How many treatments will I need?
Hair grows in cycles and many factors influence it hair growth. Age, ethnicity, medications, hormones levels, and even location of the hair on the body influence the length, coarseness and color of hair and the overall number of treatments needed. On an average , 5 – 7 treatments, scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart will approximately reduce hair growth by 70 – 90 % .
- Anagen is the active growing phase in which the hair bulb is intact. The hair grows in both directions, upward and downwards
- Catagen is the regression phase when the lower part of the hair stops growing but is not shed, and the body absorbs the lower third of the follicle.
- Telogen is the resting phase. The hair bulb is no longer present and is now a club hair which will fall out or be pushed out of the follicle by the new anagen growing hair .
Our goal is to give you the best results possible in the fewest amount of treatments. We are driven by results!
Is hair removal painful?
There is some discomfort that most people compare to the snapping of a warm rubber band on the skin which is mild and tolerable. We use cold ice packs to minimize the discomfort.
After the treatment, you will likely experience redness and/or mild swelling which normally dissipates after a couple hours. Makeup can be applied not long after the treatment.
Is laser hair removal safe?
It is very rare that scarring and infections occur since the skin is usually not broken.
