1) How do I decide where to go for my treatments?
When considering laser hair removal, it is important to remember that just because an office is cheaper or is offering Groupon discounts, it does not mean that it is the place for you. Make certain you choose somewhere in a medical facility, with the new technology and that the laser operators have been properly trained.
2) How much should I expect to pay?
There are many variables that determine the cost of laser hair removal: type and color of hair, size of the area, etc. Typically multiple treatments are needed, usually between 5-8 depending on area and length of growth cycle. At the time this question is being answered, individual laser hair removal sessions begin at $80, and we do offer special pricing in our monthly marketing. As always, consult a certified laser technician for an individual consultation, preferably someone who is supervised by a board certified physician, and be wary of any company that advertises extremely low prices.
3) How many weeks should I wait for my next laser treatment?
Timing between treatments is very important for optimal results with laser hair removal. Different areas of the body have different hair growth cycles. In order to catch the most hair in the active cycle during your laser hair removal sessions treatments should be scheduled according to the hair growth cycles. Face and neck treatments should be scheduled every 4-6 weeks, trunk areas including bikini, chest, back, underarms, stomach etc. should be scheduled ever 6-8 weeks, and legs 8-10 weeks apart. Typically 6-8 sessions are recommended to catch each cycle of hair growth, although some people may be satisfied with their results sooner. Following these guidelines should result in the greatest reduction of hair.
