HAIR REMOVAL FAQ.

Who can receive laser hair removal? Am I a candidate?

If you have unwanted hair, then you are a great candidate for laser hair removal. Both men and women alike can receive laser hair removal treatments. Our Astanza ReSmooth laser is designed to treat all patient skin types and hair colors, even patients with newly tanned skin. Patients with lighter skin and darker hair may experience faster results due to the contrast in hair and skin pigment.

Which body areas can you treat?

Evolution Laser Studio can treat all body parts, both big and small. Our ReSmooth laser uses interchangeable small and large handpiece tips for effective and precise treatment on both small areas like the upper lip and large areas like the legs or back.

How many treatments will I need?

Laser hair removal is only effective on hairs in the active growth phase. In order to treat hairs during this stage, most patients will need in the range of 6 to 8 treatments spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart. The total number of treatments may vary dependent on factors including, but not limited to, skin tone and hair color. Our expert laser technicians will give you a free hair and skin assessment to best determine the exact number of treatments your unique hair and skin type will need.

How long are treatment sessions? Is there a long recovery period?

Laser hair removal at Evolution Laser Studio is extremely fast. Our ReSmooth laser uses an industry-leading spot size to treat large areas such as the back or legs in as little as 4 minutes. Depending on how many areas you want treated, a total hair removal session can last up to 30 minutes. This procedure requires no downtime, so you’re able to come in for treatment during a lunch break and head straight back to work or to other activities right away.

Does the laser hurt?

Evolution Laser Studio is the only hair removal provider in Portland, Maine that provides painless laser treatments. Our advanced ReSmooth laser uses a unique SmoothPulse mode to evenly distribute energy throughout multiple passes, effectively dividing up the laser heat and promoting a pain-free experience. This feature combined with the ReSmooth’s integrated contact cooling technology helps cool and alleviate the skin immediately before each treatment pulse.

How much does laser hair removal cost?

Evolution Laser Studio determines the cost per treatment primarily based on the size of the area being treated. For more detailed information, check out our pricing page. Treatment packages are available for patients who want to bundle and save more, as well as seasonal and promotional discounts. Best of all, consultations are always complimentary and obligation-free!

Are there any risks or side effects to the laser?

Laser hair removal at Evolution Laser Studio is safe for all skin types. Our FDA-approved technology is designed to safely penetrate through the skin and target only melanin in the hair follicles without harming any surrounding skin tissue. Furthermore, our studio only hires expertly-trained laser technicians who are highly knowledgeable in operating and customizing laser protocols to best treat each patient’s specific skin and hair type. The only side effects patients may experience are swelling, itchiness, and redness. These side effects are natural reactions to treatment and typically go away within a few hours following a treatment session.
