Laser hair removal reduces the growth of unwanted hair from nearly any part of the body. This process destroys the hair follicle at the root of where the hair grows. Multiple laser treatments can successfully extend a hair-free period for months to years. A typical treatment course consists of 6 to 8 sessions. Treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
Additional periodic maintenance treatments may be necessary to remain hair free. Tanned skin or skin that has been exposed to extended periods of sunlight cannot be treated until skin color resumes its normal pigment tone. This laser treatment works best on lighter skin tones with dark hair coloring.
It is recommended that hair is shaved the day before treatment and stop hair removal products two weeks prior to each session.
