Laser Hair Removal

Everyone comes in different shapes and sizes with different hair, fine or coarse, thick or thin, so we book our removal appointments in 15-minute increments.  This also allows you to add areas within your time frame as you progress through your treatment.  If you have booked a 30 minutes session and it only takes 15 minutes then your appointment cost will be adjusted.

 

Come in for a complimentary consultation and our trained esthetician can review the area that you want your hair removed and the approximate amount of time it will take for treatment.  Then you will be booked for your treatment based on the time, and not on the body area.  Patch tests are available.  Payment plans are available for series purchases.

Facts on Laser Hair Removal

  1. The process may seem painful and intimidating but our technicians will walk you through everything! We go over medical history as well as concerns and can perform a patch test to show you how easy the treatment can be.

  2. You will not be hair-free after 1 session! The majority of people need between 6-8 to see great results!

  3. SPF must be worn during your treatment course in order to prevent pigmentation issues.

  4. If you are prone to ingrown hair laser makes the world of a difference and can reduce the severity.

  5. We recommend shaving 12-24 hours before your treatment, if there is hair we cannot perform the treatment.

  6. Follicle swelling is a normal part of laser hair removal, some people have a more intense reaction than others but it will reduce. Do not apply ice. You can apply hydrocortisone or Benadryl gel.

  7. You cannot tweeze, wax or epilate during the series, you can shave as much as you like.

  8. Tanning must be avoided, certain skincare ingredients should be avoided and any new medications or health conditions must be reported to the technician.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, under-arm, bikini line, and other areas.  The benefit of laser hair removal is precision.  Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.  Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time.  The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than ten minutes, and larger areas such as the back or legs may take over an hour.

 

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal 

Hair removal is more than just “zapping” unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires specialized training and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the technician performing the procedure, all our aestheticians at Five Senses have been certified in this procedure.  

Costs of Laser Hair Removal

How much you can expect to pay for laser hair removal depends largely on where the hair lies and how much you wish to have removed.  Hair removal from the underarms and chin generally costs less in comparison to hair removal from the back and legs. As a general rule, the larger the hair removal area, the greater the cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser Hair Removal

Do I need to shave if I am coming in for laser hair removal.


We encourage clients to shave before hand, and we always check the area to ensure that you haven't missed a spot. If you don't shave, please note that our laser sessions are time based and this may cause us to add extra time if we need to shave entire areas. Please avoid waxing, tweezing, epilating or using hair removal creams between treatments or 4 weeks prior.




Who can't get laser hair removal?


You are on your period, for brazilian You are using any Retinol products You are using Acne medication Accutane. You have any kind of sunburn, laser burn, pustules or breakouts on the area to be waxed. You are currently going through chemotherapy or radiation You are taking photosensitizing medication You have a history of keloid scarring You have epilepsy You are pregnant or breast feeding (we recommend waiting 6 months post breast feeding to have hormones settle down) You have grey or blonde hair (electrolysis is a better option) Tattoo in treatment area You’re under 18




What about care after laser hair removal?


We recommend using an exfoliant 24-48 hours post laser on areas neck down to prevent ingrowns. You can use light creams or serums to nourish and hydrate the skin. Post laser for 24-48 hours avoid the sun, hot tubs, pools, saunas, exercising, and applying deodorant.




How often do I need to come in to be effective?


It is recommended that you come in every 4 weeks.




My skin is quite dark, can I still get laser hair removal done?


Our Venus Epileve laser can treat ALL skin tones safely.




How many sessions will I require?


Laser hair removal can not be totally effective in one treatment as hair growth on your body is always in different stages. Most people need a minimum of 6 - 10 sessions depending on area and hair density.




Can I use numbing cream?


Numbing creams can sometimes thin the skin, and interfere with the process, so we ask you do not use these for safety concerns.




How does the Venus Epileve work?


Diode lasers are the gold standard of Laser Hair Removal as they can treat all skin types safely and effectively. Using 1 wavelength creates a unified energy output, the 800nm wavelength is optimal as it targets the melanin in the hair without harming surrounding tissue. A hand-held laser device sends out pulsed light onto the skin to seek out the dark pigment of the hair, and it impairs the hair follicle. Hair will begin to fall out within the next 10-14 days after the treatment. Hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding. Because all of the hair isn’t on the same stage at any given time, multiple treatments are needed to get the hair in the growth phase, for the laser to be most effective.




What do I need to do to prepare for Laser Hair Removal?


If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit tweezing, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That is because the laser targets the hair’s roots which are temporarily removed by waxing or tweezing. You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely. If you are planning on getting pregnant avoid getting laser hair removal.




Are there any side effects?


The discomfort level varies on the type of laser used, the person’s hair type, the body area getting treated, and one’s personal threshold. Getting a laser hair removal treatment can be compared to a rubber band snapping against the skin. The first session generally hurts the most and then subsides with further visits. People with very thick, dark hair often feel a bit more pain than those with thin hair because darker hair absorbs more of the laser light. However, after the second treatment, clients generally don’t feel as much pain.





We require 24 hours notice to cancel or change any single service appointment and 48 hours notice for multiple same-day service appointments.  If the required notice is not given, or the client does not show up for their appointment, the client may not be re-booked unless they prepay their appointments until Five Senses deems prepayment is not required.
