What to Expect From Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal with the Cynosure Elite Laser is a safe and permanent solution to hair removal. Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic laser treatments. The laser targets the hair follicles in the target area to remove hair precisely. The root of the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy due to its higher melanin, and the skin is left unharmed.
Laser hair removal is reliable and quick. With Cynosure Elite, we can treat the entire body, back, legs, arms, chest, and much of the face. The laser pulses are not painful, and generally patients only feel a slight tingling sensation. No anesthetic is needed, but a numbing gel may be applied before the treatment.
How Much Does Full Body Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Full body laser hair removal costs between $2500 and $3000 on average. The cost depends on the amount of hair on the body and how many treatment sessions are needed. If larger areas of the body such as the back do not require laser treatment, the cost is reduced significantly. It can also vary by the region where the treatment is performed. Full body treatment can take as many as six sessions with each session being four weeks apart.
Full body laser hair removal costs can be offset by the money saved on buying hair removal products. Laser hair removal patients will no longer spend money on razors, shave gel, waxes, electrolysis, and plucking. These costs can be exponential over a lifetime. Patients also save time and have peace of mind that no other treatment can provide.
Do Smaller Sections of the Body Cost Less?
Patients that are not interested in a full-body hair removal treatment can enjoy the treatment of a single area. Per session, laser hair removal costs between $60 and $300 per session. The cost depends on the area of the body and the amount of hair. The region where the treatment is performed can also influence the price of treatment. Complete hair removal from an area may still take between three and six treatments.
How Long Does a Treatment Take?
Smaller parts of the body such as the face can be completed in as little as 15 or 30 minutes per session. Larger areas of the body can take one hour per session. A full body hair removal session may be between two and three hours depending on the patient’s size, gender, and the amount of hair. A session is spaced at least four weeks apart. Patients may need as many as six sessions to complete the treatment.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Results from laser hair removal treatment are permanent. Hair growth is reduced by 70 to 90% after several treatments. The hair follicles that are treated no longer function. Results improve with each session until the treatment reaches optimal hair removal. Full body treatment results can be achieved in six to nine months with sessions spaced four to six weeks apart.
What Are the Advantages Over Traditional Hair Removal?
Traditional methods of hair removal such as shaving and waxing allow the hairs to grow back in days or weeks. Laser hair removal is permanent once patients finish the treatment. Patients will no longer need to wax or to shave for regular hair removal, saving time and money. Waxing and plucking can be painful and take time to perform regularly. Laser hair removal is painless, and patients will only feel a minor sensation.
Electrolysis shares some similarities with laser hair removal results but has several disadvantages. Electrolysis can take up to 30 sessions for permanent hair removal. Laser hair removal takes no more than eight sessions to complete treatment. Laser hair removal is painless and will not cause skin damage. Electrolysis can be painful and needles may cause scarring or infection in patients.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
We serve the Boston area with safe and effective hair removal solutions. Laser hair removal patients can be treated regardless of skin color and hair thickness. The Cynosure Elite Laser operates on multiple wavelengths to target the follicle without causing damage to the skin. We can treat patients of all ages and gender.
Laser hair removal works to remove unwanted hair on the entire body and face, excluding areas around the eyes. Blonde and gray hairs that are lighter may not respond well to the laser, so patients with lighter hair color should speak to a specialist about their options.
After the treatment, redness may occur. Ice or a cold compact can reduce this redness easily. Most patients return to work and their normal routine without interruption. Sun protection should be worn before and after the treatment.
