Some Q and A about laser hair removal

  1. What’s the biggest mistake people make when getting laser hair removal?
    There are two big mistakes people make. Not seeing someone who is licensed or certified with experience, and not coming back enough times to complete the full treatment. With years of experience to offer at Satori Laser, you won’t have to worry about the former. Also, you’ll enjoy the results so much that you can’t wait to come back for more!

  2. How many treatments are usually necessary?
    It varies from person to person. Typically, it requires more than six treatments. The process is only effective during your hairs’ growing cycle, [which is influenced by one’s] hormones and genetics.

  3. Does hair fall off instantly?
    Some hair falls off instantly right after the treatment and some hair takes up to 10 days to fall off. The reason is that most hair follicles have more than one hair and when a beam of light (the laser) passes through the skin disabling the hair follicle, the hair that leaves the epidermis falls off instantly and the hair that is under the epidermis will take from 5 to 10 days to leave the epidermis.

  4. How do you know if laser hair removal is safe for your skin?
    Satori does patch tests for clients before treatments to analyze the person’s hair, skin type, and sensitivity while doing a patch test.

  5. What areas of the body respond best to laser hair removal?
    As long as the hair is dark, all areas except eyebrow respond well to laser.

  6. How long should you go without shaving/waxing before you get laser?
    To minimize the sensitivity of the skin, shave before a laser treatment. If you’re someone who waxes, go 14 days before your treatment.

  7. Is it true that you shouldn’t be on antibiotics if you’re getting laser?
    Yes. You need to wait 2 weeks after you are done with the course to do laser hair removal. A person may become more sensitive to light while taking antibiotics, which is why it’s recommended to talk to your physician before any laser treatment.
