What areas can laser hair removal treat?
Laser hair removal can remove hair from faces, backs, chests, arms, underarms, bikini, legs and more.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Different lasers can effectively treat different skin types. Our laser can be used on a wide range of skin types from very light to very dark skin. During your consultation we will determine the best course of treatment for you based on a variety of factors such as hair color and hair type.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, we recommend a series of six treatment sessions to provide the best aesthetic outcome. Laser hair removal technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth, so several treatments are needed to affect all of the unwanted hair.
Can I shave in between laser hair removal sessions?
Yes. In fact, the area needs to be freshly shaved before your treatment session. You may shave the area the day before the treatment or the day of the treatment before coming in for your session. But you should not wax or pluck the hair during the course of your laser sessions.
How far apart are treatment sessions?
It depends on which area is being treated. In general, face, underarms, arms, and bikini are approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Back, chest, and legs are approximately 8-10 weeks apart. During your consultation your treatment course will be discussed.
What will laser hair removal feel like?
Most people feel only a slight momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure followed by a slight heating of the skin. This typically goes away after the
treatment but cooling methods can be used immediately after treatment to help with this sensation.
How quickly will I recover?
Typically, you can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor redness and/or swelling immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts 2-24 hours. Ask your provider to discuss other possible side effects and the necessary post- treatment care with you."
