5-7 laser hair removal treatments for permanent results

Each laser requires different number of treatments for permanent results. With the Lightsheer by Lumenis, the results are noticeable even after the first treatment. The hair becomes thinner, lighter, and patchy with each consecutive procedure. Some patients require maintenance treatments or touch ups after 5-7 treatments. I would recommend getting a package with a service guarantee or maintenance plan to make sure that most of the hair is gone and you are happy with the results.

There is NEVER any PERMANENT hair loss in every patient...

There is NEVER any PERMANENT hair loss in every patient for every hair. Most patients will achieve an 80% hair loss or more after 4-5 treatments, which are given monthly.

Hair may gradually return over 1-3 years. This hair can be treated with “touch-up” treatments every year or so.

Hair removal treatment permanent

It takes roughly 6-8 treatments to have a 90% reduction. Those treatments are spread out every 4-6 weeks. In most cases people will have to return once a year for touch-ups to maintain the results. You should keep your scheduled appointments so your results turn out well. If you skip treatments it will take a longer process to get your results.
