We will determine your candidacy for treatment during your consultation. Laser hair reduction can only be used to treat black or brown hair. White, gray, blonde, and red hair is not effectively treated with laser hair removal.
When prepping for your first treatment, the area must be shaved, and it’s important not to use any self-tanner or have a tan prior to treatment. Laser hair reduction settings are based on natural skin tone, hair density, and quality. During your first appointment, we will take a picture of the hair density and quality of the hair before treatment. If you prefer, a topical numbing agent can be applied to the treatment area for an additional charge. The treatment area is then cleansed, a special gel is applied, and the treatment begins. Most clients describe the feeling as similar to a rubber band snapping on the skin.
After treatment, your skin might be a little pink and sensitive, but it does not get in the way of your daily life. You can immediately return to work or other activities. However, remember to avoid excessive sun exposure for two weeks.
