Why do I need multiple sessions?
Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions in order to achieve desired results. This is based primarily on biological factors, including the cycle of hair growth. At Louisville Laser, we recommend a protocol of six sessions in order to achieve clearance in the treated area. Ask about our yearly membership option.
Does the treatment hurt?
People are often amazed the low level of discomfort they experience with our laser hair removal systems compared with their previous laser therapy experiences. At times clients will experience a sensation often described as a “hot pinch” or “snapping” feeling. The sensation only lasts for a fraction of a second, and a sensation of warmth or tingling may last for a short time afterward. Our lasers use a chill tip that helps to cool the dermis and neutralize any discomfort. We also offer numbing creams and post laser topical treatments to reduce any possible irritation.
Is laser treatment safe?
Laser hair removal is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in laser removal technology for all skin colors. There are no long-term health risks from laser energies used in our systems, and they are FDA approved.
What kind of results can I expect from each laser hair removal treatment?
Louisville Laser hair removal treatment will result in a hair growth removal. Additionally, hair will grow progressively slower, lighter, and finer with each treatment. It takes more than one treatment to affect all the follicles growing in an area. Most people achieve satisfactory clearance after six treatments, but individual results may vary depending on medical and genetic factors. Lighter colored hair may require more treatments than darker colored hair. At the end of your protocol, the target outcome is 80% to 100% clearance in the treated area.
How frequently do I need treatments?
Laser hair removal treatments are usually performed every two months. For areas that include the face and neck, treatments are spaced about five weeks apart. For hair removal in body areas such as underarms, bikini area, and stomach, spacing can be anywhere from six to eight weeks. For the back, chest, arms, and legs spacing can be anywhere from eight to ten weeks.
What happens after each laser hair removal treatment?
Temporary pinkness of the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The treated area will “shed” some hair over the next 3-4 weeks, and you may experience a period of hairlessness in the area while you wait for your next treatment.
