Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Does Laser Hair Removal Treatment prevent hair to regrow?
A. There are three stages of hair growth (active, transition and resting), and the laser hair removal acts on active phase. As the name suggests, hair follicles are divided rapidly at this stage. We recommend doing a couple of treatment to damage the follicle, thus preventing the other phase to start. The procedure will prevent hair growth for a period, and there are some cases that after the 8th sessions, hair loss was achieved.
Q. How many sessions do I need to go through to achieve best results?
A. The treatment required varies per individuals. It is important to do the initial consultation for our staff to identify your skin type, the thickness of hairs, and areas to provide you the expected numbers of treatment. Moreover, we encourage our customer to complete the treatment up to 6-8 sessions and the maintenance period after the treatment session.
Q. Does all hair types can be removed?
A. We have two kinds of hair, terminal (thick) hair, and vellus (fine) hair. For laser hair removal, it is only effective to remove terminal hair. Though we always recommend doing the initial consultation, because there are instances that we encounter intermixes of hairs. We have different types of approach when it comes to hair removal that includes the elimination of fine hairs too.
Q. Is Laser Hair Removal treatment painful?
A. No. We use topical pain killers to sensitive areas of the skin. There are few reports that customers experienced mild discomfort after the first session. We can assure you that it can be prevented since we are using numbing cream.
Q. How would you compare Laser to Waxing?
A. Laser and Waxing are both excellent when it comes to hair removal. But most of the time, customer opt-in to use laser because waxing is agonizing, especially for first timers. Compared to the laser, waxing lasts up to 3 weeks while laser will slow down the hair growth, and prevent hair growth.

A. Burns on the skin after the session is because of improper handling of the device. For hypersensitive skin, there may be skin irritation but this is mild and typically disappears after a few minutes. We have topical solutions before and after each treatment.
Q. What are the cases of burns?
A. Burns is possible for mishandling the machine, but it may also be a result of the inaccurate assessment. The laser machine’s principle is to transmit intense heat to damage the follicle. Tanned skin absorbs heat which leads to irritation or burns. We recommend doing a 45-minute consultation thoroughly to identify the skin type, tone, sensitivity and thickness of hair.
