Due to the cooling technology our APRNs or PAs administer both before and during each treatment session, you will feel minimal, if any, pain. Most patients report that treatment does not hurt at all and the most common feeling they experience is tingling or a snapping sensation. We administer cooling technology as needed, so at any point you may request that the APRN or PA conducting treatment provide more cooling to the area.
If you want to experience what it feels like, while we never offer free trials of treatments, we do offer a "test pulse". Using the laser settings which (based upon your particular factors) we would be most likely to start your treatments with, you could experience 2 or 3 laser pulses. It would not possibly be effective at hair removal, and laser settings do increase, but it would at least give you a sense of how a treatment would feel. For a test pulse, you must still follow the pre-treatment instructions found here, because they are not only for safety, but also affect your skin's sensitivity.
At Body Details True Laser® Centers, our professionally trained medical providers use the state-of-the-art GentleMax Pro True Laser Class IV to safely and effectively render hair follicles inert. This laser can be calibrated for both light and dark skin and can be used on sensitive facial skin. We offer free, no-obligation consultations before treatment, and our all-inclusive pricing guarantees that your facial skin will be smooth and hairless at the end of your treatment plan.
Prior to your treatment, your professional laser technician will advise you on what to do and what to avoid prior to each session. Here are a few of the things you can do to prepare for your appointments:
Just as there are certain measures you should take prior to your appointment, aftercare is also important. Here is how you can take care of your face after a facial laser hair removal treatment:
Hair removal usually requires several treatments to achieve full results. There are, however, cases where hair can grow back. In some instances, hair follicles aren’t completely destroyed by the laser. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can also stimulate hair growth in new follicles. Steroidal medications may stimulate hair growth after laser hair removal. Body Details The Devil is in the Details™ lifetime guarantee allows you to come back for free touchups for life
Hair can grow back thicker after removal, but this is rare. In most cases, the hair follicle is dead and will not grow any hair. In any event, additional treatments will usually take care of the new hair. This is one of the reasons why Body Details True Laser® Centers offers all-inclusive packages and free touchups for life.
Most people express mild or no irritation while undergoing treatment. Our laser hair removal devices have a built-in dynamic cooling device (DCD), which sprays cryogenically cooled air on the affected area. Additionally, your procedure is executed by a trained medical professional who is aware of signs of discomfort. If you need to take a break, you just have to say so. Most people don’t require a stoppage, though.
