Laser Hair Removal
Can I come in non-shaved to show you the areas I need treated?

Sessions and Appointments
How do I know how many sessions do I have left?
Do my sessions expire?

How long between each sessions do I book?
A: Laser for face – 4 weeks; torso 6 weeks; legs 8 weeks
How many sessions will it take to be done?
A: Everyone’s body is different and hormones control our hair growth so it’s hard to ever predict how many sessions someone will need to be compete done. The recommendation for everyone though is to start with 6 sessions on an areas if it’s not been treated before. After that we sell 3 pks and individual sessions.
Do you treat brows?
A: Generally we don’t because we do not get near the eye area with the laser.
My hair did not fall out, what happened?
A: Hair grows in cycles. Laser treatments weaken the blood flow to the hair follicle therefore it dies of gradually. Hair does not automatically fall out when lasered.
Can I stop laser and come back to it later?
A: Yes although consistency is key since we don’t want the hair to regain strength, you can stop treatments and pick them up later. You just might need to do extra touch ups if your hair growth regains strength.
Can I treat while being pregnant or breastfeeding?
A: It is not recommended and the RN is instructed to not treat.
Can you laser over my tattoo?
A: No the laser is designed to pick up pigment below the skin. A tattoo will be damaged if we laser over it.
What are my options for booking my next appointment?
Can I book with a specific nurse or choose the room/machine I want to be in?
A: We can always do our best to book you with your favorite nurse but we do not ever guarantee it since their schedules do change often. To best monitor who you are booked with, please log into your account online or via the Mindbody app. We do not offer choice of laser machine.
Can I split a package up with my friend/family member?
A: All clients must be booked individually and have their own packages for our booking system to properly check them out.
What if I don’t want the full Brazilian?
A: We offer treatments by the body part so anything inside the panty line is considered part of the Brazilian. You can leave behind anything you don’t want treated by not shaving it so the nurse knows where to stop.
Why do I need to talk to a doctor or nurse practitioner before treating?
A: In many states it is a legal requirement. If you are being asked to speak to a nurse or doctor before treatment it is because your state requires it.
What are the different size areas?
A: Small is generally lip, chin, sideburns, hands, feet, navel or breasts. Medium is full face, lower arms, shoulders, buttocks or underarms. Large is back, chest, full arms, Brazilian, upper leg, lower leg. Xtra Large is full back and shoulders, full chest and abs, full legs.
