All you need to know before your next treatment…
Hair Removal After Treatment Care
Continuing with the conversation with our certified staff from the Ultimate Hair Removal Guide part one I asked next about the treatment length. Most clients understand that Laser hair removal is a process and this why we encourage patients to take advantage of our award-winning laser packages. The packages provide great value with the necessary treatment amount. We guarantee up to two years if you’ve opted for the correct package to help get rid of any unwanted leftover hairs. The full process can take anywhere from 6 to 8 treatments to show a major reduction. What happens in between each session is very important so let’s go into that in this next section.

General practices, Information, Methods Tips and Tricks
General practices and Important Information
Aftercare routines or regimens are very important for successful follow-up treatments. The aftercare following your treatment is just as important as the care before your procedure. The technicians gave these general rules and tips to follow.
Methods Tips, and Tricks
Staff stated before your next treatment that they do not need to see where the hair is growing because we’re looking for the root under the skin. The laser targets this to permanently shut down future hair growth at its cause. Hair left on the surface of the skin can increase the risk of burning, this is why we must have the area shaved. And don’t worry when shaving the area, it’s a myth that it will come back thicker and darker. It is also best to clean the area before coming in for follow-up treatments (i.e. no antiperspirants, self-tanners, bronzer, makeup, etc..
After your initial treatment hair can persist to appear for up to thirty days. It’s normal for hair to grow in between laser hair removal sessions, this is because hair grows in stages. The body has growth phases and this is why multiple treatments are vital in the reduction process. Treatments should be spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for the initial few treatments and if more are needed they should be spread out further over time.
Everyone wants to know “Is laser hair removal permanent?” So, we’re here to put the question to rest. Worry and stress-free, laser hair removal typically produces a drastic reduction in hair with a 95% patient approval rating. Most people need 8 treatments for a complete reduction. Typically touch-ups are needed to cover any new hair growth including but not limited to different laser types, strengths, and electrolysis for Vellus or white coarse hairs. As noted above PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome), thyroid or other hormone imbalances can increase the number of touch-ups. Here are some images from our many laser lines that hold best in class Gold Standard technology seals.
Laser hair removal systems like the many we use in Pittsburgh Pa are FDA cleared to safely and effectively remove unwanted body hair. Our laser techs noted hair may appear on the skin after the treatment. This is normal and these are hairs that are being ejected from the epidermis do to the laser treatment process. After your full set of treatments, our two-year guarantee can help clear up any unwanted spotted-hairs that may appear.
