Laser Hair Removal at Pure Luxe
With all the products on the market for adding bounce, shine, and luster to our locks it’s pretty clear that we have a love affair with our hair. While the hair on our head is often a source of pride and self confidence, as well as a prominent part of our appearance, hair that appears elsewhere on the body can be far less welcome. Laser hair removal can be a complete solution for body hair that is too thick, too dark, or growing in places we'd rather it didn’t. If you’re looking into this procedure and want to know more, you’re in the right place. We put together this handy guide to clear the air on the most common questions regarding laser hair removal.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
First developed by Dr. Theodore H Maiman in 1960, laser hair removal is a cosmetic hair elimination procedure that uses concentrated light in rapid pulses to eliminate the follicles that cause hair growth. The first laser used to destroy hair follicles was very inefficient, able to tackle only a few follicles at a time, and resulted in painful burns for the patient. Modern lasers are nearly painless and able to target larger areas at once.
Those with dark hair and light skin tend to get the best results from this procedure, but anyone with unwanted hair can benefit from it. There are a variety of lasers that are suited to different hair and skin combinations. At Pure Luxe, we offer the Candela laser to ensure we provide the best results possible for a broad range of patients.
Where Can I Get Laser Hair Removal Done?
Anywhere hair grows on the body can be treated, making laser hair removal a popular way of controlling the appearance of body hair—and where it is and isn’t allowed to grow. The most common treatment areas for laser hair removal include:
Face: This is a standard treatment for women who have facial hair issues and are tired of shaving or waxing. Facial laser hair removal for men is often performed when the hair is thicker than they’d prefer, or when it grows on ears or other unwelcome locations.
Bikini Line: This is a standard option for women, and can be a way of controlling excess hair in the bikini line region, or to remove the need to shave it at all. It’s an excellent solution for hair removal as it eliminates razor burn, stubble, and irritation.
Full Body: The ability to remove hair anywhere on the human body means that some people opt to forego the razor for good and have their arms, legs, chest, and back treated. Not all patients will choose to have all areas treated, but the options exist for those seeking to eliminate hair permanently.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Laser hair removal is a nearly painless experience, though patients who have sensitive skin or those undergoing lengthy treatment sessions may experience hot or tender skin that passes quickly. Laser hair removal is a completely safe and effective way of eliminating excess hair, and these are the most severe side effects you will expect.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted hair, though it may require several treatment sessions depending on the density of the hair and thickness of the treatment area. In some cases, hair may regrow but it will be thinner and more delicate than before and can be quickly removed with an additional treatment. Following the initial treatment period, touch-up treatments may be required every 6-12 months to handle regrowth.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Prices for laser hair removal vary but are generally in the range of $200-$300 per session. Multiple sessions may be required to completely treat the desired area. In most cases, 3-5 sessions will be necessary to eliminate hair in a target location. We offer package discounts to help reduce the cost of treatment.
