LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQ
How much does it cost?
Getting laser hair removal varies in cost, depending on the area being addressed on the body. In addition to how many treatment sessions you will need to get optimal results. To help you understand the benefits of laser hair removal, think of the time and energy you currently spend on shaving, waxing, or other hair removal methods. In comparison, laser hair removal is usually less expensive overall and will save you energy and time in the long run. Your technician will create a personalized plan with the number of sessions we suggest and prices.
Is it permanent?
An effective treatment, laser hair removal offers lasting improvements. While men and women can enjoy the benefits of the procedure for a long time, laser hair removal is technically semi-permanent since some hair follicles may continue growing. However, patients find the majority of the hair will be gone after their treatment plan has concluded and even if a few hairs pop up, it’s easier to manage. Additional laser sessions may be scheduled to take care of any stragglers or new growth as well.
Why do I need multiple sessions?
Hair growth happens in cycles. While some hair follicles are growing, other follicles are dormant. Each hair follicle grows in various stages. Because of this, multiple sessions are suggested to target each follicle when it is in a growing phase. Sessions completed over several weeks will provide the smoothest, most effective result.
Does it hurt?
The process of laser hair removal may cause minor discomfort, but it is not considered painful. Patients should feel a slight snap when the Harmony XL PRO handpiece targets and removes the hair follicle. Your technician can apply a local anesthetic to the surface of the skin before your treatment. Patients used to getting waxed report that laser hair removal feels more comfortable than a session of waxing.
