How successful is the treatment? Will the hair return?

Laser hair removal is very successful. The length of laser hair removal treatment depends on each person's makeup and body chemistry. But once hair follicles have been treated and destroyed, they can no longer produce hair. Hair that is entering the anagen phase (growth phase) after laser treatment will need to be treated again.

What happens to the skin after the treatment?

Within several minutes of the treatment, the treated area will become slightly red and puffy. This reaction subsides, and within a few hours the area returns to normal. Since the laser does not burn or cut the skin in any way, no bandages are necessary and you can return to your normal activities immediately.

Does it hurt?

Most laser clients describe the treatment as mildly uncomfortable, but not painful. For sensitive facial and body areas, however, some people do ask for a topical anesthetic cream.

Is it safe?

Yes. The laser parameters were carefully defined to inhibit regrowth by studying the anatomy of the hair follicle and matching the laser light and pulse duration to the follicle size, depth and location to safely and effectively remove hair.

What should I expect?

Around 3-10 days after treatment hairs will begin to surface. Most of these hairs were treated and are falling out, it is not regrowth. The hair follicles need to purge the hairs that remained under the skin. Please refrain from waxing, plucking, or bleaching between treatments (shaving is okay).
