light searches out pigment in the hair follicle, heats up
the follicle and kills the root of the hair.
People with brown to black hair and fair to dark skin can
all be good laser candidates. White, blonde or red hairs do
not get good results from laser treatment, as there is not
enough pigment in the hair. If an individual has hormonal
problems (i.e. overproduction of testosterone in a female),
they can still be treated, but may take many more sessions
that the average person. Laser is equally effective on males
Laser should feel warm and/or slightly prickly. It should
not feel "agonizing". It should, above all, protect the skin
and keep it safe.
The average person will need six to ten sessions, with
fallout of hair becoming noticeable after the 3rd or 4th
Small areas, such as an upper lip, only take about 30 to 40
seconds of treatment. Larger areas, such as the lower legs,
take approximately an hour long session.
After a session, an individual's skin may be slightly pink
for approximately 10-20 minutes. A person can continue with
normal activity immediately after treatment.
Treatment cycles vary according to cycles of average hair
growth. Facial areas are usually treated every six weeks,
with most body hair usually treated every eight weeks.
Most areas can be treated with the following exceptions:
Eyebrows are not treated due to there being too much pigment
within the actual eye, tattoos are not treated as treatment
may de-pigment the tattoo, and people with unhealthy skin
cannot be treated over the problem area (i.e. severe eczema
- It is safe to treat healthy skin, even on pregnant
- It is best to avoid tanning the treated area for two
weeks before and after treatment. Persons using
medications or creams that can cause light sensitivity,
should not be treated.

depilatory creams used when laser has become the choice
for hair removal. Shaving is allowed between treatments
and required one or two days prior to the treatment
