Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser hair removal cost?
A laser hair removal treatment varies in cost based on the size of the treatment area, as well as how many sessions are needed to get optimal results. To help you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair removal, think of the energy and time you are spending on waxing, shaving, or other methods. In comparison, laser hair removal is usually cheaper ultimately and can save you energy and time in the long run. Our team will create a personalized treatment plan with the number of sessions we suggest and prices.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces lasting results. While you can enjoy the benefits of the procedure for a long time, it's technically semi-permanent since some hair may continue growing. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair follicles will be not growing anymore once their plan has concluded, and if a few hairs are still growing, it's easier to manage. More laser hair removal treatments can also be scheduled to address new growth and any stragglers as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth happens in cycles. While some hair follicles are in a live growing phase, other follicles are resting. Since every follicle is in a different stage, multiple sessions are recommended to target each hair follicle when it's in a growing phase. Scheduling your sessions over several weeks to help you get the smoothest, most effective result.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Your laser hair removal session may cause some discomfort, but it is not considered a painful procedure. Patients should feel a small snap as the Harmony XL PRO handpiece targets and removes each hair follicle. Your technician may apply a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin prior to the start of your treatment. For patients who have been getting waxed, they report laser hair removal feels much less discomfort compared to a normal waxing session.
