Who Is a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

What to Expect with Laser Hair Removal
If you are looking for a long-term hair removal alternative to shaving, waxing, and plucking, you're probably a great candidate for laser hair removal. On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, your technician will use a laser device to target and destroy the hair follicles in the selected areas, which prevents them from growing again. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to attain optimal results. After your treatment, you will be able to go back to your normal activities, but you should avoid sun exposure for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. The treated areas of your skin may look like it has a slight sunburn, but soothing creams or ice packs can be used to minimize any discomfort.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How much does laser hair removal cost?
A laser hair removal treatment varies in cost based on the size and number of areas being treated, in addition to how many sessions are needed to attain optimal results. To help you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair removal, consider the energy and time you currently spend on waxing, shaving, or other temporary hair removal methods. This is why laser hair removal is generally less expensive overall and will save you time and energy in the long run. Our team will create a personalized plan for you with the number of sessions you need and costs.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces lasting improvements. While patients can enjoy the benefits of the treatment for a long time, laser hair removal is technically semi-permanent since some hair may continue growing. Regardless, patients find most of their hair will be gone after their treatment plan is finished, and if a few hairs pop up, it is easier to manage. Additional laser hair removal sessions may also be needed to take care of any stragglers or new growth.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Your hair growth occurs in phases. When some follicles are in a live growing phase, others are dormant. Since every follicle is in various stages, multiple treatment sessions are usually suggested to target each hair follicle when it is growing. Spreading out your treatments over several weeks — so you get the smoothest, most effective result.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Your laser hair removal session may cause mild discomfort, but it isn't a painful procedure. Patients should feel a small snap as the laser targets and removes the hair follicle. We can apply a local anesthetic on your skin before the start of your treatment session. Patients who have been getting waxed report that laser hair removal feels more comfortable compared to a normal waxing session.
