How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Lasers use light and electric pulses to heat the hair follicle and destroy its root without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin. By targeting the follicle, laser treatment inhibits any future hair growth.
How many Laser Hair Removal treatments are necessary for complete removal?
The number of laser hair removal treatments necessary for complete hair removal varies from person to person and is best determined during a consultation. Most patients require 4-6 hair removal treatments, but the My Choice Spa estheticians usually recommend a series of 8 treatments spread out with 6 weeks in between.
Are there any side effects from Laser Hair Removal?
During laser hair removal, patients report a snapping feeling. Some patients report minor itching, redness or swelling in the treatment area that subsides within a few days. Less common side effects include: scabbing, infection, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. My Choice Spa licensed estheticians take precautions to minimize these risks by testing the skin to determine the appropriate laser and setting for your hair removal needs.
What type of Laser Hair Removal treatment will best suit my skin and hair color?
A cosmetic consultation is necessary to determine the specific laser treatment needed to meet your hair removal needs. The settings on our lasers can be adjusted depending on your hair and skin color.
