Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is the best way to remove unwanted hair. The advanced technology of the Coolite Pro XL, CynoSure Vecuts, Aerolase LightPod Neo, and Cutera xeo laser systems all incorporate cutting-edge engineering to safely reduce hair, substantially diminishing the side effects of various skin conditions associated with ingrown hair and more.
We are Maine’s premier laser hair removal center. We are the only practice in the state to offer muliple revolutionary adanced lasers, and we’re in the heart of Portland, Maine!
How does the Diode laser work?
The Diode Laser system uses a “Jet Smooth” approach. The high repetition rate with short pulses delivers energy deeper into the dermis. This method achieves a higher percentage of power to promote heat build-up with virtually no discomfort.
How many treatments will I need before I see a difference?
The great thing about our Diode Lasers is they produces better results than other types of lasers. It’s not uncommon to see drastic results after one treatment. Our clinic has seen a dramatic impact on our hair removal division since we’ve incorporated the Diode Laser as our primary laser of choice for hair removal.
Why choose 810nm wavelength over other laser systems?
In recent years the 810nm Diode laser has become the gold standard for laser hair removal. The Diode Laser is safe to use on all skin types as well as recently tanned skin! It’s that safe to use. Additionally, the 810nm wavelength is absorbed by melanin in the hair follicle.
This process reduces the energy absorption by water and hemoglobin, making it the safest in relation to surrounding tissue within the dermis and epidermis.
Do laser hair removal treatments cost more because you're using newer technology?
The answer is no! Our new system is so efficient to operate that we have decided to pass along the savings to our customers. Pricing starts at just $75 for a small area!
What factors determine how well the removal process will proceed?
Factors such as hair density, color, location, and hormones will influence the effectiveness of Diode laser hair removal. One of the advantages of our laser is there are adjustable energy settings that enable the practitioner to adjust the parameters to adequately treat the hair with better hair reduction per session.

Who should you choose Maine Laser Clinic over others?

What kind of laser do you use for people of color?
Maine Laser Clinic uses two state-of-the-art Nd:YAG lasers, employing an innovative MicroPulse-1064 technology to achieve new levels of efficacy and gentle treatment of laser hair reduction for people of color.
How does the 1064nm laser remove hair?
Our lasers produce high power laser-pulses with shorter pulse durations, which are less than the Thermal Relaxation Time skin tissue surrounding the follicle. As a result, the laser-generated heat is effectively sealed within the follicle as it doesn’t have time to conduct outward to the surrounding skin.
What does that mean?
This results in a substantial increase in treatment efficacy on fair-skin and lighter hairs compared to other Nd:YAG 1064nm lasers, or even compared to older diode and Alexandrite lasers.
What is a benefit of using an nd:YAG laser for laser hair removal?
Another great benefit our laser is the technology used in the device provides a much higher level of safety for laser hair removal. Since the laser energy passes through the skin 50 to 500 times faster, the energy produces deosn’t overheat the epidermal melanin.
Are there any side effects associated with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is the safest and easiest way to remove unwanted hair. Our lasers have been used in thousands of procedures, and we know how to effectively remove hair while minimizing pain. Slight erythem or swelling is common.
Does laser hair removal work on all hair color?
Laser Hair Removal targets melanin in the hair follicle and surrounding tissue. The laser hair removal process damages hair cells, disrupting their production and eventually leading to the loss of hair. Blond, gray and white hair lacks the necessary pigment to absorb laser energy, therefore rendering laser hair removal useless for these hair colors.
Why is hair color so important?
There are many factors that determine how well laser hair removal works. Hair color is the single most important factor regarding the hair removal process.
