The procedure works on virtually all patients with lighter to medium skin tones, but it does require more then one treatment. The total number of treatments varies from patient to patient and largely depends on characteristics such as the color of the skin and hair. The average number of treatments to see significant results is at least six over a period of one year.

Laser does not affect white hair and will not treat it effectively. Since the laser targets the melanin in the hair follicle, individuals with lighter skin colors will see faster results then patients with a more olive complexion.
