FAQ's / Tips & Tricks


What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. 

Does it hurt?

Our Cynosure laser has a cooling air stream that minimizes the feel of the laser on your skin to keep you comfortable throughout your entire treatment.

What do I need to do to prep for my appointment?

Shave all areas to be treated with a new razor 1-12 hours in advance of your appointment.  Please do not apply lotion, oils, deodorant, or any other topical treatments to the area.

No waxing, plucking, self-tanners, extreme sun exposure, retinol creams antibiotics or any photosensitive medications 2 weeks prior to your treatment. No Accutane 6 months prior to treatment.

Can I tan while being treated?

No.  In order for the laser treatment to be safe and effective you must minimize sun exposure for 2 weeks before your treatment.  This means wearing SPF sunscreen on areas that will be exposed to the sun and limiting exposure.  

How long does a treatment take?

Depending on the area(s) of treatment your visit can take as little as 5 minutes up to over an hour.  We'll let you know what to expect when you book!
