Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
Laser hair removal is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors.
Your provider will determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.
How does it work?
Light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue.
How long does it take?
Laser hair removal treatments take just minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas.
How many treatments will I need?
Several laser hair removal treatments are recommended for the best results. Your treatment provider can help tailor a plan just for you. You do not need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.
What will the treatment feel like?
Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure.
How quickly will I recover?
Although you will need to follow Post Treatment Procedures (below), you can resume most regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Some typical side effects of laser hair removal include a mild sunburn-like sensation (redness), accompanied by some minor swelling immediately following the treatment. These effects may last a few days.
Your treatment provider can provide individualized information on potential side effects with you.
