FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser Hair Removal is a safe and permanent solution to eliminate undesired hair. More and more, men with excessive body hair are seeking effective, long-lasting hair removal solutions whether for aesthetics, comfort or performance. Male patients usually seek treatment for large areas of the body such as the back, chest and legs with thick or excessive hair being a source of embarrassment or discomfort. In addition to eliminating the need to shave every day, laser hair removal prevents irritation and the development of folliculitis, a condition often experienced by men where one or more hair follicles become inflamed.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Several factors play a role in your treatment plan and the amount of sessions you may need. They can include, the number of areas treated, the amount of hair on each area, medications, hormones, tolerance to light, and treatment consistency. As a reference, somewhere between 6-12 sessions is a good guide to work with. Your treatments will likely be spaced from 4 weeks in the beginning, gradually increasing to 8 weeks apart. Also, keep in mind that yearly to bi-yearly top up treatments are recommended.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR ME?
Even though Laser Hair Removal is very effective, it is not always the right treatment for every patient. Most laser technology is only effective for those who have light skin and dark hair. Exceptionally, StudioMD’s Alexandrite or YAG laser can treat almost all skin types and complexions, including darker skin tones. It can be used to treat any part of the body, and is a great way to instil confidence so you can enjoy a carefree summer. Come in for a complimentary consultation and let’s find out what the treatment can do for you.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?
One of the best advantages of laser hair removal is the treatment is almost painless, especially when compared with waxing. In some particularly sensitive areas, like the upper lip, the procedure can be quite unpleasant, like a rubber band snapping onto your skin. But each pulse lasts less than an instant, making it more like a slight tingling sensation rather than a painful experience.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser removal was designed to eliminate hair in follicles during the Anagen (growth) Phase. During this stage the hair is most receptive to the laser as it is rich in protein, keratinized cells and melanin. Typically, you can expect that 85% of our hair in the growth stage will be removed by the laser. But the actual amount of time the hair follicle stays in the Anagen phase is determined by your own genetics.
HOW MUCH DOES THE TREATMENT COST?
The final cost of your treatment will depend on how many areas are being addressed and how well your body responds to the laser. StudioMD New Jersey offers complimentary consultations to set up a treatment plan that takes into consideration your goals and your budget. A quote will always be given at this initial consultation, but you can expect to pay around $79+ per treatment session.
