Why Chose Karen for laser hair removal? There are many reasons. The first one is cost Karen’s prices are so much lower for comparable laser businesses. Plus, many of them are not really comparable because they don’t have a 16 year experienced, advanced trained National Board Certified Laser Hair Removal Expert performing the work using countless different lasers through the years. Karen personally prices per visit after assessing what is needed. Eveyone is so different in color, size, need, etc. Karen offers the best price possible.

Another great reason you are only charged for the treatment that you receive. There is no contracts, large costs, no binding contracts that give you zero but, locking you into very costly bills. So you end up after 8 treatments still with hair and then they will let you receive what they call half price laser hair removal treatments to continue. That is not what Karen calls treating her clients correctly.

. In many of these laser hair removal businesses if you were under treated the hair has been turned into hair that a laser can longer destroy and it is only a waxing type treatment you are receiving. The laser heats up the hair just enough for it to purge out and give you temporary clearance. The follicle only has very little melanin left in it, not enough to kill follicle. How you know is you keep seeing the same results treatment after treatment.

No matter if they offer half price discontinue treatment you are wasting your money

Now it is time to see a National Board Certified Electrologist because that is the only way to 100% permanently finish the job.

In many of these laser hair removal businesses if you were under-treated from the beginning because you came in with a suntan and other reasons.

The laser business didn’t want that money going out the door or the business was just keeping their liability very low (treat everyone with low settings) and to keep you coming back. When you have minimum wage staff with a high turn-over they do what is easiest.

When you’re a chain not even usually involved with the business other than the money it is just a profit machine  ensuring low risk because with the signed contract they lose nothing.

. When you are a laser hair removal chain it is all about profit and how much training do you think they provide for their minimum wage staff? How aggressive do you think they want to cure you of your hair problem? Check Karen’s reviews and see what people say about her laser hair removal treatments.

Another concern to be aware about is pulse light laser hair removal. It is called a poor man’s laser. It is not a true laser and the hand pieces are only good for so many shots. Some of the older devices the higher the pulse count the weaker the power delivery. You don’t receive a great treatment in many cases.

Very important to know what laser is being used. Those are most likely used for the cheap on-line deals.

Like most important things in life you get what you pay for.

You can find affordable but, super cheap laser hair removal something got to give is what Karen truly believes

. Common situations for those cheap group deals. How do you think the laser hair removal business can try to recover. When you think you can get 4 or 5 laser treatment for $150 or $200. The laser business ends up with around 80 plus % less so how is a laser hair removal business going to stay in business? What do you think you are really getting? Sadly too many times Karen has seen people come in with tons of wispy hair from those situations. Forever growing long with a volume hair, just each hair shaft not as thick.

Karen very highly doubts that you would receive the results Karen is providing. Karen hears it all the time how after only a few treatments the hair loss is so great they are amazed.

A great National Board Certified Laser Hair Removal Expert, licensed, insured many years in business offering a great service with integrity would never do.

A great laser hair removal provider offers a great service and great results from the first treatment on.. Can’t cut the quality or honesty of the service. Karen provides the best laser hair removal treatment that she possibly can period…


People know that to ensure quality there are costs. They can be affordable cost but, there can’t be so low that you go in the hole to keep your doors open. Or only afford minimin wage staff that has just the most basic cheapest training. These type of laser hair removal business covers themselves, so.the business keeps their liability very low (treat everyone with low settings) and charge seriously up front signing away any kind of responsibility.

Those deals a great provider a great business offering a great service would never do.. People know that to ensure quality there are costs. They can be affordable but, there can’t be so low that you go in the hole to keep your doors open.

Or the staff that has just the most basic training with a high turnover. The laser hair removal business covers themselves, so.the business keeps their liability very low (treat everyone with low settings) and to keep you on a contract. Not results

…Time to stop, think and maybe call Karen Marlise a call.

A National Board Certified Clinical and Medical Electrologist.since 1993 and National Board Certified Laser Hair Removal Expert since 2001.

Karen encourages people to back out of the sun first using total block and waiting until their skin is as light as they can achieve it before beginning. So they save money and they receive better results. It is an investment into yourself and worth waiting sometimes before starting off without the very best beginning.

Don’t start laser hair removal if you have had recent sun exposure. Back out of the sun and get as light as possible first. You will be glad you did. I provide waterproof Total Block even with mineral makeup total block so you can do life normally without worry.

I have known many people that have done many treatments never seeing any more reduction… Big waste of time and money.

After the normal amount of treatments have been applied around the sixth depending on different factors Karen wants to see the hair grown out to access all the hair that if left and see if the laser can do any more progress. Karen consults with her clients to keep her updated on progress after each treatment.

Karen’s goal is to give the very best to her clients at the most affordable price. She wants to make sure clients can stop or continue by their choosing not locked into a money contract.

There are too many variables with laser hair removal because there are so many variables with people’s hair problems like Polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS which Karen has dealt with for years or hirsutism is another. Or just plain thyroid problems, obesity, genetics Karen has many years experience with all of them and in this business experience is the most important thing to know how to help someone.

Karen will only provide the best laser hair removal treatment she possibly can period.

 How Does Laser Hair Removal Work

Very Important Laser Hair Removal Information


Laser hair removal treatments are a permanent hair reduction solution for removing most unwanted hair. At best laser can only achieve around 75% is what all the data tells you. But, remember the thin wispy hair or hair with not enough melanin in the hair follicle makes it impossible to heat up the follicle enough to kill all the germinative cells the hair might return. That is why it is so important to have contrast (light skin, dark hair). So enough energy can be applied without competing with the skin color. The Darker the skin type more challenging it is to kill the hair.

That where a highly skilled and trained laser hair removal expert comes into play. Karen Marlise has had many advanced classes in using lasers and know how to get the most out of a laser.

 Karen also offers electrology treatments so you can rest assured you can achieve 100% permanent hair removal.  If you’re tired of shaving, waxing or plucking body hair only to have it return days later, you may be interested in laser hair removal. Can you image how much time you spend and money on waxing, shaving, shaving cremes and razors to just name a few discomforts?

Plucking and waxing hair that is connected to your hormones usually increases the amount of hair and the size of the hair. Every time you pluck a hair you are ripping out skin because the follicle is attached. Bloods rushes to the injury in many cases generating more germinative cells and stronger hair. It usually worsens the problem in time. Then comes ingrown hair and scars. It can become a hair disorder for some people. Until shaving, plucking and waxing are not any relief any longer. There is a great way out and that is laser hair removal or

It usually worsens the problem in time. Then comes ingrown hair and scars. It can become a hair disorder for some people. Until shaving, plucking and waxing are not any relief any longer. There is a great way out and that is laser hair removal or electrology .

No matter what skin type you have, newer lasers can safely and effectively remove unwanted hair from your face and body. Karen Marlise is a master electrologist as well so you can rest assured the right permanent hair removal solution when you come into Karen’s office. Karen offers what will serve you the best and explains exactly why.  One of the reasons could be your hair is too light, blond, gray, recent sun exposure or other contraindications.

Laser hair removal systems use laser light, an intense pulsating beam of light, to remove unwanted hair. Whether it’s on your face, arms, legs or other areas, laser hair removal may be an option if you seek long-term results. With multiple treatments, long-term hair removal is possible! Common treatment locations include the bikini line, legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, nose, back, neck, shoulders, buttocks, and genitals.

“Hair color and skin type are the key factors that influence the treatment success.”

“One of the most important factors for ideal laser hair removal treatment is contrast. Light skin and dark hair equals the very best laser hair removal treatment”

Are You a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal


Laser Hair Removal - LegsLasers are most successful on people with dark hair (brown or black) and light skin. However, it can also be used on people with darker skin types if using the correct laser by a trained laser professional.

  • Am I a candidate For Laser Hair Removal?
  • Can I Have Laser Hair Removal Treatments?

Laser Hair Removal, when first introduced in the late 1990’s, was limited to light skinned individuals with dark hair. Today this has all changed. The advent of the new YAG Laser System has afforded excellent results for individuals with dark skin and dark hair. Now Indian, African American and very dark complexioned skin types can receive laser hair removal. Permanent Laser Hair Removal can be achieved by precisely following each treatment protocol recommended by your Trained Laser Hair Removal Professional. A rule of thumb is the darker the skin is more laser hair removal treatments will most likely be needed.

Laser Hair Removal for Light Skin Types


candela-gentlelase-plus-380x285Aesthetics by Karen Marlise uses the Candela GentleLASE™ Laser. If you are looking for a safe, effective aesthetic laser treatment, the Candela GentleLASE™ is the way to go. The GentleLASE™ Laser System can be used to treat hair removal on light skinned people as well as other aesthetic laser treatments. They include Skin Rejuvenation, Facial & Leg Vein Treatments, Fine Line and Wrinkle Reduction, Skin Tightening, Vascular Lesion Treatments, and Hemagiomas, (more commonly known as birthmarks). Discolored skin pigmentation caused by acne, aging, sun spots, freckles, melasma, and more can be treated using the GentleLASE™ Laser System. Lighter skin along with darker hair color adds to the success of laser hair removal treatments.

Laser Hair Removal for Darker Skin Types


lyra-laserscope-400x600The FDA recently approved a new long pulse ND: YAG laser. The ND Yag laser gives people with dark skin and dark hair better options with laser hair removal than ever before. This is the laser I personally use for my clients with dark skin and hair. Before the approval of this laser, those with darker skin types had a greater chance of pigment discoloration. People who dark skin and are considering laser hair removal should also know that there is a very good chance that it will take more treatments for the hair removal to become permanent. This is because there is a different kind of laser being used, one that is not as concentrated and focused on the skin. This is to keep you safe from burns or skin discoloration. Find a specialist that is professional trained and educated on using The YAG Laser to remove unwanted hair on dark skin and what precautions they will have to take to successfully treat you safely.

Its very important that you have not had sun on your neck before coming in for treatments, if you do use sun daily use a total sun block for 3 weeks before coming in to start treatment. Make sure to continue using it until the treatments have finished.
