Laser hair removal is achieved through a series of treatments done every six to eight weeks. The average number of sessions needed to achieve significant reduction of about 80-90% in good candidates is about 6-8 treatments.
In between the treatments, some re-growth of hair is expected, as the hair goes through its cycles. Some hair could be in the dormant phase during the initial sessions and will be treated in subsequent treatments. Multiple sessions insures that all the hair is treated with laser hair removal. Avalon Laser recommend shaving in between each appointment.
Many patients require maintenance treatments once or twice a year to maintain the results. Very few patience see complete regrowth of hair, these patients mostly have blonde or white hair.
