Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair, be it from a condition that causes excess hair growth or just the desire for a new look. Most individuals will require a series of treatments over time which will result in the removal of the unwanted hair. Most of the lasers and light sources are FDA cleared for permanent hair reduction, which means reduction over time. Some individuals will see very long term hair removal which may last for many years. Others may require maintenance treatments over time to maintain their degree of hair loss. It is truly impossible to determine in advance who will require how many treatments and how long the hair will remain gone.

It is truly impossible to determine in advance who will require how many treatments and how long the hair will remain gone. As stated above, laser hair removal works best in those with dark hairs on lighter skin, however, newer technologies and newer lasers and light sources have made the procedure safe and effective in those with darker skin and those individuals of color.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE BEFORE A TREATMENT?
Apart from shaving, avoid any other hair removal methods such as waxing, threading or hair removal creams for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. Avoid sun exposure for 1 week and sunbeds or any kind of fake tan for 2 weeks. You should thoroughly shave areas to be treated or patch tested around 8 hours before your visit. Skin must be hair and stubble free for the laser to be operated safely.
WHAT ABOUT AFTERCARE?
After the laser treatment avoid heat such as hot baths or showers, saunas, and steam rooms. Avoid sun exposure for 1 week after treatment and avoid sunbeds throughout your treatment course. Avoid vigorous exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation.
