Terms & Conditions

1. Informed Consent.
The purpose of this Informed Consent terms and conditions is to help you decide whether a laser hair removal (“LHR”) cosmetic procedure is right for you and to help you make an informed decision to undergo this procedure. This Informed Consent gives you general information about LHR cosmetic procedures, explains other treatment options, and identifies the benefits, risks, side effects and possible complications associated with LHR procedure.

2. Laser Hair Removal Procedure.
LHR is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to remove unwanted hair from all parts of the body. The laser device works by emitting pulses of light energy that penetrate the skin and destroy hair follicles while the device’s handpiece cools the surrounding skin. Because the laser needs to fill the hair follicle to work effectively, it is important not to wax, tweeze, have electrolysis procedures or pluck hair for 2-4 weeks prior to the procedure. You will be required to wear protective eye glasses during the procedure to protect your eyes from the laser light. You may feel a slight burning, stinging or pinching sensation during the procedure. It generally takes 10 to 21 days after the procedure for the treated hair to fall out. Treatment of dark course hair generally achieves the best results while removal of light fine hair generally requires additional treatments which may or may not be successful. Clinical results of LHR may also vary depending on individual skin type, hormonal levels and hereditary influences. Therefore, some patients may experience partial results and some may notice no improvement at all. Future hormonal changes may cause additional hair growth. LHR procedure generally involves a series of treatments. 

3. Alternative Procedures.
LHR is a voluntary cosmetic procedure which is not necessary or required.

4. Not Good Candidates.
Generally you are not a good candidate for LHR procedure if you are pregnant, nursing or plan to become pregnant while undergoing LHR treatments. Individuals who have used Accutane within the past six months or who used any medications requiring limited exposure to sunlight are not good candidates for LHR procedure. The laser may not be effective on blond or grey hair. Sun exposure 2-4 weeks prior to treatment may reduce effectiveness of the laser. It is important to shave the area prior to treatment session. ( we do not provide shaving services as you must do this yourself prior to the treatment). Please inform us if you have an allergy to Aloe.
