faq Permanent Laser Hair Reduction

What is Laser Hair Removal?
  • Laser Hair Removal is the use of laser energy to produce long-term hair reduction. This is accomplished by producing heat in the hair, which is transferred to the hair follicle, which in-turn produces inflammation, and this inflammation sends a signal to the hair follicle to go into the resting phase.

Is there any downtime?

  • No downtime is involved; People can return to normal activities immediately.

Are there any side effects?

  • Possible side effects include reddening of the skin and mild swelling. Burns, patchy regrowth and pigmentation changes are very rare.

How long do the results last?

  • The hair reduction should be permanent, though it will not eliminate 100 percent of hair growth, and occasional touch-ups may be necessary.

How many treatments are needed?

  • Because hair can only be affected during certain growth cycles, several treatments are necessary. Usually five to seven sessions or more are required to achieve the desired results.

How long does the treatment last?

  • The duration varies depending on your individual needs and the size of the area to be treated. Appointments usually range from a half hour to an hour.

How does the treatment feel?

  • Most People experience a little discomfort. Some People may feel heat or a slight stinging sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin.
