How many times have you thought to yourself, “OH NO! I forgot to shave!” Or gone to get a wax only to walk out wincing in pain?

If you are like many of us out there you continue to shave or wax because you don’t think there is any other option.You have heard of Laser Hair Removal but never considered it an option for you. With summer fast on it’s way, why not consider Laser Hair Removal?

Cost of Laser Hair Removal

The cost of Laser Hair Removal (LHR) is worth it in the end! After 4 years of buying razors you would have paid for LHR for that area. After only 2 years of waxing you would have paid for LHR for that area.

Commonly treated areas include: upper lip, chin, beard, back of neck, underarms, areola, bikini, legs, arms, back and abdomen. At Silk Touch, our laser systems allow us to treat the full body. 

What does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?

Some patients briefly experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation, similar to a quick, warm rubber band snap. The feeling is transient and there is not residual pain. If you are someone with an extremely low pain tolerance, or are worried about if it is going to hurt in a sensitive area, talk to your skin care professional about the possibility of using a topical anesthetic (numbing cream).

How Long Do Treatments Take?

Laser Hair Removal typically requires 6-8 treatments to get excellent long-term results. However, the exact number of treatments varies from person to person and touch up treatments may be needed as time goes on. LHR is a quick procedure that will fit into any hectic schedule. A small area such as facial hair and underarms can take as little as 5-15 minutes. More detailed areas such as the bikini take about 30 minutes and large areas, such as back or legs can take 45 minutes or more depending on size.
