Frequently Asked Questions
Our technology targets the hair follicle in the growth phase, which is when the hair responds best to the treatment. About 30% of hair is in this phase at any given time, which why you need multiple treatments to see results. Our device works by delivering energy to the hair follicle, where it’s absorbed by the hair pigment. This destroys the follicle so that the hair cannot grow anymore.
Laser hair removal is virtually permanent, however, people can grow new hairs throughout their life and fluctuation of hormones caused by pregnancy, menopause, the start or stop of birth control pills, or other illnesses that cause hormonal imbalances also triggers new growth. Most require maintenance treatments periodically after their initial series of treatments to control new growth and maintain their results.
The nature of lasers means that laser hair removal devices can focus light deeper down into the pores of the skin, getting closer to the follicle to treat it and ultimately prevent regrowth in a more concentrated treatment. This can mean that laser hair removal can achieve much quicker results than IPL because single hairs are heated to damaging temperatures quicker.
Six treatments are needed for successful hair removal to target all the hair in its growth phase. Appointments are scheduled between four and eight weeks apart depending on treatment progress.
To prepare for your laser hair removal treatment, be sure to shave the area at least 24 hours before your laser hair removal appointment. No direct suntan, tanning beds or spray tan for two weeks before laser hair removal appointment. Avoid the use of photosensitizing medications such as Retin A, Alpha Hydroxyl or Glycolic Acid, one week prior to treatment. For females, if you are having your bikini area treated, please make sure you are not on your menstrual cycle as you can become more sensitive to the treatment.
