Laser Hair Removal
There are 5 types of laser types used for hair removal. It is important to start laser hair removal with the right type of laser.
Before the application, specialist doctors should decide which laser method is suitable for the person by evaluating the skin and hair structure. With this evaluation, the expected success rate from epilation increases and the possibility of side effects decreases.
Who Is Laser Hair Removal For?
Let’s point out that laser hair removal can be done to anyone who complains about unwanted hair. However, in order to benefit from this procedure, you must not have skin diseases. At the same time, it is expected that there will be no health problems that prevent epilation. Epilation is especially preferred for body areas where hair growth is intense, such as the genital area, arms, legs and armpits.
How Many Sessions of Epilation Should Be Done?
How many sessions of epilation should be applied varies from person to person. We need to point out that factors such as hair density, hair thickness, color as well as the skin color of the person are extremely important. Considering these factors, an estimate can be made about the number of sessions. In some people, a successful result can be obtained with 2 to 3 sessions. However, for some people, the number of sessions should be between 4 and 6. After a basic analysis, you will be informed about the estimated number of sessions.
What is Laser Hair Removal Time?
Of course, the number of sessions varies depending on which part of the body will be treated. For example, when it needs to be applied to the face area, the session is completed within 5 minutes. The time required for the genital area is around 10 minutes. If the application is desired for the whole leg, the session time can be extended up to 1 hour.

Approximately 3 to 4 days after the application, hairs or hairs begin to grow on the surface of the skin. The hairs that leave the root and come to the surface complete the shedding approximately 15 days after the application.
After the shedding occurs, hair or hair does not grow in the area where ice laser epilation was applied for 4 to 6 weeks. The second session of epilation takes place when new hairs begin to grow.
When to do the second session, that is, when the shed hair starts to grow again depends on the person. Generally, the second session is applied 7 to 9 weeks after the first application. On average, after 4 to 6 sessions, unwanted hairs or hairs do not grow in the treated area.
