To find answers to the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) about laser hair removal:
How long does a laser hair removal session last?
Human skin has millions of hair follicles, all of which are in different phases of growth. Laser hair removal can only remove those hair follicles that are in active phase of growth, that’s why treatments must be performed at varied intervals. Since each human is unique, your dermatologist or medical esthetician will develop a custom treatment plan tailored to your needs, but we typically recommend 6-8 treatments six to eight weeks apart. The length of a laser hair removal session depends on the treatment area, varying from 10 minutes for a small area, to 30min for a large area.
How should I prepare for my laser hair removal session?
Laser hair removal doesn’t require any complicated preparation. We ask our patients to shave the area to be treated the night before, stay away from the sun (don’t have a tan) and avoid using skincare products on the affected area for better results. You should not have waxed the affected area for 4-6 weeks before your laser hair removal session as the laser requires a hair follicle target to work.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Other hair removal methods
In comparison to other hair removal methods, laser hair removal is the most effective method that allows us to remove unwanted hair permanently. One of the key advantages of laser hair removal is that it’s faster than other methods and provides a much longer lasting result. Furthermore, laser hair removal is hypoallergenic in comparison to chemical hair removal methods, and causes less pain and discomfort than waxing, and ultimately prevents ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal is ideal for darker hair, namely brown & black. People with grey, white, silver or red hair would benefit more from electrolysis which is also offered at Toronto Dermatology Centre.
A popular misconception is that laser hair removal is too expensive, although the cost of laser hair removal is much cheaper than other hair removal techniques in the long run.
To find out other benefits of laser hair removal, speak to our dermatologists or medical estheticians.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of laser hair removal sessions varies based on various factors such as skin type, hair colour, density and texture. Typically, the average number of treatments is 6-8, although some people are sufficiently happy after 4 treatments. A 6-8 weeks interval is required before any additional treatment is performed, because hair grows in various stages. After 4-6 treatments are performed, the area will be free from hair. Some patients benefit from an annual touch-up treatment to maintain their great treatment response.
Does laser hair removal treatment hurt?
Laser hair removal is much more comfortable in comparison to other hair removal methods. Our LightSheer Duet laser system at our Toronto Dermatology Centre provides laser hair removal sessions with the least pain of any laser hair removal system on the market.
