How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 8-10 treatments for optimal long term benefits. There is a wide range of possible treatment cycles because of numerous factors that vary per individual. These factors include: hair color, hair thickness, hormonal levels, medications, area treated and the growth cycle of hair. Expect to need more treatments if you are dark skinned, taking hormones, or if you have any history of irregular periods, polycystic ovary disease, or a family history of excessive hair.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away. However, since some redness may occur, you may want to plan your work or social engagements accordingly. The use of sunscreen is recommended on all treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair. Shaving, however, is permissible.
