Laser hair removal first became available in the USA in 2008, and since that time, newer and more effective laser systems have been developed.
What is the cost of laser hair removal?
The evolution of this treatment has made laser hair removal effective for all skin types. However, you will need a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. The cost will vary, depending upon the size of the area, and the number of areas you want hair-free. To determine the price requires an evaluation of the areas to be treated, and we invite you to meet with us at Skintegrity for a free consultation.
How many treatments will I need?
There are three cycles or phases of hair growth, and all laser hair removal devices can only treat hair in the active growing phase. To achieve a smooth, hairless face or body area will require six to eight treatments, performed every four to eight weeks, depending on the area of the body to be treated. Laser hair treatment sessions last from a few minutes to an hour depending on the size of the area. You can expect to return to your normal activities immediately, and there are no side effects or downtime.
Is laser hair removal painful?
At Skintegrity, we focus on ensuring our patients are comfortable. Our advanced laser hair removal systems are not too uncomfortable to experience. A topical numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment if you are sensitive. The laser treatment produces a snapping sensation against your skin with the pulses of light energy.
