What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is one of the most common cosmetic treatments performed in the United States. It uses concentrated laser light to eliminate hair follicles in unwanted areas.
The most common areas in which laser hair removal is performed are: face, legs, chin, chest, back, arms/underarms, and bikini lines.
Over a series of treatments, laser hair removal eliminates hair follicles. For best results, it is important that you do not shave within 2 days of your treatment. A topical gel will be administered to protect your skin and help the light penetrate your skin. Afterward, you may receive ice packs or creams/lotions to ease any discomfort. Your skin might appear to be sunburnt for a day or so, but you will notice the hair falling out over the next few weeks.
Laser Hair Removal costs can range from $100 to $500 per treatment, depending on the size of the area.
For best results, laser hair removal should be performed every 4-6 weeks until the hair removal is permanent.
Laser Hair Removal has several long-term benefits. Most notably, though it is an investment upfront, long-term you will save time and money from not paying for other hair removal processes such as waxing and shaving.
