Frequently Asked Questions

What areas are safe for laser hair removal?

  • Our technology is FDA approved for treatment of hair on all parts of the body, however, we do not laser the eyebrows because of their proximity to the eyes.

  • No technology allows safe laser hair removal over a tattoo.

How long has laser technology been in use?

  • The laser has been used in medicine for nearly 50 years! Laser hair removal began about 15 years ago but has advanced significantly in the past 8-10 years.

  • We use the most advanced technology offering an unbeatable quality of treatment and experience.

  • Our treatments are specifically designed to be safe and effective for all colors of skin and comfortable/painless for all areas of treatment.

What is the difference between a Laser and IPL?

  • IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and is not a laser.

  • IPLs can be effective for some cosmetic procedures, but in our experience laser is a safer and more powerful solution.

Are home laser hair removal devices equally effective?

  • No. Home laser hair removal gadgets such as the Tria laser or Silk’n are low power devices made for those with a specific light skin tone and do not require formal training or previous laser hair removal experience.

What laser do you recommend?

  • We recommend the correct laser (we have options) for your skin color and hair color. We can customize these treatments to maximize the benefit and minimize the risk, providing you with a highly satisfying experience.

How should I prepare for my first treatment?

  • Avoid tanning/spray tan/artificial tan/sunlight to the proposed area of treatment for at least 4weeks prior to your first treatment and during the full period of treatment.

  • Minimize sun exposure with full-length clothing, hat and sun to reduce the risk of dark spots.

  • Avoid waxing/plucking/epilating/depilatory creams/electrolysis or similar treatments to the area for at least 4 weeks prior. This will cause the hair to be removed from the skin and therefore prevent the laser treatment from being effective.

  • Shave the area 24 hours before your treatment session.

  • Let us know if you plan to or currently are breastfeeding or pregnant. Also if you have taken Accutane in the past 6 months or have a skin/medical condition such as Keloid, Lupus, Cancer or other we will decide whether you may be offered treatment at present or in the future.

What are the risks of hair removal?

  • Laser energy, is controlled and safe through our technology, but can theoretically increase one’s risk of side effects such as light or dark spots, burning or keloid formation or other potential injuries to the skin.

  • We do not encounter these side effects with adequate preparation and in good treatment settings.

  • There is no evidence to suggest that Laser Hair Removal causes cancer as this form of energy is non-ionizing or cell changing.

How many sessions will I need?

  • On average people need 6-8 sessions, however, this varies depending on area(s) being treated, age, genetics, and health.

  • We cannot estimate the exact number for each individual. We should be able to control improvement between each appointment with appropriate intervals

How often do I need to come in for treatment?

  • It is recommended to come in every 4-6 weeks for face treatments and 6-8 weeks for other body areas. However, it depends on how soon you see hair growth. This will be discussed specifically during your consultation.

What areas can be treated?

  • All areas except for shaping of the eyebrows and around the eyes.

What type of laser do you use?

  • We use the Gental Max Pro which offers the Alex and the YAG laser (Alex is used for lighter skin, YAG is used for darker skin)

How do I prepare?

  • Do NOT wax, pluck, electrolysis, epilating or use any hair removal products for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.
