How many treatments will I need?
It is sometimes hard to tell how many treatments you might need in advance. Hair develops in phases, and we can only treat hair in its active, visible stage. Therefore, the number of treatments depends on how quickly the untreated hairs appear. For significant clearance, most men require a course of 4-6 treatments, which are spaced at least 6-8 weeks apart.
What are treatments like?
Patients will feel a series of short snaps, somewhat like a rubber band snapping. Treatment times vary depending, of course, on the size and number of areas needing to be treated.
The beauty of this technology is that it effectively destroys the hair itself without harming the surrounding skin. You may be a little red afterward, but that typically goes away in a matter of hours.
Is it permanent?
Everyone asks if it is permanent. Yes, it is totally permanent. The hair we treat with the laser will not grow back, and patients can expect an 85 percent reduction in hair after 4-6 treatments. As we age our hair patterns change, so this does not prevent the possibility of new hair growth over the years.
