COMMON QUESTIONS for Laser Hair Removal
How often do I need to get Laser Hair Removal?
For the face we recommend laser hair removal every four weeks and every six weeks for the body. The period between face and body treatments are different because the hair grows in slightly different cycles. For optimum results we strongly recommend that you adhere to these timescales as much as possible. This is because we always want to treat the hair in the active stages for optimum clearance.
HOW PERMANENT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
All Laser hair removal is permanent hair reduction, there is no permanent hair removal available on the market. This is because many factors affect new hair growth such as medications, health issues such as PCOS, stress, hormones, pregnancy, age etc. Even when complete clearance is achieved new hair over time may start to grow as new follicles will be developed in the skin. This is why we recommend top ups as and when required.
