Most of us are familiar with the unending task of removing unwanted hair from our faces or bodies, along with the expense and discomfort. Laser hair removal puts an end to one of our most annoying personal care tasks and lets you spend less time removing hair and more time doing things you enjoy. 

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal acts on a pigment called melanin that gives hair and skin its color. Your hair grows from structures in the skin called hair follicles, each containing a hair root. This root contains melanin, which the laser targets. As the pigment absorbs laser energy, it damages the follicle and stops it from growing new hairs.

How Much is Laser Hair Removal?

The cost of laser hair removal varies widely depending on several factors. Each person’s treatment plan is unique. Your cost depends on:

  • Your provider’s level of skill and experience
  • Your location
  • The size of the treatment area
  • The number of areas being treated
  • The number of treatments needed

A laser hair removal treatment can cost anywhere from $200 to $500 or more, depending on the area of your body and your provider’s pricing. The total cost depends on how many treatments you will need. We can estimate the number of sessions required during your consultation, but each person’s body will respond differently to treatment. 

Because laser hair removal can cause side effects such as burns if administered by an unskilled provider, choosing an experienced laser hair removal expert like the ones at Juvanew will ensure a safe, effective treatment experience. 

Is There Any Downtime After Laser Hair Removal?

You can return to your usual activities immediately after laser hair removal. Although there is no downtime, your skin may look red and flushed for up to a day or two after treatment. Some people also experience minor swelling or sensitivity for a few days. Avoid using harsh or irritating products on the treated area. You should also avoid sun exposure as much as possible and wear sunscreen since your skin will be especially vulnerable to sun damage after laser treatments.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?

The number of sessions required for laser hair removal depends on the area since you have different hair thicknesses and textures on different parts of your body. Because the laser targets melanin, thicker and darker hairs are easier to treat and remove than finer, paler hairs. Most people need between six and eight treatments to achieve their desired results, but your needs will vary. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Most people with unwanted hair can benefit from this treatment. However, the best results will be seen in individuals with a stronger contrast between skin and hair color. Those with very pale blond, gray, or white hair may not have enough melanin pigment to target effectively. Good candidates should be healthy and have reasonable expectations.
