The future of permanent hair removal is laser hair removal for most hairs and the extra little hairs using electrolysis.

LaserPlus Electrolysis Centers was founded by Patricia Bardavid, a Registered Nurse, who has been in the hair removal profession for 20 years. Laser Plus strives for excellence with keeping the integrity of the skin our number 1 priority. We believe mixing laser and electrolysis will give you the “permanent” solution of hair removal. All laser treatments are done by qualified Registered Nurses. In an effort to meet the needs of our ever-growing clientele, we have added to our offices permanent makeup, microdermabrasion, and sunless airbrush tanning.

Laser hair removal is the new way to remove hair because it works! Imagine, in just 20 seconds, a Laser Plus Registered Nurse could clear all of the hair above your lip, comfortable and easily. Laser works best on dark, coarse hairs and large body areas: such as, buttocks, arms, underarms, lips, chin, hands, and face. Laser does 50 hairs to 1 hair of electrolysis!

Electrolysis works best on small areas such as the eyebrows and breast, white and fine, light blonde and red hairs that laser cannot do. Electrolysis is the only proven permanent method of hair removal. It’s a fact; tweezing, waxing, and shaving only make your hair problems worse. But electrolysis removes each hair at the root, which prevents any further re-growth from occurring.

Permanent Makeup has been performed at Laser Plus for over four years. Patricia Bardavid, a Registered Nurse, Certified Professional Electrologist, and owner of Laser Plus, has been applying permanent makeup to our clients at sites such as: the eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip-liner. The Soft Tap method is used and has the patient in mind with a very gentle procedure and with the choice of a variety of subtle color blends.

Microdermabrasion mechanically removes layers of epidermal skin to produce immediate smoothing results. It is a non-surgical treatment to resurface your skin. It works great on reducing fine lines, uneven skin-tones, sun damage, acne scars, and raised scars. Beverly Latham, a licensed and certified Medical Aesthetician, performs our skin care procedures. She has worked for a plastic surgeon providing pre and post surgery skin care advice designed to speed healing time and improve results.

Don’t you hate it when your tan fades? Sunless airbrush tanning is the new way to get that perfect looking tan in just minutes. Our expert tanners will spray an even mist of the DHA+ tanning solution on your body and within 12 hours you will have the glow of a weekend beach trip. The tan will last 7-10 days and the procedure only takes about 5 minutes.
