Frequently Asked Questions on Laser Hair Removal in Pittsburgh:

 

What Are The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal carries the following benefits: 

  • Excellent long-term results 
  • Fast treatment sessions (often within minutes) 
  • Great for reducing hair thickness from larger areas 
  • Comfortable treatments with no downtime

Unlike shaving that lasts days, waxing that needs to be repeated every few weeks indefinitely, or electrolysis that’s tedious, permanent laser hair reduction is a lasting solution that takes away the everyday hassle of dealing with unwanted facial and body hair. 

 

How Does It Work?

At your initial treatment, your hair should be visible on the surface of your skin. From there, the laser will be directed onto the hair. Heat energy will be drawn into the melanin of the skin, heating the rest of the hair shift. This heat will either weaken or destroy the hair follicle, allowing the follicle to detach from the hair shift. Without a healthy follicle, that hair will not regrow. 

The secret behind the procedure lies in the laser technology that targets and destroys hair cells responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding skin. It’s a simple approach to permanent hair reduction that’s fast, easy and FDA-cleared. Best of all, treatment sessions take just minutes and are practically pain-free. It’s the permanent hair removal solution you’ve been waiting for.

How Long (And How Many Visits) Does It Take To Undergo This Procedure?

Permanent hair reduction treatments take just minutes for small areas and about half an hour for larger areas. At least five treatment sessions are recommended for the best aesthetic outcome. You may need a maintenance treatment every 3-4 months and then 6 months – 1 year. Maintenance ranges from $50 -$120 per session. Laser hair removal technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth, so several treatments are needed to affect all your unwanted hair. 

 

What Will The Treatment Feel Like?

Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure. 

 

How Quickly Will I Recover? 

You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment. 

 

Are There Any Side Effects? 

Typically, most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts two to 24 hours. Ask your provider to discuss other possible side effects and the necessary post-treatment care with you.

 

Am I A Good Candidate For This Procedure? 

Permanent laser hair removal and/or reduction is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. Your provider will ultimately determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors, so a consultation is needed to firmly answer this question.
