Laser Hair Removal FAQ

Where Can I Learn More About Laser Hair Removal?

Check out our laser hair removal page to learn the basics about this permanent, FDA-approved hair removal treatment. You can also visit our blog for more in-depth information and interesting facts about laser hair removal and other beauty treatments!

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I need?

Results are unique to each individual. Typically six up to twelve laser treatments are recommended, but it may be more or less.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt ?

Laser hair removal hurts less than most other forms of hair removal, especially waxing. Our clients are often surprised to discover the treatment is much more painless than they expected! Many describe the sensation as similar to a snap of a tiny rubber band. All of our machines are equipped with a cooling feature that eases the sting immediately after each laser pulse.

Does Laser Hair Removal Work on Any Skin Type?

At SEV, we use both Nd:YAG and Alexandrite laser hair removal technologies, allowing us to effectively treat customers regardless of skin type or skin tone.

How Often Should I Come in For Laser Hair Removal?

For best results, make sure to come in every 4 to 6 weeks. This allows us to maximize your results while keeping your skin in great shape.

What Machines Does SEV Use for Laser Hair Removal?

We use state-of-the-art laser equipment like the Candela GentleMax Pro and Cynosure Elite IQ. These cutting-edge machines are equipped with Alexandrite and Nd:YAG laser technologies, to effectively treat all customers regardless of skin type.

Can I Shave Between Laser Hair Removal Treatments?

Yes! In fact, we require that you shave your treatment area 24-48 hours before your appointment. After your treatment, wait at least 7-10 days before shaving again.

Why Is Laser Hair Removal Better Than Waxing?

Waxing is much more painful than laser hair removal. It requires you to keep removing your hair every three weeks for the rest of your life, while laser has permanent results. You also need to grow your hair out in between appointments, while laser allows you to shave.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permenant?

Laser hair removal is approved by the FDA as a permanent hair reduction method. Most of our clients report complete or significant permanent reduction in hair growth after their treatments. In specific cases, fluctuating hormones can stimulate regrowth, in which case we recommend coming in for a touch-up.

How Do I Prepare for My First Laser Hair Removal?

Prior to laser hair removal, the most important thing is to avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks prior to your appointment. Take good care of your skin, avoid using harsh or exfoliating skincare products, and make sure to shave a day before your appointment. Please check out our appointment information page for complete instructions.

What Does Full Body Laser Hair Removal Include?

Full body means just that. We’ll treat any part of your body where you would like to eliminate hair, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini or Brazilian area, neck, chest, and more!

Dermal Fillers/Injectables FAQ

Do Filler Injections Hurt?

All of the dermal fillers we use include lidocaine to numb the area and reduce pain. While you may feel the sting of the needle initially, the pain subsides quickly. Your treated area might feel tender for a few days following your treatment.

Where Can I inject Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are ideal for plumping up and adding volume to the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, undereyes, chin, and jawline. We’ll recommend the ideal filler for you based on your target area and desired results.

How Often Do Fillers Need to Be Redone?

This depends on the type of filler and how your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. Most of the fillers we use last for up to 12 months, but they may start to lose their volume a little earlier.

Will I Have Any Bruising or Swelling After Filler Injection?

Not necessarily! While swelling and bruising are common temporary side effects, some of our clients don’t experience them at all.

Is Dermal Filler Reversible?

Yes. Dermal filler can be dissolved with a simple injection of dissolver. That said, we still recommend you take your time to consider whether filler is right for you and how you’d like it to look. Constantly dissolving and re-injecting filler can lead to undesirable results.

Can I Have Laser Hair Removal in the Injected Areas?

Please avoid laser hair removal for at least two weeks before and after getting injectables.

What Are the Common Areas for Botox Injections?

Botox is extremely effective and popular for areas with wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. That includes lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

What Injectables Does SEV Offer?

The available injectables at SEV include Botox, Dysport, Juvederm Ultra XC, Restylane, Restylane Kysse, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, Kybella, and dissolver.

How Long Does Juvéderm Voluma Last?

Juvéderm Voluma is one of the longest-lasting hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. Its results can last for up to 2 years, although this also varies from person to person. We recommend coming in after a year for a touch-up.

How Long Does Kybella Last?

The results from Kybella are very long-lasting, even with weight gain. Once you achieve the results you want, you can expect them to last for years and decades to come.

Is Kybella Considered Filler?

No. Kybella is not considered a filler because it doesn’t add volume. Instead, it’s an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of a double chin.

How Long Do Restylane Fillers Last?

Restylane results can last up to 18 months, depending on the Restylane product, treatment area, and other factors.

How Long Does Volbella Last?

Juvéderm Volbella is a long-lasting lip filler with results usually lasting for 9 to 12 months.


What Are the Common Areas for Botox Injections?

Botox is extremely effective and popular for areas with wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. That includes lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

When Will I See the Effects of My Botox Injections?

Botox usually takes a few days to start working. You’ll start seeing results in 3 to 7 days after the initial injection, and they’ll continue to improve until you achieve peak results around 2 weeks after the treatment.

What Are Some of the Common Side Effects of Botox?

Tenderness in the injection site is very common. You may also experience a little bit of bruising, swelling, or small bumps. Other side effects, like headaches, neck pain, rashes, drooping eyelids, dry eyes, or a crooked smile are not necessarily major causes for concern but they merit reaching out to your doctor.

What are the less common but more serious side effects of BOTOX?

  • Temporary Paralysis
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Allergic Reaction
If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.

What Should I Avoid After My Botox Treatment?

Immediately after your Botox injection, it’s best to leave the treatment area as undisturbed as possible.

  • Stay upright, and avoid bending forward or backward.
  • Lying down should be avoided for 4 hours after your treatment. For the first night, consider sleeping propped up on a pillow.
  • Don’t apply any pressure, ice packs, or massage to the treated areas.
  • Avoid intense activities or exercise for 24 hours following your treatment.
  • Stay out of the sun, and wear sunscreen if you go outside.
  • Avoid using harsh and potentially irritating skincare products.
  • Stay hydrated, and avoid alcohol consumption.
Your nurse will provide any additional aftercare guidance following your treatment.


What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an incredible rejuvenating treatment that combines microneedling and radiofrequency. It transforms the skin on a very deep level, like a non-surgical facelift or body contouring treatment. It stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis, to encourage a natural anti-aging process. Expect tighter, smoother skin and faded wrinkles! Morpheus8 is very unique as it can penetrate 4 mm deep, resulting in the coagulation of fat tissue, for a more contoured physique.

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated With Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a complete face and body treatment. We most commonly perform it on the following body parts:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Jawline
  • Below the chin
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Are Needed?

    For best results, we normally recommend undergoing 1-5 Morpheus8 sessions. The precise number depends on your skin condition and goals. For best results, we highly recommend purchasing a package of 3 or more treatments. While you may only need a single session initially, we recommend coming in for maintenance treatments once you see your results starting to fade.

    How Quickly Will I See Results With Morpheus8?

    You will begin to see some improvement in your skin just a few days after your treatment. As time passes, your skin will continue to improve thanks to increased collagen production, with the most noticeable results showing around the 3-week mark. That said, you will probably continue to see improvement in your skin for 3 months after your treatment.

    How Long Should I Wait In Between Morpheus8 Treatments?

    For best results, we recommend coming in for Morpheus8 treatments once every 4-6 weeks.

    What Is the Benefit of Fractionated Radiofrequency?

    Fractionated radiofrequency is deeply-penetrating energy that heats the skin. It’s scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles, stimulate tissue constriction, and rebuild collagen, for firmer, younger-looking skin. The combination of fractionated radiofrequency and microneedling amplifies the power of both technologies, creating truly stunning results.

    When Can I Wear Makeup After Morpheus8?

    We recommend waiting at least 24-48 hours after your Morpheus8 treatment before applying makeup.

    Does Morpheus8 Hurt?

    Although Morpheus8 uses needles, it's not usually painful. We will provide you with a topical numbing cream approximately 45-60 minutes prior to your treatment to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.


    What Is Forma Skin Tightening??

    Also known as the red carpet facial, Forma is a gentle and non-invasive treatment for tightening the skin. It combines heat and radiofrequency to stimulate improved collagen production, to lift, tighten, and contour the skin.

    How Long Does It Take To See Results From Forma?

    Most clients see immediate tightening effects from Forma, which is why it’s so popular as a pre-event facial. For lasting and dramatic results, we recommend coming in for at least 5 or 6 sessions.

    How Many Forma Treatments Are Needed?

    Forma is fantastic as a one-off treatment when you want an immediate skin-tightening effect. For pronounced, lasting results, we recommend coming in for at least 5 or 6 sessions, followed by yearly maintenance sessions.

    Is Forma For Me?

    If you’re experiencing an increase in skin laxity and loss of tone, Forma might be for you! It’s gentle and non-invasive, so it’s a safe choice for all skin types. That said, for customers hoping for a more dramatic skin-firming or renewing effect, you may benefit from a more intensive treatment like Morpheus8 or Potenza.

    Does Forma Hurt?

    Not at all. The Forma device is pleasantly warm, and the treatment is often compared to a relaxing hot stone massage.

    What Areas Can Be Treated With Forma?

    Forma is safe anywhere on the body, but we like it best for the face, neck, and chest. We tend to focus on lifting the jawline, jowls, nasolabial fold, eyes, eyebrows, forehead, and neck.

    Evolve (Trim Tite Tone)

    What Is Evolve (Trim Tite Tone)?

    Evolve is a non-invasive hands-free treatment for body contouring. Evolve has 3 modes: Tite for skin tightening, Trim for body contouring, and Tone for muscle toning. The device is designed to remodel the skin, treat adipose tissue (fat pockets) and activate muscles all in one platform.

    What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated With Evolve?

    Evolve can be done on almost every body part, but it’s most popular for the abdomen, arms, back of the legs, buttocks, and thighs.

    Does Evolve Hurt?

    Not at all! During your treatment you can just lie back and relax. We’ll make sure the applicators are comfortably positioned. At most, you may feel a slightly odd vibrating or pulsating sensation.

    How Does Evolve Body Contouring Work?

    The Evolve system transmits energy via a system of applicators that are attached to the skin. The specific energy and mechanism of action is a little different depending on the treatment. Tite utilizes radio frequency to heat the lower levels of the dermis in a process called skin remodeling. It stimulates collagen production, which is essential for countering loss of tone and tightening the skin. Tite combines radiofrequency and vacuum, to heat fat tissue that is stored below the skin. It destroys the fat cells while remodeling the skin, for total body sculpting. Finally, Tone uses electricity to stimulate the muscles, causing them to contract repeatedly which improves definition.

    How Long Does It Take To See Evolve Results?

    You will see some results immediately after your first treatment. After your series of sessions is complete, you’ll keep on seeing improvement for up to 4 months after your last treatment. Once you’ve achieved maximal results, it’s important to maintain them with exercise, great nutrition, and occasional touch-up sessions.

    How Many Sessions Does Evolve Take To Be Effective?

    You will notice some results within just one treatment, but generally, we recommend coming in for at least 6 to 12 treatments for more dramatic body sculpting effects.

    Laser Skin Tightening

    Does Laser Skin Tightening Really Work?

    Yes! Laser is able to stimulate the deeper layers of skin where collagen forms. The process encourages new and improved collagen production, for firmer, smoother, more lifted skin.

    For How Long Will My Skin Tightening Results Last?

    As with any anti-aging treatment, the longevity of your results depends on your genetics as well as other lifestyle factors. We recommend coming in for yearly touch-up treatments in order to maintain your skin firmness indefinitely.

    How Many Treatments Do You Need For Skin Tightening?

    We normally recommend between 3 to 5 treatments to see desired results, along with occasional touch-up sessions.
