LASER HAIR REMOVAL TIMELINE

“Laser Hair Removal is a journey, not a destination. With patience and commitment, you’ll get to the end results you desire! “
“Results vary depending on the individual” – something you’re probably used to hearing.
 
As vague as it sounds, it’s completely true and the results of Laser Hair Removal really do differ depending on you as an individual.
This is due to each person’s hormones and specific hair cycle. But what can you roughly expect from the start of your course to finish? At LaserPro Aesthetics , we give you a timeline so you can plan your journey to hair-free skin efficiently!

1st Treatment : Week 1

Week 1: 1st Treatment
The first, initial treatment is said to have the most noticeable effects as it ‘shocks’ the follicles with the treatment. The heat from the laser either weakens or completely destroys the hair follicle. Immediately after, the skin may be red and swollen – clients can experience a ‘sun-burn sensation’ this is normal and will subside after a few hours.

5-19 Days Post-1st Treatment
The destroyed hair follicles eventually give-way and the hair begins to shed and fall. Clients can expect to see hair-thinning and patchiness; some areas may even appear completely hair-free.

2nd Treatment: Week 6-8

The 2nd treatment sees greater results as the body hair goes through its resting and growth cycle, which is why a series of follow-up treatments are scheduled accordingly.

5-19 Days Post-2nd Treatment

The process repeats and the hair begins to fall from new areas.

3rd Treatment : Week 12-16

The hair growth is now noticeably slowing down but it’s important to attend your treatment sessions! Although it may not seem like you need to, it’s vital and all a part of the process.

5-19 Days Post-3rd Treatment

The process repeats and the hair begins to fall from new areas.

4th Treatment : Week 18-24

Between sessions, you can shave any hair re-growth but you’ll be happy to know, by this point it’ll be very patchy if not minimal.

5-19 Days Post-4th Treatment

The process repeats and the hair begins to fall from new areas.

5th Treatment : Week 24-32

You can expect the area to feel smooth and appear hair-free!

5-19 Days Post-5th Treatment

The process repeats and the hair begins to fall from new areas.

6th & Final Treatment : Week 30-40

After you have completed a full course, you can expect anything from 80% + reduction in hair growth.

5-19 Days Post-6th Treatment

After the course is complete, the treated area will feel smooth with a permanent reduction in hair growth.

Typically we recommend a minimum of 6 laser treatments for women and 8 for men. So you can expect to complete your course after 6-9 months.
