Laser hair removal is now a staple of the modern beauty regimen, but you may not know how to choose the best provider to zap away those pesky follicles. Choosing a qualified, experienced technician or doctor will help you achieve maximum results and avoid potential complications. Below are common questions patients have about laser hair removal.
How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?
There is no set number of sessions for laser hair removal. Some patients only require a few sessions, but other patients may need up to a dozen. Most patients achieve results in four to six sessions, but because hair cycles vary, there is no way to determine the exact number of sessions you will need before beginning laser hair removal treatment.
How do I choose a laser hair removal provider?
Find an established medispa with a good reputation in order to protect yourself and get the silky smooth skin you want. Ask questions to gauge a provider’s laser hair removal skills, such as inquiring about how many sessions they have performed. An experienced technician will have completed at least a couple hundred sessions. Also, you won’t run the risk of your provider going out of business if you select an established provider.
What is the best laser for my skin?
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to selecting a laser for hair removal. The more lasers a medispa has, the more likely they will have one that is best for your skin color and hair type.
Ask your provider which laser is best for your skin and why. Some machines are best for removing hair on light skin, but darker skin require a specialized laser. Using the right machine on the right setting during laser hair removal is key to lasting results and few complications.
What complications can occur from laser hair removal?
Slight irritation of the skin is common for patients who have received laser hair removal; however, more serious complications can occur if the treatment is performed improperly.
A fly-by-night provider may not have the right laser for your skin type, or they may not know how to use their machines. Side effects can occur such as burns, increased hair growth, and hyperpigmentation if laser hair removal is not performed properly. Also, a qualified provider would not allow you to have laser hair removal if your skin is tanned, as it increases the likelihood of burns.
