Frequently Asked Questions

  • A: Every patient’s skin responds to laser treatments in its own way. By impacting the hair follicles in the treatment area, laser hair removal impairs the follicles’ ability to grow hair in the future. Depending on your unique skin, this will typically result in either close to permanent or semi-permanent results after approximately six treatment sessions.  Results will vary from person to person.

  • A: At Laser Lights, we pride ourselves on having our services available at very reasonable prices.  Compared to many other salons,our prices can’t be beat.  Laser treatments are very affordable, much to the surprise of several patients.

  • A: Scarring is rare and generally, any scabs that appear post-treatment vanish in a short period of time, two weeks or less. Hyper-pigmentation (darkening of the skin) can be a minor risk for certain skin types and should this occur the effect is temporary and will vanish in time; however, we have lasers that are FDA approved to laser any skin color, including suntanned skin. Hypo-pigmentation (permanent lightening of the skin) is extremely rare and we have not had a case of this at Laser Lights. It is important to note that our medical grade equipment and experienced staff deters the chances of this occurring.

  • A: Our procedures do not have any major pain associated with them. However, there are certain laser treatments that can cause slight discomfort at the time of the procedure based on the section of the body undergoing treatment.

  • A: Laser Lights uses 12 different types of lasers because every laser operates at a different frequency according to your skin type and the type of treatment you may require.  Dark hair on light skin versus dark hair on dark skin use different lasers, for example, as do treatments for freckles versus hair.
