Q: What are the risks associated with laser hair removal?
A: Many studies have been conducted since 1996 and it has been proven that the treatments pose no threat to one’s health. There is no correlation between laser hair removal and skin diseases or other health problems. However, there is a very rare risk of blistering or burning.
Q: How many sessions are necessary for the best results?
A: On average, 6 treatments are necessary for the laser hair removal treatments. However, in certain cases where the client has very dark skin and light hair or has/had been frequenting a tanning salon during the course of the treatments, there is a possibility that more treatments would be required to achieve the desired results. For the cosmetic injections and teeth whitening, clients should return about every 6 to 8 months.
Q: Are the treatments painful?
A: Laser hair removal is less painful and a lot more effective than electrolysis. The pain is usually referred to as at most a deep pinch. The cosmetic injections are performed with a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. The teeth whitening has no associated discomfort.
Q: Are there any contraindications?
A: Yes, those who are pregnant, taking photo-sensitive medication, have tattoos, or have recently tanned or received bronzage put themselves at a higher risk.
Q: Could there be changes in my pigmentation after a treatment?
A: Yes, but it is an extremely rare occurrence. There are, however, occasional temporary side-effects such as hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation.
