Laser hair removal has been a cosmetic treatment that has been around for a long time and that has only improved with time. Permanent hair removal is an easy and effective treatment that most people can benefit from.  

Does Laser Hair Removal Get Rid of All of the Hair?

Unfortunately, at this time, a one-time treatment session doesn’t fully get rid of hair growth. After one session, you should expect to have a 20 to 30 percent reduction in hair growth and within two weeks for your body to shed the eliminated hair. For semi-permanent results, talk with your med spa professional to better understand how to achieve your desired results.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Unfortunately, no it is not. However, it can dramatically reduce hair growth and produce temporary, semi-permanent results. It is recommended for optimal results to receive touchup treatments every six to 12 months.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal is the use of a laser that targets the hair follicle — heating it till it dies. The type of hair will determine how many sessions are required to eliminate it. Hair grows in cycles and so to eliminate all the hair from the area, multiple treatment sessions are required.  

When Should I See Results?

After your treatment, you should expect your body to shed the treated hair within two weeks. As far as achieving your desired results, it will depend on the area being treated. In most cases, permanent removal will require several treatments.

How Long Will Laser Hair Removal Last?

In most cases, you can expect a significant reduction in hair growth. However, complete “permanent” hair removal will usually last six to 12 months. For best results, touch-up appointments every six to twelve months can yield optimal results.  

Does Laser Hair Removal Have Side Effects?

Laser hair removal is a safe, highly effective treatment, especially when administered at a med spa like Dr. Beauty. You may experience irritation, redness, and swelling — all which decrease and diminish within days of your treatment. However, in rare cases, patients can experience some blistering or crusting of the skin, but the majority of patients, if they follow pre- and post-treatment protocol, will experience optimal results.
