The more you learn about a cosmetic procedure, the better it is. When our clients take the time to learn about how laser hair removal works and the type of results they can expect to see, they are usually quite satisfied with their treatment. The following information can help you decide if this treatment is right for you.
When people first learn about laser hair removal, they usually want to know if they would make a good candidate for it. Results will vary from person to person, but since the laser works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicles, it is generally easier to remove dark hair.
Is the Treatment Permanent?
Laser hair removal is designed to provide permanent hair reduction. This is because when we treat active hair follicles with the laser energy, they are destroyed. Once a follicle is destroyed, it can no longer grow hair. You will likely need multiple treatments to see best results since the laser targets hair follicles in the active growth stage, and not every follicle is in the same stage at the same time. Getting multiple treatments ensures that you disable as many hair follicles as possible in areas where you would like to get rid of your unwanted hair.
There may be some hair on your body that tries to grow back, but any hair that does grow back tends to be lighter, thinner and overall less noticeable. These hairs can be targeted with touch-up treatments.
What to Expect After Treatment
The disabled hair follicles will gradually show less signs of hair growth after you receive your treatment. We work hard to time the treatments in a way that will produce the best results. We want to work with your particular hair growth patterns in order to treat the most amount of hair as possible.
