Miami Laser Hair Removal has compiled some questions and answers about laser hair removal.
Q:What does laser feel like?
The laser treatment may feel like a mild sting for a fraction of a second. It has a built-in cooling tip that not only helps to protect the skin but also helps to minimize the discomfort.
Q:How long do the treatments take? An upper lip and chin can be done in 5 to 10 minutes. Underarms or bikini lines usually take 15 to 20 minutes. Legs and backs take longer. Very often, follow-up treatments are shorter ( and less expensive) because there is much less hair to treat.
Q. How many treatments are necessary? This is very important to understand. Hair goes through 3 stages of development. It will only respond to the treatment in one stage called the anagen stage. At any given time, only one third of human hair is in the anagen stage. For this reason, multiple treatments are needed and must be spaced approximately 6 weeks apart in order to see the best and longest lasting results. Darker hair will respond better to laser hair removal treatments.
Q. Results- what should be expected? This is often no immediate change. Your skin may get lightly red or even develop a small crust that will peel. The laser may leave small red marks on your skin. The marks clear up in a few days. The hair has been destroyed will not start to fall out for 2-3 weeks. Many times it will get darker and thicker just before it falls out. Don’t worry if you do not see an obvious change immediately after your first treatment.
Q. Is it permanent? Treatment results may vary among patients. For some this may mean a significant decrease in the frequency with which you must shave or pluck. For others it may mean permanent cosmetic improvement because hair regrowth is minimal, very fine or completely absent. Everyone gets some re-growth with time regardless of the technology used. Hair that grows back will tend to be much finer and less concentrated.
