Frequently Asked Questions
What is Laser Hair Removal and How Does It Work?
How Long Does a Laser Hair Removal Appointment Take?
Treatment time varies on the size of the area being treated. Facial areas, underarms and bikini are usually completed in under ten minutes; larger areas, including the legs or chest will require more time.
What will the area look like after it is treated with the laser?
The hair follicles that were treated with laser may still look the same and the hair may appear as if it is continuing to grow. You may continue to shave the area, or you may simply leave it alone. In approximately two to three weeks you will notice less re-growth, and unshaved hairs will start to fall out.
How many treatments will be needed?
The number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, your skin type and your hair’s growth cycle. An average of 6 treatments, as hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience.
Please make an appointment for consultation to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for laser hair removal. Please do not wax, pluck or have electrolysis done for at least 4 weeks before your consultation/treatment. You may shave your hair up to three days prior to your treatment. Sun exposure, tanning or tanning creams should be avoided for at least 1 month before treatment. For upper lip treatment, please let us know if you have a history of cold sores or fever blisters.
The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. If necessary, only shave treated areas between sessions.
