Nothing keeps you looking sleek and beautiful like laser hair removal. But you want to know what to expect if you’re new to it.
Fortunately, many clients have written Web reviews of this service, leaving helpful answers to common questions. Here’s a rundown of what they had to say.
Q. Does laser hair removal hurt?
The sensation they reported is anywhere from mild to moderate discomfort — a feeling of prickling and burning as the pulsing laser passes over the treated site. Some clients have related that they felt as if a rubber band had been snapped against their skin. The sensation doesn’t last long, and you may be offered a numbing agent before your session begins.
Q. Does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal has been found to work on most people, and it reduces hair permanently by up to 90% after four to six sessions. Any hair that may grow back is usually lighter and finer. Most clients require a few touch-up treatments per year for best ongoing results.
Q. Which laser is right for me?
The many lasers on the market are specific to certain skin tones and hair types. Trained technicians will evaluate your skin tone and hair type through a detailed consultation and choose the most effective laser for your needs.
Q. Were the results what you expected?
As with any cosmetic procedure, individual results may vary. At the start of your first laser hair removal session, your technician will discuss with you three things:
- The type of laser she’ll use because of your skin tone and hair type
- The number of sessions it may take to remove the hair
- The results you may expect to see
Realistic expectations are key to your satisfaction.
Q. Were the results worth it?
This question considers the overall laser hair removal procedure and results. Many reviews focus on the client’s overall impression of laser hair removal, how it worked, the results, and the client’s level of satisfaction.
Laser hair removal reviews can be found on providers’ websites and on websites unaffiliated with a specific doctor, spa, or facility. Reviews and testimonials from actual clients can give you a better idea of what to expect from your first laser hair removal session.
