About the Treatment
Our center employs highly qualified medical specialists of the first and highest qualification categories with work experience of at least 10 years.
Laser hair removal can rid you of the pain and inconvenience of shaving and waxing, which can be time-consuming. It is also a great solution for men and women to remove unwanted hair that grows in areas such as the back, shoulders, chest, belly, arms, legs, armpits, and private areas. Laser is an effective method to remove facial hair as well as body hair permanently for both men and women across a certain number of sessions.
How does it work?
Laser hair removal works by beaming a highly concentrated light directed to the hair follicles. The pigments in the follicle absorb the light, which in turn breaks down the follicle and prevents the hair from regrowing.
Our practitioners are skilled and our machines are FDA- Approved.
To each his very own Laser Hair Removal Machine.
We operate differently, and believe that every patient must have a customized experience that fits his/her concerns. For that reason, Silkor Laser & Medical Centers host FDA- approved machines that fit all skin types and hair colors. Hence why the client’s concerns are addressed in the free consultation performed prior to every treatment.

You will start seeing results after your very first session, and you will notice all through your treatment that hair in treated areas is dwindling. Eventually, you will reduce 15% to 20% of hair growth permanently each session.
