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.

We find that many people have questions about laser hair removal but are too shy to ask.  Are you interested in learning more about laser hair removal?  New York City has many providers, and you’ll find that Manhattan Laser Centers is one of the few that is open and transparent with our clients. Over the next few months, Manhattan Laser Centers will publish a series of articles designed to answer the questions some people are too shy to ask.

“I have a lot of thick, dark hair.  Will you be able to help?”

Yes, we can help!  We are one of the few laser hair removal centers in New York City that uses a true medical laser.  Medical lasers have been proven effective on all skin types and tones and are also effective in reducing and removing thick, dark hair. In fact, thick hair is actually easier for a medical laser to target and it responds much faster to treatments. Beware of companies who claim to use a medical laser but instead use intense pulsed light (IPL).  IPL’s cannot treat thick hair without risk of burning the skin.

“Can you remove hair from my bikini or private areas?”

Yes, we perform full body laser hair removal for both men and women.  Some NYC customers prefer we treat specific areas (i.e. legs, arms, underarms, lip, chin, back, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, chest, bikini area, and private areas) while others choose to design and customize a full body package.

“Do you work with the LGBTQ communities?”

Absolutely!!!!  At Manhattan Laser Centers, we pride ourselves on being gender agnostic and are an official LGBTQ friendly zone as declared on our Google local business profile. Some laser hair removal centers in NYC are not gender agnostic and will not offer private area treatments to men.

“Can you treat ingrown hairs?”

Yes we can!  Ingrown hairs are a common problem that can be remedied with laser hair removal in just a few sessions.
