Things to remember when considering Laser Hair Removal

There are a few things to consider before getting laser treatments. One of the firsts is weather or not you are an ideal candidate.
One of the most important requirements is that the hair to be removed must be darker than the surrounding skin. The process usually does not work on people with blond or white hair.  Blonde and white hair contains a pigment called pheomelanin, which does not absorb laser energy as well as the pigment, called eumelanin, that is present in black or brown hair. Laser hair removal can be done on people with light skin, or dark skin.
Another thing to consider is the cost. Laser hair removal takes many sessions to have successful long-term results. Usually four sessions are recommended to begin with, and may cost from $500-$1500 a package.  The size of the area to be treated also affects the price. Large areas, like legs, cost more, while small areas, like upper lips, may be a bit less. The process of laser hair removal needs to be individualized for each patient.
Knowing who to get treatments from is important too. An inexperienced or unqualified person could end up doing more harm than good.  This is why we have brought Maria Byrne on staff.  She has been involved performing Laser therapy and skin treatments on a daily basis since 2004.  The expertise she brings, just adds to the professionalism you will find here at the Lakernick Health and Wellness Center.  639 E.
