Laser hair removal is using a concentrated beam of light
to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser machine emits
a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light
energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles. And when
hair follicles are damaged future hair growth is delayed.
But it is important to know although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually cannot result to permanent hair removal. Usually, a person needs multiple laser hair removal treatments for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments might be needed as well.
How many sessions do I need for laser hair removal?
It is not possible to know exactly how many sessions of laser removal you will need without a consultation, because it all depends on how your individual body reacts to the treatment, type of skin, diameter of hair and the area to be treated. Most people need somewhere from 4 to 8 sessions for best results, and it’s encouraged that you come back for maintenance treatments once a year or so.
How long is the interval of treatments for the patients?
The frequency of your appointments depends on the area you’re treating, but on average patients are advised for every 4-10 weeks for 5-10 treatments to achieve the full results. After completion of this treatments plan patients can wait to see long term results and doctor will determine interval of treatments after that.
