Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
In short, yes, this treatment can permanently get rid of unwanted hair but the amount of sessions needed to achieve this is going to vary for each person. With the right amount of treatment sessions, you can be completely rid of unwanted hair in many areas. Those with thicker, darker hair will likely need more sessions to fully be rid of unwanted hair as opposed to those with finer, lighter hair who will need fewer sessions.
During your consultation, our experts will be able to evaluate your specific case and give you a better idea of how many sessions it will take before you stop seeing unwanted hair returning altogether. Most people find that between 6 and 10 sessions are enough for unwanted hair to stop returning.

Both women and men can benefit from this treatment if they are tired of shaving, waxing, plucking, and other methods of hair removal. More men are actually deciding to have this treatment to also be free of other means of hair removal.
6. How Long Will My 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. A larger surface area, like the legs, is going to take longer than a smaller surface area like the upper lip or underarms. It will also depend on how many areas you are having treated. However, most treatment sessions will not take longer than an hour with most taking around 30 minutes in total.
7. How Often Can I Have Treatment?
Because of the cycle of hair regrowth, you can typically have treatment every 4 to 6 weeks, but this can vary from person to person. Our staff will let you know how long you, specifically, should wait in between treatment sessions so that you can get the best results possible.
8. Can I Have More Than One Area Treated in the Same Treatment Session?
Of course! This treatment is safe and effective enough to treat more than one area in the same session. If you want hair from your legs and underarms removed, that can be done in the same session. As many areas as you would like to have treated can all be done at the same time. Just note that the more areas are being treated, the longer the treatment session is likely to run.
9. How Do I Get Prepared for My Treatment?
Before treatment, it is a good idea to let the hair grow in the area or areas you are having treated. This will allow the laser to target the hair while it is in various stages of growth. That will actually help the treatment work even better. Aside from that, there usually is not anything else you need to do to prepare for treatment. If there would be, our staff will be sure to let you know.
10. Is There Downtime?
Not at all! As soon as your treatment session has ended, you can go back to your day as usual. You do not have to worry about any downtime at all! Some people have even had this treatment while on their lunch break and went right back to work!
