Laser and IPL hair removal is only able to target hair in the Anagen phase (most hair is in this phase) as an active follicle with attached hair is required to transmit the heat generated by the laser to destroy the hair bulb at its root.
As such, a session of hair removal is required every 4 to 6 weeks for 4-6 sessions for effective clearance of hair. Each session reduces hair growth, density of hair, and thickness of each hair in the treatment area.
The extent of results will depend on the area being treated, with some hair growing back sooner in certain areas than others. In general, results are expected to last for several years before a touch up session might be required, and even if hair does grow back, they are finer, more sparse and less visible than before treatment.
