Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

In years past, only men and women who had fair skin and coarse or dark hair were candidates for laser hair removal. But thanks to the state-of-the-art technology behind the ProWave LX laser platform, which uses intense pulsed light (IPL) for better hair-targeting capabilities, you may be a candidate for laser hair removal even if you have:

  • Fine hair
  • Dark skin
  • Light hair
  • Tanned skin

Laser hair removal with the ProWave LX is beneficial for both small and large areas, from your toes all the way up to your face and neck.

How does laser hair removal work?

ProWave LX sends waves of intense light beams through your skin and into the growth centers of your hairs. Each burst of energy is absorbed by hair pigments, which results in a heating effect within each targeted hair follicle, without burning or seriously elevating the surface of your skin.

As hairs heat up, they’re essentially destroyed on the spot. Your skin starts realizing that hairs are dead and no longer growing and works to push out the destroyed hairs over the following few weeks.

With each passing day and with ongoing treatments from Complexion, you start noticing fewer and fewer hairs. Over time, you experience a dramatic reduction in hair growth, and any hairs that are left behind are much finer and lighter and barely visible.

When does laser hair removal start working?

Even though many targeted hairs shed away naturally within a few weeks of your first laser hair removal session from Complexion, it takes several visits to experience serious hair reduction.

Since laser hair removal is most effective on actively growing hairs in the anagen phase, and each hair on your body is at a different point in the growth cycle, it takes several sessions to effectively target each hair.

Most men and women who undergo laser hair removal treatments at Complexion need anywhere from four to eight sessions, each spaced about four to six weeks apart. Even though you’re going to experience smoother skin with each session, it’s important to follow your recommended laser hair removal schedule to experience optimal results.
