Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser Hair Removal involves selective targeting of melanin in hair follicles with bursts of intense light energy. This damages the hair follicle, reducing unwanted hair.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
While individual experiences may vary, the comfort of the client is imperative at Kasten Aesthetics. That is why we offer the most advanced, up-to-date technology. Many clients find the Laser Hair Removal so virtually painless and incredibly convenient, they come to our office on their lunch break to reduce unwanted hair from their legs, underarms and bikini area, all within 30 minutes.
What Type of Hair Does Laser Hair Removal Work Best On?
Laser Hair Removal works best on light skin and dark coarse hair. As long as the hair has pigment (meaning color) the laser will recognize the hair and will remove it. Laser Hair Removal is not well suited for gray, red or white hair. Electrolysis may be a better option for treating those colors.
Your hair grows in 3 different stages: active (antigen), transitional (telegan) and resting (catagen). When the hair is in active (antigen) growth phase, there is an appendage attached to the hair follicle that the laser targets for destruction. While results may vary, typically after the first few visits, most clients begin to notice less hair as well as hair getting finer, thinner and lighter. Clients also notice that the hair we have treated will start to grow back less frequently. Toward the end of the Laser Hair Removal sessions, most client’s hair will not grow back for weeks.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Kasten Aesthetics offers competitive pricing and financing options to make it affordable for almost anyone. Laser Hair Removal means money out of your pocket, but if you calculate the lifetime cost of shaving, waxing, threading, plucking, or whatever it is you do to deal with unwanted body hair, then you know that you’re making a wise and worthy investment. Laser Hair Removal cost is different depending on the area and type of laser used. Consultation is complimentary so you find out right away if the treatment is something you can afford.

Will My Hair Grow Back?
When a hair follicle is damaged, the hair usually does not grow back. However, Laser Hair Removal is not guaranteed to be permanent hair removal. Kasten Aesthetics offers permanent hair reduction. Reducing unwanted hair in hormonal areas such as your chin or any access facial hairs more require more sessions. The treatment works by the selective targeting of melanin in hair follicles with bursts of intense light energy that helps reduce unwanted hair by damaging the hair follicle. While this process significantly reduces unwanted hair, it’s possible that a few hair follicles will manage to partially escape the laser during the treatment. But don’t worry. Those hairs are targeted during your following Laser Hair Removal treatments.
Will I Be Out Of Work?
Many of our clients come in for Laser Hair Removal on their lunch break. Using our advanced Laser Hair Removal technology speeds up the hair reduction procedure. It also minimizes downtime, with most patients returning back to work directly after their appointment. Kasten Aesthetics also offers Laser Hair Removal during evening and weekend hours.
How Often Do I Come In For A Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
While every client is different, the number of treatments predominately depends on the areas treated. Typically, when reducing unwanted hair from the underarms and lower half of the body, such as full legs or Brazilian bikini, clients schedule treatments every 6 to 8 weeks. For reducing unwanted facial hair, such as hair on the upper lip, chin, and sideburns, most clients schedule a Laser Hair Removal appointment every 4 to 6 weeks. Usually optimal hair reduction is reached within 6 to 8 weeks, and clients may then opt for a touch up session spaced every 8-12 weeks to reduce remaining hair. Again, the number of treatments and the space between each treatment depends on the client as well as other factors. During your free consultation, a laser specialist will discuss what you may expect during your Laser Hair Removal treatments.
