How long do the results of laser hair removal at The MedSpa at Hendrick last?
Laser hair removal can disable hair that is in the active growth cycle on the day of treatment. Dormant follicles are not active and, therefore, cannot be treated. Circumstances such as pregnancy, menopause, certain medications and hormonal conditions can trigger a dormant follicle to begin to grow. Most active hair follicles must be treated more than once. If new hair growth occurs in a treated area, it is often much lighter in color and considerably finer in texture because of the procedure. If this should happen, a touch-up treatment would be required.
Can tanned skin be treated?
Tanned skin can be unsafe to treat. Please inform us if you have been tanning or exposed to the sun within the last three weeks.
Can The MedSpa at Hendrick treat all skin colors for laser hair removal?
Yes, we use advanced lasers that are safe for all skin types. An individual consultation is necessary to determine your specific possibilities.
How long does the treatment take?
A treatment normally takes between 15 and 45 minutes, although time varies depending upon the area being treated.
How soon will I see results?
Typically, the hair that was treated will begin to work its way out of the follicle and will start to fall out between 10 to 14 days after the treatment.* All new clients will start with a series of at least 5 treatments in order to see optimal results.
Are there any potential side effects?
Side effects may include slight, temporary redness. Pigmentary changes of the skin, blisters and hotspots are rare, but occasionally occur.
How much does laser hair removal cost?
The cost of laser hair removal varies by the body area being treated, and every person’s skin requires a different number of treatments for the best results. Please contact us for a specific cost.
