How many treatments will I need?

Typically, 6 to 8 treatments is adequate to provide permanent hair reduction. However, after a one-on-one consultation, we may determine that based on the density of your hair, hair colour and skin colour, you may require additional treatment (expect this is you suffer from PCOS). Our practitioner will advise you. It’s not unusual to need a touch-up treatment two years after completing laser hair removal treatments.

Will my hair ever grow back?

Actively growing hairs that are treated should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.

Why do I need 4 – 6 treatments?

Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth) Catagen (regression) Telogen (resting, not growing) Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage, (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. After 5 to 7 treatments, the area should be free from hair there is an extra treatment because of a few lucky hairs escape by not being active. The more hairs you have, the more likely this will happen. At Wimbledon Clinic Aesthetics we operate a fair use policy, so if you take out an eight treatment package but are happy at your 6th treatment, we will refund the difference.

Do I need to arrange time off from work for treatments?

No. Our treatment has no “down time” and requires no recovery time. You can have our laser hair removal treatment and return to work, school or other normal activities immediately.

How do I know it really won’t hurt?

Most people find our laser hair removal treatment comfortable, especially when compared to other hair removal methods and lasers. This is one of few laser hair removal procedures where the numbing cream is not necessary. Pain is subjective, however, so if you find it otherwise only talk to your provider, as settings can be lowered. If think you are extremely extra sensitive, please call us for a free patch test and see for yourself.
