How does it work?
The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the energy and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow.
How long does laser hair removal last?
Some people see permanent results, while some people may need a touch-up treatment every six to twelve months. Results vary depending on your hair type and skin type. Proper preparation and aftercare can also affect how long the results last.
Can anybody get laser hair removal?
Anyone can get laser hair removal, regardless of skin color or hair type. However, people with light skin and dark hair tend to see faster and better results than people with light hair or a darker skin tone. Any man or woman can have the treatments, though pregnant women should wait until after they’ve given birth to begin their sessions.
How many laser hair removal treatments do you need to get?
In most cases, you’ll need between six and twelve treatments. These treatments are spaced out four to eight weeks apart. The waiting period is necessary to target every hair follicle while it’s in an active stage of the growth cycle.
