Where can I have hair removed from?
Laser hair removal can be used on most parts of your body, except around the eyes. The most commonly-treated areas at Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center are:
- Back and chest
- Bikini area
- Arms and underarms
The laser therapy works on all skin types, from light to dark, and is effective on most hair colors and types, from fine, blonde hair to dark, thick hair.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of hair-removal treatments you will need depends on:
- The location of the hair
- The amount of hair you want removed
- The texture and thickness of your hair
Typically, treatments for smaller areas may take only minutes, while larger areas require more time, up to 30 minutes. For long-lasting results, you may need multiple treatments at the targeted area to ensure that all the hair follicles in the area are thoroughly treated. In between treatments, you don’t need to let the hair grow out, and you can groom as you normally do.
The technicians at Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center in Brooklyn, NYC will sit down with you to determine the number of treatments you will need based on the location and amount of your unwanted hair and get you started on a schedule.
Are there side effects and does hair removal hurt?
During the treatment, patients usually describe a snapping sensation at the site of the laser. Side effects, which are generally minor and usually clear up in a few days, include:
- Mild burning sensation that feels like a sunburn
- Some swelling
You’ll experience no downtime after a laser hair-removal treatment and you can get back to your daily activities immediately.
