How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a simple, safe and reliable procedure. Laser beam targets the pigment in hair follicle, it transforms into heat that is absorbed by the pigment in hair and destroys the cells lining, the hair follicle specifically around the bulb, bulge and vascular supply. Because of the laser’s precision, the skin and surrounding area are left untouched.
After 4-6 treatments, most people experience permanent hair reduction in the targeted areas. Your age, skin tone, hair colour and targeted area are all considered when determining the length of time required to see permanent effects. If you are under 18, you will need written parental consent to have the procedure performed.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Treatments are Necessary?
4-6 Treatments are usually required for satisfactory hair reduction. Maintenance treatments may be required to maintain results.
Different areas have different density percentages and hair per square inch in the anagen phase (growing phase) at any given time:
– Face, Axilla, Bikini have approximately 20-35%
– Trunk and Extremities have approximately 10-20%
Do I need maintenance treatments?
It is required to have maintenance treatments once a series is complete or once hair regrowth is observed. This regrowth is the left over dormant hair that moved to growing phase. It is recommended to have one or two maintenance treatments six months past your last session to complete your hair reduction cycle.
What is the treatment interval?
As a rule Re-treatment Intervals are:
– Face/Axilla/Bikini: 4-6 weeks
– Trunk: 8-10 weeks
– Arms & Legs: 10-12 weeks
Or within 7 days of when re-growth is observed.
Why does it take a number of laser hair removal treatments to clear an area of excess, unwanted hair?
Hair grows in cycles, and only in the growing phase does the hair contain enough pigment to absorb sufficient energy to disable the hair follicle. When hair is in the dormant phase, it has little or no pigment, and it cannot absorb the laser light. When you come in to MC Laser Clinic for your treatment, we disable all of the hair follicles with actively growing hair in the treatment area. A few weeks later, some of your dormant hairs will have moved into the actively growing stage, and you will come in for a treatment to disable those. As this cycle gets repeated, you experience increasing reduction of hair.
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?
Most laser companies recommend six to eight treatments to achieve clearance of an area. We have some clients who are happy after four treatments, and a minority who have needed more than six.
What is the cost of laser hair removal?
The cost of laser hair removal varies depending on the size, complexity and other factors of the area treated. Our prices for a single area range from as little as $59 to as much as $600. MC Laser Clinic & Hair Salon provides generous cost-effective packages and “combo” pricing to help you to get to your goal of being hair-free where you want to be as soon as possible.
