Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal requires that your skin and hair follicles be subjected to repeated pulses of laser energy. For many people, this sensation is moderately painful, often being compared to the feeling of a rubber band being snapped against the skin in the treatment area. At Dunes Medical Solutions Spa, we strive to make your sessions as comfortable as possible and can offer topical anesthetic ointment in especially sensitive areas to reduce your discomfort during your appointment. The sensation of laser hair removal is far less painful than waxing and can save you hours of irritation in the future.
How many treatments will I need?
The total number of laser hair removal appointments you will require will depend on a variety of factors including the area being treated, your skin tone, and the color and thickness of your hair. For your initial hair removal process, you can expect approximately 80% hair growth reduction once you have undergone 4-6 treatments. You can also schedule a maintenance treatment annually for as long as necessary to improve upon your results and maintain them to your satisfaction.
How long should I wait between sessions?
Most patients will need to wait a minimum of 1 month between laser hair removal treatments. Hair removal on the face may be scheduled approximately 4-6 weeks apart, while body hair removal sessions might take 6-8 weeks. This wait time ensures your remaining hair has a chance to regrow, so it can be effectively targeted during your next visit. Laser hair removal targets hair in the anagen phase, and your body will need time in between sessions in order to maximize the number of hairs that can be effectively shed following your treatment session.
Are my results permanent?
Laser hair removal will permanently reduce hair regrowth in your chosen treatment areas. Most patients find that their hair growth is reduced to the point where they can stop other hair removal methods. If you find that your hair is growing back in a way that you are not happy with, maintenance treatments may be scheduled to target new hairs that have begun to grow. Hair that does grow back in areas that have been addressed with laser hair removal tends to be much finer than the original growth, making it less noticeable when it does reappear.
What will it feel like after my treatment?
You may experience some tenderness or swelling in the treated area, which can be addressed with over-the-counter medication and/or a cold compress. If your treatment has been performed on an area of the body that is often exposed, you must take care to apply sun protection to protect your skin from UV rays. You should also avoid harsh scrubs or topical treatments for a few days following your appointment.
