Laser hair removal treatment is now a very popular solution for getting rid of excess or unwanted hair, but you should always do a little research before having the treatment. The answers to the following frequently asked questions should help.

How long do individual treatments last?

Laser hair removal treatment using Advanced Intense Pulsed Light technology is very quick, and treatments on areas of the face can be completed in as little as 60 seconds. For larger areas, such as a woman’s legs or a man’s back, your treatment could be completed in an hour.

How many treatments will I need?

The length your course of treatment will depend on the area being treated, but it also varies from person to person. Specialist consultation with a laser hair removal expert will be able to give you a better idea, but generally speaking, you will need between 6 and 12 treatments.

Does it hurt?

This is one of the most commonly asked questions about laser hair removal treatment. Nobody who has the treatment should ever feel real pain, but you can expect a little discomfort. Most people report a tingling sensation or a feeling like a small rubber band snapping against the skin.
