FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
The laser technology uses targeted photons of light which scatter beneath the skin’s surface to attract the hair follicle’s pigment. Dark pigment acts as ‘fuel’ and absorbs the light energy which is then converted into heat, in order to blaze the hair follicle. The result is hair growing back finer and lighter, gradually progressing until it is permanently removed. The thicker and darker the hair, the more pigment it will hold, giving you a higher likelihood of permanently removing the hair.
CAN LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREAT INGROWN HAIRS?
Even though there are many creams and lotions that claim to remove ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is by far the most effective treatment. The reason behind it is that in a laser treatment the follicle is being destroyed permanently.
And since most people that experience ingrown hairs also suffer from scarring, the sooner you treat the area, the less chance you have of developing any level of scarring.

At StudioMD we offer competitive prices and provide utmost quality in laser services and technology. The price range for laser hair removal NYC is in the $79 to $399 range, depending on the part of the body as well as the hair density.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS?
First and foremost, you should always shave the area to be treated, roughly 12 hours prior to your laser hair removal session. It is best to refrain from waxing or applying any depilatory creams between sessions.
And no fake tan and getting sunburnt up to two weeks before treatment. Since the removal works with a cosmetic laser that shoots a concentrated beam of light directly at the follicle’s pigment, it will also sizzle any pigment on your skin, including tanning products.
