Laser hair removal FAQs
How much does laser hair removal cost?
The cost of laser hair removal is based on multiple factors, such as the location and size of the treatment zone. This means that the price will vary for each patient, depending on their unique treatment plan. During your initial visit with Dr. Leffingwell, he'll discuss your goals and estimate your costs based on your needs.
What areas does Soprano ICE hair removal treat?
Laser hair removal with Soprano ICE can be performed essentially anywhere hair resides on the face and body. At Refining Beauty, we most commonly treat the arms, back, legs, armpits, upper lip area, and bikini line.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Your hair growth occurs in cycles. While some hair follicles are growing, other follicles are resting. Since each hair follicle grows in a different stage, multiple treatments are typically recommended to target each follicle when it's in an active growth phase. Scheduling your sessions over a few weeks usually helps achieve the most effective outcomes.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The process of laser hair removal can cause minor discomfort, but it's not considered a painful procedure. You may feel a slight sting as the laser zaps each hair follicle, but the cold sapphire tip of our Soprano ICE system helps ease discomfort. Plus, Dr. Leffingwell usually applies a numbing ointment on the skin prior to treatment for added relaxation.
