How Often Should You Get Laser Hair Removal?
This treatment works best when the laser is able to target any unwanted hair while it is in various stages of growth so waiting 4 to 6 weeks between treatment sessions is advisable. However, it is always important to listen to the experts in regards to how long you should wait in between treatment sessions. This will ensure that you get the best results safely!
Areas That Can Be Treated
There are a number of areas in which this treatment can be highly effective. If you do happen to have an area that is not mentioned below where unwanted hair is a concern, let our staff know. They can have a look at the area and determine if this treatment can be helpful!
This is one of the most popular areas of treatment for good reason. Dealing with constantly removing unwanted hair from the legs can take up a lot of time, not to mention the annoyance from visible irritation due to shaving on this region. With this treatment, unwanted hair on the legs can be gone for good, allowing you to be ready for any occasion.
The sensitive area under the arms can become a hassle when it comes to hair removal because most methods can leave this area red and irritated. With this treatment, however, unwanted hair on the underarms never has to be a concern again, or the irritation that other methods of hair removal may cause. You can have smooth underarms all the time without any worries!
Many people who have unwanted hair on the arms have opted to shave it which typically only amplifies the problem, causing the hair to come back thicker and even more noticeable. This treatment can take care of any unwanted hair on the arms without any pain or hassle.
The Bikini Line
The skin around the bikini region is also sensitive and therefore prone to irritation, making shaving and waxing in this area not only inconvenient but also often irritating. With this treatment, any unwanted hair on the bikini area can be a thing of the past. You will have smooth skin, minus unwanted hair without any concern for irritation or redness.
Those who have unwanted hair on their backs know how frustrating it can be to get to. Usually, waxing appointments are required that not only eat up time and money but can also be painful. Via this treatment, unwanted hair on either the top of the back, the middle of the back, the bottom of the back or the entirety of the back can be erased for good, ensuring you are ready for any situation or occasion!
The Upper Lip
Unwanted hair on the upper lip is a more common concern than you may think. Lots of people have more noticeable hair on their upper lip that they would rather not have. With this treatment, you will never again have to withstand another painful waxing session to rid yourself of unwanted hair on this location. You will be left with smooth skin!
Once again, if you happen to have other areas in which unwanted hair is a concern, let our staff know. They can have a look at that area and let you know if this treatment can also take care of that unwanted hair. Oftentimes, it can! So, be sure to ask as our staff wants you to get the most out of this treatment and leave with the results you are looking for!
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does Treatment Hurt?
No. Unlike other forms of hair removal where the hair is either ripped out by the root or simply removed from the surface, this one is completely painless. The laser heats up the hair follicle while totally ignoring the surrounding skin. You do not have to be concerned about any discomfort as a result of this treatment. It is totally painless!

3. How Long Does a Treatment Session Take?
The amount of time that your treatment session will take is going to depend on the area or areas you are having treated and other factors. Typically, most sessions take about 30 minutes or less. Some may last for up to 1 hour but it is rare for a treatment session to take longer than that. Many people love this treatment not only for its effectiveness but also for the short amount of time it takes to complete!
4. How Many Treatments Will I Need Before the Hair Ceases to Return?
This will depend on a number of factors including the thickness of the unwanted hair and the color of the unwanted hair. However, in most cases, people find that 6 to 10 treatments are enough to stop the hair from returning altogether. For those who have lighter, thinner hair, it will likely take even fewer treatments than that. Our staff will be able to give you a better estimate once they evaluate the areas you wish to have treated.

It is a painless way to remove unwanted hair and with the proper amount of treatment sessions, it can stop returning altogether so if you want to be free of unwanted hair, this is a great option for you to consider.

So, let’s say you want to have hair on your upper lip removed as well as hair on your legs – both can be accomplished in the same session! It will help you reach your goals even more quickly.
7. Will This Treatment Dry Out My Skin?

8. What if I Have Thicker Hair?
Even if you do have thicker hair, it is likely that this treatment can still help!
