Question: I have dark hair that grows downward from my lower back. I am female, 24 years old, and this is very noticeable in a bikini. I would love to have this hair removed permanently using laser hair removal. Will this affect the tattoo that I have there?
Answer: First no laser hair removal is totally permanent. On your back after 4 or 5 sessions the hair will be very thin and need only perhaps once a year treatments. As for the tattoo it will probably be unaffected by the hair laser and should not change at all.
I do not do well with pain. Do you offer anesthesia for hair removal in cases where patients have little threshold for pain?
We give everyone an oral valium, and with our experience placing the local anesthesia (which is done gently with a special machine) there is almost no pain. Certainly no need for either I.V. or general anesthesia.
