Laser hair removal is a safe and successful skin treatment to permanently remove hair growth for all skin types. Laser treatments impair the active growth stage of the hair follicle without harming any surrounding tissue. Therefore, hair growth is delayed, producing long lasting satisfying results.
Depending on the body area, only 30% or less of your hair may be in the active growth phase at any one time. A series of treatments will be required to achieve the long term improvement that you desire. These treatments are spaced 4-12 weeks apart based on your hair growth cycle.
The average patient sees a 48% reduction in hair growth after 3 treatments and up to 80% lasting reduction after 6-8 treatments. Results will vary from patient to patient. After treatment completion, any remaining hair will usually be finer and lighter in color. Most patients require 1-2 touch up treatments each year.
