How does laser hair removal work?
The laser uses light energy to target hair follicles below the surface of your skin. The hair absorbs the light, which destroys the hair follicle so it can no longer produce new hair.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Most people describe the laser treatments as feeling like the snap of a rubber band against the skin. Tolerable and quick, the sessions don’t require any sedative or anesthesia. However, you may request a topical numbing cream for the area if you prefer to dull the sensations.
Following the laser hair removal treatment, you may have slight redness and mild swelling – somewhat like a sunburn, but these side effects usually fade within 24 hours. You don’t need to schedule downtime following your appointment. You can go back to work or other daily activities right afterward.
How many sessions are needed for effective hair removal?
It’s best to schedule laser hair removal sessions until hair no longer grows. Most people tend to need about 6-12 treatments to achieve the best, longest-lasting results with some maintenance after that. The exact number of sessions depends on your hair type, density, and skin color. The reason you need multiple sessions is because hair growth has several stages. Laser hair removal is most effective when it affects hair in the active growth stage.
