5 Facts About Laser Hair Removal

5 Facts You Want To Know About Laser Hair Removal

Though it’s been around since 1997, many people are still unsure about the facts of laser hair removal. How does it work? What does it cost? Are you a qualified candidate? Before making your decision, reading up the facts will help you to determine if laser hair removal is a viable option for you. Below are 5 facts you should know when considering the service.

#1 JUST ABOUT ANYONE CAN BE A CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Most laser hair removal services work best on individuals with lighter skin and darker hair, however, our true diode laser is ideal for light, dark and tanned skin. When you book your appointment, be sure to describe both your skin tone and hair color to determine what will work for you.

#2 HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?

A concentrated beam of light is aimed at hair. The light is set to a frequency that allows it to target the pigment in the hair follicle without damaging the skin. The pigment then absorbs the light, which damages the hair follicle enough to prevent any future hair growth.

Because all hair grows in cycles, it means that any single treatment will never be able to reach all of the hair. This is why we offer packages of between 6-9 treatments to ensure that over the course of the treatments all of the hair is targeted with the laser.

#3 YOU CAN GET A SMALL AREA TREATED DURING YOUR LUNCH BREAK

Professional laser clinics have the shortest treatment time, with an average time per area of about 15-25 minutes. This makes it the most convenient time because this amount of time gives a lot more flexibility in terms of scheduling treatments during lunch breaks, etc.

#4 LASER HAIR REMOVAL DOESN’T HAVE TO HURT

Many people who have experienced laser hair removal equate the pain level to the feeling of a rubber band popping against your skin. It is important to keep in mind that not every machine operates the same, and that some spots are more sensitive than others. The bikini area and upperlip have skin that is typically more sensitive than areas such as legs and arms.

However, with higher quality lasers, like the one used at Laser by Nicole has been FDA approved to removes virtually all pain.

#5 LASER HAIR REMOVAL CAN BE VERY AFFORDABLE

Keep in mind that the larger the area and more time your service takes the cost can go up. Laser by Nicole offers many different packages to suit your needs that won’t break the bank. Contact us today to see what works for you.
