We are often asked what to expect during a typical laser hair removal session and how to prepare. There are certain steps you should take prior to your hair removal laser treatment session. It is recommended that you avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before your laser hair removal appointment as UV rays can make the procedure less effective or cause side effects such as burning or hyperpigmentation. You should also avoid other forms of hair removal such as waxing or plucking for four weeks prior to your hair removal laser treatment sessions as this can interfere with how well the laser targets the follicles and reduce the overall effectiveness.

During your laser hair removal appointment, one of our experienced technicians will first assess the area being treated and discuss the procedure. Depending on the size and location of the area being treated, it may be necessary to apply topical numbing cream prior to starting the procedure for increased comfort during treatment sessions. Your technician will then put on goggles and use the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser that emits pulses from focused laser beams onto targeted areas.

After the hair removal laser treatment process, you may experience some redness or swelling which typically subsides within several hours after the session. Most body areas require an average of eight sessions to achieve optimal results. Upon checkout, you will be scheduled for your next laser hair removal session.

Qualities of an Excellent Laser Hair Removal Provider

We are continuing our series of articles highlighting some of the qualities to look for when selecting a laser hair removal center. Our previous article covered the importance of working with a practitioner who is trained and experienced. We also explored how effective communication is essential to being able to deliver an overall positive laser hair removal experience. Today, we will look at two more aspects to consider when shopping for a laser hair removal center.

Exceptional Attention to Detail and Patience

Laser hair removal requires a great deal of patience and attention to detail. For instance, a qualified hair removal laser treatment specialist can identify the right laser wavelength and the duration needed to deliver optimal results for each client. They also conduct a thorough skin assessment before each laser hair removal session to identify any changes in the skin’s condition. A good laser hair removal specialist can customize treatment plans based on the skin type, hair texture, and color for each client.

Up-to-date Knowledge of Industry Regulations, Safety Protocols, and Best Practices

New regulations continuously emerge so a good hair removal laser treatment specialist will strive to remain updated on the latest industry trends. Ongoing training on safety and best practices is extremely important.

When it comes to permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers offers the best hair removal treatment in New York City and surrounding areas. We use the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser to perform all of our laser hair removal services. If you are considering hair removal laser treatment, we welcome the opportunity to work with you.

What to Look For in a Quality Laser Hair Removal Provider

Laser hair removal is a popular aesthetic treatment that has gained immense popularity in recent years. It is a non-invasive procedure that uses focused lasers to target hair follicles and destroy them, resulting in permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers offers hair removal laser treatment and is considered a premier laser hair removal center in New York City and surrounding areas. Effective hair removal laser treatment must be performed by the right specialist with a unique combination of qualities to deliver optimal results. Our next series of articles will explore the essential qualities to look for in a laser hair removal center.

Expertise

A critical aspect of a successful laser hair removal center is proper training and experience. Hair removal laser treatment involves the delivery of a concentrated laser that penetrates the skin to safely remove the hair and destroy the hair follicle. Therefore, it is imperative that the laser hair removal center you choose employs specialists who have undergone rigorous training to acquire skills in using such technology. A qualified practitioner will operate the laser within the specified parameters, wear and ask you to wear protective eye gear, and take precautions to eliminate exposure of any unnecessary body parts to the laser.

Communication

Effective communication is critical in any cosmetic or medical procedure, including laser hair removal. A specialist needs to establish a rapport with their clients and understand their unique needs and concerns. A good laser hair removal specialist should be patient, empathetic, and a good listener. They should be able to explain the procedure, the benefits, and any potential risks. Clear communication helps to manage your expectations, which is essential for your overall satisfaction.

Body Areas That Can Be Treated with Laser Hair Removal

We are concluding our series of articles highlighting some of the body areas that are commonly treated with laser hair removal. Our previous articles discussed the face, arms, legs, bikini area, back, belly, chest, and buttocks. Today, we will cover the head and full body hair removal.

Head

We often find that individuals with thinning hair or who are losing hair on their head want to take the step to have it permanently removed. Hair removal laser treatment saves them from having to continually shave the remaining hair on their head, which can be a burdensome and sometimes even painful process, especially when it results in skin irritation.

Full Body Hair Removal

We have many clients who want to remove the hair from their body all together. If you are going to pursue full body hair removal, then choosing the right laser hair removal center is important. Full body hair removal can be safely achieved using the CANDELA medical laser. The technicians at Manhattan Laser Centers are highly experienced in using this laser and offer the best hair removal treatment in New York City and surrounding areas.

If you are seeking permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is the premier laser hair removal center serving New York City and surrounding areas. Whether you want to treat a single area, larger area (i.e., full legs laser), or want full body hair removal, our experienced and caring laser hair removal technicians are ready to serve you.

We have been discussing the different body areas that can be treated with the laser hair removal process. Previous articles covered the face, arms, legs (including full legs laser), bikini area, back, and belly. Today, we will look at two more body areas commonly treated with laser hair removal.

Chest

The chest is a popular area for both hair reduction and permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers has performed laser hair removal on hundreds of men to help them achieve the look they desire.

Buttocks

Hair on the buttocks area can be embarrassing for both men and women. You don’t have to be self-conscious about it anymore. Laser hair removal on the buttocks area can be performed just below the waist to the line where the legs meet the buttocks.

If you are seeking permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers offers the best hair removal treatment in New York City and surrounding areas. All of our laser hair removal treatment services are performed using the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser. We serve both men and women and are proud to be a LGBTQ+ safe zone.

We are continuing our series of articles discussing the various body areas that are commonly treated with laser hair removal. If you are seeking permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers offers hair removal laser treatment for both men and women. Among the body areas we treat are the face and arms, as discussed in our previous article. Today, we will cover two more areas that can be treated with laser hair removal.

Legs

Laser hair removal can help reduce or eliminate excess leg hair quickly and safely with permanent results. Popular areas for treatment include calves, thighs, the back of the knees, and ankles. At Manhattan Laser Centers, we can either treat a single area or perform full legs laser. Laser hair removal technology has advanced to where even light colored hair like blonde and gray can be removed successfully. Previously, light haired individuals had to rely on traditional hair removal methods such as waxing and shaving which can involve ongoing pain and irritation.

Bikini Area

Laser hair removal for the bikini area is a popular choice among both women and men who want to achieve smooth skin without the hassle of regular shaving or waxing. Laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the bikini line, from just below the waistline to above the buttocks and even around the base of the pubic area if desired.

We are continuing our series of articles exploring some common areas that are treated with the laser hair removal process. Our previous articles covered face, arms, legs (including full legs laser), and the bikini area. Today, we will look at two more areas that are ideal for hair removal laser treatment.

Back

Laser hair removal is an excellent option for back hair because it offers permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser for all laser hair removal sessions, which is one reason why our treatments are so effective. Popular areas for laser hair removal on the back include between the shoulder blades, mid-back, and lower back depending on individual needs/preferences and extent of existing hair growth in these regions.

Belly

The belly is another area in both men and women that can be treated with laser hair removal. Men’s hair tends to be thicker so it may take more treatments to achieve permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers has worked with both men and women to remove hair safely and permanently from the belly area.

Manhattan Laser Centers is proud to offer the best hair removal treatment in New York City and surrounding areas. We treat all areas and can even perform full legs laser and full body hair removal.

We are beginning a new series of articles discussing the different body areas that are commonly treated with the laser hair removal process. When it comes to permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers offers arguably the best hair removal treatment of any laser hair removal center in New York City and surrounding areas. We perform laser hair removal services on both men and women and we’re LGBTQ+ friendly. Let’s take a look at some of the most common areas we treat:

Face

The face is a popular area for hair removal laser treatment. The procedure removes unwanted facial hair from any part of the face, including the upper lip, chin, jawline, sideburns, and cheeks.

Arms

Laser hair removal performed on arms offers permanent results for both men and women who have unwanted arm hair growth. Areas on the arm that can be treated include the forearms, upper arms, elbows, shoulders and underarms.

Our next article will highlight more common body areas that are treated with laser hair removal.

Hair removal laser treatment works by targeting individual hairs with a laser beam and destroying them at their root without damaging surrounding skin cells. It is important to note that laser hair removal should only be performed by a qualified professional to avoid skin damage and other risks associated with having laser hair removal treatment administered by an inexperienced practitioner. Manhattan Laser Centers employs qualified laser hair removal experts who perform each hair removal laser treatment using the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses the power of lasers to remove unwanted body hair. During hair removal laser treatment, a laser beam is directed at the targeted area of skin where it passes through the skin’s surface and targets the melanin in each individual hair follicle. The high energy light emitted by the laser heats up and damages each hair follicle, effectively disabling its ability to produce new hair. This process eliminates unwanted body hair without damaging any surrounding skin tissue. Depending on how many treatments are needed and how quickly your body responds to treatment, results may be seen after just one session. An average of eight laser hair removal sessions are recommended for optimal results.

When you receive hair removal laser treatment, a technician will use a handheld device to direct the laser over areas of unwanted body hair until all desired areas have been treated. Most patients report feeling minimal discomfort during treatment and some only experience mild redness or swelling afterwards, which typically subsides within 24 hours.

If you are seeking permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers delivers the best hair removal treatment in New York City and surrounding areas. Our experienced technicians use the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser to perform all laser hair removal services.

Additionally, not every laser hair removal center treats men, but at Manhattan Laser Centers, we see both men and women seeking hair removal laser treatment. We are also a LGBTQ+ safe zone.
