How do I know if I’m a good candidate for laser hair removal? Anyone looking to permanently remove/reduce hair in an area is a candidate.  Generally speaking, white, brown, black, male, female – if you are concerned about unwanted dark hairs, you are probably a candidate for laser hair removal. Other factors can influence the treatment process, but these are generally best evaluated and discussed in person.

This includes such sensitive areas as the lip, ears, nose, and groin area. The only areas that cannot be treated are those covered with a tattoo or permanent makeup, and the eyelid, due to sensitivity of the eyes to laser light.

How long does it take? Each laser pulse treats about a half inch area, which can contain ten or more hairs. The amount of time needed depends on the size of the area to be treated. The lip usually takes less than one minute; other areas, such as the leg, may take significantly longer. We normally advise that 6-10 treatments are needed for a 75-90% reduction in hair growth.

How effective is it?  Most people are thrilled with the result (often even after only one treatment)  and remaining hairs tend to be much lighter, softer, and finer.

What should I expect? Your laser therapist will first cool the area to be treated.  She will give you a pair of goggles to protect your eyes. Then she will move the laser slowly over the area.  It will be a bit painful, but manageable, and it’s over quickly.  Initially, you will need to return every 6 weeks until the hair growth slows down, then every 8 weeks. You may be red and sensitive over the area for a day or two, and may have small raised bumps that usually settle quickly.
