Laser Hair Removal
Our laser is extremely effective, virtually painless, and we guarantee great results. We offer much more than just hair removal with our laser so call today to see what we can do for you.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin. For hair removal, multiple treatments are required, as the process is most effective when the hair follicle is in its active growth phase. Many factors impact the efficacy of individual laser treatments, including the severity of the condition being treated.
Is it permanent?
The effectiveness of laser hair removal depends on the characteristics of the individual. Skin type, hair type and pigment are all factors that can determine the outcome for a person. Our guests come to us with a wide array of skin types, hair types and hair problems, but the commonality is their desire for hair removal. Based on these individual factors, it is our job to determine the best choice of laser and best treatment plan that will produce the most desirable results.
Is it painful?
Most of those who have tried other lasers report that our laser is much gentler and more pleasant. You should feel just a mild heat sensation on the skin. A slight redness of the skin, if it occurs at all, will typically fade within a few hours.
What is the cost?
There are many factors that influence the cost. The cost of removing hair with a laser can also be dependent upon the number of treatments that we believe will be needed. Generally, laser hair removal costs less overall than the alternative electrolysis, repeated waxing or even razor blades added up over a lifetime. Most people spend over 52 hours a year just shaving!
What preparations should I make?
Patients scheduled for hair removal should avoid plucking, electrolysis or hair waxing for six weeks prior to treatment. If you have had a history of herpes simplex virus and are scheduled for facial hair treatment, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. Also, any hair should be completely removed by shaving, and your skin should be thoroughly cleansed and dried, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or skin-tanning products before laser treatment.
Are these treatments covered by insurance?
Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures. Consult your insurance carrier for conclusive information.
Are there side effects?
Your risks are minimal. Side effects may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (a laser bruise) in the treated area—but these usually do not last more than a few days. Permanent side effects are rare. Be sure to discuss potential side effects with your practitioner.
Can the laser treat sensitive areas?
Absolutely! In addition to the lasers gentle energy pulse, the hand piece doesn't contact the skin and there are no gels or sprays, aspects of other lasers that are messy and unsanitary. Private areas of the body, or areas difficult to access such as unwanted hair in ears and nostrils, can be treated!
