Frequently Asked Questions
You may not be too familiar with laser hair removal. Therefore, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to provide reliable information.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Perhaps the most frequently asked question about laser hair removal is whether it is permanent. Firstly, it is important to note that results differ from patient to patient. Secondly, we should explain the hair growth cycle so you can understand how laser hair removal works and how long the results last.
The Hair Growth Cycle
Your hair goes through four stages of growth. These phases are:
Anagen – growing phase.
Catagen – transitional phase.
Telogen – resting phase.
Exogen – shedding phase.
Your hair is constantly going through all four of these stages. This happens to different parts of your body.
Laser Hair Removal
During your laser hair removal treatment, we use an excel HR laser to vaporize the hair at the root below your skin. That means that a laser can only reach the root of your hair when your hair is in the Anagen or growing phase. That is why more than one treatment is needed. You may see hair growth between your sessions, but this is normal. The hair that regrows has not been vaporized by the laser.
So, is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
The bottom line is that laser hair removal is more permanent than other hair removal methods. Once your final session is complete, you will be hair-free for many years. You may have to schedule a touch-up session when you notice hair growth again. However, the hair won’t be as abundant as before your treatments.
Can Laser Hair Removal Treat Intimate Areas?
Removing unwanted hair from your bikini area can be a tough job. It can leave you with rashes, ingrown hairs, and sensitive skin. Shaving and waxing this area can be uncomfortable. Laser hair removal can effectively remove hair from your intimate areas. We offer bikini laser hair removal and Brazilian hair removal services. Both treatments can provide long-lasting relief from unwanted hair. Many patients have successfully used laser hair removal to remove hair from their intimate areas and are immensely satisfied with the results. They are especially pleased with the hair-free years they experience after their final session. Feeling good is easy with laser hair removal.
How Long is Each Laser Hair Removal Session?
Laser hair removal sessions are relatively quick and easy. Of course, the duration of each session depends on the area you are treating and the number of areas you are treating. Small areas, such as your upper lip and bikini line, will be quick to treat. However, bigger areas, such as your legs and back, may take a little longer. Follow-up sessions are slightly shorter as there is less hair. No matter how long each session takes, it beats years of shaving and waxing. A few sessions can save time in the long run. In addition, these sessions are relaxing for most patients.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Are Needed?
Since laser hair removal targets hair during the Anagen phase, more than one session is required to reach all the hair. That is why we will create a treatment course to plan your sessions. We also specifically space your sessions apart to reach your hair during the correct phase. How many sessions you need depends on the area we are treating, your unique hair growth cycle, and the density of your hair. On average, we can successfully reach all your hair in about 6-9 sessions spaced 6-10 weeks apart. We wait this long so we can target your hair at the correct phase of its growth. This will determine the success of your laser hair removal treatment. The treatment course is usually sufficient to leave you hair-free for a few years.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Laser hair removal is not entirely pain-free. Patients compare the sensation to a rubber band slapping against their skin. However, the pain is considered to be highly tolerable and much less severe than waxing and plucking. It is also less painful than the rashes and ingrown hairs that arise as a result of shaving.
