When choosing a company to do your laser hair removal, you need to do more than just compare prices. The most important question is “what kind of laser they have.” Because there are many devices on the market that are not actually lasers at all they are flash lamps. These devices are perfect for smaller companies that don’t have the capitol to invest in some of the better devices like Cynosure Apogee ..

There is a bit of SCIENCE and DNA behind how many treatments and how often you will have to have them.
Here is the SCIENCE
The laser scans over the skin targeting pigmented hair. The resting hair will pop out of the skin, while the anagen “growing hair “is destroyed. This hair will stay in place until it releases and works its way to the surface (approx. 2-3 weeks). You will have barren period of no hair.
Dormant hair will return to the anagen phase and we can treat again. The amount of treatments needed depends on the area on the body we are treating.
DNA factors in with how many hairs you have in each follicle. Your genetics will play a role in the amount of cycles we will be treating. look around in your family tree. Did grandma have hair on her chin? Did Grandpa have a hairy back?
Medical conditions like Poly Cystic Ovary Disease or other hormonal imbalances can cause hair to grow excessively.
