What is laser hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the process of using the appropriate wavelength laser (755nm or 1064nm) to target the pigment in the follicle, or the blood supply to the follicle, to stop the growth of hair.
How many treatments will I need?
You will need a minimum of 6 treatments to yield the best results for reduction. Frequency of
treatment will vary based on the area being treated. Face, underarms and bikini/groin areas can
be treated every 4-6 weeks. Back and chest can be treated every 6-8 weeks. Arms and legs can
be treated every 8-10 weeks. Best results are seen by staying on this schedule due to the three
stages of hair growth-Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. We need the hairs in the Anagen phase to
be lasered at least twice in order to see the reduction, that’s why you’ll need a minimum of 6
treatments. Package pricing is available.
What kind of downtime should I expect?
There really is no “downtime”, but we do recommend no hot tubs, swimming pools, steam rooms or saunas for 24 hours post treatment. Excessive exercise and sun exposure should be avoided for the first 24 hours post treatment, and as always, wear an SPF of at least 30.
What kind of pain should I expect?
It is a laser, so there will be some discomfort. There is a cryogen spray that is emitted prior to and after each pulse to aid in comfort. We can provide an ice pack if needed and you are welcome to pre-treat with a topical numbing cream if desired.
Do you have any packages available?
We do have packages available and we also offer a la carte pricing.
