Usually about 6 treatments are sufficient. On the other hand, in some cases, if for example the client has very dark skin and light hair, or if the individual has been to a tanning salon during the treatment period, it may be necessary to add a few waxing sessions. in order to achieve the desired result. For cosmetic injections and teeth whitening, consider returning every 6 to 8 months.

Laser treatments are much less painful than usually expected. They can be uncomfortable at times but having the latest laser technologies on the market allows us to preform treatments in less time which makes it more comfortable for the patient. That being said, everyone is different and some patients may feel more than others.

Women who are pregnant, people taking photosensitive medication, or a recent intense tan (less than 3-4 weeks) are at risk for our laser treatments.
