How many sittings are needed?
There are several factors that can affect treatment success.
It depends on the area treated, type of hair and frequency of the visits .
Most patients notice significant reduction in the number of hairs that re-grow in the targeted areas after treatment .
On average, most people will require a minimum of 4 to 6 treatment sessions.. But certain body areas like face may require more sittings and also dark and tanned skin may need more sittings.
Why there is need of multiple treatments?
Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments. This is because laser works best when hairs are in early growth stage [ referred to as anagen stage ] and does not have impact on the catgen and telogen phase of hair cycle, which means hair may be dormant or in falling phase.
All the hairs are not in this phase at the same time . The laser’s beam is attracted to the pigment in your hair, and thus it only works when your hair is in the ‘active’ growth phase.
As all of your hair is in different phases at different times, you will need several treatments spread out over a number of weeks to ensure the laser ‘catches’ each of the hairs in their growth phase at some point.
Several treatments are required in order to give your hair follicles time to go through the full growth cycle and ensure good results.
What should I expect from the treatment?
You’ll notice a dramatic reduction in the density and thickness of hair in the treated area.
After Laser sessions are completed , you notice long term hair growth reduction and any few hair that re occur would be of fine in texture and light in colour.
What is the process for treatment?
It is advisable that you don’t wax or pluck your hair just before coming for the treatment.
Shaving of the desired area can be done a day earlier of the procedure as same day shaving can cause exfoliation of the skin making the skin more sensitive.
After Laser treatment is begun the settings on Laser machine are set according to your type of hair and colour of the hair.
Once the Laser probe is applied on targeted area you may feel a sensation of an elastic band being snapped against your skin. As the laser is moving all the time the sensation is well-tolerated by most people. After multiple sessions , over a period of time , hair become thin and there is usually very less pain .
What are post laser treatment instructions?
You may have a slight reddening or local swelling on the treated area, that would typically disappear in a few hours. Rarely you may experience itching, bruising or the skin may appear lighter or darker. This would return to normal in few weeks
Thus you are advised to avoid wearing tight clothes, nylon clothes atleast for couple of days.
Avoid steam and hot water baths, sun baths , swimming perfumed products and thick creams for couple of days.
It is advisable to avoid direct sunlight during the treatment. At our clinic, we have made the laser treatment room as per standards required, and further instructions are given by the trained professional.
Can I do waxing in between my laser treatments?
If you do waxing or plucking in between sessions, the Laser has no follicle to target and also waxing affects the hair growth and affects results.
If you have waxed or plucked the treatment area you would have to wait 6-8 weeks for follicles to produce a new hair.
Is laser hair removal safe ?
Laser is a clinically tested treatment; FDA approved and has undergone rigorous trials to ensure patient safety and efficacy
It only affects the specific structures of the hair and follicle, leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.
