What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a process that removes hair by exposing it to pulses of laser light that destroy the follicle. The laser needs to be able to identify your hair follicles during your treatment sessions. Therefore, it is important for you to avoid waxing and tweezing for six weeks prior to any laser hair reduction. We encourage you to shave your treatment areas the day before treatment to maximize your results.
You may return to your normal activities after your laser treatment. You will be advised to use sunscreen on any treated areas that will be exposed to the sun, but limiting sun exposure is best.
If you’re not happy with tweezing, shaving, or waxing to remove excess hair, consider getting a laser hair removal treatment.
What Are The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal?
Our GentleMAX Pro system safely reduces unwanted facial and/or body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. A noninvasive pulse of light is delivered to an area of the skin to reduce the unwanted hair. Experience fast and effective hair reduction today without sacrificing your comfort.
Each laser pulse takes a fraction of a second and treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter within a second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated within a minute, larger areas, such as the back or legs, might take up to an hour.
On average, 4-8 treatments are needed to see optimal results. Laser hair reduction treatments are performed every 4-8 weeks depending on the area of the body being treated.
While laser hair removal doesn’t get rid of hair permanently, it does reduce hair growth dramatically. Electrolysis is the only FDA-approved procedure for permanent hair removal.
You can get it done anywhere on the body. The machine covers large places relatively fast. There are also no limits to the places you can get laser hair removal. One thing to take into consideration is that laser hair removal isn’t very effective on people with blonde or gray hair.
The average cost of laser hair removal treatments is $235 per treatment. However, the cost will vary widely depending on factors like the size of the area being treated, time, and number of treatments.
No hair removal method can ensure you that the re-growth of hair will be permanently stunned. However, laser hair removal is the most effective way also to reduce the hair re-growth by 20% each session.
Laser hair removal does not hurt as much as waxing. You will feel heat, as if a hot towel is being placed on your skin.
