Q: How many treatments does excel HR laser hair removal require?
The total number of treatments varies based on the area treated. Typically, 6-10 treatments spaced 6-10 weeks apart is recommended.
Q: Why does laser hair removal require multiple treatments?
Hair can take 6-12 weeks for it to grow from root to surface-this growth stage is known as the anagen stage and this is the perfect time to receive laser hair removal. You know when you are due for your next treatment session when hair in the treated area begins to grow back. It is very important to stick with the treatment schedule that your practitioners suggest-missing a treatment could allow your hair to enter the next stage where hair begins to detach from the hair follicle which can increase the number of treatments originally required.
Q: What areas can be treated?
Due to excel HR’s superior technology, exceptional results are achievable on all hair types-fine or coarse. Commonly requested areas include underarms, legs, bikini area as well as men’s chest and back.
