Frequently Asked Questions
- Can you laser on Blonde hair?
- Laser is not color blind; therefore, the hair follicle needs to be darker then the skin color. If there is no pigment then we will have no target. This is why its best not to wait to long to decide on getting laser treatments because laser cannot treat grey hair.
- Can you laser after tanning?
- Yes, I would recommend you wait 48 hours after a tanning bed and a week after a vacation. However, generally it is better if you are less tanned you would see for effective results as the light peneratrates directly into the follicle instead of melanin and follicle.
- How many sessions do you need?
- 8 sessions. The first 3 sessions we recommend to treat every 4 weeks and the last 5 sessions we would recommend you treat every 6-8 weeks.
- Is there any down time?
- Most of our clients come during their lunch breaks with this being said there is slight redness but nothing you can cover with a little bit of make up or wait 20 minutes before going back to work.
- Is it permanent?
- Yes, laser gives between a 85-95% permanency. Results vary person to person depending on the individuals hormones, thyroid, medication, etc. Thick black hair gives the best results as thick hair absorbs the most heat therefore destroys the root quicker and more effectively.
- Are packages transferable?
- Yes, if you finish in less then 8 sessions then you can use the value of the remaining sessions on a different area. However, if you need more then 9 sessions then you will qualify for our touch up program. After 8 sessions you will only pay by time not by treatment. A 15 minute touch up is $30 dollars that for 1, 2, 3 areas or more as long as you received 8 sessions on that are you qualify!!
- Can I wax or shave between sessions?
- Waxing and tweezing is not advised as these methods remove the follicle which is the target. We need the target to give you the best results. You can however shave as many times as you like between treatments.
