10 Things You Need to Know Before Starting Laser Hair Removal

It actually works

The number one question we get is “Does it actually work?”. Most Simplicity customers achieve 70 to 90 percent permanent reduction with a consistent series of 10 to 12 treatments. Check out our testimonials and this customer spotlight!

Research the type of laser used


Make sure you are getting treated by a real laser, not an IPL to ensure better results. We use Nd:YAG and Alexandrite lasers from Candela because they are the most effective lasers on the market and allow us to treat any skin color and type. Check out this blog post for more details.

Hair color matters


Laser hair removal is most effective on brown and black hair. However, our lasers can treat on all skin types.


It doesn’t have to break the bank


Traditionally, laser hair removal is famous for costing thousands of dollars. At Simplicity Laser, you can get eight treatments for only $79. Talk about affordable!

It’s a commitment


Be suspicious of anyone who advertises instant, permanent results. Laser hair removal takes 10-12 treatments spaced out in 4-8 week intervals in order to achieve real results. You need multiple treatments in order to target all hair follicles, not just active follicles. Click here for more information about hair growth cycles.

There are things you can do to help with the pain


Laser hair removal feels kind of like being snapped with a rubber band. However, we use a Zimmer cooling machine that blows continuous cold, numbing air on your skin during your laser treatment to make sure you are comfortable. We also sell topical anesthetic to help numb the skin before treatments.

The sun is not your friend during your laser treatments


Before and after laser hair removal treatments you need to stay out of the sun for 7-14 days. Also, you need to avoid sunless tanning and spray tan products. Pick up a Zinc Oxide sunscreen to help protect your skin in between treatments.

Using certain products can help maximize results


The healthier your skin is, the better laser hair removal works. We recommend using Restorative Gel in between and after treatments to calm and restore the skin, ensuring you receive optimum results.


Appointments usually last between 5-20 minutes

Technology developments in the laser hair removal field have led to fast, easy treatments. Since there is no down-time after treatments, you can even get treated during your lunch break.

It is totally worth it


The average person spends over 100 days shaving over a lifetime. Waxing costs about the same as laser hair removal, but you have to do it forever instead of only 18 months, which adds up.
