What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. It has been available to the public since the mid 1990’s. The efficacy of laser hair removal is more advanced now than it has ever been before.
How Many Treatments do I need?
Hair grows in several phases and a laser can only affect the currently active growing hair follicles. This is why several sessions are needed to target all hair follicles. Multiple treatments depending on the type of hair and skin color have been shown to provide long-term reduction of hair. Most patients need an average of 4-6 treatments. Treatments are recommended every 4 weeks to target each cycle of hair in its growth phase. Individual results vary.
Am I a good candidate?
LHR works best on light-skinned individuals with dark hair. Laser does not work well on light-colored hair, red hair, grey hair, white hair, as well as fine hair of any color. Laser will not be performed on areas which have been exposed to the sun less than 6 weeks prior to the treatment day.
