Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions
Laser hair removal is exploding these days and with good reason; people want to look and feel their best and given the society we live in today, it’s understandable.
Let’s face the facts- we are all judged by how we look, and because a person’s appearance is generally connected with how well they take care of themselves it’s all the more important. You get one chance to make a first impression, so considering laser hair removal is growing exponentially in the United States. Let’s look at a few of the most frequently asked questions about permanent hair removal and how that could affect your decision to get it done.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
A great question, and the answer is generally no. It is not so much a question of pain of actually having the procedure done, rather the effects of having a laser treatment in general. Many laser spa’s use cooling gels, or creams. Some centers use specific patented lasers (a system called “Laserfast’) that are known to mitigate pain and swelling and do not necessitate the need for gels and creams.
Occasionally, people’s skin will feel irritated and applying a cold compress, ice pack or taking a mild over the counter pain reliever is more than sufficient. Getting rid of unwanted body hair is not something most people are nervous or afraid of. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a simple, easy to perform procedure that is very well tolerated.
How Long Before I See results?
Depending on the person and types of lasers used an individual can see results in as little as their first week. Usually, to see the full effect of the treatment, several sessions are required. Depending on the spa’s equipment, skill of the technician and so on, 5-8 sessions is usually enough to fully eradicate hair in the treated area.
Is It Permanent?
Every laser spa and center will have its own set of guarantees, rules, and guidelines in terms of proper expectations. Some centers will not guarantee anything, while others will offer a 2 year hair free guarantee. It is suggested that you choose a laser spa that guarantees there work especially for a specific period of time.
