Laser Hair Removal: 4 FAQs Answered Before Your First Visit
Hair removal is a very personal experience. Elite Rejuvenations’ Marion laser hair removal offers the option to never have to tweeze, shave or wax again. Smooth, flawless skin without the bumps or irritation is possible.
Using state-of-the-art procedures, we’re able to remove your unwanted hair using our Viora® IPL and YAG laser system.
Before you come into our office for hair removal in Marion, Ohio, we want to answer four very important questions to make your first session as comfortable as possible.
1. How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Hair regrowth varies from person-to-person. Some people go years without regrowth, but even when the hair does regrow, it’s finer and less dense. The hair is often lighter in color, too. Most procedures last several months to two years before regrowth, but you can schedule maintenance sessions to keep the area hair-free permanently.
Touch-up sessions are scheduled as little as once to as much as four times per year to keep the area smooth.
Viora® uses a highly effective removal process that benefits from YAG for maximum efficiency.
2. How Many Sessions for Hair Removal?
Ideally, you’ll come into our office when your hair follicles are in the growth phase because it’s the most effective time for hair removal. Multiple factors will determine the effectiveness of removal:
Typically, it will take 3 to 7 visits before your skin is smooth and hair-free. Scheduling sessions two weeks apart is most common and allows you to remove hair as quicky as possible.
3. How Old Do You Have to be to Get Laser Hair Removal?
Hair removal minimum age requirements can vary from one provider to the next. Some locations may allow people as young as 14 to have the procedure performed, but many experts recommend that the person should be through puberty for the best results.
Hormonal changes can cause rapid hair growth in teens and may produce unwanted results.
By the time a person is 17 to 19 and their hormones have settled, treatments are more effective. If the procedure is allowed for someone under the age of 18, a parent or guardian may need to be present during the procedure.
4. How Do You Prepare for Hair Removal?
The day of your procedure in our Marion laser hair removal office, there are a few things that you’ll want to do to prepare the area:
Wash and clean the area. Do not use creams, lotions or perfumes on the area that’s being treated.
Shave the treatment area prior to arrival. Irritation can occur in the legs if you shave within the 24-hour period prior to your appointment. Unshaved areas may need to be shaved by a technician which can add an additional charge.
Avoid tanning beds or sun exposure to the area for two weeks before the hair removal procedure.
If you follow these steps to prepare for your hair removal in Marion Ohio, you’ll achieve better results and will have less of a risk of side effects.
