Q: What areas can be treated?
A: Laser hair removal can remove hair from the face (except around the eyes), back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini line and legs.
Q: Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
A: Laser hair removal is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colours. We will determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.
Q: How does it work?
A: Light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Laser hair removal treatments take just minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: Several laser hair removal treatments are recommended for the best results. Several treatments may be needed to remove all your unwanted hair. You do not need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.
Q: What will the treatment feel like?
A: Most people feel only a slight, momentary "snap" at the treatment site during the procedure.
Q: How quickly will I recover?
A: You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: Some typical side effects of laser hair removal include a mild sunburn-like sensation (redness), accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately following the treatment. These effects may last a few days.
Other less common possible side effects include pain, bruising, peeling, rash, prolonged itching, ingrown hairs, crusting, and infection; burning, blistering, and scarring; scabbing, broken capillaries, and acne or herpetic breakouts.
Pigment (skin colour) changes may include lightening of the skin or darkening of the skin, lasting one to six (1-6) months or longer or possibly permanently.
Removal or lightening freckles or other pigmented lesions may occur. Freckles and other pigmented lesions may temporarily or permanently disappear in treated areas. There is a risk of lightening or darkening of vascular lesions in the treated area.
There is a risk that the hair regrowth may be changed, such as little or no regrowth or more regrowth than before.
People of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean descent, as well as those who have an ill-defined hair line with no obvious transition of the hairline to the face, may have a higher risk of unexpected hair growth.
Your treatment provider can provide individualized information on potential side effects with you.
