Is it Permanent?
Yes The Hair Removal is Permanent hair Reduction, the hair we treat will not grown back and you can expect a 75% to 95% reduction after the 4-6 treatments.
What does it feel like?
Patient will feel a series of short snaps, somewhat like a rubber band snapping. Certain area’s you will have more discomfort then others. When you come in for your free consultation, the laser technician would be able to let you know if the area you would like treated is one we recommend topical anesthetic for.
Do I need to grow my hair out before coming in for treatment?
No! In fact we ask that you have the area Shaved the day or the day before since the treatment is targeting the hair follicle itself – not just the hair. Please remember no tweezing, waxing or hair removal creams for 4 weeks prior to your first treatment only shaving.
What’s the best way to get rid of unwanted hair?
Laser hair removal can be performed on virtually on any hair bearing part of your body including your arms, underarms, legs, bikini area, back, face, upper lip, neck, chest, abdomen and bikini line. You are familiar with the common treatments such as plucking, shaving, waxing and chemical epilation. These of course, are temporary fixes. That hair grows back quickly and some even swear that the hair grows in heavier and thicker!
Is laser hair removal painful?
The laser beam is not the discomfort. There is some pain because the individual hair follicle is surrounded by nerve endings. And it’s the nerve endings that cause the discomfort. While some of you may be able to tolerate the procedure without the use of an anaesthetic, others may find the application of an anaesthetic cream (such as EMLA) helpful. A generous layer of anaesthetic cream is applied for 60 minutes before the procedure and can provide adequate relief from discomfort during the procedure.
