Laser Hair Removal


Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Laser Hair Removal.

Are There Any Risks Involved With Laser Hair Removal?

While laser hair removal is generally a safe procedure, there are some risks associated with treatments including skin irritation, discoloration, or scarring. It is important to speak openly about any health conditions you have or medications you are taking prior to beginning a treatment plan as these can affect the result of your laser hair removal sessions. Additionally, it is recommended that you only receive treatments from experienced and certified professionals in order to minimize potential risks associated with laser hair removal.

Can Laser Hair Removal be Used on Any Part of the Body?

Yes, laser hair removal can be used on any part of the body including facial areas such as the upper lip, chin and cheeks as well as larger areas such as legs and back. However, some lasers may not be effective on certain skin types or areas of the body; it is important to discuss your individual needs and condition with your doctor or provider before beginning any type of treatment plan.

What Should I Do After My Treatment?

After your laser hair removal session, it is important to follow your doctor or provider’s post-treatment instructions which may include avoiding direct sunlight, using sunscreen, and applying moisturizing cream to the treated area. Additionally, it is recommended that you avoid waxing or plucking in between sessions as this can interfere with the effectiveness of your laser treatments. Speak with your doctor or provider about what steps you should take after each session for the best results.

Does Laser Hair Removal Cause Scarring?

No, laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment that should not cause any scarring. It is possible, however, that laser treatments could cause minor irritation such as redness or swelling which should subside within 24 hours. Be sure to discuss any potential risks with your doctor or provider prior to beginning a laser hair removal treatment plan.

Does Laser Hair Removal Work on All Skin Types?

Yes! Laser hair removal can be used to treat all skin types, regardless of color. However, laser hair removal may not be as effective for individuals with very light or white hair since the pigment in the hairs must absorb the laser energy in order to target and destroy the follicle. That being said, there are other methods that may work better for those with very light/white hairs such as Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments.

Are There Any Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal?

Side effects associated with laser hair removal are generally minimal, but may include temporary redness, swelling and irritation in the treated area. In some cases, there may also be an increase in skin sensitivity following treatments that can last for several days. It is important to speak with your doctor or provider about any potential risks before undergoing laser hair removal treatments.

What Should I Do to Prepare for a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Before your appointment, you should avoid waxing, plucking, and electrolysis for at least four weeks prior. Additionally, it is important to protect the skin from sun exposure for at least two weeks before treatment in order to minimize the risk of any complications. For facial treatments, you should also avoid using any facial products such as retinol or alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) creams as these can increase sensitivity. Your technician will be able to provide more information during your initial consultation.

Can Laser Hair Removal Be Used for Facial Hair Removal?

Yes! In addition to removing unwanted hair from the body, laser hair removal can be used to reduce facial hair growth. Our lasers are designed to be gentle enough for use on facial areas without risking any damage to the delicate skin. That said, facial laser hair removal may require more treatments than other parts of the body due to its unique characteristics. Your technician will provide an estimate at your initial consultation and adjust it as necessary throughout the process in order to achieve optimal results.

" Is Laser Hair Removal Safe? "

Yes! Modern laser hair removal treatments are completely safe, provided that they are performed by a qualified professional such as one of our technicians. All of our lasers have been carefully calibrated to ensure maximum safety and effectiveness while minimizing discomfort and any risk of side effects. Additionally, all of our technicians receive extensive training in order to guarantee the highest level of quality care for each and every patient. If you have any additional questions or concerns about the safety and efficacy of laser hair removal, we invite you to discuss them with us during your initial consultation. We’re always happy to provide more information about the process so that you can make an informed decision.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Typically, the results of laser hair removal can last anywhere from months to years depending on individual factors such as skin type, hair color, and the area being treated. It is important to note that while laser hair removal treatments are effective at reducing unwanted body or facial hair, they do not provide a permanent solution and may require periodic touch-ups or maintenance treatments in order to maintain desired results. Speak with your doctor or provider about what to expect following a series of laser hair removal treatments.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Laser hair removal can effectively reduce hair growth but does not guarantee permanent results. After multiple treatments, most patients experience long-term reduction in the amount of unwanted hair; however, some people may require occasional touch-up treatments over time to maintain optimal results. Our technicians will discuss your personal circumstances with you at length during your initial consultation in order to help ensure that you have realistic expectations about the outcome of your treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Nee

Generally speaking, at least six treatments (ranging from 4-8 weeks apart) are needed to achieve optimal results. The exact number of treatments depends on several factors, such as hair color and texture, skin tone, the size of the treatment area, and individual physiology. Our technicians will be able to provide an estimate after assessing your condition during your initial consultation.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

The sensation of laser hair removal will vary from person to person, but most patients report that the treatment is relatively comfortable. Most patients do not require any anesthetic before or after the procedure and only experience a mild stinging sensation during the treatment. Some areas may be more sensitive than others, such as the bikini line or underarms, so numbing creams are available upon request. Our technicians are always happy to adjust the intensity of the lasers in order to minimize discomfort and ensure your safety throughout the entire process.
