Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Getting laser hair removal will vary in cost. It depends on the size of the treatment area and how many sessions you need for optimal results. To help you understand the benefits of laser hair removal, think of the energy and time you spend on shaving, waxing, or other methods. In comparison, laser hair removal is generally more cost-effective and will save you time and energy in the long-run. Our team creates a custom hair removal plan for you that outlines the number of appointments you need and prices.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
As an effective and safe treatment, laser hair removal offers long-lasting results. The advanced function of the Soprano ICE laser provides incredible outcomes for men and women. While men and women can enjoy laser hair removal benefits for a long time, laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent because the laser does not reach some hair. However, patients find that most of their hair is gone after finishing the recommended amount of treatment sessions. You can schedule additional appointments if you notice any new growth and stray hairs.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Follicles grow in cycles. While some hair follicles grow, others remain dormant. Because every hair follicle grows in different stages, patients need several treatments to target each strand during the growing phase. Completing your sessions over several weeks helps you attain better outcomes and smoother skin.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Your laser hair removal session can cause some discomfort, but you shouldn't experience severe symptoms. During the procedure, you will feel a slight snap as the laser targets and removes each hair follicle. The cooling technology of our Soprano ICE system ensures comfort while undergoing the treatment. However, your technician may apply a local anesthetic for additional ease. Patients say that laser hair removal is less painful than a regular waxing session.
