What Can You Expect
The length of your laser hair removal session can be as quick as a few minutes or last up to an hour or more, depending upon the size of the area (s) being treated. You can resume all normal activities after treatment, being careful to protect any treatment areas that are exposed to the sun. Avoid saunas, hot tubs and very hot showers for 3 days. Because the laser can only target follicles that are in the active phase of growth (anagen phase), more than one treatment is typically necessary to destroy a majority of the hair follicles in a given treatment area. The number of treatments will vary from person to person depending upon your skin type, hair color and the coarseness of the hair being removed. Appointments will be scheduled 5-8 weeks apart. For best results, it is important to keep your appointments within this protocol.
The appearance of the treated area immediately after your laser session will vary from person to person depending upon the area treated, skin type and sensitivity. Immediate after-effects may include transient redness and mild swelling which will disappear in a short time. Most people return to normal activity right away.
