Some Q and A about laser hair removal

What’s the Biggest Mistake People Make When Getting Laser Hair Removal?

There are two big mistakes people often 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 at Satori Laser, you won’t have to worry about the former. Plus, you’ll enjoy the results so much that you’ll be eager to come back for more!

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 hair’s growing cycle, which is influenced by your hormones and genetics.

Does Hair Fall Off Instantly?

Some hair falls off instantly right after the treatment, while some hair takes up to 10 days to fall off. The reason is that most hair follicles have more than one hair. 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 5 to 10 days to fall off.

How Do You Know if Laser Hair Removal Is Safe for Your Skin?

Satori performs patch tests for clients before treatments to analyze the person’s hair, skin type, and sensitivity.

What Areas of the Body Respond Best to Laser Hair Removal?

As long as the hair is dark, all areas except the eyebrows respond well to laser treatment.

How Long Should You Go Without Shaving/Waxing Before You Get Laser?

To minimize skin sensitivity, shave before a laser treatment. If you’re someone who waxes, wait 14 days before your treatment.

Is It True That You Shouldn’t Be on Antibiotics if You’re Getting Laser?

Yes. You need to wait two weeks after you finish your course of antibiotics before undergoing laser hair removal. Antibiotics can make your skin more sensitive to light, so it’s recommended to talk to your physician before any laser treatment.
