It’s no secret that many people have unwanted hair on their bodies. Many individuals will use various methods to tackle this bothersome problem, such as shaving, waxing, and even plucking. Of course, those methods are only temporary and sometimes painful.

The ideal solution to eradicate unwanted hair is with a laser hair removal treatment. As the name suggests, the process involves using a laser to damage and effectively destroy hair follicles.

Dr. Frank L. Stile, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, and his clinical team at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, offer laser hair removal. It’s a treatment that is ideal for patients who want a long-term solution to excessive hair growth.

Laser hair removal is a revolutionary way to eradicate unwanted hair and provide a long-term solution to an age-old problem. It’s a highly effective method that can remove hair from both the face and other areas of the body.

The process works by using a specific laser called Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet). Dr. Stile uses a handheld laser device that emits pulses of concentrated high-energy light, which generates heat to damage hair follicles.

Once the laser damages those follicles, the hairs in them will fall out. Patients new to the treatment will have obvious concerns about a laser getting used on their bodies. However, the process is entirely safe and non-invasive.


The trouble with conventional methods of hair removal is they don’t offer long-term results. Shaving, waxing, and plucking require regular top-up treatments to maintain a hairless appearance in desired areas of the face and body.

Laser hair removal offers a more permanent solution to the problem. The process itself can take 30 to 90 minutes, depending on your specific requirements.

You’ll typically need two to six treatments, spaced around four to six weeks apart, to achieve optimal, long-lasting results. This is because all hairs grow at different rates, and so multiple sessions will ensure all unwanted hair gets removed.

An advantage of the laser we use at Stile Aesthetics is that it offers excellent results for patients with light or dark skin complexions. Moreover, our laser hair removal solution ensures long-term outcomes compared with alternative laser hair removal treatments.


You might be a candidate for laser hair removal if you’ve got bothersome unwanted hair growing on your face or other parts of your body, such as on your underarms, legs, chest, and back.

Moreover, you’d also be a good candidate if you’ve got realistic expectations about the laser hair removal process and your hair reduction goals.

Laser hair removal is suitable for people with fair and dark skin complexions. It should be avoided by candidates that are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have certain conditions such as epilepsy.
