Fast Facts on Laser Hair Removal
You have millions of hair follicles in your body, all of which cycle through different phases. Laser hair removal can only treat a certain percentage of those follicles at a time, so it must be done at varied intervals
Here are some of the most important things you need to know if you are considering laser hair removal. Hair removal is only effective on dark hairs, blonde and gray hairs will not be effected by hair removal.
Number of Treatments Required:
Generally, our patients need 6-10 treatments for maximum hair reduction, although some patients require more. To keep the treatment area as smooth as possible, periodic maintenance treatments may be recommended as well.
Each treatment session is spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. This gives time for the treated hairs to fall out and new hair growth, part of the natural hair growth cycle, to emerge so that it can be treated.
This varies from 15 minutes to over an hour depending on the amount of hair and the size of the area being treated.
People respond to laser hair removal treatments differently. Some have minor skin redness and swelling for a few hours, while most have almost no after effects.
A significant percentage of hair in the treatment area will be removed permanently. Hair will become lighter and sparser after each treatment session.
