Laser Hair Removal Results: What to Expect
Most patients require a minimum of 5 laser treatments for long-term results and up to 8 treatments to achieve the best results possible.
Many follicles are completely destroyed or reduced to produce “vellus” or baby fine hairs. Those remaining are often light, not very visible and slower growing.
The easiest areas to treat quickly and successfully are the bikini and underarm areas in women, and the back in men.
In some areas such as the lip and chin in women, hormonal stimulation acts to increase hair in the area even as existing follicles are destroyed or reduced to the fine vellus hairs. Those areas may need maintenance treatments. However the relief from daily plucking and frequent waxing is worth it!
You can expect your laser hair results to last years and in most cases, results are permanent. However keep in mind you may need occasional touch-up treatments to keep the area looking its best, particularly with facial treatment.
