full body hair removal

When it comes to hair removal, women often consider options such as waxing, depilation, laser hair removal or electrolysis.  The safest, most effective is laser hair removal performed with true medical lasers.  Manhattan Laser Centers is considered one of the best laser hair removal in NYC because we are qualified, experienced and use an FDA cleared medical laser.

Although we are experts in full body hair removal, most women prefer to focus on certain areas.  Permanent laser hair removal takes approximately 10 sessions but can vary depending on the amount and thickness of hair.  Let’s take a look at some popular laser hair removal areas for women:

Underarms

This includes the armpit and areas slightly above and below.

Buttocks

Permanently remove hair from the area from just below the waist to the line where the legs meet the buttocks.

Full Bikini

This is also referred to as Brazilian and includes the bikini line slightly over the underwear, full area of the buttocks and center of the buttocks.

Belly

We treat the mid line extending from the bikini area to just above the belly button.

Lower Legs

Includes the area from above the knee to the top of the ankle bone.

When deciding between waxing, depilation, laser hair removal or electrolysis consider whether you want the hair removal to be permanent.  Laser hair removal using a true medical laser is the only permanent solution.  Waxing and electrolysis are also very painful. Advanced laser technology is much more precise and less painful than in the early days of laser hair removal.  Today, most people describe feeling a series of tingling sensations as the laser works its magic.

Whether you need full body hair removal or just want to focus on a specific area, we can help!  If you want the best laser hair removal in NYC, then make an appointment with Manhattan Laser Centers today.

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective method to remove and/or reduce body hair.  In fact, using a true medical laser like we have at Manhattan Lasers Centers is arguably the safest method of hair removal.  When it comes to laser hair removal, New York City trusts us because we are experienced and truly care about our clients.

Let’s take a look at some common alternatives to laser hair removal to better understand why true medical lasers are one of the safest, most effective methods.

Shaving

Shaving is harsh on the skin and the hair starts to come back within hours.  When shaving a large area such as your back or chest, it will often itch and feel uncomfortable as it grows back.  Experts are also noticing that shaving is not as safe or sanitary as it increases the chances of infection, especially when re-using blades.  With laser hair removal, you do not need to worry about bacteria, bleeding or infection.  And, when the area is properly treated with a true medical laser, laser hair removal and/or reduction is permanent.

Waxing

Waxing is extremely painful and not permanent.  There is also a chance of cross-contamination of germs if the spatula is double-dipped.  We properly maintain and clean our medical lasers so laser hair removal with us is germ-free, safe and permanent.

Electrolysis

Electrolysis is invasive, painful, leaves marks on the skin, is not permanent and can cause infection if the equipment is not properly maintained.  Laser hair removal was developed to replace the “older” technology of electrolysis. Medical lasers are safer, faster and more efficient.

When it comes to laser hair removal, New York City residents count on Manhattan Laser Centers to provide them with the most advanced, experienced, safest and affordable services.  Don’t settle for a risky alternative.  Give us a call today!

Part 2

There are a lot of false rumors spreading about laser hair removal.  New York City has many providers, but few who use a true medical laser.  Problems can arise with methods that do not use true medical lasers.  Last month, we debunked the following myths about laser hair removal using true medical lasers:

  • You can only use laser hair removal on light skin – False
  • Laser hair removal is not for men – False
  • Laser hair removal is unsafe – False

This month we will expand on a few more laser hair removal myths.

Laser hair removal hurts

False.  Most clients report that laser hair removal feels like tiny pricks on the skin, but nothing that is painful.

Laser hair removal is expensive

False.  At Manhattan Laser Centers, it is not expensive for laser hair removal.  NYC does have providers who are not transparent with their pricing.   With us, you always know the costs up front.

All laser hair removal centers have the same technology

False.  In fact, when it comes to laser hair removal, New York City is full of providers who claim to use lasers but instead use intense pulsed light, an inferior technology.  At Manhattan Laser Centers, you can take comfort in knowing that we use true medical lasers.

When it comes to quality, transparency and experienced laser hair removal, NYC area residents need to look no further.  Schedule your appointment with Manhattan Laser Centers today!

There are many myths when it comes to laser hair removal. New York City residents count on Manhattan Laser Centers to be honest, open and transparent.  Let’s take a look at a few of the most common myths associated with laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal only works on light skin

False.  While it is true that intense pulsed light (IPL) is not ideal for dark skin tones, medical lasers can effectively and safely treat darker hair and skin. Beware of laser hair removal providers that claim to use lasers but really treat the area with IPL. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical lasers for all laser hair removal treatments.

Laser hair removal is primarily for women

False.  We have an excellent track record of treating both men and women!  If you happen to have thick hair it is not a problem because thicker hair actually responds much faster to medical laser treatments.  When it comes to laser hair removal, NYC men and women prefer Manhattan Laser Centers.  We are gender agnostic and an official LGBTQ friendly zone.

Laser hair removal is not safe

False.  Treatments performed by a qualified clinician using a true medical laser are very safe and effective.  Beware of laser hair removal providers that do not use true medical lasers or have untrained staff performing the treatments.

Next month, we will cover three more myths associated with laser hair removal.  NYC trusts Manhattan Laser Centers to provide the highest quality laser hair removal with true medical lasers.  Summer is just around the corner.  Give us a call to make your appointment today!

When it comes to laser hair removal in New York City, many providers have hidden fees.  They advertise one rate for laser hair removal in a certain area, then add fees.  At Manhattan Laser Centers, we deliver exceptionally high quality, full laser hair removal treatments that cover all necessary parts within the price we advertise.  No two people are alike, which is why all of our laser hair removal services take aesthetics and customization into consideration.

Laser hair removal prices are based on the size of the area.  In some cases, we do recommend additional treatments and will disclose this up front.  For instance, a gentleman with a lot of thick chest hair connected to his back hair may need laser hair removal on his back, sides and chest. Many laser hair removal centers will either charge extra for this without disclosing, or, they will intentionally not treat the sides and leave a straight line, which does not produce a desired outcome.

When it comes to laser hair removal on the shoulders, we evaluate how much of the upper arm should be included to make it look natural.  We also take into consideration how much of the arm should treated so that the client does not need to purchase a separate package to achieve the desired look. We also go the extra mile to make the hair fade in from the untreated portion. We do the same for the upper arms while treating the shoulders.

Our price lists are transparent and straightforward.  Best of all, we do not have the hidden fees of many laser hair removal providers in NYC.  Here is a breakdown of what is included with each body part:

  • Lower legs – includes knees and feet (if necessary)
  • Lower arms – includes hands
  • Full legs – includes thighs knees feet
  • Face – includes the front of the neck, cheeks, and any other area that may have hair (i.e. sideburns, forehead, etc.)
  • Chest – includes stomach and sides
  • Buttocks – includes the center (Brazilian)
  • Back and Shoulders – includes entire shoulders front and back (all the way to the chest hair), back of the neck, hairline, the sides and half of the upper arms. This is the only item men need to purchase to get rid of their back hair.

If you are looking for affordable, experienced, fair-priced laser hair removal, New York City residents need to look no further.  Contact Manhattan Laser Centers and make your appointment today!

Not all hair removal centers welcome men.  When it comes to laser hair removal, New York City residents know that we not only offer quality services, but we welcome everyone! We are gender agnostic and proud to serve both men and women.  And, we are an official LGBTQ safe zone as identified on Google.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common laser hair removal services requested by men:

Permanent Hair Removal

Although men’s hair tends to be thicker, we can perform permanent laser hair removal on men. In fact, it is easier to target coarse hair with the laser, therefore all men and women with thick hair will see an extremely dramatic reduction after the very first sessions. Men come to us to remove hair from different areas of the body, including face, neck, back, arms, legs, underarms, shoulders, ears, chest, legs, stomach, buttocks, and private areas

Hair Reduction

Sometimes men don’t want permanent hair removal, but instead prefer hair reduction.  We can reduce the amount of hair on just about any area of the body. Popular areas for hair reduction for men are chest, arms, legs, front of the neck and under arms.

Re-Design

We have men come to us wanting to re-design their body hair.  Just about anything is possible with our customized laser hair treatments and advanced medical laser technology.

Ingrown Hair

Laser hair removal is often prescribed by doctors for patients who have chronic in-grown hair issues.  We can permanently remove ingrown hair and razor bumps.

Many “laser” providers use pulsed light vs. lasers. Manhattan Laser Centers uses state-of the-art Candela medical lasers.  When looking for an experienced and qualified center for laser hair removal, NYC residents trust Manhattan Laser Centers.  Schedule your appointment today!

What is the Difference Between Electrolysis and Laser Hair Removal?

We are often asked about the difference between electrolysis and laser hair removal.  New York City is chock full of providers who claim that electrolysis is better than laser hair removal.  Here are a few facts so you can decide for yourself.

Electrolysis is an invasive way to perform hair removal. It involves sticking a needle into the skin and literally electrocuting the area in hopes of destroying a single hair follicle. It is meant for white hair that cannot be removed any other way and is not designed to be used on large skin surfaces.  Electrolysis is also not supposed to be performed on a regular basis due to the damage and marks it leaves on the skin.  In fact, those who choose electrolysis vs. laser hair removal must wait long periods (up to nine months depending on age) in between sessions to allow the skin to heal.

Laser hair removal, on the otherhand, is not only effective for hair removal, but it has other positive benefits, including skin rejuvenation and collagen boost.  In fact, we have clients who come to us specifically for those purposes.

When comparing electrolysis to laser hair removal, think about a bicycle vs. a car.  Electrolysis is an older technology that is not considered an alternative to laser hair removal.  On the contrary, laser is faster, more efficient and is actually meant to replace electrolysis.

If you need a reliable, replicable laser hair removal provider in New York City, look no further. When it comes to laser hair removal, NYC residents trust us to provide them with honest, transparent and quality services.  Give Manhattan Laser Centers a call today!

Ingrown hairs cause bumps and discoloration of the skin.  They can also be very painful.  Imagine if you could permanently get rid of pesky and unsightly ingrown hairs?  Well, you actually can with medical laser hair removal. New York City’s preferred laser hair center offers treatment for ingrown hairs.  In fact, Manhattan Laser Centers are the preferred provider for ingrown hair treatment and laser hair removal in NYC.

First, let’s discuss what actually happens with an ingrown hair. Ingrown hairs result when the hair grows back into the skin’s surface.  This often causes a bump and/or discoloration of the skin.  It can become infected and collect puss, and often results in a skin rash.  Ingrown hairs can occur anywhere on the body and are often caused by shaving or waxing.

Ingrown hairs can be treated by medical laser hair removal.  NYC offers many “hair removal” studios, but few actually use medical lasers.  It is important to use a true medical laser when treating ingrown hair.  Laser hair removal of the ingrown hair is often performed in a series of treatments much like traditional laser hair removal. If you have discoloration of the surrounding skin as a result of the ingrown hair, we can help resolve that as well.

If you want to permanently resolve your ingrown hair problem, the only effective way is through medical laser hair removal. NYC residents and anyone in surrounding areas who experience this problem can count on Manhattan Laser Centers to provide them with a permanent solution.  Don’t continue to live with ingrown hairs.  Our staff is highly experienced and our services are very affordable.

We are taking time to answer some of the most common questions people have about laser hair removal.  New York City has many providers to choose from and it is important to select one who is knowledgeable and experienced.  Manhattan Laser Centers uses true medical lasers for laser hair removal.  NYC practices that use intense pulsed light (IPL) often falsely claim to use medical lasers.

Let’s take a look at some common questions people have about laser hair removal:

What is the difference between laser hair removal and electrolysis?

Electrolysis treats one hair at a time.  Medical laser hair removal can treat multiple hairs with each laser pulse.  Electrolysis is usually pretty painful and takes much longer than medical laser hair removal.  NYC residents and those in surrounding areas choose Manhattan Laser Centers because we use true medical lasers.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal using true medical lasers is not only effective, but safe.  Manhattan Laser Centers is the preferred choice when seeking medical hair removal in New York City because we use state-of-the-art Candela medical lasers and our staff is highly qualified and experienced.

Does a medical laser emit dangerous radiation?

Absolutely not.  Medical lasers use non-ionizing light, which is completely safe. This should not be confused with ionizing radiation which is often used in x-rays.  Medical lasers do NOT use ionizing radiation.

How long will my laser hair removal session take?

This depends on the area being treated.  Smaller areas such as the lip or chin may take a few minutes.  Larger areas such as the chest or legs will take longer.  We can give you an accurate estimate of time once we evaluate your needs.
