Q. How Long do Laser Hair Removal Treatments Take?

Q. Are all Skin and Hair Types Eligible for Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
Laser hair removal can be performed on all skin and hair types. However, because the concentrated beam of light is aimed at hair follicles and absorbed by the pigment, the treatment works best on dark hair because it contains more pigment. Although blonde, red, gray, and light brown hair can also be removed by laser hair removal, the treatment is generally more effective on dark hair. But don’t be discouraged! We have several types of lasers to accommodate all skin types and hair colors!

At Millennium Wellness Center and Med Spa, there are several types of lasers used for laser hair removal treatment. Each laser is distinct and works on different areas of the skin, and on different skin types. Common lasers used include the YAG laser and the Alexandrite laser.
Q. When Will the Results be Noticeable?
The results of laser hair removal will be immediately noticeable after the first treatment. Usually, there is about a 15-20% reduction of hair after the first treatment, and the patient can come in after 4-6 weeks after each treatment to further eradicate hair from their chosen area. After a few sessions, hair will be permanently gone from the body. In some cases, hair does grow back after several years, but it usually grows back lighter and is much less noticeable than it was before any treatments.
Q. Is there anyway to Reduce the Pain of Laser Hair Removal?
When you walk in to get your laser hair treatment, the area that is being treated will be cleansed, and sometimes a numbing gel will be applied to reduce the pain in the area. This numbing gel is usually used on small and sensitive areas, especially those on the face.
Q. What should Patients do After the Treatment?
Although there is virtually no healing time for laser hair removal, it is suggested that patients avoid direct sunlight from hitting the treated area, avoid the use of tanning equipment, and follow the medical professional’s exact after-care instructions.
