Hair Removal FAQ’s

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

If you have unwanted hair, you are a candidate for laser hair removal. People of all genders are eligible to receive laser hair removal. Our Astanza ReSmooth laser can safely treat all patient skin types I-VI, even newly tanned skin.

Can all hair and all body areas be treated?

Yes! Our advanced ReSmooth laser targets the melanin/pigment in all hair follicles. That said, dark pigments such as black hair on light skin types will respond better than light pigments like grey hair on light skin types. The higher the contrast between skin and hair and the darker the hair color, the better the absorption and results will be.

As far as which body areas can be treated, our ReSmooth laser has no limits! Clean Slate Ink can perform laser hair removal on all body parts, both big and small. Our ReSmooth’s interchangeable handpiece tips are designed to quickly treat large areas like the back, chest, and legs as well as precisely target smaller areas like the upper lip and bikini area. Visit our laser hair removal pricing page to see the full list of body areas we treat.

How many treatments will I need?

Multiple treatments are needed for every client in order to target each individual hair during its active growth phase, the anagen phase. To target hairs during this growth cycle, patients are recommended a minimum of 6 to 12 treatments spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart. Additional sessions needed vary case by case and depend on factors like hair and skin type. Our expert laser technicians will assess your unique hair and skin type to best estimate the number of treatments you will need.
