Laser Hair Removal FAQ’s
What areas does laser hair removal treat?
Our laser technology can remove hair from almost anywhere on the body including faces, backs, chests, arms, underarms, bikini, and legs.
Am I a good candidate for this hair removal?
Laser hair removal can be safely used on all skin types from very light skin to very dark skin. It is most effective on individuals with dark hair. Candidates with very light or gray hair are not ideal. However, we will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors during your consultation.
Can this technology get rid of all of my unwanted hair?
Hair follicles are continually cycling through three phases: anagen or growth phase, catagen or transitional phase, and telogen or resting phase. Hair is most susceptible to this treatment while in the anagen phase. Because of this timing, it’s not possible for any laser treatment to achieve 100% hair removal, but it is possible to significantly reduce the number of growing hairs by as much as 85%. Multiple treatments can be administered for maximum results.
Is hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is permanent. After treatment, the hair follicles within the anagen phase that were damaged are permanently unable to produce new hairs, or can produce only very thin, tiny hairs that are virtually invisible.
What will the treatment feel like?
Most people feel only a slight momentary “snap” like a rubber band at the treatment site during the procedure.
How many treatments will I need?
Since your hair grows in 3 stages, several treatments are needed to affect all of the unwanted hair. The number of treatments can vary between individuals, depending on the amount of hair, the area to be treated, skin color, hair color and hair coarseness. Typically 4 – 6 treatments are needed but this will depend on a number of factors including your type of hair.
How far apart are treatment sessions?
It depends on which area is being treated. In general, face, underarms, arms, and bikini are about 4-6 weeks apart. Back, chest, and legs are about 8-10 weeks apart.

After the treatment, the skin is mildly red and swollen, and requires a few hours of cooling to reduce the treated inflammation. Some treated vessels look darker for a few days, then begin to fade and disappear. Generally, patients return to work that day or the next day. The spider veins slowly resolve over 4 weeks. One to three sessions, spaced four weeks apart, give best results.

There are several methods of tattoo removal available. Prior to laser tattoo removal, getting rid of unwanted ink was a difficult process. It typically involved aggressive exfoliation treatments, like strong chemical peels, dermabrasion and even surgical excision. However, these did not always produce favorable outcomes because it is difficult to target pigments that are deep in the skin.
With laser technology, it delivers energy to the skin via light waves. Depending on the frequency of the waves, the energy is absorbed by different pigment colors in the skin. This heats up the ink pigment, which causes it to break up into smaller particles, which then is gradually removed by the body’s lymphatic system over time. Typically, this will take 3-5 ten minute treatments and is a gradual process. Each treatment is spaced about 10 weeks apart for the best efficacy.

Tattoo Removal Side Effects
As with any laser treatment, there will be some side effects from the Rohrer Spectrum during tattoo removal. As the laser reaches the tattoo pigments and breaks it up, it should cause a reaction for your body’s immune system to clear it out. This may cause some itching and soreness in the area.
