Before & After
Hair grows in cycles. Since various hairs will enter their growth cycle at different times, about 6-8 treatments at intervals of 4-12 weeks are necessary to disable most of the follicles in a given area.[/accordion_item][accordion_item title="Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Reduction?"]Laser hair removal is suitable for men and women who desire to remove unwanted hair. Hair removal is commonly done on underarm, legs, abdomen, lips, chin, back, buttocks, pubic area, thighs, face, neck, chest, arms, and toes.
Since the laser technology works by targeting dark pigment, it is most effective on pale skin and dark coarse hair. The lighter the skin and the darker the hair, the better are the results.[/accordion_item][accordion_item title="How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?"]Lasers designed for permanent hair reduction emit wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin). If the surrounding skin is lighter than the color of the hair, the energy of the laser is concentrated in the hair shaft, effectively destroying it without affecting the surrounding skin.
Since lasers target pigment, treatments are most effective on coarse hair because it has a lot of pigment and can absorb a lot of heat. Fine hair cannot absorb much heat requiring special treatment parameters to be reduced.[/accordion_item][accordion_item title="How many sessions will I need and how far apart should they be scheduled?"]Most patients need at least 6-8 treatments spaced 4-12 weeks apart. Because hair grows in cycles, several sessions are necessary in order to affect all hair on any given area. Due to the duration of hair growth cycles, treatments are usually needed once every 4-12 weeks. Hair cycle lengths vary depending on area of the body. Face usually requires more frequent treatments about 4 weeks apart, whereas areas such as legs and back need less frequent treatments closer to 12 weeks apart.[/accordion_item][accordion_item title="Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?"]Yes. Hair removal lasers have been in use since 1997 and the Food and Drug Administration approved them for “permanent reduction.” They disable hair permanently as long as the right type of hair is treated with an appropriate type of laser at effective settings.
With proper treatment, lasers can remove the majority of the coarse hair on a body area, but fine hair removal is only possible using special treatment parameters.
Generally, a patient can tell how much reduction was achieved from a course of treatments after waiting 6-12 months following their last treatment. Any hair that grows after the 12-month period is new hair that the body can develop due to numerous factors such as age, diet, hormonal changes. Patients who experience new growth at a later stage can get touch-up treatments.[/accordion_item][accordion_item title="How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?"]Please visit our online shop where you can find laser hair removal prices for all body areas including any price discounts and promotions.[/accordion_item][accordion_item title="Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?"]At Premium Cosmetic Laser Center, we use high power laser machines, equipped with the Cryogen cooling system (DCD) which provides comfort while allowing high efficacy. Generally, laser hair removal is not much more painful than waxing. The feeling resembles a rubber band snapping against the skin for a quick second. Pain is only felt while the laser is hitting the skin and doesn’t last. Most people do not require a numbing cream, though it can be prescribed to more sensitive patients.[/accordion_item][accordion_item title="Are There any Laser Hair Removal Risks or Side Effects?"]Some people may experience the following temporary side effects:
• Redness for up to 3 days
• Swelling around mouth of follicle for up to 3 days
• Tingling or feeling of numbness[/accordion_item] [/accordion]
