1) Who can benefit from laser hair removal? Is it suitable for men, too?
This laser procedure may be used for both men and women. Any skin type may be treated including those with Asian and African American skin. The hair to be lasered must be pigmented.
Laser hair removal is an ideal solution for men with excessive hair on their back, chest, and legs. Facial hair removal with the PZ Laser Eos Ice Diode Laser is helpful for men who suffer from ingrown hairs and razor burn.
2) What areas can be treated?
Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere on the body.
Women commonly have hair removed from the upper lip, cheeks, neck, under arms, forearms, bikini line, legs, and abdomen. Men have hair removed from the face, neck, shoulders, upper arms, hands, chest, abdomen, back, buttocks, legs, and feet.
3) What results can I expect? Is it permanent
The PZ Laser Eos Ice Diode Laser causes permanent hair reduction and delayed regrowth of the treated hair follicles. In a long-term clinical study of 92 patients, all had temporary hair loss and 89% had long-term hair loss. Also, regrowing hairs were shown to be thinner and lighter than previously.
4) How long does it take?
All hair goes through three growth phases: active growth (anagen), regression (catagen), and resting (telogen.) The laser targets anagen hairs due to their abundance of pigment (melanin.)Because, at any one time, different hairs are in different growth phases, four to six treatments are typically required for best results.The length of each laser treatment may be anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. A few days after a treatment, the hair in the treated area may appear to be re-growing. However, within 5 to 20 days after treatment, this dead hair falls out.
