FAQ

Am I eligible for laser hair removal?

You should not have laser hair removal if:
• You’re pregnant or breast feeding (wait 6 months after you stop breastfeeding)
• You’re on antibiotics (depending on medication you’ll have to wait 2 weeks to 6 months for treatment)
• You’ve been tanning or plan to tan/ have used tanning beds, or tanning sprays (depending on ease of tanning and skin color you’ll need to wait 2 to 4 weeks to get treatment)
You have grey our blond hair – laser treatments target the hair melanin; grey hair doesn’t have melanin to target and the laser is ineffective at removing grey or blond hair.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you may require will depend upon the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair’s growth cycle. This cycle is influenced by many factors: age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism. Some hair is more resilient and therefore more resistant to treatment.
At Blue in Green Center, we provide treatments in packages of six. Once the treatment regimen is complete, it may be necessary to come in for maintenance treatments, if there is regrowth.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Our Elite Plus laser hair removal machine, has an incorporated chilling system that makes laser hair removal a painless experience. Patients describe the treatment pulses as a heating sensation on the skin. You may experience some redness and swelling following the treatment that normally resolves in a short amount of time.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by slowing the growing capacity of hair follicles that are in the active growth cycle at time of treatment. Since hairs will enter their growth cycle at different times, several treatments are necessary to disable all of the follicles in a given area.

At Blue in Green Center, we employ several technologies for these treatments. The medical staff will determine which method is best suited for your skin type during an office consultation. All of our lasers are operated by licensed clinicians, in our friendly clinical environments. It is important to have laser hair removal at a responsible facility. We often have patients that come to us from other facilities, with burns or discoloration of the skin, because their hair removal wasn’t done appropriately. It is worth spending more to ensure your safety and the effectiveness of the treatments.
