Laser Hair Removal

What to Expect

Laser hair removal uses non-invasive light technology to safely eliminate unwanted body hair, including facial laser hair removal. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged, making it so they cannot re-grow. The technology used for laser hair removal allows for treatments of all different areas, hair colors, skin types, and skin tones.

Common Questions

WILL I NEVER HAVE TO SHAVE AGAIN?

The average person can expect 70-90% permanent reduction from laser hair removal treatments. This varies from person to person and between body areas. At your initial consultation we will give you an accurate idea of what you can expect.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

The average number of treatments needed to achieve 70-90% permanent hair removal is about 8-12. This number varies from person to person and among body parts. Our membership programs are structured specifically so that you can receive all of the treatments you need to reach your full result, plus any touch-ups necessary to catch those stray hairs.

WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT SO LONG BETWEEN TREATMENTS?

Hair follicles transition through active and dormant stages and only about 30-50% of your hair is actively growing at any given time. With each treatment, we will cover the entire skin surface, but only those follicles that are “active” will be impacted. When a follicle is dormant, the laser light cannot be absorbed, and the follicle is left undamaged. We customize your treatment plan to ensure that we are matching your hair growth cycles and ensuring the best results possible for you.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

We can treat all skin colors and hair types. Laser hair removal is less effective on clients with red, blonde or grey hair, so we recommend that you come in for a consultation so that we can give you an accurate idea of what results you can expect.

HOW LONG DOES EACH TREATMENT TAKE?

Each body area can be completed in 20 minutes or less. Your appointment time will depend on how many areas we are treating that day. Because there is no down time with laser hair removal, you can easily get your treatment on your lunch break and return to work immediately. We take care to make sure that we give you a thorough treatment, and that you get in and out of our clinics as efficiently as possible so you can get back to your busy schedule.

IS HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?

The simple answer is “Yes”. Laser hair removal is the #1 non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed each year, with the lowest risk of adverse reaction. When performed by trained practitioners, side effects from laser hair removal are very uncommon.

IS HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?

Electrolysis is the only FDA-approved method for completely permanent hair removal. Laser hair removal is a semi-permanent procedure that will not get rid of hair forever, but it will minimize hair growth and produce finer hair that is harder to detect. This means you’ll be able to stop shaving your legs, armpits, bikini line, or wherever else you decide to have the treatment done.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?

Alternative short-term treatments like waxing are usually much more painful than laser hair removal. Experiences differ, but most people find it to be a very tolerable procedure that feels similar to tiny pinpricks. The sensation should lessen with each laser hair removal treatment. The technician can apply a topical anesthetic cream to help those who are particularly sensitive.

HOW LONG DOES HAIR REMOVAL LAST?

Laser hair removal can be permanent if the hair follicle is completely destroyed. But if the hair follicle is just damaged rather than destroyed, the hair will eventually grow back. After undergoing six to eight laser hair removal treatments, a person should be able to enjoy minimal hair regrowth for up to one year. If regrowth happens sometime between six to twelve months, touch-up treatments can be scheduled to manage the hair.

ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS TO LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that most people find relatively painless. The hair removal process should not hurt, if done correctly. However, there are some minor side effects that could arise after hair removal, including redness, crusting of the skin, or slight changes in skin color on the treated area. All side effects are temporary and should not bring too much discomfort. If you have a qualified, experienced technician, side effects should be minimal.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE FOR THE FACE?

Laser hair removal is perfectly safe for those looking to treat unwanted facial hair. Many men and women utilize laser hair removal to get rid of hair on the upper lip, eyebrows, chin, or sideburns. This is a safe and convenient way to avoid the razor bumps and irritation that may come with shaving facial hair.

HOW MUCH DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL COST?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the cost of laser hair removal varies depending on location, experience of the technician, and the area of the body being treated. This is an investment well worth the time and money saved on daily shaving and other hair removal procedures. Request a free consultation and start your journey to smooth skin.
