LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQs
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
While laser hair removal is the most lasting form of hair removal, it’s not guaranteed to be permanent for everyone. It is certainly effective in minimizing the rate of hair growth, but there are cases where hair may not be 100% gone. You might still need periodic maintenance to target certain areas.
With many people, 4-6 sessions are all it takes to permanently remove unwanted hair. In the chance that hair does grow back, it will be significantly thinner and lighter in color than before. They will also be fewer in number. So, laser hair removal will permanently reduce hair regrowth, but it is not guaranteed to eliminate it completely. However, of all the potential hair removal methods out there, it is certainly the most effective and long-lasting.
How Does Permanent Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal treatment targets growing hair, damaging it at its follicle. The secret lies in the light-based technology that targets and destroys the hair cells. It only targets active hair cells, which is why multiple treatments are needed to achieve desired results. After each session, you will need to wait 4-8 weeks before returning for the next.
Permanent laser hair removal treatment works best for people with lighter skin tones and darker hair. This is because the laser light absorbs pigment. It’s important that the laser is damaging only the pigment from the hair follicle and not harming the surrounding skin. Darker skin tones and lighter body hair might not be eligible for laser hair removal for this reason. (If you fit those criteria, electrolysis hair removal might be a better option for you.

Laser hair removal treatment is a simple approach to permanent hair reduction that’s fast, easy, and FDA-cleared. Best of all, treatment sessions may only take a few minutes and are practically pain-free.
What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
With light-based permanent hair reduction, just a few laser hair treatments is all it takes to permanently minimize hair growth. The treatment reveals clear, silky skin that’s ready to bare every day, all year long.
Unlike shaving that lasts days (if even that), waxing that needs to be repeated every few weeks indefinitely, or the painful, tedious nature of epilating, permanent laser hair removal is a lasting solution that takes away the everyday hassle of dealing with unwanted facial and body hair.
Consider the length of time between each of these popular hair removal techniques. Shaving lasts 1-3 days, hair removal creams last 3-7 days, and waxing and epilating might last 2-4 weeks. With laser hair removal services, a small number of treatments later and you are done forever (with the exception of a few potential touch-ups).
With other popular hair removal methods, people often experience many unpleasant side effects. This can include razor burn, ingrown hairs, rashes, bumps, and stubbly hair regrowth. For those who often experience these types of issues, laser hair removal provides an incredible alternative.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost of laser hair removal is determined by several factors, so the exact price cannot be determined until you consult with your hair removal specialist. Generally speaking, however, you may be paying anywhere from $100 to $800 on laser hair removal treatment. According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost in the United States is about $390. However, this is only per session and does not include other expenses that may relate to the treatment, like fees and prescription costs.

How Many Sessions for Laser Hair Removal?
One of the main questions we get is “How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?” The truth is, you will need multiple sessions to effectively eliminate hair regrowth. It's important to keep in mind that the amount of sessions you'll require is different for everyone. Everyone has a varying amount of hair, different hair thicknesses, and a unique pace of hair growth. We will arrange sessions based on your specific hair growth cycles to thoroughly remove your undesired hair. It's also important to remember what type of results you're after. If you want to fully remove hair from a certain region, you'll need more sessions than if you only want to thin out the amount of hair. 4-6 sessions are typically recommended, but it could be more or less depending on the factors we’ve discussed.
