LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQ
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that varies in cost, depending on the size and number of areas being treated, plus the number of sessions recommended to get a smooth result. To you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair removal, consider the time and energy you are spending on shaving, waxing, or other temporary hair removal methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is generally more cost-effective and will save you energy and time in the long run. We will develop a personalized plan for you that includes the total number of appointments you need and costs.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
An effective treatment, laser hair removal offers lasting improvements. While you can enjoy the results of the procedure for years, laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent since some follicles may be unaffected. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair follicles are gone after their plan is done, and if a few hairs are still growing, it’s easier to manage. Additional laser hair removal sessions can also be needed to address any stragglers or new growth as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Follicles grow in cycles. When some follicles are growing, other follicles are dormant. Since each follicle grows in a different stage, several treatments are usually needed to target each hair follicle when it is growing. Scheduling your treatments over a few weeks helps you get better, smoother results.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal can cause some discomfort, but it is not too painful. Patients should feel a small snap as the Harmony XL PRO handpiece zaps each follicle. We may use a local anesthetic on your skin before the start of the treatment session to ensure you feel at ease during your treatments. Patients who have been removing hair by waxing often report laser hair removal causes less discomfort in comparison to a normal waxing session.
