Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Both men and women seek out laser hair removal. Common areas to be treated are underarm, legs, face, chest and bikini area. Laser results may be lessened with extremely fine, peach fuzz like hair.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, 4 to 6 treatments are adequate to provide permanent hair reduction. However, after a one-on-one consultation, your provider may determine that based on the density of your hair, hair color and skin color, you may require additional treatment. Your provider will advise you.
Will my hair ever grow back?
Actively-growing hairs that are treated should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.
Why do I need 4 – 6 treatments?
Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth) Catagen (regression) Telogen (resting, not growing) Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage, (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. After 4 to 6 treatments, the area should be free from hair.
How do I prepare for the treatment?
It is important that you shave the area to be treated 24 – 48 hours prior to treatment. You should not wax or tweeze for at least 6 weeks prior to your treatment. The hair needs to be in place in order to be targeted by the laser. It is also important not to tan 2 weeks prior to or after each session.
How often do I need to come in for treatments?
We suggest that you come in every 6 weeks for laser hair removal treatment to our Vancouver WA office. This allows your hair to go through a complete growth cycle. It’s not unusual to require a touch-up treatment two years after completing laser hair removal treatments.
