FAQ’S about Laser Hair Removal Treatment
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a procedure to remove unwanted hair from the body by using a “laser beam” light with different wavelengths against the skin. The limits on strength or power used on a laser is carefully designed by countless studies conducted of the hair follicle to best match the laser light and pulse duration to the follicle size, depth and location in efforts to stop hair from re-growing
Why is laser the treatment of choice for hair removal?
Lasers remove hair for good, giving you a long-lasting, even permanent result. In only a few treatments (generally six to eight) we can clear your skin of the unwanted hair that has bothered you for so long.
Traditional hair removal methods, such as waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, plucking/tweezing, sugaring, and stringing provide only temporary results — some for fewer than 24 hours. Within hours or possibly days, you are back at it again, hunched over a magnifying mirror to tweeze out facial hair, running a razor over tender skin, or enduring painful waxing. To make it worse, these methods can often stimulate hair growth!
Laser has another advantage, in that you NEVER AGAIN have to let the hair grow out a few days before your treatments in order to get it to work, as you do with the other methods. Once you start working with Laser Light, you begin your life of being hair free where you want to be!
How does laser remove hair?
Hair removal lasers emit a light at a specific wavelength that is known to be absorbed by the pigment (color) in the hair follicle( known as melanin) — without damaging the surrounding skin. The light is converted to heat energy, which in turns disables the hair follicle so that it will not produce another hair. Grey or white hair does not have the melanin pigment, so Laser is ineffective on them.
Who is perfect candidate for laser hair removal?
Men and women both qualify for laser hair removal. The process works best on light (pale) skin and dark coarse hair. The closer you are to this combination, the better the results will be.
Our Advanced Frost-Cool System diode laser works for all skin types (I –IV, even VI). At THE HAPPY LIVING, we provide an environment in which our priority is client safety, health, and positive results.
What makes the Laser hair removal treatment safe and comfortable?
At THE HAPPY LIVING, We use the Advanced Frost-Cool Technology to protect your outer skin during a laser hair removal treatment. The laser’s light emerges through a sapphire crystal window that is pressed against your skin, to instantly remove the heat that gives you a little “pinch” feeling as the laser pulses. Our equipment also emits a smooth pulse of light, which delivers a continuous energy level without characteristic spikes in energy that in some of the other lasers cause a sharp sting. You experience minimum discomfort during a Laser treatment, and many of our clients report that the sensation is much more comfortable than waxing, electrolysis, or even tweezing!
What areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?
Our Laser can safely treat any body part except for the small area inside the bony ridge of the eye socket.
How long does a laser hair removal treatment take?
A number of factors determine the length of time for a treatment. At THE HAPPY LIVING, we plan for adequate time to go as slowly or as fast as is comfortable and appropriate for each client. The size and “topography” of the area treated factors into the time required, as does the amount of preparation. As a general rule, legs and backs take an hour to an hour and a half, while an upper lip or the tops of ears may require eight to 10 minutes. The front of the neck or underarms can take as little as 20 minutes. Full body takes around 3 to 4 hours.
Why does it take a number of laser hair removal treatments to clear an area of excess , unwanted hair?
Hair grows in repeating cycles, and only in the actively growing phase does the hair contain enough melanin pigment to absorb sufficient energy to disable the hair follicle. When hair is in the dormant phase, it has little or no pigment, and it cannot absorb the laser light. When you take the treatment, we disable all of the hair follicles with actively growing hair in the treatment area. A few weeks later, some of your dormant hairs will have moved into the actively growing stage, and you will come in for a treatment to disable those. As this cycle gets repeated, you experience increasing reduction of hair.
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?
It will take six to eight treatments to achieve clearance of an area. We have some clients who are happy even just after four treatments, and a tiny minority who have needed more than eight
What is the cost of laser hair removal?
The cost of laser hair removal varies depending on the size, complexity and other factors of the area treated. THE HAPPY LIVING provides generous cost-effective packages and “combo” pricing to help you to get to your goal of being hair-free where you want to be as soon as possible. You will find our pricing fair and well worth the investment.
Why do temporary hair removal methods such as waxing and tweezing stimulate hair growth?
Waxing, tweezing and depilatory creams are among the top offenders for stimulating hair growth. When a hair root is pulled at or tugged on to remove it, a blood supply rushes to the area nourishing the hair follicle. When this process is done regularly the result is growth of very coarse, deep rooted hairs. Most clients are surprised to learn that years of waxing and/or tweezing have played a role in making the hair growth worse.
Is laser hair removal uncomfortable, or even painful?
You may experience a small but manageable sensation that we describe as a “pinch” or a “zap” when we pulse the laser. Most of our former waxing, stringing and electrolysis clients report that the discomfort is far less than those methods of hair removal.
NOTE: We recognize that some of the earlier aesthetic lasers(IPL or INDIAC) delivered painful pulses. If you have been treated with one of these devices and now fear a similar experience, please give us the opportunity to show you how much more comfortable our state-of-the-art technology can be.
Why is laser hair removal so much more expensive than the other methods of hair removal?
That is a myth: laser is NOT more expensive, especially when you factor in the value of your time. Certainly there is an up-front expenditure for a series of laser treatments – but you quickly get a return on your investment, all the while achieving your goal of hair removal! Infact if you calculate the amount compared to waxing, you would be saving a lot with Laser.
