FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is laser hair removal safe?
Yes, our team is competent and professional and we use appropriate equipment. The laser emits light energy that specifically targets the hair follicle. It removes hair while the surrounding skin remains unharmed. At Luxar Esthétique, we only use lasers approved by Health Canada.
How much does laser hair removal cost?
The cost of laser hair removal depends on the size of the area to be treated. Larger areas require more pulses and time to process. The price is also affected by the number of sessions needed to achieve the desired result. Certain areas of the body may take more treatments than others, as they may be more affected by hormonal changes.
Does laser hair removal work for everyone?
The best results for laser hair removal involve hair with pigment. Light blond and gray hairs are difficult to treat. This is because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle. If your hair is light in color, it will be more difficult for the laser to detect the pigment and effectively deactivate the hair follicle.
How long does a laser hair removal session last?
The duration of a laser hair removal session depends on the size of the area to be treated. An upper lip can take as little as 30 seconds, while a larger area like the legs can take 45-60 minutes to treat.
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?
The number of laser hair removal treatments you will need depends on the area being treated. Legs and armpits may require 6 treatments. Other more hormonal areas may require 8 treatments. They are usually spaced 4-8 weeks apart to effectively reduce hair growth.
