Manhattan Laser Spa is committed to excellence in Laser Hair Removal and Laser Treatment Services. Excess body or facial hair can be a problem for both women and men. Frequent hair removal chores including shaving, depilatories, plucking, and waxing are time-consuming, often painful, and always inconvenient. At best, they offer only temporary results, for some only a few hours. Laser technology has brought us a better way, a safe, long-lasting way to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body, leaving skin feeling smooth and healthy.
A laser hair removal procedure can be a short as a few minutes or take an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated and density of hair growth. It is entirely safe and generally painless, with the laser selectively targeting the hair follicle without damage to the skin. Because laser treatment destroys only the hair follicle during its growth cycle, having no effect on the follicles that are dormant at the time of treatment.
Must avoid waxing, plucking, threading or electrolysis of the hair for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment.
Avoid the sun exposure for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment.
The treatment area needs to be shaved to skin level and be fully washed off and has no makeup, creams, etc.
We do not recommend to have laser treatments if you are on medications such as Accutane, Retin-A, Gold Therapy etc, at present or within the past 6 months. These medications and several others, can make your skin susceptible to damage from the laser. The list of the aforementioned medications is available upon request.
Laser treatments can not be given during your pregnancy!
Keep the treatment area clean;
Use tepid water for bath or shower with gentle wash.
Avoid shaving the treated area for at least 4 days after treatment.
Do not wax, pluck, thread or use depilatories between laser sessions, only shave if necessary.
Avoid sun exposure for at least 3 weeks after treatment. Protect the area with a sunscreen of higher than SPF 30, and protect the skin from developing hyper-pigmentation marks.

After the treatment, the treated area may become pink, red, inflamed, or even blistered and may last several hours to several days, apply the ice, cooling gels, Hydrocortisone or Neosporin to relief.
