Most patients require a series of treatments over time. Some see long-term results that may last for years. Others may require multiple treatments over time to maintain their degree of hair loss. It is not possible to determine in advance how many treatments will be required or how long they will last.
Patients usually have the hair trimmed with scissors to a few millimeters above the skin’s surface in the treatment area. The laser and light source will be set with parameters that take into consideration the patient’s skin color, the hair color, the thickness of the hair, the location of the hair and the amount of energy needed for the treatment to be performed.
