Frequently Asked Questions
How does laser hair treatment work?
The laser produces a beam of concentrated light. The light emitted is absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser heats up the hair and significantly impedes the follicles ability to re-grow. An important part of the procedure is the cooling of the skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during, and after each laser pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root. The combination of this cooling method and other important key parameters allows for safe and effective treatment for all skin types.
How long does the treatment take?
The length of a laser hair removal treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated..
How many treatments are required?
Multiple sessions recommended, due to the stages and cycles of hair growth. The number of treatments you need will depend on the specifics of your situation. Treatments occur at intervals of 4-10 weeks, depending on the area of the body being treated.
Patients with diagnosed polycystic ovary syndrome may require additional treatments beyond a typical regimen.
Does it hurt?
It’s possible that you will experience mild discomfort. Our lasers use a cooling device to protect your skin from heat, minimizing the pinching sensation that often accompanies the treatment.
Are there side effects?
