Frequently Asked Questions:
Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?
You may be a candidate for laser hair removal if you have unwanted hair on your body that you want to have permanently removed. Laser hair removal works especially well on individuals with lighter skin and darker hair. Any area of the body can be treated, but the most popular areas for laser hair removal are: the face, underarms, legs, bikini, and back.
However, you may not be the best candidate for laser hair removal if you have a tattoo on the treatment area or excessively light or blonde hair.
What can I expect when receiving laser hair removal?
During your laser hair removal treatment, a handpiece will be moved over the treatment area and intense pulsed light will be applied to this area. You may be given protective eyewear to wear during the procedure. To achieve the best results, multiple sessions will be needed to guarantee that hair in different growth stages is removed. Once the hair follicles are destroyed, they will never come back and you will permanently be hair free where the treatment was performed.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Yes. Laser hair removal is a minimally-invasive procedure and is safe when performed correctly. However, like any medical treatment, it can have possible side effects. These side effects are generally mild and can include: swelling, redness, mild scarring, or blisters.
