How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
What Should I Do To Prepare For The Treatment?
What Should I Expect After The Treatment?
Once the laser hair removal procedure is complete you are free to return to your normal activities immediately. Some clients may experience a slight reddening around the hair follicles immediately following the procedure. This reaction typically disappears within a few hours. The use of sunscreen at or above 25 SPF with UVA/UVB protection is recommended on all skin areas exposed to the sun for approximately the next four weeks following the laser procedure. It is also recommended that the client avoid heavy sun exposure for the next 10 days. Application of ice or aloe gel after the procedure will generally facilitate healing and cooling. Approximately two weeks after the laser hair removal procedure the body will exfoliate the dead hairs.
Are There Any Side Effects with Laser Hair Removal?
Are The Result of Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
The FDA has cleared the GentleMax Pro® laser for permanent hair reduction. Since lasers have only been used for hair removal for approximately 20 years, it is difficult to predict the effects of the procedure and how long it will last. However, studies have shown that clients are generally see between 80-100% reduction in the areas treated.
How Many Minutes Will My Session Take?
Amount of minutes used per session is based on the amount of hair in the area as well as pain tolerance. Due to the fluctuations in a person's hormones each month, some sessions may be more painful than others due to more hair growth causing a change in sessoin length. These are average length times for areas being treated. Some patients may need more minutes, others may need less.
