WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal is ideal for people who want to reduce their dependency on methods like waxing, shaving, and plucking. Ideal candidates for laser treatment are in good general health and have no conditions that make their skin more sensitive to heat and light. We may ask you to stop taking certain medications that cause skin sensitivity prior to your appointment. Please inform our team at Horizon Medical Center of any pre-existing issues that may require special precautions.
HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
We provide laser hair removal treatments from the comfort of our private treatment rooms at Horizon Medical Center. Laser hair removal works through focused laser energy that targets and destroys individual hair follicles, preventing hair from growing back. In most cases, a series of 3 – 5 treatment sessions are performed over the course of 3 – 4 weeks to complete the hair removal process. This allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to change to the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective throughout the treatment area. The state-of-the-art laser technology used by our team targets only the hair follicles, preserving the skin and other tissues.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQ
How much does laser hair removal cost?
The cost of laser hair removal treatment depends on the size of the area and the number of sessions. When you consider the cost benefits of laser hair removal, estimate the time and energy you put into waxing, shaving, or other hair removal methods. In comparison, laser hair removal is typically cheaper and can save you energy and time in the long run. We will develop a custom treatment plan with the number of sessions and prices.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
As an effective treatment, laser hair removal offers long-lasting results. While you can enjoy the procedure results for a long time, it’s considered semi-permanent because some hair follicles may remain unaffected. However, patients find most of their hair is dormant after completing their plan. Even if a few hairs still grow, you generally find them very easy to manage. You may also need additional laser treatments to take care of any stragglers or new growth.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth happens in cycles. When some follicles are in a live growing phase, other follicles are dormant. Since each hair follicle grows in a different stage, patients may need several treatment sessions to target each hair follicle when in the growing phase. Undergoing your sessions over several weeks helps you get the smoothest, most effective result.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal can cause minor discomfort, but it isn’t too painful. Most patients feel a slight snap as the laser zaps the hair follicle. To reduce pain, we can apply a numbing ointment on your skin before starting your treatment session. Compared to getting waxed, many patients report that laser hair removal feels more comfortable.
