Frequently Asked Questions: Laser Hair Removal
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser Hair removal works by beaming highly concentrated light into hair follicles, pigment in the follicles absorb the light, and this destroys the hair. Hair growing in different cycles, so each session destroys different hair follicles.
Is it permanent?
Laser Hair Removal can permanently disable hair in an active growth cycle on the day of your treatment. However, certain circumstances can trigger a dormant follicle to grow in. Dormant follicles are not active and therefore not able to be treated. If this should happen, a touch-up treatment would be required.
How long does it take?
Depending on the area being treated, a single session could take 15 to 45 minutes.
Does the color of my skin make a difference?
Different laser levels are used for different skin types. Even tanned skin can be treated safely, but always inform us if you have been tanning or exposed to the sun within the last three weeks.
When will I see results?
The hair that was treated will begin to work its way out of the follicle and will fall out between 14-21 days after treatment. 6-9 sessions may be recommended for complete removal of all hair.
Are there potential side effects?
Patients may experience slight redness for 20 to 30 minutes after the procedure.
