoid hyperpigmentation.
