Below are some frequently asked questions.
How do I get started?
We offer free consultations in which one of our Laser Practitioners will go over all of the details of laser hair removal. They will discuss frequency, number, and cost of treatments, and develop an individualized plan for your laser hair removal.
How does laser hair removal feel?
Most patients feel little discomfort because of the built in cooling device of the GentleMax Pro Laser. Some individuals may sense a short feeling of burning, as if a rubberband was snapped on the skin. This sensation will only last for a short time if at all. After treatment, the area may feel a little warm as if it is slightly sunburned. This may last for a few hours to, at very most, a few days. The degree of discomfort varies on the individual and the area treated. Some women can be more sensitive at certain phases of their menstrual cycle as well.
How many treatments are needed for laser hair removal?
Because hair grows in cycles and laser hair removal is effective on hair follicles in the early stages of growth, everyone will need multiple treatments. Typically six to eight treatments are recommended and, depending on the area being treated, are done four to six weeks apart.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
You will need to avoid waxing, tweezing, bleaching, electrolysis, threading or use of hair removal creams for six weeks prior to your first treatment. You should shave the area being treated the day before or the day of treatment. Between treatments, the only method of hair removal that should be used is shaving. If this is not acceptable please talk with one of our Laser Practitioners for suggestions to make the treatment period more convenient.
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks. Most areas of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area (called bikini waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen, and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.
Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin. This removes the wax along with the hair.
Strip-less wax, also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.
