How Effective Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal can get rid of any unwanted hair for good but the correct number of treatment sessions first must occur.

This treatment option can help almost everyone remove unwanted hair but the number of treatment sessions will vary from person to person which is what makes the consultation process so important. It will answer all of your questions, give our staff a better idea about your goals and expectations and give you better information about how many sessions it will take before you see the hair gone for good.

Areas That Can Be Treated

Under the Arms 

Other methods of hair removal in the sensitive area under the arms can cause a lot of irritation and razor burn. It can not only not look great but it can sometimes be uncomfortable as well. This treatment will get rid of that unwanted hair and save you all of the future irritation that could result from using shaving, waxing, and hair removal creams. You’ll simply have smooth underarms!

The Legs

Probably the most popular region that people opt to have this treatment is on their legs. While you can either do the full leg or just the bottoms of the legs, this treatment can effectively get rid of unwanted hair on this area and leave you with legs that are smooth all the time! You won’t have to sacrifice time in the summer to get rid of unwanted hair anymore. You can be confident for any occasion at a moment’s notice.

The Bikini Area

This region is another area that is prone to irritation when other methods of hair removal such as shaving and waxing are used. With this treatment, you will not have to deal with irritation anymore and simply have smooth skin where the frustrating, unwanted hair used to be.

The Arms

There are a number of people that do suffer from thick, unsightly arm hair. Many do try to shave the hair in this region away only to find that it comes back thicker and even harder to deal with. This treatment will tackle the problem at the source and stop any hair in this area from coming back once and for all.

The Upper Lip

Waxing and shaving this region can also sometimes cause the hair to come back thicker which only makes it harder to deal with in the future. This treatment will get rid of the hair and give you back the confidence to never again have to worry about it.

The Back

Excessive back hair is another issue that many people have. It can cause a lack of confidence and can be pretty difficult to deal with on your own given the location. With this treatment, you won’t have to worry about how you are going to remove the hair in this area again. You can simply be confident that your back is smooth and all the unwanted hair is no more.

Other Areas

If there are other areas of concern that you have in regards to unwanted hair, please let our experts know. They will be able to take a look at the area and see as to whether or not this treatment could also help in that region.

Some Benefits of Treatment 

There are even more benefits to this treatment option other than being free of unwanted hair that you may not have thought of. Let’s talk about just a couple.

No More Razor Burn or Other Irritation 

Dealing with razor burn and other irritation caused by various methods of hair removal can not only be uncomfortable but can look uncomfortable too. With this treatment, you will never have to worry about any razor burn or other irritation. The unwanted hair will be gone and the skin left behind will be free of bumps and other forms of irritation!

Smoother Skin

Most people find that their skin is much smoother in the area or areas they have had treated using this treatment option. This is likely because the skin in that area is no longer experiencing the harshness of other hair removal options like shaving or waxing that can dry the skin out. A lot of people who have this treatment are delighted by this unexpected benefit!

No Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs can be painful and can sometimes even lead to other issues. This treatment will ensure that you will not have to deal with painful ingrown hairs ever again because the hair that can become ingrown is no longer returning.

Save Time & Money

Think about all the time you have spent using other methods of hair removal. The appointments, the hair removal itself, and other factors take up a lot more time than many people realize. It also costs a good bit of money. With this treatment, all that time and money will be returned to you because you will not have to deal with or worry about removing hair in other ways.

Frequently Asked Questions 

1. Does It Hurt? 

No, unlike waxing that can oftentimes be uncomfortable, or plucking that can actually hurt at times, this method of hair removal is not going to cause you any pain or discomfort. Our staff ensures that you are kept totally comfortable throughout the use of the device. You do not have to worry about any pain when it comes to this treatment option!

2. Is This Even Safe?

Absolutely. This treatment simply works by heating up the hair follicle beneath the skin using a highly concentrated laser that focuses only on the follicle while totally bypassing the skin around it. The process removes the pigment from the hair and stops the cycle of regrowth before it starts. There is no risk to your safety or the safety of your skin.

3. How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?

This will depend on a number of factors including hair color and hair thickness. As previously mentioned, our staff may be able to give you a better estimate of how many sessions you may need before the hair stops returning for good. Most people find that 4 to 6 treatment sessions are more than enough to stop the cycle of hair regrowth for good.

However, those with thicker hair may need more treatment sessions. Also, some people may see the hair stop returning after fewer treatments.

4. How Do I Know if This Is Right for Me?

This treatment is a great option for any person who has unwanted hair on their legs, arms, underarms, upper lip, and other regions. Because this treatment works by killing the hair at the source, it is effective for most hair colors and types. During your consultation, our professionals will let you know how many sessions you may need and whether or not this is a good option for you.

5. Can I Have More Than 1 Area Treated During the Same Session?

Absolutely! If you want to have unwanted hair removed from more than one area, that can be done in the same treatment session. Say you wish to have hair removed from your upper lip and your legs, both can be done in the same session since the treatment process is so gentle and safe.

6. How Do I Get Ready for Treatment?

It is a good idea to just let the unwanted hair grow in the areas you plan to have treated in the weeks leading up to your treatment session. This is going to help the device target the hair while it is in different stages of growth which will help it work even better. So, instead of actually prepping for your treatment, it is best to actually do the opposite.

7. Is There Downtime?

No. As soon as your treatment session is over, you can get back to your daily activities without worrying about downtime. This is not a surgical treatment or an invasive one that is going to require downtime.

8. What if I Have Thicker Unwanted Hair?

Even if you do have thicker hair, you can still benefit from this treatment option but it is a good bet to plan for more treatment sessions than those with lighter, thinner hair need. Our professionals will take a look at your case and determine if you can still benefit from this treatment.

9. How Long Does a Treatment Session Take?

This may vary for each person depending on which areas are being treated. Most sessions, however, do not run longer than 30 minutes unless you are having more than 1 area treated. During your consultation, if you are worried about time, simply ask our staff how long they think your specific hair removal session is going to take and they will do their best to estimate accurately!

10. Is This Only for Women?

Not at all. This treatment is for any person who wants to get rid of unwanted hair for good, and is equally suitable for both men and women. Because of the way this treatment works, by targeting the follicle beneath the skin, most people can benefit from this treatment if they want to be rid of unwanted hair!
