How much does it cost?
Costs start at $200 and ranges, based on the area(s) treated. The lip area generally costs about $200, the face and neck costs from $200 to $450, the underarms and bikini costs from $250 to $300, and the back, shoulders and arms cost from $750 to $1,100. Package pricing is offered.
How many treatments will I need?
Approximately four to eight treatments are required. Treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart for the face, and six to eight weeks apart for the body. The full treatment area is covered during each procedure. Mild redness the day of treatment can be expected.
What should I do before my treatment?
Avoid tanning, tanning beds, waxing, plucking or threading, and bleaching for one to two weeks before treatment. There is no need to let hair grow long before the treatment. Shaving or clipping is fine and it should be performed one day prior to the procedure. Treatment areas should only have mild stubble at time of treatment. Backs must be shaven the day before treatment.
What should I do after my treatment?
Avoid bleaching or self-tanners for two weeks after treatment.
Is there downtime?
No downtime is required.
What are the benefits?
Whereas shaving, tweezing, depilatories and waxing are all temporary, laser hair removal offers a permanent method to remove unwanted hair. Side effects of waxing include the potential for allergic reactions, burns, ingrown hairs, and scarring. Waxing can also be quite painful. Depilatories can cause skin irritation and burns and must be performed weekly. Plucking and tweezing are impractical for large areas, can be painful, and may lead to pigmentation problems and scarring, especially in patients with darker skin
