Laser hair removal first became available in the USA in 1997, and since that time, newer and more effective laser systems have been developed.
How many treatments will I need?
There are three cycles or phases of hair growth, and all laser hair removal devices can only treat hair in the active growing phase. To achieve a smooth, hairless face or body area will require six to eight treatments, performed every four to eight weeks, depending on the area of the body to be treated. Laser hair treatment sessions last from a few minutes to an hour depending on the size of the area. You can expect to return to your normal activities immediately, and there are no side effects or downtime.
Is laser hair removal painful?
At Skintegrity, we use the most advanced laser hair removal systems to ensure your treatments are as effective and comfortable as possible. During your treatment as the laser pulses light energy into your skin, you can expect to feel a snapping sensation. Many clients describe this as virtually painless; however, if you are sensitive and concerned about pain, we can apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment.
