Laser Hair Removal: Does It Really Work?

Our esthetician Sarah offers laser hair removal, and clients often ask the same things. We know permanent hair removal is a bit of investment, so let’s answer your most common questions

Does laser hair removal actually work?

When it comes to laser hair treatments, all are not equal. The machines that are used range from inexpensive and ineffective, to top-of-the-line and worth every penny. The machine we have at Byōōdē Bar is the highest quality, which means better results in fewer visits.

Beware the discount places that require 20+ sessions to achieve results—they often don’t work and are just a waste of your money. On paper it may look like a great deal (you can go so many times for such little money!), but in the end you’re committing far more time to end up disappointed.

Well, what better time than your own wedding, amirite?
