What Can I Expect After Treatment? Does the Hair Ever Grow Back?
After each treatment, you can expect a 20% to 30% reduction in hair. Hair will continue to grow for up to two weeks, and at that point it will start to ‘shed.’ Several treatments are needed to be effective in reduction. Your esthetician will advise you on how many treatments are appropriate for the area you are having treated.
How Can I Get the Best Value for my Treatments?
Avoid waxing, sugaring, tweezing or anything that pulls the hair out from the root. The areas to be treated should be protected from the sun including no exposure to tanning beds or outdoor tanning. Protect the area with an SPF of 30 or more. If you are dark skinned or have an old tan you can still safely have treatments with our machine.
To be prepared for your laser hair removal procedure, the areas being treated need to be shaved 24 hours prior for optimum results. Do not use any Retin-A, retinols, glycolic, AHA’s or any skin topical that provide a tingly sensation to the skin on the area(s) being treated one week prior to your treatment.
