If you are sick of the nicks, bumps, and pesky in-grown hairs, trash the wax, tweezers, and razors and receive laser hair removal treatment at Boulder Eyes / Beyer LASIK! Compared to waxing, shaving, and plucking, laser hair removal gives you smooth skin without the daily maintenance. What’s even better is that using lasers to eliminate unwanted hair will most likely ensure that it doesn’t come back at all — while other methods often result in it coming back darker and thicker than before.
We provide laser hair removal packages for several different areas of the body, including:
- Face (Upper lip, chin, sideburns)
- Bikini zone/Brazilian
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
At Beyer Laser Center, we want you to be completely prepared for what to expect from your treatment, including what’s involved leading up to and after it. Our staff will go over all the details with you, but until then this guide should give you a good idea of what to expect.
- Before: Prepping the skin before laser hair removal is important to the overall result. The first thing you will need to do is shave the treated area. Don’t tweeze and/or wax the hair because that can irritate the skin before the procedure.
- During: Once the pre-procedure prep is complete and you put on protective goggles, the laser treatment will begin by the laser technician applying topical numbing cream, which will minimize any discomfort while the laser beam penetrates the hair follicles.
- After: You can leave right after your treatment, but your skin may be slightly sensitive. To treat skin irritation, a cold compress and/or anti-inflammatory cream can be applied to the skin, as long as the technician gives you those instructions. For the best results, wait 4-6 weeks before your next treatment.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Patients always ask: “Does laser hair removal work permanently?” Well, we’re happy to answer that ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions.
However, a high success rate depends on the individual as well as the area being treated. Not everyone has the same skin pigmentation, hair color, hair thickness, and growth. To ensure laser hair removal works completely, your doctor will need to develop a customized treatment plan, which requires a consultation.
Are There Any Laser Hair Removal Side Effects?
When a laser moves across the skin to remove hair, you will feel a slight pinch each time the root of the hair is removed. The affected area of skin may feel sunburned and look swollen and/or red. After the treatment, side effects are minor and rare.
Is There Laser Hair Removal For Men?
Hair removal isn’t just for women. Many men also want to get rid of hair in particular areas. Some prefer to just get the hair thinned out in common areas where hair grows dark and coarse: back, chest, and face.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost of laser hair removal depends on how much hair you want removed. We provide our laser hair removal packages at a prorated hourly rate of $300. More surface area means more time with the laser. For example, removing hair on the upper lip may only take 30 minutes and cost $150 (based on the hourly rate), but laser hair removal on both legs can take more than an hour, which means the price will increase as well.
