Truth be told, human beings are hairy creatures, and sometimes that hair pops up in places we'd rather not have any at all. People have been shaving, waxing, and plucking out each obnoxious little hair one by one for centuries. Luckily, modern technology gifted us with laser hair removal around the mid-1990s.
Although it's been around now close to 30 years, people who've never tried it before are still a little apprehensive and full of questions. Here are the answers to 5 frequently asked questions (FAQ) we get at our spa all the time.
#1. How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt, Really?
The ouch factor keeps many people away, and everyone's pain tolerance is indeed different. But honey, if you can wax or pluck, you can totally handle laser hair removal. It's come a long way since the 90s and is no more painful than the snaps of tiny rubber bands. It's also completely safe; the US Food and Drug Administration approved it back in 1997.
At Avere Beauty, we use the latest technology that is cool to the touch with minimal pain.
#2. Does Laser Hair Removal Last Forever?
Laser hair removal works by quickly emitting pulses of light that destroy hair at the root and follicle. Sometimes it takes several treatments to make sure it's all gone. Many people get permanent results while others might need a touch up now and then.
#3. What Should I Do To Prep For My Laser Hair Removal Appointment?
Believe it or not, you are supposed to shave right before your laser hair removal appointment. Longer hairs can be more painful to remove. Shave up to 12 hours before you come in.
Things to avoid in the days right before your appointment:
Lotions or creams
Don't worry; our expert care team will give you directions every step of the way so that you have a perfect experience.
#4. How Much Will Laser Hair Removal Cost Me?
Prices for hair removal at Avere Beauty are very modest, and with a little planning, you can easily fit it into your budget. The fees range depending on what body part or parts you want done. For example, your underarms are $55 a session, while a full Brazilian is $129. Keep in mind; it may take several sessions to get the job done for good.
