What does laser hair removal feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a slight pinching or stinging sensation.
How many treatments are required?
Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors, such as the size of the targeted area and the thickness, color and growth cycle of the hair itself. Each hair grows at a different rate and goes through three distinct phases: growth, regression and resting. During your consultation, we will be sure to evaluate all factors and outline the most effective treatment plan to ensure optimal results.
What can I expect post-treatment?
Immediately following treatment, the area may appear a bit red and slightly swollen. Three to seven days after treatment, patients may notice what appears to be a re-growth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of the treatment and are not re-growing. Between treatments, patients should not wax or pluck hair, but they may shave.
Following the treatment, patients can immediately return to their normal activities, however, due to some redness that may occur, sunscreen should be applied to any and all treated areas exposed to the sun.
