How Will I Know If Laser Hair Removal Is Working?

It’s easy, you will know laser hair removal is working if

  • Your hair becomes slower to regrow
  • It’s lighter in texture
  • You find it easier to shave
  • Your skin is less irritated
  • Ingrown hairs have started to disappear
  • Your hair free periods in between your sessions are increasing dramatically

The results you can achieve from laser can vary depending on the type of laser used, laser settings, time frames in between each sessions, experience level of therapist performing your treatment and your skin type. For you to achieve the best results in fewer sessions in the safest way it is important that all these factors be in place.

It is important to realise that not everyone will progress at the same rate when undergoing this treatment, factors like hormones and genetics have a major part to play also. The majority of people will see a small reduction after their first session, this won’t really have a long lasting effect so if you do not continue on with treatment your hair will grow back as normal.

If however you have had 5-6 sessions and you haven’t seen any reduction in growth and are still experiencing the following you may need to speak to your laser provider.
