FAQs about Laser Hair Removal

What are the advantages of light-based permanent hair reduction?

Excellent long-term results
Fast treatment sessions that can take only minutes
Great for reducing hair from larger areas
Comfortable treatments with no downtime

What areas can be treated?

Light-based permanent hair reduction can remove hair from faces (except around eyes), backs, chests, arms, underarms, bikini lines, legs, toes, feet, hands and buttocks.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Permanent hair reduction is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. Your provider will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.

How does it work?

Light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue, so there’s minimal risk.

Do I need to do anything to prepare before this procedure?

For more comfortable and effective results please shave all areas to be treated the day of your service.

How long does it take?

Permanent hair reduction treatments take just minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas.

How many treatments will I need?

Several treatment sessions are recommended for the best aesthetic outcome. Permanent hair reduction technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth so several treatments are needed to affect all your unwanted hair. You do not need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.

What will the treatment feel like?

Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure.

How quickly will I recover?

You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Typically, most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts two to 24 hours. Ask your provider to discuss other possible side effects and the necessary post-treatment care with you.
