What You Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal Before Making an Appointment, Manhattan, New York

If you’ve ever considered laser hair removal, but weren’t sure if it was right for you, read on. There are many misconceptions surrounding laser hair removal, but Light Touch Laser Spa wants to ease your concerns by answering some commonly asked questions. From pre-removal preparation to post-removal care, Light Touch Laser Spa will walk you through the process to give you the best results quickly and safely.

Here are several common questions regarding laser hair removal:

  • How Does Laser Hair Removal Work? The technology works by reacting with the pigment of your hair. The energy of the laser is absorbed by the hair. It will then pass through the hair to the follicle and destroy it.
  • How Many Treatments Will I Need? Results vary from person to person. The most common answer is between six and eight treatments, although Light Touch Laser Spa will do its best to keep the number of treatments as low as possible.
  • How Much Hair Will Be Removed? Typically, between 85% and 95% of hair is permanently removed, though results do vary. If hair does come back, it is often softer and finer.
  • Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt? The discomfort of laser hair removal varies based on your pain tolerance. Most people describe the experience as a sensation that is similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin. Compared to other types of hair removal, like waxing, it's must less irritating. 

These questions and answers should help you decide if laser hair removal is right for you. If you’re still unsure and have more questions, check out Light Touch Laser Spa’s Frequently Asked Questions page online.
