Below are a few questions our clients have asked us in the past about our treatments, please read through them as you maybe thinking of similar questions about our laser hair removal treatment.

 

Is it safe?

Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry's most well-known and researched uses of lasers. Pain-Free, Hair-Free's Soprano®XLi laser has provided permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.

 

How many treatments will I need?

There are a number of factors that can affect the success of a series of hair removal treatments, but generally, after each treatment, you'll see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that re-grow in the treatment area. Typically, it will require 6 treatments or more to permanently reduce the number of re-growing hairs by more than 80%, six months after the last treatment.

 

Will my hair ever grow back?

The short answer is no. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow new hair. However, there are invariably a few hair follicles that manage to partially escape the laser during each treatment. Some of these follicles may be only stunned and will need to be retreated.

 

Do I need to plan for time off, for the treatments?

No. Pain-Free, Hair-Free requires no "down time" or recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work or school immediately.

 

How do I know it won't hurt?

Most people find Pain-Free, Hair-Free very comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a "hot stone massage." If you find it otherwise, talk with your doctor or laser technician.

 

How much does it cost?

Pain-Free, Hair-Free treatment costs vary by location. Please schedule an appointment at our office and ask for a quotation. Compared with a lifetime of shaving, waxing or plucking, Pain-Free, Hair-Free can be a worthwhile investment in both time and money-savings.
