Laser hair removal is a tried and clinically proven method of permanently reducing hair. When an operator is correctly trained, and machine settings are correct for the individual, it is effective. There are medical contraindications that can cause a laser to be ineffective often these medical conditions have gone undiagnosed; however, during the consultation phase, a well-trained practitioner will be able to determine if you should visit a medical specialist for diagnosis.
Under typical client conditions, laser hair removal provides a fast and effective means to remove unwanted hair from anywhere on the body. The most common course length for effective hair removal is 6 to 8 sessions. This is to treat all the hair that has passed through growth cycles. Hair is shed within two weeks after the laser treatment, hair regrows following a 4-week cycle, and therefore, each laser treatment is 4 to 6 weeks apart to catch all hair within a six-session treatment length. After the six sessions have been carried out the client will often need one or maybe two sessions per year after that.
