Laser Hair Removal
Conveniently Located to Serve Bergen County and all of North Jersey
Laser hair removal in New Jersey offers long-lasting results without the constant upkeep that comes along with other hair-removal approaches. Because of this, many patients prefer it to frustrating and painful options like waxing, shaving, plucking, and electrolysis.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
During laser hair removal, concentrated pulses of light are aimed at the targeted area. The energy is absorbed by pigments in the hair, and the heat damages the hair follicle. This ensures that no regrowth will take place.
Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair from almost any part of the body, including the legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, back, abdomen, chest, upper lip, and chin. It leaves behind smooth hairless skin.
Hair Removal with Primelase
We utilize the Primelase laser from Cocoon Medical for our laser hair removal treatments. The fastest and most powerful device on the market, Primelase uses diode laser technology to target hair follicles and inhibit them with thermal energy.
Primelase uses three varying wavelengths of light to target different hair follicles. This makes it extremely well-suited to every patient and their unique follicle structure. It can be safely used on all skin types and even works on tanned skin.
The process is extremely quick, even for large areas such as the legs and the back. With its immense power and results, the device has become a favorite among professionals and patients alike.
Preparing for Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment
During your consultation, Dr. Aanand Geria will examine your skin. This is done to identify your skin type so that the device parameters can be set accordingly. Make sure to tell Dr. Geria about any tattoos or skin spots.
Follow these preparation directions:
- Avoid sun exposure three days before the session.
- Shave the body areas where the procedure will be performed.
- Do not wax or pluck hair from the roots before your laser hair removal appointment.
The target area is covered with ultrasound gel so that the device can glide smoothly over the skin. The laser energy is then directed at the targeted region. Primelase is famous for being a pain-free procedure, and the most discomfort patients feel is usually related to the cooling effect of the device or the thermal interaction with the tissues.

Laser Hair Removal Aftercare
There is no downtime or recovery time associated with Primelase laser hair removal, but patients are advised to follow aftercare instructions diligently. This includes avoiding use of tanning lotions and avoiding exposure to excessive heat with warm showers. Patients are also advised to stay out of the sun for a few weeks after the treatment.

After a few sessions, you will notice that the targeted hair does not grow back and that the quality of your skin has also improved. The number of treatment sessions varies from person to person. This is in part because hair must be treated during its growth phase in order for laser hair removal to be effective.
Laser Hair Removal Cost
The price of laser hair removal treatment is dependent on many factors. Cost is impacted by the number of treatment regions, the size of the targeted areas, and the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve the patient’s desired results.
