Additional Facts About Hair Removal Laser Treatment

We are continuing our series of articles discussing some facts about hair removal laser treatment. Our previous article covered how laser hair removal is more affordable than you think and the fact that when a laser hair removal center such as Manhattan Laser Centers uses a true medical laser, all types of hair can be treated. Today, we will cover two more facts about laser hair removal.

The Laser Hair Removal Process Is Actually Pleasant

People sometimes are apprehensive about coming to a laser hair removal center because they think that the process will be uncomfortable or painful. If you have participated in other types of hair removal methods such as waxing or electrolysis, these are very painful!  Hair removal laser treatment using a true medical laser does not hurt. At worst, it may feel like tiny little prickles on your skin.  Our hair removal laser treatment rooms are very comfortable and designed to ensure you have a pleasant experience.

Appointments for Hair Removal Laser Treatment Often Last Less Than 30 Minutes

You do not need to worry about taking several hours out of your day for your laser hair removal appointment.  While treatment times vary depending on the area being treated (i.e. full legs laser and full body hair removal will take longer than treating a single are like the chin) in most cases you will be in and out in less than 30 minutes. Manhattan Laser Centers proudly employs the best hair removal treatment technicians who are gentle and efficient at what they do.

If you are looking for permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is the preferred choice for discerning individuals seeking a comfortable, effective, and affordable solution. Whether you just want us to treat a single area or are planning to go all out with full legs laser or full body hair removal, we are here for you. Give us a call to schedule an appointment today.

 

Facts to Know About Laser Hair Removal

When it comes to laser hair removal, there are often some fallacies that keep people from pursuing the option for permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers is different from the typical laser hair removal center and we are dedicating our next series of articles to discussing some of the facts about hair removal laser treatment. Let’s get started:

Hair Removal Laser Treatment is More Affordable Than You Think

One stumbling block some people have about contacting a laser hair removal center is that they think that hair removal laser treatment is going to be very expensive.  While this is the case with some laser hair removal centers, it is not the case with us.  If you are considering permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is not only affordable, but our prices are transparent and there are no hidden costs.

All Types of Hair Can Be Treated

Many people believe that only thinner, dark hair can be treated.  When it comes to permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is one of the few that can treat all types of hair. A typical laser hair removal center will use intense pulsed light (IPL) which is not a true laser. However, we use the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser, which is extremely effective in laser hair removal of all types of hair.

Our next article will cover more facts to know about hair removal laser treatment.

If you are looking for the best hair removal treatment, look no further.  Manhattan Laser Centers is the preferred laser hair removal center serving all of New York City and surrounding areas.  Whether you need a single area treated or a larger area (i.e. full legs laser, full body hair removal) your friends at Manhattan Laser Centers are here for you.

Laser Hair Removal

We are continuing our series on hair removal laser treatment for men.  We have been discussing the top areas men consider for permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers treats men and can perform laser hair removal on single areas or full body hair removal if desired. Our previous article discussed laser hair removal on the back, chest, and stomach.  Today, we will look at three more areas that are popular for men.

Buttocks

Let’s face it, no one wants hair on their bottom. The buttocks is another area that is popular for laser hair removal for men and can often be performed in 8-10 treatments.

Arms

Hairy arms can cause some men to feel self-conscious. We can perform either full laser hair removal or hair reduction on both the upper and lower arms.

Full Legs Laser

Full legs laser includes the area from the top of the leg to the ankle. Most men prefer complete laser hair removal but we can also perform hair reduction on the legs as well.

Not every laser hair removal center caters to men in the same way we do. This is why when it comes to permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is the choice for men throughout New York City and surrounding areas. Our experienced and dedicated laser hair removal specialists deliver the best hair removal treatment services using the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser.  Whether you want us to treat a single area or perform full body hair removal, we can help.  Give us a call to schedule your appointment today!

hair removal laser treatment

Are you a man seeking permanent hair removal?  Manhattan Laser Centers is proud to offer hair removal laser treatment services for men.  We understand some men are self- conscious about their body hair.  Thick body hair or body hair on certain areas may be something you wish to address. Our next series of articles will cover popular laser hair removal areas for men.

Back

Men with hair on their back tend to be self-conscious about going to the beach or doing anything without wearing a shirt. Hair removal laser treatment on the back can help give men confidence to take off their shirts and not worry about being stared at while they are at a waterpark with their families or laying on the beach getting a tan.

Chest

We have worked with many men to either get rid of or reduce their chest hair.  Some men even want laser hair removal to reshape the hair on their chest.

Stomach

We can perform either laser hair removal or reduction on the stomach area.

Hair removal laser treatment on the stomach involves also treating surrounding areas, making sure it looks clean and natural.

If you want the best hair removal treatment for men, look no further. We use the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser which is safe and effective for permanent hair removal.  Manhattan Laser Centers treats many men, whether they want laser hair removal on a single area or full body hair removal. Don’t settle for an inferior laser hair removal center that will leave you dissatisfied.  Your friends at Manhattan Laser Centers have the experience and knowledge to provide safe and effective hair removal laser treatment services.  Give us a call to schedule an appointment today.

Why Does Laser Hair Removal Require Multiple Treatments?

A common myth we often hear is that laser hair removal can be completed with one treatment.  While a single treatment will begin the process, it does take several treatments for permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser, which is extremely effective.  Many laser hair removal centers do not use an actual laser and instead use intense pulsed light (IPL) which is not as effective as medical lasers and does not permanently remove hair.

Medical lasers provide the best hair removal treatment because they zero in on the actual hair follicles and shaft, destroying them without damaging the skin. It generally takes multiple laser hair removal treatments for this to occur. The exact number of hair removal laser treatments required is dependent on several factors including the area(s) being treated and thickness of the hair.

Looking for permanent hair removal? Manhattan Laser Centers is considered the premier laser hair removal center serving Manhattan and surrounding areas.

Inexperienced Laser Hair Removal

We are continuing our series on the pitfalls of using an inexperienced laser hair removal provider. Our previous series covered how burns, blistering, and unwanted skin changes can occur.  Today, we will look at three more reasons to avoid a laser hair removal center that does not have a proven track record and employs inexperienced technicians.

Infections

Infections are common among inexperienced laser hair removal center providers.  Infected hair follicles are especially unsightly and can even be painful.  Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, permanent discoloring or even scarring can occur as a result of an infection.

Scarring

Scarring is another issue that can occur as a result of an inexperienced laser hair removal technician.  You want to use a hair removal laser treatment provider that has comprehensive knowledge of the biology of the skin and understands how to properly use the laser to perform your laser hair removal treatment.

Ineffective

When hair removal laser treatment is not performed properly or with the right equipment, it can be ineffective. For permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers makes sure every technician has the knowledge and experience to perform effective laser hair removal treatments.

If you want permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is the place to go for the best hair removal treatment in Manhattan and surrounding areas.

Pitfalls of Using an Inexperienced Laser Hair Removal Center

There are many laser hair removal providers who claim to provide the “best hair removal treatment” in New York City. However, not everyone is transparent in their advertising. We are beginning a new series of articles discussing the pitfalls of using an inexperienced laser hair removal center. Upon further research, it is sometimes discovered that these hair removal laser treatment providers are inexperienced and in some cases, using inferior technology.  Manhattan Laser Centers not only has a staff with extensive experience providing hair removal laser treatment, but we also perform laser hair removal using the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser.  Let’s take a look at some of the downfalls of using an inexperienced laser hair removal center.

Unwanted Skin Changes

When laser hair removal is performed by an inexperienced provider, skin lightening, or darkening can occur.  This can be permanent in some cases.

Burns/Blistering

One of the most serious side effects of having hair removal laser treatment provided by an inexperienced provider is burns and/or blistering on the skin, which is why you should always seek services from an experience laser hair removal center.

Our next article will cover more pitfalls of using an inexperienced laser hair removal center.

Hair Removal Laser Treatment

We are continuing our series on preparing for your first hair removal laser treatment. Our previous article discussed the importance of shaving the areas being treated beforehand and refraining from being out in the sun a few days before laser hair removal is to be performed.  Today, we will provide a few more tips to help you prepare for your first hair removal laser treatment.

Ask Before Taking Medications

Some medications, especially those such as antibiotics which are photosensitive, can cause skin to become irritated after hair removal laser treatment.  If you plan to take any medications prior to laser hair removal, we advise that you check with us before doing so.  We also recommend staying away from certain topicals such as those that contain retinoid and alpha hydroxyl a few days prior to hair removal laser treatment.

Stock Up on Moisturizers and Lotions

You should apply plenty of moisturizers and lotions after hair removal laser treatment.  This will help keep your skin from drying out and also soothe the areas treated.

Will Hair Removal Laser Treatment Work On My Hair/Skin Type?

Yes!  Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser for all of our laser hair removal treatments.  Medical lasers address light, fine hair much more effectively than intense pulsed light (IPL).  While dark, coarse hair responds the best to hair removal laser treatment, we treat all shades of hair. We will discuss your specific hair type and what to expect during your initial consultation.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Absolutely!  Laser hair removal is a permanent solution to get rid of unwanted hair on any part of your body.  We perform everything from single areas to full legs laser and even full body hair removal.
