Q:

Does laser hair removal still work if you space out the treatments more than the suggested 6 weeks? For example if I went several months between treatments? Thanks

Malia J.  asked on  Nov 15, 2012

A:

Hi Malia, if the treatments are not spaced 6-8 weeks apart, they will still work, but the results could be less optimal. Spacing them too close to each other may actually have more negative impact, because there may not be enough hair follicles in growth phase to get targeted by the laser. Going beyond 8 weeks is not ideal either, but probably its negative impact on the results will be smaller and you should still see the results. Thanks!

Q:

How would you compare this laser to the LightSheer laser? I have light skin, dark hairs. Thanks

Chris K.  asked on  Nov 14, 2012

A:

Hi Chris, at Amoderm we use Candela GentleYAG lasers and people with dark hair and light skin like you are usually the perfect candidates. LightSheer is also a very good laser made by Lumenis, but we don't use it at Amoderm as based on our experience, Candela could do better on darker and thicker hair. Again both types are FDA-approved and effective. Thanks!

Q:

Hi. I don't see upper thighs included in the list of services. Would that be included in a large area? Thanks!

Michelle H.  asked on  Nov 14, 2012

A:

Hi Michelle, it depends on how you define upper thighs. If you want treatment for full upper legs, then that is not included in this deal, but if you are referring to the upper regions, then that could be covered under a large area voucher. I recommend that you get the voucher and come for the free consultation during which we can verify the areas to be treated and if for any reason you were not completely happy with the package, you can get full refund. Thanks!

Q:

Do you have an option for full back and shoulders?

Chris K.  asked on  Nov 14, 2012

A:

Hi Chris, shoulders will be covered by a groupon voucher for a medium area, and lower back will be covered by a voucher for large area. You can only buy 1 voucher from website here, but you can get a second voucher directly from us on your consultation session. I suggest that you get a voucher from groupon here and come to our clinic for a consult and we will give you the second voucher. For the remaining area in between, we do offer 60-70% off on our laser packages for groupon clients, so we should be able to offer you that at significant discount. Again, if you are not pleased with the package offered on the consultation session, you have no obligation to buy and you can get full refund. Thanks!

The fine print states, "valid only for option purchased." What is an option purchase? Please clarify. Thank you in advance.

A:

Q: How many sessions are needed for complete hair removal? A: The results vary from person to person and we cannot be 100% sure, but in most people, 4-8 sessions achieve near complete hair removal depending on the location and color of the hair/skin. Laser hair removal is not much effective against white hair.

A:

Q: What is your laser machine and who does the treatments? A: All laser hair removal treatments are done by our experienced Registered Nurses under direct supervision of physician. We use Candela GentleYAG lasers which are state-of-the-art FDA-cleared machines highly effective for laser hair removal even in darker skins which are usually more challenging for laser hair removal.

Q: How early can I make my first appointment? A: Our appointments are booked on a first-come, first-served basis. However, we do our best to accommodate your needs and see you in as early as 1 to 2 weeks. We do offer appointments on weekdays as well as Saturdays.

A:

Q: Is laser hair removal painful? A: Pain is a subjective complaint: Some find it painless and some may find it uncomfortable. It depends on the area as well; for example, treatment of bikini area is usually more painful. However you have the option of buying Lidocaine (numbing) cream at the location during your complementary consultation. For the convenience of our clients, we provide the Lidocaine cream for laser hair removal treatments which has been compounded by licensed pharmacists with significant discount compared with purchasing it outside. The cream should be applied 20 to 30 minutes prior to having the treatment to make the area numb and make the treatment as comfortable as possible.

Q: The expiration date for the deal is May 15, 2013. Isn't that too early to get all the treatments done? A: The expiration date only applies to the first appointment, so all you need to do is to make sure that you have your first session scheduled and done by May 15, 2013. The remaining sessions can (and as a matter of fact, some will) go beyond this date. We normally space treatment sessions 6-8 weeks apart from each other considering the normal growth cycle of hair follicles and for the best results. Hence we ask our patients to complete all 6 treatment sessions within 18 months of the first session. This is to ensure best results and to help the clients stay on the 6-8 week intervals between the treatment sessions.

Q: What if I need other areas or additional sessions? A: For clients who buy this deal, we are offering our regular packages at 60-70% discount, should they need other areas or additional sessions. Also, if you are interested in an area that is not listed here, you can call us at 949-266-7346 directly and get the other areas with 60-70% discount while this deal is running.

Q: Can I buy more coupons at the location? A:Yes, you can buy one more coupon for yourself and as many as you want as gift, by the end of the consultation visit (so that you can get the treatments at the same time as the first coupon) . But please note that clients cannot have more than 1 coupon for LARGE areas for themselves. For instance, a client who has bought a small or medium area can buy a small, medium or large area as the second coupon for herself at the location but a client who has bought a large area can only buy a small or medium area as the second coupon for herself (cannot have the second as large area). On the other hand, there is no limit on gifts and so a client who has bought a large area can buy 5 additional coupons for large areas for 5 other people as gifts. Please call us at 949-266-7346 or stop by our clinic to purchase additional coupons.

Q: What exactly is the complementary consultation? A: Before starting the laser treatments, we will book an appointment for you to see one of our experienced consultants. During that visit, she reviews with you how the laser hair removal works, what the expected results are, and what the things that you should or shouldn’t do to get the best results are. She will review your health condition and medications and instruct you on any necessary adjustments to make sure that you are a good candidate for the laser treatment. Once it’s done, we will schedule the treatment sessions for you. This will also be an opportunity for you to visit our center and meet our staff to make sure that this is the right place for you to get your treatments done (and we are sure that you will like us!).

Hi Sarah, this is a standard statement that is included in many deals and it just means that each voucher can only be used toward getting the services listed for that voucher. For example, a voucher for laser treatment on small areas bought here can only be used for small areas as described here... Of course if there is need to make adjustment later on to the areas, etc, we will be more than happy to do that later on and during your consult. Thanks!
