LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQS.
Laser hair removal has long been among the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments, with about 1.1 million procedures performed in this country every year. That’s not surprising, given that this simple treatment can totally replace the tedious task of having to shave, tweeze or wax unwanted hair on most parts of the body. During the procedure, the laser passes a beam of light energy through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat produced damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. Because laser hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, several treatment sessions are usually needed to provide significant hair reduction. Most patients require between 4 to 6 treatments.
Hair removal is effective on most body parts. Among those most frequently treated are the:
- Bikini area
- Face, especially the upper lip and chin
Treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Patients often liken the sensation to the feeling of a rubber band snap. At Ink Doubt we use the most advanced laser technology, called the Elite MPX, which is equipped with an integrated cooling system for maximum comfort. During treatment skin is continuous cooled with the flow of chilled air.
Each area of the body is usually completed within 30 minutes, making it easy to fit into most schedules, and even a lunch break. In addition, there is absolutely no downtime. Patients can return to their daily activities immediately following treatment.
For most patients, they are. The majority of our clients – between 70% and 90% – experience lasting hair reduction. Laser hair removal is less effective on lighter colors of hair, such as red, blond, and gray. Also hormonal changes might cause hair to return, which can be retreated.
