How many treatments will I need?

Our laser hair removal & skin rejuvenation experts recommend 8-12 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Each hair grows at a different rate and goes through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser hair removal treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments , hair may appear unchanged; however, affected hairs are lifeless and will fall out with time. Special care should be taken to limit sun exposure to the treated area for at least a week. Sunscreen, and in some cases make-up, may be applied immediately after treatment. It is best to work with your laser specialist at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care to determine appropriate post-treatment care.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?

Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. In addition,  your laser specialist at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line for your skin type.

What are the possible side effects?

Although patients experience few side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your laser specialist at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

How does laser hair removal compare with electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, effective laser hair removal treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
