Hair Removal FAQ’s

Who can get laser hair removal?

We treat men and women on all areas of the body. Our practitioners only use the best laser hair removal technology on the market, which allows us to safely treat all skin types.

Which areas can I get laser hair removal?

The most popular treatment areas are the legs, back, underarms, arms, chest, upper lip, neck, abdomen, bikini and Brazilian. However, thanks to the MeDioStar®, we can safely treat any area of the body!

What hair colors are you able to treat?

Laser Lounge treats most hair colors, however, some colors may be less responsive to treatment. The darker the hair, the higher the absorption rate and better the results. Hair that has less pigment, specifically white or gray hair, has a lower absorption rate and will be less responsive to the laser. Clients with lighter skin types (I-III) and darker hair types will experience more effective results due to the high contrast of melanin between their skin and hair.

How many treatments will I need for long-lasting results?

For permanent hair reduction, most clients will need at least 6 to 12 treatments spanned out across a 4 to 8 week period. This waiting time between treatments is necessary to target each hair follicle during the anagen phase (the active growing stage) when definite hair growth is noticeable.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Our MeDioStar® laser delivers pain-free hair removal thanks to its integrated 360º contact skin cooling system. This feature cools the skin efficiently prior to each treatment pulse, providing maximum comfort while protecting the skin from unwanted thermal injury.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Yes! Our MeDioStar® laser is FDA-cleared, and treatments are 100% noninvasive. Our laser technicians customize each treatment plan and the laser’s protocols based on your skin and hair type to produce great results while guaranteeing safety throughout each laser hair removal treatment.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects that clients may experience are temporary redness, itchiness, and swelling of the skin; however, these side effects typically subside within a few hours after treatment. Although there is no recovery time needed, we recommend applying aloe vera gel immediately after treatment for a soothing sensation.
