EpiLight™ Laser Hair Removal System
The EpiLight™ laser hair removal system is an FDA approved method of reducing the appearance of hair by using intense light. This intense light is then used to reduce the appearance of undesired hair from all areas of the body in a noninvasive way.
In comparison to waxing or shaving, which simply cuts off the visible hair, the EpiLight™ hair removal system helps reduce the appearance of unwanted hair more efficiently by the root.
How Does the EpiLight™ Work?
This laser hair removal procedure works by first applying cool gel to the body. Once that is applied, the EpiLight unit is placed on the skin where it produces a series of lights that penetrate the skin safely. The light heats up the roots of hundreds of hairs, causing them to fall out.
Patients may experience a mild stinging feeling during this part of treatment, but the pain lasts only a few seconds and is several times less painful than waxing.
Once the procedure is complete, the gel is wiped off along with the treated hair. Some hair might remain in the treated area but most fall within a week. The remaining hair is usually thin or damaged, although future sessions allow for them to be reduced significantly.
The laser hair removal procedure is safe for various parts of the body, including sensitive areas such as the upper lip, bikini line, chest, and underarms. It can also be customized to adapt to the color and texture of the hair, including ingrown hairs.
Most people see a degree of hair loss results from the EpiLight™ laser hair removal procedure in as little as 5 sessions.
In comparison to depilatory creams, waxing, or shaving, which all has to be repeated on a regular basis to help maintain the hairless look; the EpiLight™ procedure provides an opportunity to reduce the appearance of hair significantly.
Patients who are interested in the EpiLight™ laser hair removal procedure are encouraged to not consume beta-carotene which could interfere with the procedure’s effectiveness. Avoid any harsh damage to the hair root (bleaching, plucking, tweezing, waxing) two weeks before the procedure for maximum effectiveness.

The cost of the procedure starts at $99 per session. Escobedo Esthetics also offers affordable hair removal packages for any budget.
What is the length of the procedure?
