Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light and destroy the hair. Premier’s GentleMax laser selectively targets the hairs leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Each pulse of the laser is a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time.
Your hair must have pigment to it. Blonde, gray or even red hair cannot be treated.
Our very special laser offers many laser settings. Which means we can treat all Fitzpatrick’s! So, from the fairest skin to the darkest skin, our GentleMax can safely and effectively treat your hair removal.
Patients typically receive 6-8 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. It is important to stay within this timeframe to properly target the hair.
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit tweezing and waxing for four weeks before treatment. Shaving is acceptable. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or tweezing.
Almost any area on the body can be treated! For pricing and a complete treatment plan, book your free consultation with one of our trained providers.

TIPS for a successful treatment:
1. Do not tan before you come for your treatment, this includes self tanner. The laser is attracted to color, so the ideal patient has light skin and dark hair. If you have a tan, it’s best to wait 4 weeks before starting treatment.
2. Try not to tweeze or wax hair before your visit. The hair must be intact for the treatment to be effective. Shaving and Nair is okay. In fact, 1-2 days of growth is perfect for your treatment day! You don’t want the hair to be too long or the laser wastes precious energy on hair outside of the follicle.
3. Let us know about any medications you are on that may make your skin photosensitive. Several antibiotics are on this list. Also, please let us know if you have taken the medication, Accutane, in the last 6 months.
4. Lastly, try not to be nervous! We are very understanding of your need for privacy and will do whatever you need to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
