Laser Hair Removal
810nm Diode treatment targets the root bulb of the hair follicle with a wavelength of light that is absorbed by the hair pigment of the active hair follicle (anagen phase), which heats the root bulb to a temperature that permanently disables the hair follicle. 30% – 50% of hair is in anagen at any time, this is why multiple treatments are necessary. The remaining hair then slowly sheds over the next three weeks leaving a smooth soft appearance. Three to six treatments are usually needed for maximal results. This procedure is quick and painless.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Getting laser hair removal will vary in cost based on the size and number of areas being treated, plus how many sessions are needed to get a smooth result. To help put the cost of laser hair removal into perspective, think of the time and energy you are putting into shaving, waxing, or other temporary methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is generally cheaper ultimately and can save you energy and time in the long run. Our team will develop a treatment plan with the number of appointments we suggest and costs.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces long-lasting improvements. While patients can enjoy the results of the treatment for years, it is considered semi-permanent because some hair follicles may not be affected by the laser. However, patients find the majority of the hair follicles are not growing anymore after their plan has concluded and even if a few hairs pop up, it is easier to manage. Additional laser treatments can be needed to address new growth and any stragglers as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth happens in phases. When some hair follicles are growing, other follicles are resting. Since every follicle is in a different stage, multiple treatment sessions are usually needed to target each follicle when it's active. Getting your treatments over several weeks to help you get effective results and smoother skin.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The process of laser hair removal may cause mild discomfort, but it is not a painful procedure. Most patients should feel a slight sting when the laser targets and removes the follicle. We may apply a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment. Patients who are used to getting waxed think that laser hair removal feels much less discomfort than a normal waxing session.
