Hair - no matter how many times you shave, wax, or pluck, it will always come back. Hair may even be one of the most irritating things to deal with because of how often it grows, how tedious it is to remove, and how painful it can be to manage.


There are many different techniques out there to remove hair, but not all of them can be deemed successful. All the time spent on making yourself hairless, and the variety of products you have splurged on to rid yourself of hair temporarily just doesn’t seem worth it. For many, it is a constant, tiring cycle that we wish could end.


When people first hear about laser hair removal, it sounds like a dream come true. Who wouldn’t want to be smooth and hairless forever? Who out there doesn’t dream of not having to shave, or wax, or pluck facial hair, underarm hair, or leg hair? Laser hair removal sounds like a magical treatment, but oftentimes the price tag scares people away. Here are a few facts about laser hair removal, and why you should definitely consider it to save you time, money, and pain.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal at Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center in Brooklyn, NY uses light therapy to target and destroy hair follicles, preventing further growth, without affecting the surrounding skin or tissue. Laser hair removal often requires several treatments to ensure the best results.


Can laser hair removal be performed on anyone?

At Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center in Brooklyn, NY our machine, the Elite+® laser system, has two different settings that make the treatment suitable for ALL skin types.


Is laser hair removal painful?

Laser hair removal can be painful for some people, as everyone is different and has different reactions. While for some this treatment can be painless, others may feel a slight tingling sensation, and others may feel a more intense pain. All reactions are completely normal, and topical numbing ointments can be used to minimize pain felt during treatment. 


Will laser hair removal really remove all my hair, forever?

Treatment results vary for each person, but the general consensus is yes - laser hair removal can remove all hair, forever. Yes, that means you will never have to shave, or wax, or pluck, ever again.

The key to ensuring that laser hair removal works exactly how you hope it would is to ensure you are consistent and receive multiple treatments. You may not get the results you wanted (all your hair gone, for good) within one treatment, but you will definitely see a difference in hair growth. Although your hair will grow back after the first treatment, you will notice that it grows back slower, lighter, and thinner. 

Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center provides free consultations with our technicians who will advise you on how many sessions you will need to ensure your hair does not come back. The amount of treatments needed is based on the area being treated, thickness and color of hair, and the amount of hair you wish to have removed.

What are the side effects to laser hair removal?

The side effects to laser hair removal are minor. After treatment, you may see some redness (which is similar to if you were to wax/pluck) and there may be a temporary mild, tingling sensation of your skin.


Is laser hair removal worth the money?

When taking into account the money spent on shaving creams, razors, tweezers, and paying for hair removal treatments such as waxing or threading, laser hair removal is definitely worth the price tag. Hair removal treatments and supplies are costly over the course of years, while laser hair removal does not require constant purchases every month for years on end.


Although it is a bit more money, laser hair removal will save you time, energy, and pain.
