LASER HAIR REMOVAL QUESTIONS & ANSWERS



Is it safe?: We use the patented Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ Soprano®XLI laser. It was approved by the FDA in 2005 and has provided permanent hair reduction for patients safely and successfully ever since. The Soprano®XLI laser significantly reduces the risk of hyper and hypo pigmentation as compared to other hair removal laser systems. Thus you can continue your laser hair removal treatments during summer months. Whether you're a man or woman, young or old, your treatment will be safe, gentle and effective.

How long does it take?: After each treatment, you will see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that regrow in the treatment area. Treatments are scheduled approximately 4-8 weeks apart. Typically, it will require 5 - 7 treatments to achieve desired results.  This will typically  vary based upon your hair type, skin type, and desired results.  Multiple sessions ensure that all the hairs are subjected to the laser treatment. You may shave in between treatments. However, waxing and plucking are discouraged.

What happens during a treatment?: You will be given eye protection similar to goggles worn when using a tanning bed. These goggles protect your eyes from accidental exposure to the laser. A clear gel is then applied to the treatment area, similar to gel used during an ultra sound treatment. Then we will rub the laser instrument around the treatment area for several minutes. When the treatment is complete, the clear gel is wiped away. Skin may be a little pink or sensative immediately after treatment. There is no "down-time" or recovery time except for staying out of the sun immediately after treatment. You can have a treatment and go back to your normal daily routine.

Will I feel anything?: Most patients experience a comfortable warming sensation during treatment, similar to receiving a hot stone massage. For very sensitive skin, a mild topical anesthetic applied prior to treatment can eliminate any discomfort.

Will my hair ever grow back?: No, your hair will not grow back. The Soprano®XL laser uses light to damage hair follicles. Once damaged, hair follicles can no longer grow hair. However, not all hair follicles are damaged in one treatment. It will require multiple treatments to permanently reduce hair growth in the treatment area.
