Some of the most popular areas treated are the legs, bikini area, underarms, face, back, and chest.

You’ll wear protective goggles during your session, and, depending on your preference, a numbing cream may be applied to the target area.

After your appointment, you’re able to return to your daily activities immediately with no downtime. If your skin is particularly sensitive, you can apply a cold compress to soothe the treated area.
