Please read on; this might be good stuff!
Laser hair removal has been around since the mid-1990’s and works by applying laser light to the surface of the skin. That light is then absorbed by pigment (melanin) and converted into heat in the hair follicle which slows and eventually stops future growth. With our laser, the Candela GentleLase, a beam of laser light about the size of a dime is applied to the skin. How many dimes would it take to cover your legs, or underarms, or bikini, etc.? You get the idea. Depending on the area, it could take a lot of dimes. We slightly overlap these dime sized applications of laser light to avoid missing anything. Each session can take as little as 5 minutes or over an hour, depending on the area. Speaking of session; that is how we charge. Most people hate spending thousands on some package deal. We hate it too and only charge by the session. Our fees are probably as low as you’ll find without looking on some couponing website full of Getty Images and inflated numbers and percentages.
As mentioned above, the goal of laser hair removal is for the pigment in the hair follicle to absorb laser energy, damaging the follicle to the point where it stops growing hair and not the pigment of the skin. Determining this is the reason for your initial consultation. Laser hair removal with the Candela GentleLase is best for patients with contrast between skin and hair color. After laser hair removal, patients may experience redness, puffiness, and a sunburn sensation for the first few hours to even a few days. You may return to your normal activities as soon as you feel comfortable.
With us your consultation is free, but we know that your time is valuable, so if it is determined that we cannot safely and effectively treat you with our laser, we’ll refer to you someone who can. If you read all of this; Thank you! 😊
Call our office to schedule a free consultation to determine if you are a candidate for laser hair removal.
Lasers are used to remove unwanted hair wherever it grows:
- Face (especially the upper lip and chin)
- Back and chest
- Bikini area
- Body areas (including arms and legs)
Will my treatment be done by a man or woman?
Your consultation and subsequent treatments will be with a female.
How many treatments do I need?
Most patients require between 6 to 10 treatments to achieve their desired result. Generally, after the first two or three treatments patients will see noticeably less hair than before. The hair also tends to be finer and lighter in color.
How much does laser hair removal cost?
See full pricing here. If you have visited the websites of other practices, you’ve probably noticed that most do not display their prices. We believe in transparency and know that cost is a common concern. We price our services competitively. Usually we cost less than other providers.
