The average person sees a 48% reduction in hair growth after three treatments and up to 80% lasting reduction after 6-8 treatments. Results will vary from patient to patient. After treatment completion, any remaining hair will usually be finer and lighter in color. Most clients require 1-2 touch ups each year.
Lasers safely remove unwanted facial and body hair by selectively targeting melanin (pigment) inside the hair follicle, generating energy in the form of heat at the root of the hair, and destroying the hair without damaging the skin. Essentially, laser treatments impair the active growth stage of the hair follicle without harming any surrounding tissue.
Most individuals experience no more than a slight stinging sensation as the laser pulses are applied. Some parts of the body do tend to be more sensitive than others and a topical numbing cream is available.
Laser hair removal treatments are extremely safe and our professionals are certified laser specialists and New York state licensed aestheticians.
The length of an individual laser hair removal treatment is determined by the density of hair growth and overall size of the area to be treated. Small areas may take as little as 15 minutes, while larger areas, such as the back and leg, may require up to an hour or longer.
The number of treatments required for long-term benefits depends on the area being treated, your hair density, and the hair’s growth cycle. There are three phases of hair growth — Anagen (active), Catagen (regression) and Telogen (resting). Laser technology is designed to treat hair in the Anagen phase of growth. Additional factors, including age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism, influence hair growth and play a role in the location, thickness and resilience of your hair. Although each client is unique, experience tells us that you can expect an average of 4-8 treatments spaced 6 to 12 weeks apart, depending on the body location of the unwanted hair.
Depending on the body area, only 30% or less of your hair may be in the active growth phase at any one time. A series of treatments will be required to achieve the long term improvement that you desire. These treatments are spaced 4-12 weeks apart based on your hair growth cycle.
Compared to a lifetime of waxing, shaving or purchasing depilatory creams, laser hair removal is very affordable. Price is based on the size of the area to be treated.
