How many treatments do I need?
Due to the staggered nature of the hair growth cycle, in which some hairs are actively growing while others are dormant, laser hair removal requires multiple treatments to catch each hair as it enters the “active” growth phase. The number of laser hair removal treatments necessary for complete hair removal varies from person to person, and is best determined during consultation. Most patients require 4-6 hair removal treatments, spread out between 4-6 week intervals.

How does the laser target the hair for removal?
Lasers use light and electric pulses to heat the hair follicle and destroy its roots without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin. By targeting the follicle, laser hair removal treatments inhibit any future hair growth.

What areas can I laser?
Basically everywhere, except eyebrows. We prefer not to get too close to the eyes. Be sure to come in for our painless eyebrow waxing instead!

How long after waxing can I get the Laser Hair Removal done?
You need to wait at least 6 weeks after your last wax.

Is there any down time for laser hair removal?
After your treatment you should be ready to go back to work or go on with your day. In terms of hair removal, you will notice some hairs falling out during or directly after the treatment. This trend will continue for about 21 days - just when it is about time for you to reschedule your next appointment. Rare after effects include: redness in the area that was treated. If you were exposed to the sun without sunscreen, you may also notice a skin discoloration.

How do I prepare for my laser hair removal?
Before your first session, it is important for you to avoid waxing for six weeks. This is also the case with the use of tweezers. The laser needs to be able to identify the hair follicle. During this time period, shaving is acceptable.
You MUST stay out of the sun.  Any tanning of the skin can result in pigmentation in the areas you laser.
If you are prone to nervousness, you should avoid caffeine for 24 hours before your session.
On the day before your treatment, you should shave with a clean, new razor.  By shaving, the lasers will be able to locate the follicles.  Using a clean, new razor ensures there is no lingering bacteria that could cause contact dermatitis after your laser treatment. (Contact dermatitis is a delayed type of allergic reaction of the skin resulting from skin contact with a specific allergen.)
