Answers to Your Laser Hair Removal Questions Contd.
Question #6. Will laser hair removal work for my hair color and skin type?
Most hair colors and skin types can be treated with laser hair removal. There are different lasers that work for different hair colors and skin types. Red, blonde, and gray hair can be more difficult to treat than other hair colors. Be sure to ask about the type of laser being used to treat your specific hair color and skin type so you feel comfortable with the equipment that will be used during your treatment.
Question #7. How long is each laser hair removal session?
The amount of time required for each session will depend on the area of the body that is being treated. Small areas, such as armpits or the upper lip can take as little as five minutes. Larger areas like the legs or back take around 30 minutes. Each person is different, so the amount of time will depend on the amount of hair that needs to be removed.
Question #8. What areas of the body can laser hair removal treat?
Because eye damage is a risk factor for laser hair removal, you’ll want to avoid treating areas near your eyes. Most other areas on your body can be treated. The most common areas for laser hair removal are armpits and the bikini area.
Question #9. Can I shave between my laser hair removal appointments?
Yes! You actually want to have your hair as short as possible before your treatment, so we suggest shaving the day before your treatment, depending on how fast your hair grows.
Questions #10. How quickly will I see results from laser hair removal?
While it may take around give treatments to see optimal results for hair removal, you will begin to see results after your very first visit. After your first treatment, you will see that some hair follicles have been removed, and you’ll see less hair growth between your first treatment and your next.
