What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an advanced hair reduction technique that produces long-lasting results. Many people pursue laser hair removal in order to achieve permanent hair reduction in certain areas of the body. This can eliminate the need to repeatedly shave, wax or pluck unwanted body hair.
Laser hair removal treatments target the root of each hair with laser energy. The root of the hair follicle will be heated and destroyed, making it impossible for the body to produce hair from that root again. To accomplish this, Art of Balance Wellness Spa uses several lasers, which include the ndYAG, Cynosure Elite and Alexandrite lasers. By specializing in multiple laser systems, we can provide effective laser hair removal treatments for all hair and skin types. These treatments can address hair in the following areas:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
- And more
How Much Does the Laser Hair Removal Treatment Cost?
The cost of laser hair removal treatments will vary, as we find each guest pursues treatment for unique and often personal reasons. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals so we can administer a personalized laser hair removal treatment best suited for your needs. At this time, we will be able to inform you of the cost of treatment. If you have any concerns regarding the cost of your treatment, you may want to consider one of our financing options.
What is the Laser Hair Removal Treatment Like?
The laser hair removal treatment may involve the use of a topical anesthetic, which will help minimize any discomfort caused by our laser systems. During treatment, a handheld laser device will be placed over the desired treatment area. Hair follicles are then targeted and destroyed using laser energy. This may cause a warm or even stinging sensation, which many people compare to the snap of a rubber band on the skin. The length of treatment will vary depending on the thickness of the hair and the size of the treatment area.
What is the Laser Hair Removal Recovery Like?
Laser hair removal can cause some redness and sensitivity in the skin, much like the effects of a sunburn. The skin will be sensitive after treatment, so it is important to avoid excessive sun exposure until the skin has completely healed. You can resume most normal activities immediately after your appointment, and you can expect the skin to be fully healed within about a week.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
In the weeks following your laser hair removal treatment, hairs in the treated area will shed. Not all body hair grows in unison, so multiple treatments are needed in order to target every single hair follicle in a given area. During your initial appointment, we'll develop a personalized treatment plan so you'll know how many treatments you'll need to achieve your desired results.

Laser Hair Removal
How permanent is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can be permanent when the hair follicles are completely destroyed during treatment. However, it is difficult to completely destroy all hair follicles in a single treatment. Patients can expect some hair regrowth following their initial treatment, and are encouraged to receive multiple treatments for complete and permanent hair removal.
What happens if you wait too long between laser treatments?
Laser hair removal treatments are typically performed in 1-month or 2-month intervals. This allows the skin to heal between treatments. If you wait longer than this period to receive additional treatments, you run the risk of missing a growth phase in your hair. Since laser hair removal must target active hair follicles, it is important to stick to the schedule recommended by your doctor.
Do you shave before laser hair removal?
It is recommended to shave before laser hair removal. If you do not shave, the laser can target hair on the skin’s surface, which will quickly become hot and burn the skin. By shaving before treatment, you assist the laser in accurately targeting the hair follicle itself.
Does laser hair removal remove hair instantly?
Laser hair removal begins taking effect during treatment, but you may not notice a reduction in hair immediately. In fact, it can take the body a few days or weeks to fully shed hair from the hair follicles in the treated area. Don’t be concerned if you don’t see results instantly!
