Nothing is more frustrating than spending the time to get ready, picking out your perfect outfit for a night on the town, grabbing your keys to walk out the door, and realizing you didn’t quite shave all the hair you didn’t want people to see. Don’t ruin your nights out, days by the pool, trips to the beach and perfect outfit days with your unwanted body hair.
Laser hair removal is a popular treatment for our patients who want to get rid of their body hair, but they always have the same questions and concerns. We wanted to go over exactly what you can expect with your laser hair removal treatments.
How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?
We all know laser hair removal isn’t a one-and-done type of treatment, but nobody really talks about just how many sessions are involved in getting the results you want. In reality, everybody’s laser hair removal sessions will differ depending on the size of their treatment area and the thickness of their hair. That being said, our patients typically require three to six treatments to see the ultimate results of their laser hair removal.
Is laser hair removal painful?
This is probably the most common question we receive about laser hair removal. While the sensation of laser hair removal may be a little uncomfortable, we do our best to ensure all of our patients are as pain-free as possible during their treatments. Before each session, we apply a generous amount of numbing agent to the treatment area. We also surround our patients in our luxurious, relaxing wellness spa environment to help calm their nerves during treatment.
Does laser hair removal even work?
If laser hair removal didn’t work, do you think it would really be as popular as it is? Yes, laser hair removal is a great solution for a permanent reduction of hair growth in your treated areas. That being said, it will not completely stop hair growth in your treated areas forever. Patients typically see a 90 to 95 percent reduction in hair growth following their treatments, and are encouraged to come in every year for follow-up treatments to maintain this result.
Should I get laser hair removal?
If you’re frustrated with hair growth on your face, neck, chest, arms, legs, underarms or back, laser hair removal treatments at Art of Balance Wellness Spa may be right for you. We encourage all of our patients to do some research on their procedures of interest and make sure they get all of their questions answered before their treatment. For this reason, we are always available for private consultations and are happy to sit down with you, discuss your concerns and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your cosmetic and wellness goals.
