What to Expect
Laser hair removal has been in existence for about 20 years, and there have been a number of technical advances in that time. The procedure is completely safe when performed by trained, certified technicians and is FDA approved. This method of hair removal is effective for all skin types and colors. It won’t damage your skin.
The procedure is short, and you can expect no downtime or recovery. This convenient method destroys the hair follicles and does not cause great discomfort. A numbing cream can be applied, as each patient’s pain tolerance differs. Some describe the laser pulse to feel like a snap of static electricity. Once your treatment session is completed, you can immediately return to work and your regular activities.
The Need for Repeat Treatments
You may need to undergo several treatments in order to effectively deactivate hair follicle growth. In addition, only about 10% of follicles are growing at one particular time, so multiple sessions may be needed to reach them all. Sessions should be scheduled several weeks apart. Completing all sessions is essential to ensure that hair does not grow back.
