Every treatment starts with a consultation, where an in-person examination will take place and a treatment plan will be made. Prior to arriving to your hair removal appointment, you may be asked to avoid shaving and waxing, as well as sunlight on the treatment area. The secret to laser hair removal is, of course, the waves of heat energy being expelled from the laser at pulse-speed. The laser damages the hair follicles beneath the surface of the skin, disabling the growth process. One treatment session takes a minimum of 20 minutes, but beyond that the time is specific to the area(s) being treated. This treatment causes little to no pain or discomfort. Patients usually require more than one session to achieve the best results possible. However, with each session you should observe changes in hair growth; perhaps it’ll be thinner, growth slowing down progressively, etc. Patients that follow the proper steps instructed during their consultation receive the best results.
