Answers to common questions about laser hair removal

What areas can be treated?

Laser hair removal can remove hair from almost anywhere on the body including the face, back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini and legs.

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 the 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 30 minutes for larger areas.

How many treatments will I need?

Since body hair grows in different stages it is not possible to remove all of your hair in a single treatment session. Therefore, several laser hair removal treatments are recommended for the best results. You can shave in between treatment sessions.

How much does laser hair removal cost?

Laser hair removal is more affordable than you might think. The price is dependent on the type of hair being treated and how large the treatment area is. Speak with a provider in your area for an estimated cost.

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?

You can resume 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.

Other less common possible side effects include pain, bruising, peeling, rash, prolonged itching, ingrown hairs, crusting, and infection; burning, blistering, and scarring; scabbing, broken capillaries, and acne or herpetic breakouts.

Pigment (skin color) changes may include lightening of the skin or darkening of the skin, lasting one to six (1-6) months or longer or possibly permanently.

Removal or lightening freckles or other pigmented lesions may occur. Freckles and other pigmented lesions may temporarily or permanently disappear in treated areas. There is a risk of lightening or darkening of vascular lesions in the treated area.

Your treatment provider can provide individualized information on potential side effects with you.
