How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
During this procedure performed in a doctor’s office, pulsing beam targets unwanted hairs at impressive speed. The beam can focus on areas of the body that are populated with particularly coarse hairs without interfering with surrounding areas.
As lasers heat the hairs, the change in temperature causes the follicles to become inflamed and in turn, enter a resting phase where new growth does not occur. The process takes place across several sessions and doesn’t require anesthetic.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The average amount of session, however, is between 6 and 9. This number may vary based on the area being treated.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser treatment does not guarantee permanent hair removal. Patients normally find that the hair will not grow back or will be reduced by up to 80%.
What To Expect After Laser Hair Removal?
Cool compresses and moisturizers may help the area treated. Wearing sunscreen for the following month to help prevent temporary changes in the color of the treated skin. Over the next month, your treated hair will fall out.
