How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal works by directing concentrated beams of light toward targeted hair follicles. That light is absorbed by the melanin, or pigment, that gives your hair its unique color.
The laser energy is converted into heat that damages the hair follicle. The damage impedes or prevents the follicle from producing new hair growth.

Everyone responds differently to laser hair removal. A series of treatments is needed to achieve the initial results, and your sessions range in length depending on the area of your body being treated.
You’ll likely need maintenance sessions to keep your skin soft and smooth. For some, laser hair removal delivers permanent results.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Laser hair removal isn’t painful. There’s no need for anesthesia or recovery time. You might experience a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band against your skin as the laser pulses. Some men and women report virtually no sensations during treatment. If you have sensitive skin, you can use a numbing cream to reduce discomfort.
After your treatments, your skin might be slightly red or swollen and could be sensitive to touch. These side effects lessen quickly as your body adjusts, and there is no significant discomfort.
Is laser hair removal expensive?
There is an up-front investment required with laser hair removal, but with our Lifetime Laser Hair Removal package, you don’t have to worry if you need periodic touch-ups — next month, next year or beyond. And, when compared to the expense associated with traditional hair removal options, the cost is reasonable. You may be so accustomed to paying those expenses that you’ve never tallied them up. All those razors, replacement blades, depilatory creams, wax strips, and salon visits aren’t free. The costs really add up over time. Your time is also a thing of value, and the hours you spend shaving, plucking and waxing could probably be better spent elsewhere. Then there’s the matter of dealing with razor rash and ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal delivers lasting results in a few short sessions and allows you to enjoy soft, smooth skin without worry.
