How Many Treatments Will You Need?
The laser can only affect those follicles that have a hair in them. Only about one third of your follicles are growing at any given time. Therefore it will take multiple treatments to affect all the follicles. Most people require around four treatments. This does vary, and may take more.
Hair grows in a 3-phase cycle: it has a growing phase, a dormancy phase, and a resting phase. Only hair that is in the growing phase can be successfully removed with the laser. At any one time approximately 85% of hairs are in the growing phase. This is why a series of treatments is required to get effective hair reduction.
