Yes, the procedure is safe when performed by skilled professionals and with the proper equipment. The laser emits light energy that specifically targets the hair follicle. It eliminates the hair while the surrounding skin remains unharmed.
The cost of laser hair removal is largely dependent on the size of the area to be treated. Larger areas of the body are more costly than smaller areas because they require more time and pulses to treat. The price is also affected by the number of sessions required to achieve the desired results. Certain areas on the body may take more treatments than others, as they may be more affected by hormonal changes.
Any area of the body can be treated. The most popular areas that clients seek treatment for are the legs, bikini, under-arms, backs and face.
The most common sensation felt during the procedure is a small pinch, like a rubber band is being snapped against your skin. The feeling only lasts a few seconds and generally stops when the laser does. Our cooling equipment and lasers with large spot sizes help to minimize discomfort.
The number of treatments you will require depends on area to be treated. Legs, bikini, under-arms could take 6 treatments. Other more hormonal areas could require 8 treatments. They are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart to effectively reduce hair growth.
The most important thing to do before your first treatment is to stop waxing or plucking 3 weeks prior to your appointment. Also, for best results, you will want to make sure you are applying sunscreen throughout the course of the treatments to avoid any hypersensitivity to your skin.
