Milan Laser Hair Removal: Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?
Thinking about getting laser hair removal? Even if you’re certain you want to ditch unwanted hair forever, it’s oh-so-important to study up to know if this hair removal method is right for you. To learn more, we asked Philadelphia’s laser hair removal experts, Milan Laser Hair Removal, the top five laser hair removal questions on everyone’s mind before they decide to embrace the stubble-free life.
“Does laser hair removal hurt?”
Lasers on your skin? Sounds scary, so we get the concern! But based on what we’ve heard from our clients, it doesn’t come close to the pain of waxing. Many say it stings like a rubber band snap, but only for a millisecond—the time it takes for the laser to zap your hair. Many lasers, such as the Candela GentleMaxPro we use at Milan Laser, even have built-in comfort features to minimize any potential discomfort. And if you want to make sure you have the most comfortable and effective laser hair removal treatments possible, make sure you go to a provider that has highly trained medical professionals operating the lasers, as Milan Laser does.
“How much does laser hair removal cost?”
Laser hair removal is surprisingly cost-effective! Here are the facts: the average person spends $3,800 in a lifetime on shaving essentials such as razors, creams, and exfoliators. But has anyone ever shaved and never had to again? Nope! The regrowth sometimes happens in just a day or two. With waxing, the average person spends $24,000 in a lifetime on salon appointments. Again, this is just for temporary results.
On the flipside: since the results of each treatment are permanent when performed properly, you can view the cost of laser hair removal as an investment rather than an expense. The average Milan Laser client is 95%+ hair-free in their treated areas within seven to 10 treatments. So, in the long run, you’re saving time and money when you go with laser hair removal.
Plus, many providers offer payment options to help make laser hair removal affordable for everyone. For example, at Milan Laser, we believe that everyone deserves to feel confident and beautiful at a price they can afford, so we offer laser hair removal payment plans with payments that can be as low as $29 a month.
“How permanent is laser hair removal?”
Good news for everyone who wants to quit shaving and waxing forever: your unwanted hair will be gone! Light from the laser targets and destroys the hair follicle, so it can never grow again. When laser hair removal is performed properly, the results of each treatment will be permanent—many people even see a noticeable difference after their very first treatment. However, not all hair follicles grow at the same pace, so multiple treatments are needed to ensure that each one is zapped. And because there must be pigment in the hair follicle, white hair or peach fuzz will not respond to laser hair removal. The average Milan Laser client usually needs seven to 10 treatments to be 95%+ hair-free.
That being said, new hair follicles can become active for a variety of reasons including age, hormones, and genetics, causing new hair to grow. So, if possible, try to choose a provider who offers unlimited treatments at an affordable price for those occasions. Some places like Milan Laser will guarantee your results for life, so you never have to worry about touch-up fees down the road.
“Is laser hair removal safe for all skin tones?”
Yes! A big yes with flashing lights and streamers! Laser hair removal is safe and effective for all skin tones, as long as the correct technology is used. For instance, Milan Laser uses the Candela GentleMax Pro, which contains two separate laser technologies: Nd: Yag and Alexandrite. The Alexandrite is used for lighter skin tones, while the Nd: Yag is best for deeper skin tones.
But it’s more than just having the right technology. For the safest laser hair removal treatments possible, you’ll want to select a provider who has experience treating all skin tones and knows how to tailor your treatments to your specific skin tone and hair type. That way they know exactly which laser to use and use the appropriate settings for each treatment.
As an example, our providers at Milan Laser have extensive experience with both Alexandrite and Nd: Yag laser technology and develop a custom treatment plan for each client. This allows us to safely and effectively treat all skin tones and make hair-free skin a reality for everyone.
“How do I choose a laser hair removal provider?”
Research, research, research! Laser hair removal, while completely safe and effective, is a big deal. And, as we mentioned, it’s an investment. Do your due diligence and find out which provider is going to be best for you. Consider what’s important to you: Who offers pricing plans to fit your budget? Who uses the right laser for your skin tone? What happens if I need touch-up treatments down the road? Who has great reviews? Laser hair removal is never a one-size-fits-all process, so the more in the know you are, the better experience you’ll have.
