With summer here is now the perfect time to start your laser hair reduction treatments. Well if you are getting your treatments done with a Cutera laser system then it can be. This FDA approved laser hair removal system is safe on all skin types and even those with tanned skin. The laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicles, where it is absorbed and destroyed. This treatment is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S.
What to Expect During Laser Hair Reduction?
The procedure times range between 10-60 minutes depending on the area being treated. We do offer clients the use of numbing cream if they are sensitive to pain, but most find the treatment relatively painless compared to waxing. Most clients need 6-8 sessions spaced approximately 4 weeks apart. The number of treatments needed is dependent on area being lasered, skin type, and hair thickness. During the consultation the nurse will be able to give you a more accurate timeline.
