Common Questions About Laser Hair Reduction

You’ve spent enough of your life shaving and waxing away that unwanted hair on your legs, arms, and face. It’s time to be rid of it once and for all with laser hair reduction.

How Does Laser Hair Reduction Work?

Laser hair reduction is an effective way to eliminate that unwanted hair that you have grown tired of shaving and waxing. Laser hair reduction uses a powerful laser that emits light wavelengths as well as heat energy. The laser targets your hair follicle and affects the melanin it contains. Once the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy, it is damaged in a way that prevents it from producing hair.

Is It Safe and Effective for All Skin Types?

Yes, laser hair reduction is safe and effective for a variety of skin tones and types. In the past, laser technology wasn’t as advanced, which meant that it worked better on certain people. However, our laser is able to be used on lighter hair as well. Of course, results vary based on a number of factors.

What Areas of the Body Does It Treat?

Laser hair reduction is able to treat various areas of the body where you have unwanted hair, including the arms, chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, back, lips, bikini area and underarms.

How Many Treatments Could I Need?

You will need a series of laser hair reduction treatments to achieve your ideal results. Normally, we will recommend multiple treatments. The reason for this is that your hair goes through different growth phases, and laser hair reduction works best when your hair follicle is in the growth phase. That means that during one treatment, we will be able to treat the hair follicles that are in the active growth phase, but not inactive hair follicles. However, during your next treatment, we will be able to target the previously inactive hair follicles.

How Long Does a Treatment Take?

A laser hair reduction can last anywhere from mere minutes to an hour or longer. It all depends on the size of the area we are treating and other factors.

Does the Treatment Offer Permanent Results?

Laser hair treatments may give you permanent results, but like we said earlier, results vary.
