How many Laser Hair treatments will I need?

Most areas require 6-8 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors - hair thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle. Each hair grows at a different rate and goes through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting.   Hair Removal treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally  in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatment may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.  Some maintenance "touch ups" may be required in the future for optimal hair reduction.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following your Laser Hair 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 you 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, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. If you are tanned we will not be able to treat the area so please wait until your skin is back to your normal skin colour.

What are the possible side effects?

Although patients experience few side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sun burn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Please contact the clinic immediately if Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

How does Laser Hair Removal compare with other hair removal methods?

Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Laser hair removal offers a permanent hair reduction for lasting results.

How does Laser Hair Removal compare with electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, ProWave effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
