Because Equipment Matters

It Really Does Make a Difference

More Effective, Better Results

Our best-in-class lasers are Class 4 medical devices that require a medical protocol. We treat our patients with LightSheer DESIRE Lasers from Lumenis, Cynosure (Palomar) IPL, and Lutronic’s Dual-pulsed Q-switched Nd: YAG featuring Spectra Peel.

Level of Service

20+ Years Experience

We Have Seen it All

Essentially Bare has been using lasers since 1999. Our service offering has continued to expand, but our mission remains the same: To treat each person individually, to administer treatments as effectively as possible within the protocol guidelines for each procedure.

Customized Treatments

Because Everyone is Different

No Big Plans or Contracts

Skin health & hair removal recommendations are based on individual conditions, desired outcome and efficiency. We do not require big pre-paid contracts for laser hair removal. For skin services, we often recommend a combination of technologies and services to yield the best results.
