How does laser hair removal work?
There are two key components to effective laser hair removal. For one, laser hair removal focuses laser energy on the melanin or pigment in the root of your hair. If your hair root is blonde, gray, or white, the laser will be unable to detect and disable the follicle. For two, hair grows in stages. Since laser hair removal only works on active hair follicles, it typically takes multiple treatments to catch every hair follicle in its active phase.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin while the laser is treating your targeted area. This sensation is well tolerated and dissipates as soon as the light stops.
What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can cause temporary redness or swelling, which subsides on its own in the hours following treatment.
Is there any downtime with laser hair removal?
There is little to no downtime with laser hair removal. You should be able to resume your regular schedule immediately following your treatment.
What do I need to do before my laser hair removal treatment?
Stop shaving, plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for at least a month before your treatment. Also avoid sun exposure, since increased melanin in your skin can raise your risk for adverse side effects. Be sure to avoid sun exposure after your treatment as well to avoid a reaction.
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?
The number of treatments you need depends on a number of factors, including your goals and the color and quantity of your hair. We typically see optimal benefits after a series of 6 to 8 treatments spaced 8 to 10 weeks apart. Darker skin types may need a longer duration of treatment, due to energy adjustments needed to avoid damage to skin. We can help you devise your optimal treatment plan during your personal consultation.
