This breakthrough, revolutionary technology has been described as one of the more comfortable hair removal options available. If you can’t find the answer to any of your questions below, don’t hesitate to give us a call or come in for a complimentary consultation.
SHOULD I SHAVE BEFORE THE TREATMENT?
Shaving the day before or just prior to treatment is recommended and you may shave again twenty-four hours after treatment unless your provider tells you otherwise.
IS IT SAFE?
Laser hair removal is the most popular aesthetic procedure performed annually; it’s the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and well-researched use of lasers. The technology Haven has acquired has provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide. Because our machine utilizes low-heat settings, we’re able to provide a level of safety unlike any other laser hair removal procedure.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Typically, 4 to 6 treatments is adequate to provide near permanent hair reduction. However, after a one-on-one consultation, your provider may determine that based on the density of your hair, hair color and skin color, you may require additional treatment. Your provider will advise you. It’s not unusual to require a touch-up treatment two years after completing laser hair removal treatments.
WILL MY HAIR EVER GROW BACK?
Actively growing hairs that are treated should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.
WHY DO I NEED 4 TO 6 TREATMENTS?
Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth), Catagen (regression), and Telogen (resting, not growing). Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. After 4 to 6 treatments, the area should be free from hair.
WILL I NEED TIME OFF FROM WORK?
No. Our hair removal service has no “down time” and requires no recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work, school or other normal activities immediately.
WILL IT HURT?
Most people find our laser hair removal treatment comfortable, especially when compared to other hair removal methods and lasers. This is one of few laser hair removal procedures where numbing cream is not necessary. Pain is subjective, however, so if you find it otherwise, simply talk to your provider.
