How Long Is the Hair Removal Process?
The length of the hair removal process greatly depends on the individual’s hair quality as well as the amount of hair they wish to remove. That is, the thicker the hair, the longer it may take to be eliminated completely.
On average, most patients will need to undergo 4 to 6 laser treatment procedures in order to completely remove the unwanted hair.
During your free consultation at our Fort Collins laser clinic, one of our hair removal experts will be able to give an estimation of how many laser treatments you will require in order to achieve the desired results.
How Long Will It Take To See Results?
The amount of time it takes to see results after undergoing laser hair removal varies from person to person. However, most people see visible results after the first few weeks of their first appointment.
We advise patients that the best hair removal results will be apparent approximately 4 weeks after their final laser treatment.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
In a nutshell, laser hair removal doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal.
However, results can very well be long-lasting. In fact, many of our patients are thrilled to see that the hair removal lasts for several months after treatment, with some experiencing no new hair growth for years.
At our laser clinic, we offer follow-up appointments for when those pesky hairs finally start coming through again. By continuing with laser hair removal treatments over an extended period of time, you can guarantee long-term results.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Some patients are understandably nervous before undergoing any treatment that involves lasers. Therefore, it’s good to know that laser hair removal is a safe alternative to waxing, shaving, and plucking.
Laser hair removal treatments are completely FDA-approved and are safe to use on practically every part of the body.
At Xanadu Med Spa, our Cutera Excel HR technology cools the part of the body where hair is being removed. By doing this, the skin remains cold, thus reducing the irritation, redness, and blemishes that laser hair removal can sometimes cause.
Who Shouldn’t Undergo Laser Hair Removal?
Pregnant women should not undergo laser hair removal. Also, individuals taking prescribed Accutane as well as those with an active rash or sunburn are strongly advised not to undergo laser hair removal treatments.
If you are unsure whether or not laser hair removal is for you, don’t hesitate to speak to a member of our experienced team.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Before entering the clinic, we ask patients to shave the areas they intend to be lasered. This is a standard practice that allows the laser light to reach the specific area more quickly and effectively.
Do not wax or tweeze any hair from the body or face for a minimum of two weeks before your first hair removal appointment.
Do not apply any lotions or creams to the skin before your appointment as this may reduce the effectiveness of the laser.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Other Hair Removal Treatments
The list of benefits of laser hair removal treatments is a very long one.
This type of treatment is much longer-lasting, precise, and faster than more traditional hair removal remedies such as waxing, shaving, and tweezing.
