How many treatments will I need?
The average patient requires 5 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. This is based on the lifecycle of the hair. 5 treatments will typically produce at least a 60% permanent reduction in the hair with most patients needing periodic touch up sessions. After approximately 6-7 sessions, patients experience at least an 80% permanent hair reduction.

Does laser hair removal hurt?
Patients will feel warmth or a prickly during the treatment but after there is no discomfort. You may be a little pink/red after the treatment but that lasts only 1-2 hours at the most. There is no down time and you are able to apply make up immediately after your treatment.
