Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief. Until now, the only long-lasting hair removal solution has been by electrolysis – which can be time-consuming and is usually limited to small areas, because each hair is treated individually.
Astoria Laser Clinic’s Laser hair removal system works on a large number of hair follicles at once, resulting in quicker results. And laser treatment offers more permanent results than traditional techniques such as shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams, which are all temporary methods that must be repeated on a frequent basis.
Laser hair removal is non-invasive, and safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Facial and bikini area sessions are usually completed in under 30 minutes; legs and larger areas longer.
As a general rule, several treatments will be required and you can expect to see a 50% reduction in hair growth after just one treatment. If you hate shaving, or are tired of putting up with painful waxing, tweezing or electrolysis, laser hair removal may be a great solution for you.
Will laser hair removal work for me?
The best results have been achieved on darker, coarse hair, but other factors may influence the treatment process, and are generally best evaluated and discussed in person. We offer a complimentary consultation. Depending on the amount of hair and area treated, the procedure varies from patient to patient.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. In addition, your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type.
What precautions should be taken before and after treatment?
You MUST stop plucking, bleaching, or waxing hair for several weeks for laser to be optimally effective.
How many treatments will I need?
Hair grows in cycles. The laser is only effective on hair in its actively growing cycle. At any one time there will only be certain hairs in that growing phase. This means that consistent treatments at appropriate intervals are absolutely necessary for the best possible results. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin, hair coloring, coarseness of the hair and density per treated area. The laser hair removal system causes permanent reduction in the number of hairs growing in an area. Because hair grows in three phases, and each hair goes through these stages independently, it is almost impossible for one laser treatment to permanently reduce all hair in a given area. While individual results may vary, patients typically find they get up to 20% reduction of hair per treatment so it takes 6 or more treatments to get the desired results.

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Astoria Laser Clinic!! I have been going to see Olga (who is amazing) for ~5 months. I have done everything from CoolSculpting to Cool Tone to Vanquish to Venus to Laser Hair Removal and all of it has been fantastic.
Everyone is knowledgeable, professional and efficient. The treatments are state of the art, and I feel like those I had made a visible difference. All of the staff members are lovely, and really know the ins and outs of treatments. The establishment is spotless and all COVID precautions are enforced.

Do yourself a favor and don’t go anywhere else for your spa needs. All staff are knowledgeable and courteous. It’s hard to find a friendly place that also knows the business
Very Pleased with my cooltone results. I met with Olga who was very knowledgeable and offered good insight on why and how this treatment would work and aid my goal in defining certain muscle groups. With Olga's advice and game plan I was able to obtain and meet my goal a bit early.
Astoria is a great medspa. It’s extremely clean, professional, and everyone makes you feel comfortable. Olga is absolutely incredible. She is extremely knowledgeable and really cares about her clients. She not only wants you to look good, but feel good. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Absolutely love the atmosphere and service that Ivana and Louisa have given me. Ivana is very careful and she truly cares and follows up after all treatments. Years of sun damage and rosacea problems are slowly being erased, and by face looks amazing! Their facilities are extremely neat and clean, you won't be disappointed!
