Laser Hair Removal VS Other Hair removal
Laser hair removal is a little more of an initial investment. However, it is much more cost effective than the usual shaving and waxing in the long term. Shaving and waxing cause hair to grow back thicker and faster. Laser hair removal makes your hair finer and slower hair regrowth. What if you already did shaving waxing before? Not a problem, laser hair removal is the only way to treat ingrown hair caused by shaving and waxing. Click compare to learn more about the benefits of laser hair removal over other hair removals.
Can All Areas Be Treated?
Eyebrows are not treatable because they are too closed to your eyes. We treat all other areas including eyebrow center. Areas with tattoos will be avoided during treatment.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
It is permanent hair reduction. For some people can reach close to 99% hair reduction. Usually, you will have up to 85% hair reduction after a series of recommended sessions. After that, we offer touch ups. Hormonal changes can affect future hair growth.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
For body area, most people need at least 6 treatments. It depends on how much hair do you have and if you have in-grown hair. The sessions are spaced 5-6 weeks apart depending on the area and individual.
For face area, most people need at least 8 treatments. If you or your family have experienced hormonal problems, you will need more sessions to reach an ideal result. The sessions are spaced 4-5 weeks apart depending on the area and individual.
For best results, laser hair removal treatments must be scheduled no more than 5-6 weeks apart. If you do not adhere to the recommended schedule, it will affect the long term results negatively.
Six sessions will not remove all of the hair, and additional sessions may be required depending on the individual.
Am I a candidate to do laser hair removal?
Grey, white hair cannot be treated with the laser, and only dark hair will have good results. Very fine hair will not be treated (peach fuzz). In many cases, this can result in stimulating more hair growth. Results depend on the color and thickness of your hair, as well as your skin tone. We treat all skin tones.
Why Are My Results Different From Others?
Results and amount of sessions depend on: The contrast of your skin and hair color; Your ethnic background and family history. Hormonal level for areas.
Does It Hurt?
Different machines will give you different level of pain and different effects. The high power laser machines give you better effects but it is painful without cooling. When the client cannot bear the pain during the treatment, all of what a technician can do is reduce the power of the laser, which will influence the results. It ease the pain but reduce effectiveness.
At Satori Laser, we only use high power CANDELA laser machines, equipped with the cryogen cooling system which lowers the temperature to -358F. It feels like rubber band during treatments. If you need to use numbing cream, please consult with a doctor or pharmacies for the best type of numbing cream that’s suitable for your own needs.
