  • Why more than 1 sessions?

    Laser destroys the hair during the Anagen (growth) stage, i.e. when the concentration of Melanin is at a maximum level.

    However, in each Laser Hair Removal treatment, only 80% of the hairs are in the growth stage. Therefore, more than one sessions are required to eliminate all unwanted hair.

    To “deactivate” the hair follicle, usually 3 to 6 sessions are required. During each session, the number of hairs is reduced and they become “weaker” (thinner and with lighter color).

  • How often should hair removal be performed?

    Usually the duration between Laser sessions is from 4 to 10 weeks. Nevertheless, this depends on the anatomical area and the changes of hair growth rate. As the treatment continues, the duration between sessions becomes greater. Usually after the first session, a second one follows within a period of 4 weeks, while the 3rd session is usually scheduled after 4 to 8 weeks. As more sessions are completed, they are repeated less frequently.
