Laser Hair Removal has been on our minds a lot lately so we spoke with Jessica Talley, Laser Specialist at Precision Laser in Easton, PA. She answered all the questions we have been dying to ask about this popular and permanent hair removal solution.
Is Laser hair removal safe?
Yes! Laser hair removal is safe when done in a professional setting by a certified Laser practitioner. Our Mediostar Laser is safe for all skin types. Laser parameters, aka the amount of Laser energy, is set custom for every client based on skin type, area of the body, hair thickness and density.
Can you get Laser hair removal on any part of your body?
For the most part! We can Laser any area as long as our laser handpiece and be pressed flush against the skin.
What is the most common areas women get done?
It would have be a tie between facial hair, usually upper lip and chin, and Brazilian.
Are there side effects to Laser hair removal?
Most clients leave their session with no side effects. Depending on your skins sensitivity you can be a little pink or flushed feeling in the treated area.
What is the difference between Laser hair removal and waxing?
Laser hair removal is permanent hair removal. Waxing is temporary hair removal.
How do you prepare for Laser hair removal? Should you shave?
We ask our clients to shave either the night before or the morning of their treatment. If you are someone who regularly waxes, it has to be at least 5 weeks since your last wax. Retin-A products must be stopped 2 weeks before a treatment. Accutane must be stopped 6 months prior to any treatments. Both Retin-A and Accutane cause the skin to be very light sensitive. We ask that you avoid exfoliating at least one week prior.
What does Laser hair removal feel like?
Most clients compare the sensation to a slight pinch or prick. Our handpiece has a built-in cooling plate that helps keep the discomfort to a minimum. Of course, certain areas are more sensitive than others. Treatments are very quick, so it is very tolerable.
What are your prices?
Prices for hair removal are by size, ranging from $50-$165 per session. By popular demand we recently added a full body deal as well. Any 4 or more areas in one session for $330 per session. We offer bundle packages as well! Bundles are paid up front and can save you 10-20%.
What other services do you offer at Precision Laser?
We also do tattoo removal, spider veins removal, sun spot removal, toe nail fungus removal, photo facials and Hollywood facials.
What is one thing that sets you apart from other laser aesthetic offices?
Definitely that we are family owned and operated. My father, mother, siblings and sisters in law are all involved. We do it all. We have no outside help. We are the practitioners and the behind the scenes crew. We started this business to help change lives and in turn we got to change our own lives. We are able to build our schedules around our families so that we don’t miss time with our kids. As mom’s we all know that’s what it comes down to at the end of the day-family.
