What Results Can You Expect?
The laser destroys hair follicles, making hair re-growth impossible. But not all follicles are destroyed - only damaged. Once the damaged hair follicles heal, you will see re-growth.
In addition, the laser doesn't destroy dormant hair follicles. When the dormant hair follicles become active, new hair will sprout up. At any given time, 8-10% of the total hair follicles of all hair follicles are dormant.
The hair regrowing in the treated area will be finer and weaker. With 5-6 treatments over several weeks or months, you will see a 70-80% reduction in hair count.
Depending on how fast your hair grows, you will need a few maintenance sessions, but it will be nothing compared to your initial sessions.
If you decide to stop the treatment, vellus hair will grow back. Hormonal changes can also trigger some hair regrowth. However, the hair quality and quantity will be far less compared to the post-procedure.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Sensitive areas like the face and genital regions or armpits hurt more than legs and stomach.
The pain of laser hair removal is much more tolerable than the pain of getting waxed. People with a low pain tolerance can use a numbing cream, ask the medical professional performing the procedure for the use of anesthetic.
The total time taken by the procedure depends on the size of the area being treated. The upper lip area can be treated in 10 minutes while the can take up to full body can be an hour long.
Temporary side effects may include: Redness, it will go away within a few hours.
Aftercare and Recovery
Laser hair removal has no downtime. So, you don't need to worry about regular sessions disrupting your lifestyle.
A cold compress will help with any swelling and redness, should it appear. You can apply aloe vera gel to soothe the skin after the treatment.
Do not apply makeup, lotion, moisturizer, or perfume and do not pick on the skin.
Don't go out in the sun for at least 48 hours and apply sunscreen to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
