Unwanted facial and body hair is a very real concern for both men and women. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a long-lasting hair reduction solution that uses laser energy. The laser energy targets hair follicles with heat, which destroys the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. As a result, the hair follicle is no longer able to produce hair. This procedure does not guarantee permanent hair removal but will create a hair-free period for a range of several months up to a year or more, as well as a permanent reduction in the number of re-growing hairs.
At Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England, we use the G-Max laser for laser hair removal treatments. Laser hair removal is safe and effective for all skin types, and we even offer laser facial hair removal. This treatment can be used for the following areas:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
- And more
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost of your laser hair removal treatment at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals to determine the approach to your laser hair removal treatment that will work best for you.
Some patients may need multiple treatment sessions. We will consider these and other factors in order to provide you with the full cost of your treatment during your consultation. To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.
What is the Laser Hair Removal Treatment Like?
During the laser hair removal treatment, the G-Max laser device will be passed over the skin as it targets hair follicles. This treatment requires no anesthetic, and is a virtually painless process. The length of your treatment will depend on your hair type and the size of the area being treated. However, most treatments are completed within an hour.
What is Recovery Like Following Laser Hair Removal?
There is no downtime or recovery period following your laser hair removal treatment. You can return to work and other normal activities immediately following your appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
After laser hair removal, the treated hairs will gradually shed from the body. Since all hairs grow in different phases, it is unlikely that a full area of the body will be completely treated in a single session. For this reason, many patients will need multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired level of hair removal. After several treatments, patients can expect their results to be long-lasting and even permanent.
