WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
The SHR Speed AFT treatment is a nearly discomfort-free hair removal treatment that you will love! A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment areas, skin, and hair type.

Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that is effective for most patients. During your consultation, we will go over your concerns, needs, and goals to help decide if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Want to stop using other techniques for hair removal (waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in overall, good physical health
What should I Expect after Laser Hair Removal?
Although the treatment is relatively gentle, your skin may look like it has a mild sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you are able to go back to your daily activities, but you need to refrain from exercise or extended time outdoors for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. At home after your treatment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or ice packs to minimize any mild discomfort.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Getting laser hair removal will vary in cost depending on the size and number of areas being treated, in addition to the number of sessions recommended in your consultation plan to attain a smooth result. As you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair removal, we recommend estimating the energy and time you currently spend on waxing, shaving, or other temporary methods. As you run the comparison, you will likely find that laser hair removal is typically more cost-effective and will save you energy and time long-term. We will create a treatment plan for you that includes the total number of appointments you need and pricing options to consider.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment for long-lasting improvements. While you can enjoy the results of the procedure for years, laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent since some hair follicles may not be affected by the laser. Regardless, patients find most of their hair will become dormant after their treatment plan is done, and if stray hairs pop up, it's very easy to manage. More laser treatments can be needed to address new growth and any stragglers.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair follicles grow in phases. While some follicles are growing, other follicles are resting. Since each hair follicle grows in various stages, several treatment sessions are usually recommended to target each hair follicle when it is growing. Scheduling your treatments scattered throughout a few weeks should help you get better, smoother results.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal at Rejuvenation Wellness Center can cause some discomfort, but it is not too painful. Most patients may feel a small sting when the laser zaps the hair follicle. Dr. Natalia Levinskaya may use a numbing ointment on the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment. Patients who are used to getting waxed have stated that laser hair removal is more comfortable compared to a normal waxing session.
Which laser is best to remove hair?
There are many lasers available. Our Plainview, NY practice is proud to offer cutting-edge hair removal technology for women and men of varying hair types.

How long does laser hair removal take?
