FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Although unwanted body hair is often a source of low self-confidence, removing it takes time we often don’t have. It’s now possible to get rid of unwanted hair quickly with laser hair removal by Balance Hormone Center.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL REALLY WORK?
Yes, laser hair removal does really work. Most of our patients report an overall reduction in hair growth after their laser treatment.
IF SO, HOW DOES IT WORK?
Laser hair removal uses an 810 nm diode laser that converts to heat, which is then absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The energy then travels down the shaft to damage or destroy the hair follicle, inhibiting further growth.
HOW MUCH IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
The price of laser hair removal depends on the size of the treatment area and the number of sessions you’ll require.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?
The permanency of laser hair removal depends on whether the hair follicle is destroyed or damaged. It’s permanent when the hair follicle is destroyed. But if the hair follicle is only damaged, the hair will eventually regrow. The amount of time it takes for the hair to regrow can vary, but you may notice some regrowth within a few months.
HOW LONG DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL LAST?
On average, after going through four-to-six sessions, laser hair removal should last six-to-twelve months. This time may vary based on the unique hormone fluctuations in each patient.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?
No. In the past, older lasers felt like rubber bands snapping against your skin, which can be uncomfortable when used on sensitive areas of the body. Yet, our laser feels like a cold piece of metal gliding across your skin, no discomfort involved.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
You should expect five sessions, spaced around 3-6 weeks apart. No two treatment plans are the same. We’ll discuss how we plan to move forward to help you reach your desired result at your initial appointment.
HOW LONG DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL TAKE?
The time it takes to complete a laser treatment depends on the size of the area being treated. Typically, our treatments range from five-to-twenty minutes.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?
Yes, laser hair removal is completely safe. There are mild side effects that can occur such as redness and irritation after your treatments, but these aren’t common. If you do notice side effects after treatment, we ask that you please reach back out to us.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
To prepare for your laser hair removal treatment, shave the area 24 hours prior to your appointment. You should also avoid sun exposure, as even a minor sunburn can make the procedure uncomfortable. Before your appointment, remove any makeup that may be covering the treatment area.
