Does laser hair removal hurt?
Most clients tolerate laser hair removal treatments very well and numbing creams are NOT necessary. The treatment is often described as a light 'snap' of a rubber band which does not last beyond the actual treatment.
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Laser hair removal treatments are priced by the body area. Prices range from as little as $75 per treatment (for the smallest body areas) to $275 or more (for the largest ones). A free consultation is required for a definitive price quote. Discounts are given for doing more then one body area on the same day.
Does laser hair removal have side effects?
As with anything in life, side effects are always possible. However, laser hair removal treatments are tolerated very well by most clients. Following a laser hair removal treatment, you can expect temporary redness and bumpiness in the treatment area---which resolves in a short amount of time. Long-term side effects are rare.
Am I am a candidate for laser hair removal?
If you have unwanted facial and body hair, you ARE a candidate for laser. A few things that would exclude you from laser hair removal treatments are:
* you are pregnant
* you are undergoing IVF to become pregnant
* you are on medications that prohibit you from exposure to light (often listed on warning labels)
* you have recently sun-tanned (2-3 week waiting period after last prolonged sun exposure)
* your hair does NOT have color (white hairs do NOT respond to laser treatments)
What else should I know before I begin laser hair removal treatments?
To ensure skin safety during your laser hair removal treatment, you MUST avoid prolonged sun exposure (tanning) for 2-3 weeks prior to your laser session. Please inform your laser practitioner about your current/recent medication history. Some medications cause skin sensitivity to light so it is very important that we know about this before your laser treatment.
