Laser hair removal FAQ

Laser hair removal is a popular treatment that can be used on most parts of the body for removing or reducing unwanted hair. Here is some basic information that you should know about laser hair removal before scheduling your first treatment.

What is laser hair removal good for?

Laser hair removal if you’re interested in a solution for unwanted hair. Some of the reasons people choose this treatment include:

  • It saves money and time

  • It gives you smoother skin

  • It improves your confidence

  • It helps you look great year-round

Traditionally, laser hair removal worked best on patients with fair skin and dark hair, but today—thanks to technological advances—there are laser hair removal options for people of all skin types.

Why isn’t laser hair removal permanent on a woman’s face?

That’s because, for women, facial hair growth is impacted by hormones. To keep certain areas, like the lip and chin, free of hair, you may have to get touch-ups for new hair growth after the initial round of treatments. Results vary from patient to patient. 

What do I need to do to prepare for a laser hair removal treatment?

Use a sunscreen that is at least SPF 30+ to protect your skin and avoid tanning to reduce potential side effects from laser hair removal. You should also stop plucking and shave instead before treatment.
