Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Most women undergo laser hair removal treatments without discomfort. The hair removal laser is equipped with a special cooling device that cools the skin during treatment, making it a comfortable and pleasant experience. However, for highly sensitive individuals a topical desensitizing gel is available for added comfort.
The facial hair removal laser targets a greater number of hair follicles by using a wide beam of light, allowing for larger areas to be treated quickly and comfortably.
How many hair removal treatments will I need?
Hair growth occurs in three different phases. For laser hair removal treatment to effectively disable the hair follicle, the hair must be in the active growth cycle. For this reason, most people will achieve the desired result in six to eight treatments. After the initial hair removal treatment, hair may take up to 2 weeks to fall out.
Should I try home hair removal products before having laser hair removal treatments?
Many women use home products or day spa services to remove unwanted hair including waxing, sugaring, hair removal lotions and even at-home lasers. While these products and day spa services can result in a temporary removal of the hair, generally the hair grows back in a matter of days or weeks. Laser hair removal is the most effective way to reduce the growth of unwanted facial and body hair.
What is the cost of laser hair removal?
The cost of laser hair removal depends on the size and area being treated. Typically six to eight treatments are needed for full clearance of the hair. At The Skin Center, we offer laser hair removal packages and specials for affordable laser hair removal.
