Is Laser Hair Removal Right For You? 7 Ways To Find Out

1) If you can’t afford laser hair removal, don’t have it.

You can assume that each treatment session will cost you between $200 and $400, depending on which area is getting the treatment, and you can also expect that you will need regular treatment sessions, often for several months. All of this adds up, although many people tend to overlook the total cost of laser skin care.

If you opt for the full permanent hair removal treatment process, you do have to accept the fact that it will cost you several thousand dollars. Of course, you have to be able to afford to pay that comfortably, and although most people benefit from the treatment, you should also be prepared for it not to work for you, regardless of how much you paid.

You may end up paying even more in the long run if you take advantage of the credit option that is offered by some clinics. You may decide that a more sensible solution is to have the full treatment at some point in the future once you have saved up the money needed to cover the total cost, and in the meantime look at temporary hair removal options.

2) If you don’t trust your clinic, don’t get laser hair removal there.

Finding a reputable and experienced clinic is a must, and that may mean doing some preliminary research or asking others for recommendations. The truth is that anyone can claim that they are qualified and able to carry out laser hair removal, as the procedure is not regulated in many countries, including the US.

Serious side effects such as skin burns can be a result of having the procedure carried out by someone who is unlicensed and inexperienced. However, laser hair removal is entirely safe when carried out correctly and with the right settings.

3) If you experience pressure tactics at your clinic, you may not want to have laser hair removal there.

It’s often all about making a sale and getting another customer, and many clinics resort to high-pressure selling. You may be offered a limited time discount for the service, although if you aren’t given any time to think about it and are expected to say yes immediately, you may want to avoid that facility.

Of course, it isn’t ethical for a clinic to pressure potential clients in this way, and considering the money you are spending and the effect the procedure can have, you should steer well clear of these tactics.

4) If you have a tattoo in the treatment area, you should not have laser hair treatment carried out.

Nasty burns and in some cases permanent scarring can result from having treatment if you have a tattoo in that area. That’s because the power of the laser is absorbed more by the tattoo’s dark pigment than by the surrounding skin.

5) If the FDA hasn’t approved the laser, you shouldn’t have the procedure carried out.

Your practitioner will be able to advise you the type of laser that is being used and whether the FDA database has it in their records. A laser that isn’t approved by the FDA isn’t safe and shouldn’t be used, although unfortunately there are many out there.

6) If your skin is dark and the laser isn’t suitable, don’t proceed with the treatment.

Some lasers aren’t compatible with dark skin color, including yours if you score higher than four on what is known as the Fitzpatrick scale.

7) If you can’t have a patch test, you shouldn’t have laser skincare or hair removal.

Although the procedure is perfectly safe, some people experience a severe reaction to the laser being used. To prevent the possibility of that happening, you should ask for the patch test carried our beforehand, in which a small patch test is carried out on your body.

Don’t proceed with treatment at any clinic that refuses to provide a patch test for whatever reason. A reputable facility is used for clients asking for that and will provide one, allowing you to make the best possible decision.

8) If you want to be 100 percent sure of your results before the treatment, don’t have laser hair removal.

Some people don’t respond well to the treatment, despite the effectiveness of this type of therapy having been proven in many clinical tests.

However, despite all the research, it still isn’t fully understood why sometimes even the ideal candidates don’t respond well – those with very light skin and dark, coarse hair. You should always assume you are taking a calculated risk, and gathering all the information you can to make your decision better is a must.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment: Is it Right For You?

There has been an upswing in individuals seeking laser hair removal; therefore, entrepreneurs and providers of aesthetic products have naturally been taking an interest in and querying about the favored treatment. Below is a master list of frequently asked questions about laser hair removal: all the knowledge you need in one place:

Why is laser hair removal so popular with patients?

In Canada, unwanted hair, whether it is on the hands, upper lip, bikini area, feet or arms, back, and legs, is a significant source of cosmetic torment. Many individuals are tired of repeatedly removing unwanted hair through painful and tedious techniques like shaving, tweezing and waxing. In response, there has been a high demand for this type of hair reduction.

Who is laser hair removal recommended for?

Both men and women can have this procedure done. The majority of women want to remove hair from their legs, bikini area, and underarms. Men are typically more interested in reducing hair on their necks and backs.

When they were initially introduced, the procedure carried out by the hair removal lasers was intended for patients with dark hairs and light skin. However, revolutionary technologies effectively and safely remove hair from patients of all hair colors and skin types.

Explain the standard procedure?

During treatment, bright flashes of light are emitted, via a light-based system, into the skin at the site of the unwanted hair. The light energy is absorbed by the hair follicles, it heats up and becomes damaged. Each light energy pulse takes mere seconds and simultaneously treats many hairs; this makes it quick and easy to perform the procedure. Treatments typically last between 10 and 30 minutes, based on the size of the treatment area. Larger treatment heads are featured on hair removal systems for quicker treatment sessions.

Hair grows in different phases, and as such, multiple treatments are required to target the hair follicles during the growth stage. The majority of patients need between 4 and six treatments for long-lasting or permanent results. Over time, touch-ups could also be required. Following the first treatment, patients should see results in the form of smoother skin and hairs growing back weaker and more beautiful. The results will become more and more impressive and noticeable with each treatment until the destruction of all follicles is achieved, stopping hair growth.

What is the science behind it? How does it work?

Laser hair removal functions to destroy the hair follicle root. During treatment, light flashes are spread over the skin and immersed in the hair follicle by the melanin. The laser energy heats up and causes damage to the hair follicle, effectively stunting the cells responsible for stimulating regrowth. It should be noted that hair growth takes place in a cycle and effective hair removal is only possible during its active growth stage.

Each hair experiences three growth stages: the anagen, the catagen, and the telogen phase. The anagen stage or the growth stage is the phase in which the hair continues to grow actively. The catagen phase or the transitional phase occurs when there is a shrinking and detachment of the hair follicle from the papilla. The telogen phase or the resting phase involves the release and falling out of the old hair. As old hair sheds, there is reattachment of the hair follicle to the papilla, and the anagen phase is re-entered as the cycle is repeated.

Each body hair can be at a different growth cycle stage at any point in time. Therefore, multiple laser treatments are essential to target the hair in its anagen phase and to target numerous hair follicles in their growth stage.

What type of results can be expected by patients?

For desired results, the majority of patients need between 5 and eight treatments spread out over 4 to 6 weeks. Technology enables almost every patient, regardless of hair or skin type, to receive long-term results for removing unwanted hair. Lighter-haired patients could require more treatments; however, they will still get useful results after the treatments end.

For permanent results, the majority of patients need between 6 and 12 treatments. To target follicles during the growth stage, the procedures are spread out 4 to 6 weeks apart. Irrespective of the technology used, results will be experienced at different levels by patients, based on their hair color and skin type.

What’s the cost of treatments?

Pricing for hair removal varies according to the size of the treatment area, laser hair clinic, states and competitive markets. Based on a 2017 Beauty Pros cosmetology blog, the United States national average price range was High $900, Average $329 and Low $60.

The prices at the majority of laser hair clinic are based on the size of the treatment area. Additionally, laser hair clinic offers individual bundles and treatment packages to assist patients in saving more on several treatment plans and receiving treatment on more than one parts of the body.

Can patients save money on laser hair removal?

Patients can save money, time and pain with laser hair removal. A recent Harper’s Bazaar article compared the price of 3 hair removal sessions to 35 years of waxing continuously. The outcomes showed that laser hair removal cost less than a third of the amount of waxing.

What kinds of light-based hair removal are available?

The primary technologies used in permanent hair reduction are IPL (intense pulsed light) and diode (lasers) systems.

What is the distinction between IPL and laser treatment?

Instead of a single specific wavelength that targets melanin in the hair, a broad spectrum of light is produced by IPL; between 550 nm and 1200 nm. Lasers generate a concentrated light wavelength to target melanin in hair specifically. Typically, diode technology uses a wavelength between 800 nm and 810 nm. Otherwise, they both efficiently target hair to get optimal outcomes, and they work in the same way necessarily.
